First off let me say that I don't drink the Kool Aid of ether a PC or a MAC. This year we switched our work laptops from a HP to a Apple Mac Book Pro and shortly after I replaced our home Dell PC with a iMac. For the most part I am extremely pleased and for a while I actually felt like I stepped up in the computer world. Virus's aside (which I never really got on my PC because of good protection) I cannot believe how many beach ball hangups I get on both of my machines. Along with that is the kiss of death screen fade screen that happens occasionally but always at the wrong time. For what it's worth I have had way less blue screen crashs on a PC. Others in my department are having the same thing with their MBP's. I still love my Mac and will still buy another for the home but now after a year of using it and without being under the influence of Kool Aid there is still just as many problems with a mac than a pc.
