I just felt an urge to post this after my less than one year old company Thinkpad with Windows XP just crashed on me with a "Fatal Error" message. The PC lost my profile, and I got a blizzard of memory-related error messages before it shut down. As I'm working from my home office, this pile of brick is as useful to me as a door stop until our IT Dept can fix it (probably requiring a fresh reinstall of Windows). I switched on my year-old iMac, and logged on to my company server via VPN without skipping a beat. First thing I did was to shoot off an email to IT about the problem, advising them that I was now typing on my home iMac, and telling them we should ditch these unreliable PCs. Since moving back to the Mac a year ago, I've added two Macbooks (Blackbook, and recently an AlumiBook) to the iMac, all connected wirelessly via Airport Extreme. Gone are 3 desktop PCs and a laptop PC, together with the unreliable Linksys wireless router and 2 range expanders. I'll likely add a MBP sometime next Summer after the new processor is released. The Macs and the Airport Extreme have worked flawlessly without any crashes or maintenance needs. I have now semi-retired from my duties as the home computer guy, and my family couldn't be happier. While many gripe that Apple products are pricey, I would gladly pay the difference again and again because it has saved me the time and the hassle. Now I need to figure out a way to move my company away from the PCs and on to the Macs. If Macs are good enough for IBM, they should certainly be good enough for us.
