Take it from someone who used to be anti-Apple and am now a Mac fanatic. I think you can sum it up like this. With the Mac you have the best of both worlds, you have OS X and you can run Windows which means there is no software you can't run. It doesn't get any better than that. Everyone says how expensive the Mac is but I take exception to that. Bought my first PC in 1984 - ComPaq deskpro - list price $7,000.00. Second PC in 1995 - Dell Pentium Pro - cost - $5,500.00. Third in 2002, Dell 4550 - cost $3,195.00. Now iMac i7 w/8GB with iWork '09 installed - cost - $2,438.009 incl. tax. If you buy high end they last a lot longer and are not obsolete as quickly as cheaper models. The iMac displays are just breathtaking and the thing is a "beast" when it comes to performance. Just for grins, yesterday I watched 8 movie trailers in QuickTime (8 QuickTimes running at once). I was blown away. You won't regret buying a Mac.Ive been a PC user all my adult life, and am finally seriously considering buying an iMac. Someone please tell me the pros and cons over PC's. Thanks.
I promise you that once you go Mac you
will never go back to PC. I am not trying
to be one of those "smug" Mac users, I
am just being totally honest -- and you
are hearing it from someone who was very
well versed in Windows for years on end.
Let us know what you decide to do.
