Hi guys. I work in IT and was recently offered a mac book as payment for a job that I was doing for a client. So, I thought I'd join up here and find out from you great folks just what it's all about. As a bit of background, although I work in IT I'm a relative newcomer to computers. I wasn't around them a lot growing up and have really only had a lot to do with them in the last 4-5 years. One of the things I don't see a lot of is Mac's (which disappoints me as I hate MS with a passion). I do know a couple of people who own them though (unfortunately they live over 1000km away so I can't have a lash at theirs to come to grips with it) and I've always found them to be pretty easy to use. To my question though. What it is in the hardware set up that makes the Mac different? People often ask me why they're different and all I can really say is that the hardware is different. I figure that if I'm going to join the world of Mac users it would be good to understand what makes the Mac what it is and just how it ticks. I know that things like RAM are different in the Mac but after that, what other differences might I expect to find if I opened one up? (not that I'm going to, just hypothetical) If you know your way around a pc how hard would it be to do the same with a Mac? Any help you could give here would be brilliant as it will help me on my quest to be a more "rounded" IT specialist. All the best, Tim.
