Hello people! I am very curious about the reason you bought your (first) Mac. Did you get your machine for a particular task (maybe because this task is only possible/easier with OS X)? Because of the battery (Only for macbook owners of course)? Was you upset with malware? Because you already had an iPod/Pad/Phone? Was you just curious about how a mac would perform for you or was it just because "macs are cool"? As for me, it was a "random" purchase. My old laptop fried and my choice was between a Sony Vaio and a Macbook (same price, higher specs on the Vaio). But in the end, I'm much happier with this Macbook than with any other PC and I would never come back.
