Dave Dave Dave .. You might be a big boy, but I am thinking me and Melvin might just take you
Ted I am not brainwashed by the Mac cult. I haven't come across technology yet that is without flaws. Its like the machinery I operate. If its a machine, it is going to let you down, and it will be at the most inconvenient moment possible!
I was like you, I was a PC fan since the Ps2 IBM in the early 1990's, I had 2 pc and a sony Laptop in my home. I majored in computers years ago, and Bill Gates was king...
But then one day, just 18 months ago, I took a bite at the forbidden fruit, an Imac, now, my PCs are gone, I have 2 IMacs and two Macbook pro.
I know they are not perfect, but they are years ahead of PCs. I only added one piece of software outside the mac family, screenFlow ($69), I do videos, trainings, movies, etc , I can create a training video and in minutes is in Youtube, facebook or viddler, or I can create a nice presentation video and make it into a DVD. No extra software to buy.
When I installed my MIFI, instead going to all the many steps for a pc as shown in the manual, I just plugged it, and voilá! it was working right away.
Updating my operating system was a breeze, and instead paying $220 or so for the top windows 7, I just paid $49 for a more stable and faster system, and the installing..a breeze.
I can create a great presentation, with all kind of cool stuff, and in seconds I can make it into a PDF and/or Powerpoint presentation, I can receive a word document, excel, and powerpoint from any PC, I can open it, read it and correct it and send it back as Word, Excel, and powerpoint to be read by any PC, and I don't need the expensive Microsoft office to do that.
I turn on my computer, and in a very short time I can start working on a project, no long wait..
And rarely goes frozen, no need for antivirus, one day I was "homesick" and for $49, I made my computer into a windows machine, working simultaneously in windows and Leopard, it is like having another computer for $49 plus the cost of Windows 7, but then I realized home was not home anymore, everything is easier in my Mac operating system..I have found computer paradise...
