If you have that, you’ll be treated to quite a wide scope of material. This text is very clear, and the wealth of information is staggering

The graphics manipulation apps like Photoshop and Illustrator works great on OSX, plus it’s more secure and Virus-free. I’m really planning to buy a MacBookPro, … sure it’s a bit expensive but it’s really worth it, every penny!

One thing i wanted to point out about PC is that it’s not just only about Windows, it’s also Linux as well. And Linux+PC make a excellent combination. PC+Windows is simply not an option.

I’ve done a little of everything on both and found the PC to be the better choice for almost everything.

And to everyone saying PCs need expensive virus protection, I’ve had a PC consistently for 15 years and never had a virus, spyware, or spent anything on software to protect from them.

Everyone just needs to realize that apple is just as bad as Microsoft – they both suck. Switch to open source.

Sometime I suffered with my PC blue screen and arbitrary unexplainable freezes. With MAC its is different, you simply focus on your work not noticing you’re using a machine. Everything works. So, it is true ONCE YOU GO MAC, YOU NEVER GO BACK!

Apple computers are more expensive and have less expandability. These compararitive failures almost cancel eachother out, so what computer ya want seems to me to be a personal preference. I love the elagance and dependability of Mac’s operating system, which to me is the bottom line. So I am a ‘Macosexual’.

I’ve spent no additional money on it since, and it works fine.

I used Macs regularly in school, and other than a different mouse and different locations for things like the maximize/close buttons, they seem to be pretty much equal in performance.

I am still (for now) a PC user because I support PC systems and networks. Apple has made some very bold moves in the last ten years.

First off, OS X, is a derivative of FreeBSD, so to say Linux isnt a desktop OS is rather misleading. Apple shows that is could be with a talented team of commercial interests behind it. Secondly, they moved to Intel platforms.

What for the life of me I cannot figure out is why they don’t sell their OS off the shelf for anyone that is technically astute enough to install it on a so-called PC. Of course, but that I mean a PC running Windows. Why don’t they create a Boot Camp for Windows so you can run OS X under Windows on say a Dell or HP computer, and of course vice versa?

There’s really no money in hardware unless you can produce it on a massive scale. That is why Mac’s have lower hardware specs and are a bit more expensive. If Jobs wasn’t so proud and headstrong he would have realized this years ago and M$ would be well on there way to being a distant memory. He sooooo could have capitalized on the failure of Vista.
