I'm a happy traitor

Postby Simulacrum » Tue Apr 24, 2007 7:31 pm

Recently I did something I never thought I'd do. I switched from PC to Mac.

My work gave me a Mac laptop recently, and it didn't take long for me to fall in love with it. On my PC, every time I needed to work in 2-3 programs at once, they would eventually all crash and screw me over. Not so at all any more. All programs run lightning fast and never become non-responsive.

Everything is so much more sleek and streamlined as well. All in all, I've just been much, much more impressed with the way Macs work than I ever was with my old PCs. So yesterday when I came across a Mac G5 Tower for an amazing price I picked it up. ;-D

Anyone else out there a Mac user or am I in this boat all alone?

Sounds like you had a crappy PC. O:-)

Enjoy the Mac though. ;-D

I have a Mac at work and I notice it's fairly faster and more intuitive than a PC. One of my colleagues doesn't think so, as most times he starts up his Mail program, it crashes and gives him an error to shut down. This probably had more to do with the IMAP server, but his Mac must be corrupted...but I digress.

I'd rather use a PC though, mainly because of PC games, but I do find like a good deal of people seem to have, that a Mac is fantastic for video editing and desktop publishing.

I'm typing this from my Mac at home. They can make me use a PC at work, but where I have a choice it's Mac, and has been for the last 12 years.

I'm on my third - a Mac Mini - and I haven't had a thing to complain about yet. ;-D

I recently switched as well, and have an apple laptop. Definitely love it. I still like PC's too, just don't know if I'll buy one again. Macs just don't have the problems.

I have always found Macs clumsy to use, and difficult to navigate. I primarily use PCs, but have a mac at work. They may crash less but when they do have problems, which is often enough, I have absolutely no idea how to fix it. :-t :-t

So you're saying he has nothing to worry about? :-b

I have a G4 at home that I've had for 4 years. The thing is a hoss. I haven't had a single problem with it, although I do need to update some software. You will find, however, that there will be times you wish you had a PC. I got a cheap-o laptop about a month ago. It's nice to know that if I really need a program for something that won't work on a Mac, I still have the PC to go to.

Welcome to the other side. It's not as bad as they make it out to be, but don't buy into all the hype, either. Macs aren't some Godsend or anything. They're just different than PCs.

What OS are you running?
