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.
Anyone else out there a Mac user or am I in this boat all alone?
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
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 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.
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.
