    LOL…Mac diehards are too funny!  That being said, I can’t agree with Alex more.  Just because most firms are using PC, don’t let that be the reason you go with it.  Just know that you will more likely need to learn how to work on a PC…not that is all that different anymore…. if you plan on getting a job at a firm in the US so if you can get some play time on one just to understand the interface in comparison to a Mac, it’ll be all the better for you.

    Lei, I think you got the point.  Read the comments on here.  There are multiple PC users telling you real stories about how their computer has lasted many years with no problems and that they paid a lot less than if they would have bought a Mac.  The angry Mac users (not all are angry) on here are just stating very biased opinions, not facts.  I’m glad you can read through the blind faith and chose to save money.

    That is pretty much what I said.

    I’ve seen a lot more L.A.’s moving in this direction.  Have you had any compatability issues with any consultants, clients, etc. after you changed over?  I’m asking because I’m more of a PC guy (I understand Windows and it’s inner workings way better then Mac OS but most due to length of time/experience) but I have become an equal fan of Mac, and Apple in general, and while most people I work with use PC’s (clients, consultants, public agencies, etc.) a good friend of mine who I sometimes do some work with has switched over to Mac.  While we haven’t had any issues as of yet, our collaboration has been pretty simple and small scale but I was wondering if you’ve had any issues with larger projects/clients?  Thanks!!

    Not sure what you are “not really” about. All I said was that more LA and CE offices ( a lot more) use PCs – not that I prefered them – just that they are used more if you plan on working for someone else.

    Well put.  Plus that “secret” attitude is what practically killed them years ago.  I think it’s the fancy graphics and pretty facade that draws Mac users to think like that..lol.

    LOL….you crack me up!  Just for reference…my 6 year old HP laptop is still up and running strong and has kept up with my Mother-In-Law’s G5 (actually it’s faster then the G5…we tested it) and her new i7 27″ iMac.  Though you did give me a good chuckle.

     

    BTW, using Best Buy and PC World as your benchmark for buying and specing any computer (PC or Mac) is just completely the wrong direction to take.

    I love this arguement too….too many wires…If you’re comparing a desktop PC to an iMac then yes…as long as you don’t need a second hard drive, or DVD drive, then opps…more wires….oh yeah, let’s hook up to the internet…well well, iMac can’t hook up wirelessly…a desktop PC can with the switch of a wireless network card.  Wired mouse and keyboard?  What is this the dark ages?  Wireless knocks off two more wires.  Mac’s “Profusely Corded” campaign was so stupid it just made them look clueless.

     

    Oh….and the “Airbook”….yeah, that is nothing more then a skinny netbook PC but oh yeah….Airbook has no disk drive….yeah very usful indeed.

     

    LOL…the Mac vs PC arguement is so rediculous…they both do the same thing with different looks….one looks prettier but the other has way more capablilities and compatabilities.  Either way…they both have good and bad points…just that Mac users tend to ignore all the problems where PC users confront them.

    I do own and use both (perfessional and personal use) and they both have problems!  Yes, there’s not doubt…can’t even argue that PC’s get more (alot more!) virus’ but in my experience the Mac’s freeze up way more then my PC’s and at least the PC’s bounce back faster.  Plus, Alex mentioned the Ctrl  + Alt + Del as if it was bad.  At least PC’s (really Windows) give you a more direct way out of a computer freeze situation…Macs you have to just grin, bear it and watch the little rainbow circle go round…lol.  You did bring up a good point regarding OS systems…the problems really stem from the OS not the hardware…you can get PC hardware that will far excede the top of the line Mac/Apple hardware in some areas and Mac over PC in others.  It’s really a an Mac OS vs Windows debate.

    MauiBobs comments always have such an angry overtone to them…Take a chill pill and get a PC…

    surprised you could even write that without using ctrl+alt+delete.. or were you in blue screen of death mode?

    Never had it.  Blue screen of death is oft user caused. Your wacbook must have crashed again while you were typing this because this is way too short for you.
