Have worked with macintosh ever since that really funny looking original ones came out.
Working in an Industry driven by creativity, I could never go another way, it seems to always be whatever we were exposed to first and started with. However had I owned a PC I still would need to use Mac for global compatability
Oh-oh...you're not trying to incite a superiority contest are you? These Macophiles are a proud bunch. We PCers are still considered wusses you know.
No matter. It might be heresy, but at the end of the day, whichever you use, it's still just an operating system. If it works for you, and you can get your work done efficiently...hey, whatever floats yer boat, huh
PC because: 1. much cheaper 2. much more customizabe softwarewise (install whichever OS you want to) 3. much more customizable hardwarewise (RAM, processors, etc) 4. much larger variety of designs to choose from (many manufacturers).
It all depends on what you will being using you computer for... PCs are great for all kinds of things, but what I really like about Macs are that they don't get viruses. I also think that Mac makes better laptops.
Well, from personal experience, my mac that I've had for 3 years has never once gotten any malware. On that note, ever PC that I've had has gotten one. Sure they probably do exist, but I've never gotten one and I don't know of anyone that I know getting one, so I guess I should have said less susceptible.
PC, but if I could go back I would have done more work on Macs when I was young. Back then Macs were seen as more of a entertainment computer for playing games and making art while PC's were used for real business. In some cases that's still the way things are, but there is certainly more of a Mac influence on the tech world with iPods and iPhones being so popular.
The only Windows here is in VmWare and I hardly ever run it. Oh, and on an old laptop that I leave out when we are out to give dumb and lazy thieves a reason for not searching harder. I have even thought of deliberately infecting it just to be more mean
Since Spring, most of my day is on my iPad. If I could post to HP and do Mac programming on it, I would hardly use any of my Macs any more either.
Mac. All the way. I've used a Mac for the past 10 years now and can't even think of going back. Macs are more user friendly than PC's. The best part is that I don't have to worry about some sort of virus or trojan going into my Mac.
Generally :- MACs - are people who are more artistic than technical minded. They want to swicth on and go. That is fine obviously but the drawbacks are, hardware costs are more expensive, support (can be) more expensive. Software can be more expensive. But MACs do work - so maybe from a I just want to ghet it done and screw the cost point of view - then it does the job.
PC's tend to be for people who dont mond getting their hands dirty. The OS is more open, maybe too open. You can turn and tweak your PC into many different things.
I am a PC user - but I love the graphics of a MAC.
I personally think the way it is going - Google and their online apps and everythiong done through a browser approach, plus 'cloud based software as a service' means there is a new option on the horizon. Greater choice = cheaper pricem, usually, which is good for everyone.
