Thanks Tom. I wonder if Macs ever really need maintenance. From what I am hearing they rarely break down. I have an IPhone I have had zero problems with for two years. I have heard that the graphics and word processing are more advanced than windows.
I heard from my computer repair man which incidentally I use at least once a year to repair and fix problems. He says a Mac is overpriced and you simply pay for the name. I have also talked to Mac users who tell me they have zero problems with them.
Actually I have never heard of an Asus computer.
It is a low-end computer. If you are doing e-maill, facebook, etc and little else, it is adequate. If you are into heavy duty gaming, graphic designs, mass e-mailing. If not on 24 hours a day, it can be a decent computer.
Oops - didn't comment on the actual question. Reasons to buy a Mac - increasing in popularity, easy to use interface (similar to other Apple products), cool factor (I know, but it's there!), Reasons against: not a good computer for complex work.
Thanks so much for your response. I see most professionals using Macs and I figure there must be a reason why they all choose Macs over IBM
Like I said the virus issue is important to many. I was Public Relations Dir. and office manager for a trade association. I kept 10 Dell desktops and three or four laptops running without any trouble.
A Mac would be better than a PC for graphics work (Photoshop) and writing - I guess I meant that there's less software for Macs than PC's so less variety. But it's really down to what works best with you - highly recommend trying both out :-)
The Mac is going to be more expensive--as a rule--some exceptions. Most of the software you will be using will be made by Microsoft, which is windows. There are all types of PCs and several types of Mac. Check them out. See what feels best for you.
