Mac is for trendies, pure and simple.
There is nothing a Mac does that a pc does not do faster and cheaper.
I've worked as a PC tech for years, and in that time, I've come across lots of Mac problems. I've also worked as an administrator, and let me tell
you, setting up a mac network was one of the worst headaches evah!
The local college I worked at had Macs in the journalism and art depts, and that is the trend in most universities and colleges. Why? Because 8 years
ago, Quark, Photoshop and ProTools were awesome software, and ran really well on Macs.
Since then, hardware has got crappy, and software sloppy. If you look online, you will see speed comparisons, and for the money you pay for a Mac, a
PC will number crunch twice as fast, and all with the same software that you would run on a Mac. Why would you wait 4 minutes to save a media file,
when you could do it in 2? Why, to be cool, different and edgy when you say you have a mac of course!
Here's a tip for people with windows problems: If it works, don't update it! Stop installing software you don't need. Get protection if you go to
dodgy sites. Don't use 64bit unless you know what you're doing.
I have 2 vista, 2 xp, and there's no problems, except older hardware that doesn't have drivers for vista.
For the people with slow vista, you need faster hardware, especially fast RAM, not the cheap crap that came in your machine. If you can, upgrade your
main drive to a 10,000 rpm sata, and if you have a hefty gfx card, make sure your pc is getting enough ventilation. You wouldn't believe how many
random problems I've fixed on peoples computers by adding a vent and a good fan to their cases. Oh, and clean that dust out every few months
P.S. I love my iphone. Very handy.
