My first computer was a Macintosh and because I am a graphic designer, I was convinced that the Macintosh was superior to PC's when it came to anything visual. I have grown up with a MAC, although I have had to use a PC when I worked for the man in various corporations. I have found that my Mac was easier to use and could be fixed without the whole IS department descending upon my office and spending a whole day trying to find a virus/bug/troubleshooting. I on the other hand, could single handily fix my Mac and have it up and running before you could say overtime. I didn't need a 600 page manual to understand it, and I could install software faster than you could say Bill Gates.
I have recently been forced to use a PC and I am beyond frustrated. First of all, my web site looks anemic because the PC doesn't do justice to graphics, and nothing works like it is supposed to. I cannot believe the down time, how many times it crashes and all the notices I receive that I need to install another program. I hate the PC and I wish everyone in the world could use a Mac and see that Bill Gates has everyone drinking the Kool-Aid. Seriously, it may cost more, but you will save you money in the long run, and Mac geeks are a lot more fun than PC geeks.
