    I'm not anti-apple, but I thought this was funny from your link.


    Some of that excitement is comes from Apple's famed "reality distortion field," in which a combination of brilliant marketing and Steve Jobs' aura of being ahead of the curve creates an inflated degree of excitement about the company and its products.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    No doubt, we switched from a PC to a Mac a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love it

    As a graphic designer, I've only worked on Macs since college. They're not perfect by any means, but I've enjoyed working with them.

    Re: Mac > PC, says the people

    So this spring I went to the Microsoft CIO conference in Redmond. I am sitting there in the 2nd row and I open up my macbook. A senior VP from microsoft comes over to give me a hard time. My honest answer was: "Find me a laptop with a 15" LED screen that has such a small form factor and is this fast, and I will buy it." He agreed that it was the best hardware available. Of course he was happy to see me running win7 as a VM on it, and using outlook/office for all my work.

    Of course he was happy about Win7, outlook, etc, because MSFT still wins at that point. In reality, they have nothing at all to do with hardware (in a PC sense), and if you want to put Win 7 and MSFT Office on Mac hardware, what do they care? Sure, they would rather you have it on Non-Apple hardware, but in the end they get the same $.

    I see your setup a lot out in the field.

    I personally like to roll with a tablet. Very light, you can write on the screen, Touch the screen, web browsing is way easier with a pen, yet it has all the features of a normal laptop. I think they both have pros and cons but I have always been a pc guy. I just can't stand when mac users go "vocal" on me.

    Re: Mac > PC, says the people

    IMO, Macs are a lot like the Iowa Hawkeyes athletics. Don't mind them most of the time, in fact, at times I even actually like using them. It's the fanboys who talk **** about all things not Apple that I can't stand.

    To me Apple is hardware. OSX means nothing to me even more so in a corporate environment. Heck if Apple threw out some Macs with Windows on them, I would probably consider them for here.

    Actually that is the perfect analogy.

    I am more interested in mac's now that they can run windows and windows software, I just can't get past the fact that comparable laptops are twice to three times as much in price.

    If Apple controlled 93% of the market they would get a lot more hell than Microsoft. There are many good reasons that Apple has such a low market share when in comes to personal computers.

    A good example of this is Google. Notice how shakey people are about Google these days now that they are huge and doing some questionable things? Large companies take a huge hit. I actually think it would be awesome if Apple grabbed a top share of the market. Would be funny to see how it would have to shield itself against the same crap that everyone else on top gets.
