I use a Mac and LOVE it...and agree with the above post. It is what a Mac does best. I haven't come across much of anything my Mac can't do as far as software..got everything here my PC has and it works better. I have been using a Mac for a good number of years and they just keep getting better. I have an iMac in my class room and that is the bomb.

I bought a MacBook Pro about 2 years ago now, around the time they came out with the all aluminum case whiz bang thingamajig. I LOVE IT. I was a PC guy, grew up PC, worked for a semiconductor company for 5 years building PC towers. I know Windows inside and out, so I felt like a traitor when I bought it, but I was tired of all the problems that windows has (crashing, hanging, slowing down, ridiculous installer programs, horrible registry management, horrible disc space management, excessive "theatrical" eye-appealing gizmos with sub-par hardware that bogs down performance, etc, etc, etc).

I have NONE of these problems with my MacBook. Want to install something? Click 2-3 times and it's done. Want to connect to your wireless internet? Click the network, type the password, and it searches for all the right settings and you're done. Want to set up your own wireless network (with the Airport/Airport Express)? Less than 5 minutes and it's done. Want to plug in a wireless mouse? Plug in and it works...no heavy installation of drivers or anything noticeable. No more rebooting or shutting down the computer every day because windows slows performance down with ridiculous over tasking operations in the background. No more virus issues, worries about pop-ups, no task heavy virus protection CONSTANTLY running in the background sucking the life out of your computer.

The biggest thing I can say about Apple products and their software/hardware interoperability is......"It just WORKS".

If you're wanting to do photo/video editing, Apple has you covered. Aperature, iMovie, Adobe Premier, etc, the list goes on. If you need to do office type document, spreadsheet, iWorks. And heck, if you want to make sure the documents, spreadsheets and slide shows are compatible with those left in the stone age, Apple even has Microsoft Office Mac version (which I have and love...way smoother than the ACTUAL Windows version).

I could rave and rave and rave about Apple, but I'll just sum it up with this. After being a PC/Windows kid, teen, young adult, still young adult (hey I'm only 27 haha) who has worked in the PC semiconductor business for 7 years total, I now own: an iPod, an iPod shuffle, an iPhone (2 of them if you count the 2G one I still have), a MacBook Pro, an Airport Express, and a Time Capsule. *EDIT* and I'm about to buy an iPad for an eReader, mobile computing capability.

Once you learn how to use them (which takes all of about a day) you will be glad you switched. If you have any questions, just let me know.

I use Macs for iMovies. My daughter uses Final Cut Pro. I'm on my 4th Mac and I like it better than my PC. I will likely by another. I'm curious to see what Apple does with Steve Jobs (the brains of Apple) taking a medical leave.

I agree 110%...I have all the Mac Microsoft Office programs and they work MUCH better than the same version on my PC. I am a big Power Point user and it rocks on my Mac...and the same files I create also work on my PC...can't ask for anything more. The only problem I ever had with a Mac was I used one to it's death. I never had any virus problems or spy ware etc. give my Mac any trouble. I can't say the same with my PC. When this one goes I will replace it with another Mac.
