I have a Macbook Pro, Intel proc, runs windoze better then most pc laptops, i do use parallels which for you non mac users allows you to run windows and mac simultaneously without rebooting (as a virtual machine, windows runs within osx), honestly I don't think I've loaded any windows programs in months, there's not a single
program I personally use that a mac equiv (which is usually better) isn't available, but I must confess I don't do anything sailing related on my mac I like paper charts
and my chartplotter
. Even my logitech remote
has mac software
for programming it.
I don't have to download constant updates, i don't have to pay for virus software
life is AMAZING, when i open it "poof" my desktop
is instantly there, no sleeping, crashing, locking, standbye, goodbye... crap
No more uninstalling programs that leave crap all over the place if they eventually uninstall. No installing drivers, I plug
stuff in it just works.
I have a unix background and I honestly have no idea why I ever owned pc's except for the lower price
I cant think of one single
advantage to a windoze pc. Oh and Safari is the world's greatest browser.
PS I hate ipods
