Are you a Mac or Windows user? (As your "primary" platform...)

It seems there's a fair amount of Windows users in here and if Apple can reach out to you guys with the iPhone, you're more likely to get a Mac at some point...

I disagree, I'm a Windows user, and the iPhone is not making me anymore likely to get a Mac. It works just as fine with Windows as it does with a Mac, so there is no need at all.

jtlax3, you will NOT regret it! I switched and it has been glorious. You will find yourself being an Apple sales rep to your friends. It eats away at you:mad:

thats what I like to hear!


I have been doing tech support since my senior year of high school and the businesss next door to mine has macs and never had problems. So I finally got fed up with the crap with my laptop and my desktop and saved up and bought a Macbook Pro I haven't looked back since and I cannot wait 'til leopard comes out it looks fantastic. I still do have a Vista desktop and a Dell XPS laptop for lan parties and gaming though. But after watching the keynote yesterday I may not have to touch a windows machine ever again in the next year or so.

For me, I don't really care. Both do the same thing. You can do everything on a mac that you can on a PC. It just depends on your own personal tastes. I find it more convenient to have a PC. Also, there are small things that you can't do on a Mac (right click or w/e) that I would do. But as for Mac Pride or PC Pride, it's just either way. They are both operating systems that do the same things. Even in the Mac commercials, you see that a PC is better for some things, and a Mac is better for others. But even then, you can do a lot of entertainment related things on a PC, and lots of businesss related stuff on a Mac. It again just comes down to personal taste.

you can right click the new mighty mouse has right click and on the laptops you just put two fingers on the mouse pad and click and that is right click as well as two fingers to scroll around pages and stuff which I have never seen on a windows laptop only the dumb things around the edge.

Mac... hands down. I rock garage band until my eyes burn. It's harder and harder to use a PC each time I am forced to. Unless Apple folds, I don't foresee myself buying a PC, ever.
BTW, this new safari has a spellchecker... thats great.

firefox has had that. Try out the command>f function to find a word in a page its really neat. Me and my musician buddies always use garage band its great.
