My shop computer was windows 3.1 until 5 years ago. I used it for one program (print artist. An old but excellent program for creating stencils of words for tattoos. Plenty of fonts, you can easily resize, arch or manipulate them and make them with just a black outline) Then I got a new pc with windows xp. That was completely virus ridden about three years ago so I replaced it with an e machine and a Toshiba laptop for home. In April of this year I bought a Gateway with Vista for the shop, and it is totally slow and buggy and I HATE vista. In May I replaced the Toshiba with a macbook (and fell in love) and then in June (the 29th to be exact) I got iPhone. One week later I bought the iMac for my shop desktop. On July 18 I bought my husband a macbook for his birthday to replace his dell laptop. The kids' computer is a brand new gateway, and it's already slow and frustrating for them, but I'm not going to buy them a mac too.So, your home computers, are they mostly mac or mostly PC?
Would your experience with the iPhone or iPod make you consider buying a Mac?
Have you recently converted to Mac? If so, why?
If you don't have a Mac, what keeps you from getting one?
Me? I bought my first Mac in 1999 - a B&W G3, which is still running just fine and used in a midi (recording) setup. It took a few years, but I'm finally a convert, and the last functioning desktop Windows PC in my house is about to be replaced with a Dual Quad Core MacPro. We've become a total Mac Family in my house.
A few years ago I also bought my brother his first Mac... a Mac Mini. He then became "Apple Certified" at his job (his previous job) and has turned into quite the Mac Fan himself. He just started working for an Apple Store a few weeks before the iPhone release.
With the introduction of intel-based Macs, there's no reason NOT to get a Mac now...
So I've bought three different macs since May, my iPhone and a 30g ipod for my daughter's birthday. I'm hooked. I still have the gateway at the shop for the print artist program, but it's under the desk and no one talks to it. I'm completely done with microsoft products. I'm an Apple fangirl now!
