Switch to a Mac?

To buy a Mac or not to buy a Mac

Considering the switch from Windows to MacOS?  Thinking about adding a Mac to your household or business?  So far, they’re great systems.

Some questions to consider:

  • Laptop or Desktop?
  • Do you need to keep Windows?
  • Are you a Microsoft Office user (there is a specific version for Mac OS)?
  • Does the learning experience terrify you?  You’ll have to spend some time with your new system.
  • Do you live near an Apple store?

Desktop – iMac

We tried the iMac and have simply loved it. The sleek design and the all-in-one approach is fantastic.  Our only complaint is the lack of USB ports.  With an iPhone, iPod, keyboard, mouse and and external hard drive for backup, you’re out of slots.  Using the USB hubs just doesn’t work so well and the external hard drive is constantly polled to see if it’s awake — a slight/minor annoyance.  Well worth the money we spent on the system.  The only problem so far were a failed hard drive (don’t know what happened there) and a problematic microphone port.
