Used to be a Mac snob, was art director at an agency with about ten
people under me, all using Macs. Half the time all I did was fix
screwed up Macs.
PCs have their problems too, dont get me wrong. I HATE all the
anti-virus crap I have to deal with.
But I'm happier with clone home-made hi-powered PCs than I ever was
with any Mac.
Yeah they used to be crap but things have changed dramatically these days.
Ive just ordered my next one too:
17" Macbook Pro
i7 Quad Core 2.3GHz
Im going to put in a SSD hybrid but I ordered it with 750GB drive.
Apple always undercuts on the drive specs.
At this stage Im not paying $1200 for a SSD
So what's changed with Macs that makes you say that? 2 jobs ago (up
until 2003), while I was with a large company (10,000+), we used Macs
exclusively. Because I needed to jump platforms for my DNA analysis
work at the time, I had both a Mac& a PC. The Macs *always* had
issues with them. The PC's were far from perfect, but other than the
occasional locking up when running too many things at once, they were
pretty reliable in comparison. I know our IT guys HATED the
Macs...which was weird considering we were a Mac company.
Mac's are PC's now. intel chipset. There is no difference. I find that
most machines are reliable as the knowledge of the user. When my PC's,
Atari's, Apples or Amiga's lock up, I know why in 99.9% of cases.
A computer is a computer.
Hmm...maybe I should take out my old Atari 800 ;-)
With the bitchin' tape drive.
They're bringing the Commodore 64 back -
