Outsource tech support to Dilbert's Elbonia and manufacturing to Papua
New Guinea. Macs are starting to look better all the time
Old news but if you believe a MAC is better don't tell us till after
you bought it; then you can speak from experience instead of theory.
For others still interested in Dells, I just got this email that Dell
is having a 4 Day Sale. Go to their web site for details.
I haven't bought one as yet, am waiting to see what comes out of the
WWDC starting 11 Jun and will go from there.
Thanks and keep us posted. I don't think MACs are worst than Dell nor
do I think they're better but MAC people will fight to the death to
convince others so. Sometimes I think they're delusional but I won't
get into that. Whatever you decide, hope it works for you.
I like the form factor of the Mac Books, but when it first came out
there were a lot of complaints of problems caused by heat problems. A
salesperson at Comp USA who loves Macs admitted that some internal
component of his melted, and there are also reports of these problems
in user forums. It doesn't surprise me because when I had a Mac
laptop a few years ago (Power PC chip tho) it was unbearably hot. It
didn't take long for me to return it.
The bottom line for me is whether a computer runs the software I want
it to. The Mac doesn't run most of the programs that I find the
useful other than Office and Quicken.
I also happen to like Windows better than the Mac OS -- how the
interface can be customized in so many ways. About the only thing I
like better about the Mac OS is that I think it would be more stable
-- less instances of things like processes needing to be terminated,
freeze-ups, and things like that. Windows, from XP on though, for my
level of being able to fix things, does OK on that front. For users
who don't know how to diagnose and fix problems, a Mac with hardware
targeted towards for the Mac might be the most reliable solution.
