You'll have your answer quickly.
my daughter I have to use a Mac and I don't notice anything different
between them. I know Mac users say the Mac is superior but I don't
know why. If they both do the same thing why not buy the cheaper
had a lot of them because I had a PC that wasn't very reliable so I bought a
second one and had them networked so I couldn't lose anything. I kept
telling my nephew who is in the business that I wanted a wireless system. He
recommended the iMac as having very few wires and cables. He is not a fan
of the PC systems that use wireless routers because they are not secure
He also likes Apple products because they are more stable and less appealing
to hackers. With my PCs I had a couple of viruses and, because I do a lot
of surfing, I was getting around 50 spams a day. I don't know how it's done
but I am not getting any spam so far and I have had the iMac for 3 months.
Also my brother-in-law built a shelf under my computer table and moved the
few wires I can't do without to it so now I can't see them.
When you consider that the tower, monitor, speakers, microphone, and web cam
are all built into one unit and the only extra you have to buy is the
printer, the apple is really not very much more expensive than a PC.
I have a PC but Apple now has a PC version of its Safari browser.
I like it and would use it if I could get the same free add-ons
that Firefox offers. I hate seeing ads on web pages and Firefox
has an add-on that kills all ads. It has another that allow you
to look at Flash content or not as you please.
Firefox is open source and many people design add-ons for it and
offer them free. Another good one is Tiny Url. If you right
click the tiny url option is displayed and you can just click
it and it will create a tiny url from the one you want to
shorten and copy it to your clipboard ready to paste.
I found one can get an add-on for Safari that will kill ads, but
it is not free -- something like $10 to download.
Thus so far Firefox is the browser that outdoes all others in my
view and I have tried them all. I don't use Microsoft programs
if I can avoid it.
For a news reader I have used Agent for years -- there is a
purchase price but it is far the most flexible and configurable
news reader around.
Been using the Mozilla Thunderbird program for regular e mails
and newsgroups. No problems of any kind so far.
I have Netscape Communicator on this machine to use for some
mailing, but really dislike Outlook and Outlook Express. They were
all we used at work and it was a relief, on retirement, to never have
to look at them again.
