Mac vs. PC

Mac: Hi I'm a Mac
PC: And I'm a PC
Mac: Emily has been thinking about me a lot lately. Her laptop is approaching 3 years old and is starting to have a couple of issues
PC: I've been a great friend though!
Mac: So now she's been thinking about maybe going with me, a Mac, for her next laptop
PC: I keep telling her she's crazy. Think about all the things she'd have to relearn....how to work with documents, a whole new interface....its just totally not worth the hassle
Mac: But I keep reminding her that she has never met anyone that is a huge PC advocate
PC: Lots of people are perfectly content with me
Mac: Well, my users are typically fanatics about me, going on and on about how great I am. And I've got lots of cool applications for the stuff that she uses her home computer for now...photo editing, web publishing, music writing...
PC: But the relearning! You can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you?
Mac: So why don't all you readers out there give your opinion? Maybe its worth relearning a few tricks for something that she'll be a fanatic for eventually...
PC: Or maybe she should stick to what she knows and is perfectly fine with. Anyone have a word of advice?

Go with the Mac. I was on the fence, like you, and last year Derek just went for it and got me that Mac. Now I don't think I could ever go back! It really didn't take long to learn the new Mac ways. Go for it!

OMG, you have to get a MAC! I absolutely love mine. I have had it for three years and I have converted my mom, husband, sister and best friends to the MAC. I highly suggest the One to One training they offer, you can go and get personal help on learning all the things the MAC can do. Have a great Christmas

Go Mac...go Mac... go, go go Mac!

(You'll have to imagine me busting a circa 1990 move to that.)

If you are in Advertising Design, graphic Design, or some field in production MAC. If not PC!

This is hilarious!!! I actually had this exact same conversation with myself today!!! I'm not getting a new computer, but I was flirting with the idea during my lunch break and started looking stuff up. Oh that's hilarious.

We have an iMac, and I love it. I am not great with computers and never had any One on One training (I wish I knew were to get some of that, though!!), but we really love it. It is easy, and they have great features. iPhoto is my favorite and my best!
