That could be right Joe and If MAC would just make all the software I need for work, I would join you all with a MAC. Most people would use MACs then. PC's and MAC's both have strong and weak points. By the way IE 8 is a big problem now go figure. Anyway we are getting some great chat here.

My last computer was a PC and other than old age problems I really did not have any issues. The computer worked great actually and I got 7 (I think) years out of it. Not bad for a computer.

Since I have switched to Mac I have spent a lot of time on various Mac forums. Let me assure you that PC's are not the only computers to have problems. Mac certainly has their share. So far I have not experienced any, but there are plenty of people out that that have.

Do not forget that you can now run windows on Mac's so if there is a program that you need that does not have a comparable Mac version (which is quite rare now, but I know there are some that you would need James that Mac could not help with) then you can just load windows on your Mac and run that program. Of course the Mac will cost much more than a PC of similar specs so that will keep a lot of people from switching too.

I run virtual windows on my Mac and run my AutoCAD program with no problems. One machine, two platforms. I just NEVER open a browser when in the Windows environment. Way too many bad memories come back... I guess I was one of those unfortunate people who would do a Windows upgrade or patch, then kick myself in the pants for all the problems it brought on. Six years on a G5 and MacBook without a hiccup. Lucky me

I do like MAC's I will admit and I do like to drop and drag. Maybe my next Laptop will be a MAC.
I am kicking the tires on Solidworks and MasterCam to get certified in them too.
