Some good words! Very True!I didn't read all the posts on this thread....but I have to tell you....I've used PC's for about 15 years of my life and this past year I did a lot of research on computers......and I finally got a MACBOOK!!!!!!!!! And PC does not compare to a Macbook in any way!!!!
*Mac battery life is amazing (I could go hours without having to plug it in)
*Its more energy efficient than any other laptop on the market! (trust me I researched this)
*Start up and shut down time is roughly 4 to 6 seconds. My brand new Dell Inspirion took literally 75 seconds to 2 minutes to start up.
*The software is much more intuitive, and FAR MORE responsive than any windows-based computer I've ever used!
*Mac's use up less space for the operating system, where as Windows takes up more space.
*You can run more applications on a Mac with less memory than you would on any Windows based product.
*Also, running several applications at once on a Mac is at lightening speed compared to Windows! I can download several sermons on audio within 5 seconds! (tell me what computer can do that?)
*Also, Mac's can run both operating systems side by side on the same machine. AND, Mac's actually run Windows better than most Window's based products! (seriously!)
*No Virus Protection necessary. (yes because we live in a windows-based world, and there are few viruses created for Macs, but also because of the complexity of the OS itself. The way it is designed makes it more difficult to create viruses. With Windows that is not the case.)
*No problems using Facebook (seriously when I'm on someone else's computer...I always have issues chatting over Facebook, not the case with Mac!)
*iphoto, idvd, imovie...are all amazing to use! I've never had similar experiences with any windows software!
*Quality of the laptop is superior! Not only is it asthetically pleasing, but built to be durable as well.
*Mac's come with a magnetic power cord, to prevent tripping over your cord or having your laptop fly across the room!
Honestly, once you've experienced a Mac...you would understand what all the rave is about! Its a far superior product In my humble opinion!!!!
