They both have their strengths. We have windows laptop and got an iMac to do movies, photos, music, etc. We had an old windows box that just couldn't do the multimedia stuff we wanted to do. Since we wanted it for those reasons, moving to the mac was an easy choice.
My wife just started a new job. Lo and behold they are completely mac based, which never seemed to come up in the very complete interview process. Anyone have any good ideas for getting up to speed on the nuances of the mac compared to windows?
If you are wanting a computer that will last forever I would go with a mac...I have had an Ibook G4 for almost 3 years now and it still runs like it did when I got it.
I can beat that...we've got an NT 4.0 server at work that has been running 24/7 (except for maintenance) since the fall of 1995. The only thing that's ever been done to it is replacing SCSI drives, and updating the SCSI controller and network card. Made by DEC. They knew how to build good stuff...
"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
I'd like to go to Mac, but as far as I know, Mac can't play FS9 (Flight Simulator 2004) (Our museum has a simluation that ONLY uses FS9.) and the VOIP suite I want to use when I start telecommuting doesn't work with Mac. Both of those features are "drop dead" items, so I'm still PCing into the indefinite future.
