Mac (but my business requires that I run Windows on Parallels).
I have an original Bondi Blue iMac in the garage that will soon be used to run photo slideshows, not in the garage.
Also iPhone.

Is this the result of a new crop of members who lean toward MAC, or have members who were former PCs gone over to MAC?
Either that or those using PCs are embarassed to say so...

Mac,

A friend (and Mac fanatic) finally wore me down about 6 years ago and convinced me to try one after many years of PC use.

I don't get fanatical about these things but I am very happy with my Macs!

I used Mac at school before retirement--loved it. At home, we have an OLD Dell, very usable, but I miss my Macs. When I rebuy, maybe I'll move to a Mac lap top...silver, of course. ~G

Funny - after seeing Shari's pic and reading the thread on a beautifully polished canoe.

I'm thinking about how cool a polished mac would be. Hmmmmm...

UGH!!! I HATE 2 SYSTEMS - which is what we have right now. We started with Mac in the 80s, but then Sandy's work migrated to PC, as did my work from mainframes to PC. Right now, Sandy has a very nice Macbook and I'm running an old SLOW sony laptop. Next year, its a new MacAir - its aluminum, its a Mac, and its Air as in Stream.

Always have had Mac's (got the first Apple at a yard sale before there was a Mac). Now we have a laptop and my wife has an eMac. My first Powerbook was still going strong after 6+ years when I got the 17" version (silver case before I ever thought of an Airstream) which allows me to have numerous windows open simultaneously and actually see them.

These machines run flawlessly for years and years for us. You can buy rebuilt ones directly from Apple on their website for about 20% off.

I think the iPhone has become the handheld computer of choice for those wanting a really small Apple computer.

I had some limited exposure to MAC several ago and liked the system. The deal breaker was that it would not interface with my Dell Axim pocket PC which runs on Pocket Windows 2003. I am dependent on the Axim, and had to abandon my MAC pursuits.

I have a question for the MACs out there. Are there any new mini MACs available similar in size to the new Dell Mini 10 inch? I have have found this great for the Airstream with a 10" by 7" footprint. This has become my new full time notebook. It allows me to both use the computer and eat at the dinette table.

Brian
We have an 11" MacBook Pro, purchased this summer because prices had dropped several hundred dollars, our PowerBook G4 we'd had for 7 years was rather slow and going to inevitably have serious problems AND the new one has Skype for long distance visits with grandbabies.

#1 computer-genius son told us in 2002 to get a Mac and only a Mac, we have been completely happy with them and wouldn't travel without it.
