We have snow leopard and like it just fine. We didn't see that lion added all that much...

I really like the Lion on my Macbook Pro but I got mine after Lion was out of the cage so I know little about the rest of the Cat family.

I've been using Parllels. It lets me have both operating systems up and running at the same time.

Do you find that parallel decrease the resource of your Mac? I have to reformat my drive and remove parallel for that reason.We are using QuickBook for our accounting program the QB is seeing the data folder as a network drive and it takes forever to read and load the data basically it become unusable. Problem goes away when we remove parallel.

Good Morning...I posted somewhere on this thread that we were PC family.

Must update...both wife and I now have MacBook Pros. Made the switch about 1 1/2 years ago and all is well.

Primary reason for the switch was PC virus issues. After many years w/o the last couple of years on the PC I was dealing with virus issues about every other month. Often took a couple of long days on the phone seeking help to finally get rid of the virus. Also, tried multiple suggested software to prevent and nothing seemed to work anymore.

Since on Mac have had no virus issues...hope this lasts.

Other than virus issues I was pretty comfortables with PC "management" and probably would not have changed. While I like the Mac just fine...I am not overwhelmed by the difference from PC. I do appreciate Applecare but my Dell support service was also quite good.

All in all...life is better and I have not had any major issues for nearly two years...TomR

I've not encountered that problem. However, the only software that I need Windows for is Autocad. Perhaps I don't use it enough to notice the difference. All of my other software needs are available for Mac, so I guess I've been lucky in that regard.

I read a business blog recently that discussed marketing techniques and corporate images.

The upshot of the article was that there is a major difference between Apple and the Microsoft based PC's. Because of the high quality, ease of use, style and reliability, Apple has created a cult. The followers have determined that anything Apple makes will be the best and it's worth paying a premium for their products.

On the other hand, most of the PC makers want to be "just good enough". There's not really much to separate any of them in terms of quality, service or image. These manufacturers just know that they will continue to get market share.

Now think about Airstream and all the SOB's (Square Old Box or Some Other Brand). It looks to me like Apple and Airstream have a lot in common.

By the way, we started the conversion to Apple about two years ago when my wife replaced her PC with a MacBook Pro. Last year we added a Mac Mini to our home entertainment system. When my Dell PC croaks, I will go with the MacBook Pro as well.

I had an issue with Parallels crashing my MBP. I switched (back) to VM Fusion and it's been working great. They just released version 4 which is supposed to be optimized for Lion. I think that you can still get it for $50 as an introductory price.

My thoughts exactly. However, as someone who (in a past life) had to support a mixed Mac and PC community I'm now completely against all things Apple because their products proved to be very much form over function. Our smaller Mac group cost about three times as much to support than the larger PC group and in terms of business effort they were no better than PCs. The organisation eventually ditched the Macs and saved themselves a fortune.

However, I do recognise that as individuals, many people like the form over function thing and wouldn't part with their Apple products.

Interestingly, since switching to a mac after nearly 20 years of using PC's, I've been able to work without technical problems. No crashing, no viruses, software and hardware works without issue. The mac just works. Something that I couldn't honestly say about my PC's.
