We might go with AppleTV and dump dishnetwork, probably will anyway
Would rather go without a computer if it wasn't for Mac
Or we could just use our iPhones

a-tv is NOT a replacement for cable, satellite, dish, or ANY other television services...

it really should be called apple-entertainment downloader...

because in the CURRENT form it's a a simple/easy way to download music, rented video and some tele episodes...

that are PURCHASED online and al a cart FROM THE APPLE/itune stores....

IF you wanna watch tele on yer apple, ya need a tv tuner plugged into it...

like EYEtv (notice the EYE part is not an i...) Elgato EyeTV USA

this is a pretty slick gadget and works great on the macs...

there are other tuners but they still rely on the software from elgato, only they use older versions of the software,

while elgato keeps the new stuff JUST for their own tuner packages...


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

No switcher here: always been a Mac user. Used an Apple ][ as my first computer. After many years, I'm up to Mac #5. My current MacBook Pro is the best computer I've ever used.

I'm forced to use a PC at work and man does Microsoft drive me nuts!

Have to use PC for work. Relatively new to Mac- but absolutely love it! I have been working with our Macbook for about 1 year and am slowly switching over the household. Getting I-phones as soon as our Verizon contract is up- or they start offering the I-phone. The Mac allowed me to make our webpage- Classic Aluminum Trailers Also- I love the print products offered right through I-photo are awesome- calendars, books, ect..

One of the main apps I use at work doesn't play in OS X, but that may change with VMware Fusion, fingers crossed.
Any other 3DSMax (and or AutoCAD users) have to unwillingly dual boot their MacPros?

As for in the Airstream, the MacMini and MacBookPro are a perfect match. Ever seen a Dell wearing aluminum?

We have always been Mac people. My wife and I each have a nice, silver, MacBook Pro. Actually our friends seem to agree with our choice, and we have had 4 of these going in the Airstream all at one time.

We did manage to kill one while traveling this summer, it seems that Mac's don't share our love of drinking red wine.

We have two laptops that we travel with. We have an ACER with 17" monitor and a DELL with a 15" monitor. Both work o.k. as long as we can get WIFI. If not we watch movies on the flatscreen tv.

As a follow up to my earlier post, the only thing I do keep one of my old windows laptops (Dell 8100 Inspiron) around for is to run Quicken. That is because

1. Although I have not tried it, Quicken for Mac is supposed to stink, at least if you are used to using Quicken for Windows. Plus I have read nightmares about trying to import Quicken Data.

2. I really, really don't want to run Parallels, VMware or Bootcamp (programs that allow you to install windows on a mac) on my mac. I'd be back to running antivirus ware again etc. Hence the separate computer. It gets fired up about twice a month to pay bills.

3. Yes there are Mac friendly alternatives to Quickent (ibank, Moneydance) but from what I have read they all have their shortcomings compared to Quicken. If they didn't, I would jump off of the intuit/quicken ship so fast it would make your head spin.

There is some hope coming in a new program to be released as a beta soon by Quicken called Quicken Financial Life for Mac. It is supposed to be a more apple like user interface albeit with some features stripped out that power users might miss. Hopefully it will work well for us "normal" bill paying, investment monitoring users. We'll see if it will import our exisiting data, some rumors think that it won't.

Sorry, didn't mean to get too far off topic.

Yup, did the same thing, after recovering and going back to Best Buy, got the
HD version of the MacBook; well worth it. We try to keep our glass away now.
