Mac VS. PC

Before Christmas, I am generally asked one question: "Which should I buy, a Mac or a PC?"

Now in the old days, prior to 2000, I would have easily said a PC. Windows wasn't the greatest, but Apple didn't have their act together enough to warrant a purchase. I occasionally used a Mac and loved it, but finding ample support for them was like finding a needle in a haystack. But that was before 2000.

Then came Mac OS X in 2001 and everything changed. The computer world seemed a little brighter. I admit that I didn't jump on the bandwagon right away. I was still content with my blue screens of death and enjoyed the memory hiccups every time I opened an application. However, the more I experienced the new Mac OS, the more I loved it.

Then the inevitable happened - I switched my allegiance. I considered the arguments and for the past six years have recommended purchasing a Mac. Why? Performance. The Mac outperforms the PC. Plus, support time for the PC is far greater than the Mac. The cute Apple commercials don't lie.

Those who took my advice have been pleasantly surprised. Sure, there's a little learning curve, but it's pretty much smooth sailing afterward.

Is a Mac right for every one? No, it is not. But I would rather take my chances on a Mac anyday compared to a PC.

Okay, okay...I can't argue there. At least it doesn't crash like a PC.
