well, what more can i say. ive changed over to a imac, why you ask. reasons below
basicaly, this computer simply works, it does all the normal functions that the microsoft system does, but quicker. there is no waiting 5 mins or so for it to start up, turn it on, and wait a few seconds, and bingo, it's working.
screen quality is briliant. and to top it all off, this thing simply works.
anyone else out there changed from pc to mac? im impressed, very very impressed.

+1 good option.
I switched from PC to mac about 7-8 months ago, never looked back.
Loving every second of it.
No matter what your circumstances, no matter who you are - everyone deserves second chances
Been using a Mac for about 6 years. Awesome machines and don't have to worry about pesky stuff such as spyware, malware and anti-virus crap!
yes but what about programs? my g/f has one and im still iffy on them as i cant find many games for the mac, i also do a lot of photo editing and cant seem to find alot of those programs around. but for just playing around on the net they seem real good...
As far as games go, you can put Windows on a Mac via Boot Camp and your Windows games will run on it under Windows, just the same as any PC. In regards to photo editing, there's Photoshop which is regarded as the industry standard in regards to image editing, and that runs on both Mac and Windows. Costs a bomb though.
Been using macs for over 10 years now as im in the Printing industry. One you go Mac you never go back lol. Whats spyware again... lol
Ive got my Mac at home setup for Duel boot though bootcamp, im running windows 7 as well as Snow leopard. Win/Win
My brother has both systems running and is now a fan of the mac just for it's boot time - seconds. Microsoft fail with boot time. A freind does medical graphics posters and has been using macs all along.
Main issue with macs is simply the cost - way too much for what they do for the average family.

Linux all the way. I've got an ibook, a windows pc, and a dual boot linux (ubuntu)/windows 7 pc (i've also got a netbook running ubuntu netbook remix). The ibook is expensive for what you get, and its still a very basic computer. Windows boot/shutdown times are ridiculous, and as much as 7 is light years ahead of XP it still feels restrictive to use.
To get linux to work 100% you do need some basic-intermediate computer knowledge but there are also guides on how to do most things on the internet. I fail to see why you would want to pay for an OS these days when linux is up to par with the others (MAC and linux are both based off the same fundamentals anyway, so they have a similar feel). It even comes with a 'software centre' app so you can easily find and download any software you need.
Back on topic, i do use a mac, i am also a computer technician, personally i prefer to use my macbook air. Have been using macs for about 3 years now. How can i go wrong... a unix based OS that still runs all my favourite programs, and the quality of the unibody design with a backlit keyboard mmmmm.

HEARRRY, HEV YU HEARD OF REKALL?
I have just bought an mac I have never used one before and I'm not really a computer person, it is so easy to use and so quick. Plus I love the 27inch screen. It was expensive but for what I can see and I've only had it for 2 days I think it's going to be worth it. The facial recognition software for the iPhoto software is awesome.
I work with mac's all day
Fact-imac's use intel stuff, western digital harddrives, and a few other peace's and they start from 2200.
Fact-same computer from acer or hp -1400 ish - do the math
people who use bootcamp on a mac pay an xtra 1000 just todo the same thing -fail
Mac's are good for privet use only
The catholic education office (my employer) Decided for the government laptop grant they would buy 30,000 macbooks
have you every tried to bound macbooks to a ad server it's useless due to the bugs in macbooks and apple refuse to listen So you will buy a apple server
Microsoft on the other hand window's 7 is a very stable operating system 5/7 of the worlds best hackers say mac osx is more vulnerable to virus's and security threats then window's 7 now!
and the whole reason i'm bitching there is none 15 mins till i get to go home and Can't wait slowest day of my life.
Wtb better p plate laws
Mac's are good for people that only want it for simple functions like music (awesome recording quality) and art\movies (same quality as any normal pc)
But as for "boot time" you will get the same thing if you fork out the same cash for any pc with a microsoft os..
Personally i prefer to stay far away from outlets when handing over cash for things like this, you can build a computer twice as good and for half the price when you know what you are doing.
Apple always make a big deal of things that they bring out, like when the iphone first come out "it can surf the net blah blah blah download music, watch vids on youtube".... That shit was old technology, i was doing that with my 7250i nokia back in 2003
i'm not tailgating, i'm keeping up with the pace car
Im a insane Mac User, MacPro, Mac Mini, 3 MacBooks, iMac G5, & a Old classic that still works and still faster then windows at starting lol.
Also been a qualified tech for 5 years now, They are simple to use, but still get the morons that still cant figure them out. \
Funny when we people make the move to mac, when they bring in there dell or what ever for us to migrate there data, its just a laugh, all the pop ups and shit that starts up cause they have had no clue lol.
MacPro is the only machine iv bought, Love the 8 x 2.8GHz, 10GB RAM, 8800GT, 4TB HEHEHE
I Just build the rest out of liquid spilt machines lol
