Mac users

Just wondering how many users on this forum are Mac owners and what opinions they have on the Mac O/S. I have been a user for a year now and will never be going back to a windows based P.C. I have got to say I love my Mac!

Yes me too, bought a macbook pro for college and it is far far superior to windows os's very quick able to process very large files quickly the graphics are awesome. I Also run parallels as well so i can run windows xp for visual basic. I have a very highly specced windows pc but my mac keeps impressing me.

Looks cool as well.

I crossed over in early 2007 and as the salesman said at the time 'once you go Mac, you never go back' he was a tool but dead right.

ANY OS is better than Microcost - especially Vista!!!

If you like Macs you would have loved the Amiga OS which ran on the same CPU as a Mac. Microsoft deliberately killed it.

The Macbook Air with the solid state memory looks like it would last for a lot longer than the hard drive version, especially if you're hard on stuff!
