For a while now (actually since shortly after I got Gertie), I've been contemplating buying a Mac. Our compy is decrepit. It ventures out onto the internet highway like a Grandma in an old Crown Vic, forgetting to signal, going well below the speed limit.

So, after I sat in amazement at the simplicity and sleekness of iTunes and Gertie, I started to wonder what would life be like on the other side. The dark side. Do they have cookies, I wondered.

Curt's not going to be an easy sell. I know this because one night we were curled up on the couch and the commercial for the new MacBook Air came one and I brought it up.

"Those look really cool."

"No they don't. Apples suck."

"How would you know? Have you ever used one?"

Defensively, "Yeah."

"When, in elementary school? Where you playing Oregon Trail on it?", I tease.

Sheepishly, "Yeah."

And so, I tabled the discussion. But recently I've started really looking at them and I'm liking what I'm seeing. A lot.

I think it might be time for the fat kid on the moon bounce to bust out some new moves.

Well, I already gave my opinion once, but I'll be happy to do it again! :) MACS ROCK!!!!!!! I love my Mac and will NEVER go back. Oh, and I have that t-shirt. I'm wearing it now.

LOVE my MACs. Have been MAc for about 15 years and have always worked on PCs when I've been in the workforce. Macs win hands down.

More games and programs avail for PC, better audio visual stuff on Mac. If neither one of those is an issue then it comes down to useability, viruses, and breakdowns. Mac wins hands down. No contest. They are very intuitive are not affected by most viruses and have far fewer hardware based problems that require repair.
