Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Would You Consider Switching to Apple?:


I still miss my old Mac (but not the little bomb or the "sad Mac" face). When I left the fun life of advertising and public relations to become a tech mercenary, I won a PC in a sales contest. I haven't owned a Mac since. Old-timers will remember the articles in Macworld about how Bill Gates wanted to license and sell the Mac OS. There might never have been a Win95, 98, SE, and (argh) Vista.

I would get a Mac for a pet. Does that count?


I was an early user of Macs, back in the mid- '80s. I can't remember when I switched to PCs but I suspect it was for price and because at the time communicating between Macs and PCs was a problem for marketers, and most of my clients were PC-based. Here's the point:

In my firm we use both PCs and Macs. Whenever I have to get into a designer's Mac to retrieve something, it takes me many times longer that if I were using a PC. Macs may have more functionality but PCs are easier and faster in my experience. Now if I could just keep my system from crashing once a day, I could argue that everyone should use a PC.

Thank you for your kind offer, Trisha. I will share my list of things to consider with you offline. What I meant was that I will take out the files I will no longer need as the Apple folks provide a free switch over to new customers.
