    Thanks Lisa! Man, I think I'm getting seasick with all my leaning one way and then the other!

    Michelle MacPhearson recently switched from PC to Mac too. I'm not sure if she has any blog posts or reviews up on the switchover but you might do a search to see.

    Thanks Lynn, I will check it out! Not the comment I was hoping for from you however, since I know you just bought a new HP. Care to comment on your choice?

    Oh - I have all kinds of PC's in the house. I have 6 in my office right now including 2 desktops (both Dell), 2 laptops (one Dell and one HP) and 2 minis (one Acer and one HP). Well 7 if you include my mobile device which also has Windows and 3G access.

    I think Macs are great for all the reasons stated - they run well, aren't susceptible to the usual viruses, etc. - but the primary reason to buy a Mac is for video & image editing capabilities. If you do any heavy video/photo editing work, Mac is definitely the way to go.

    I don't, and so I'm not that interested in making the switch and learning a new system. But I do have my eye on getting a Macbook Pro sometime in the future. Just for fun.

    Thanks Lynn. I hope to do more video in the future so that is definitely one of my reasons for thinking of change. I wonder what Zack thinks since you said he did some work on Macs and is a designer. I know there are quite a few designers who like Macs for the same reasons you stated.

    I do amateur web video stuff, which works fine on XP (not so great on Vista). My son is not a designer, but a coder (programmer). So he works mostly in text based applications or with databases. Both of us do very little with graphics or video outside of the basic stuff that a PC can easily handle.

    I voted PC, because that's what I have.

    However, my recent post Mac vs PC: Which is Better? offers my further thoughts on this.

    Thanks Traci. I loved the article.

    Everyone says the cost is the big difference, but I went online and looked at a good PC and then started customizing it so it equaled what the Mac has stock and it cost almost the same as the Mac, about $200 less. When you're talking that kind of money, $200 is nothing.

    It's true what they say... Once you go Mac you never go back

    I bought a Macbook Pro a year ago when the new model came out. It's absolutely light as a feather so it's great for travel and it's really thin.

    It was a hefty investment compared to my PC's but it's been well worth every penny for me. I was bringing my PC into the computer doc every other month even though it had great anti virus software and it was only two years old.

    I still use my PC desktop for Lynn's webinars and some occasional work, but I spend 90% of my time on my Macbook Pro.

    I was surprised at how easy it was to make the transition.

    Thanks Scott! I have four crashes in three years on my PC. My kids, who have Macs, have had none in the same time frame!
