Bleh, who'd buy that garbage. It seems to be an OS geared towards hippies http://www.apple.com/switch/stories/hamiltonmorris.html
more than the general public. There is no advantage, in my mind of buying a mac over using Windows XP.
Let's look at the "reasons" to switch http://www.apple.com/switch/whyswitch
#10: It's Beautiful
Our designers and engineers agonize over every millimeter of every new Macintosh model, and every pixel of the user interface. The result: ergonomic products that are the toast of the design world. iMac. PowerBook. iPod. iBook. You can see obsession with design and detail wherever you look: the spring-loaded screws that secure the bottom plate of the new iMac, laser-etched text where others would put a sticker, the tough colorfast polycarbonate cases of the iMac and eMac, the anodized aluminum alloy enclosure of the Power Mac G5, the elegant optical mouse included with all desktop Macs, the instructions on the back of the door you open to add memory to an iBook or PowerBook. They’re objects that would be striking even if they weren’t computers. Tools that are, at every level, a pleasure to use.
We think you owe it to yourself to experience a Macintosh first-hand. Check out the high-performance PowerBook. The Power Mac G5, the world’s fastest personal computer. The oh-so-portable iBook. And the beautiful iMac. Come see one at an Apple Store or one of our resellers. You’ll find the Mac can answer most of your questions itself.
What kind of dumb reason is that? I don't know about Mac users, but I'M sure as hell not going to "switch" because something is "purty"
#8. Office is Office, and then some
The transition to a Mac is easy in part because you’ll continue using the same applications you already know. Microsoft Office v.X for Mac OS X gives you Word, PowerPoint and Excel, all with the same familiar features and shortcut commands. And thanks to exclusive features, the Mac versions improve on their Windows counterparts. Office documents are all fully compatible between Mac and Windows, so you can share everything from spreadsheets to presentations. Beyond Office, you’ll find you can run more than 10,000 applications designed specifically for Mac OS X. You can do anything you’d dream of doing on the Mac — from CAD to databases to finance.
OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG I'm going to switch because there is a PORT available of Windows software? Unlikely.
#7. It's "built" for the internet
When did you last configure a PC for the Internet? Take you long? It won’t on a Mac. Fact is, most of our customers are up-and-surfing within 15 minutes. And that includes people who never touched a computer before in their lives. What will your experience be like? You’ll find moving your favorites, email contacts and email messages to the Mac mere child’s play. And wait till you try the software. Safari and Mail offer features not found on any platform, features that make browsing and email on a Mac an absolute joy. Feel like chatting? Mac OS X’s built-in iChat AV works seamlessly with AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Furthermore, AIM, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger all have Mac versions. In fact, you’ll find tons of Internet tool options. That includes QuickTime. When it comes to world-class streaming video, no product offers a better digital media experience than QuickTime 6. Of course on a Mac, it’s just as easy to stream video, chat, read email and surf wirelessly. That’s because every Mac is ready for WiFi (802.11) — we call it AirPort — right out of the box.
Can anyone tell me how Mac "built" a computer for the internet?
Continued so messages don't get too long.
