I got a mac about 1.5 years ago.  I like it, but it's lack of ability (blackbook $1499) amazes me.  I run photoshop on here and it acts like its having a heart attack
.  I could have bought a notebook for half the price that would run smoothly

True, but less likely than on Windows.  One of my friends (computer nerd) has had no anti-virus or anything on VISTA and has had no viruses, malware, or anything like that.  It is just how safe you are.  For me, I love Mac OSX.  I do not believe I will buy another windows based machine.

Mac > _________

But why do people get angry and say "people buy macs for the wrong reasons" blah blah blah.  If they have the money and they want a mac, why hate?  I had the money, I copped the new 27inch screen one and it's fiyah.

Na i have alot of reasons, recently i have been unlucky wit my pcs and i been gettin viruses. Dont get me wrong i kno my way around a computer its just these viruses, spyware, malware gets annoying. I kno a mac can still get viruses but it will be less common. I use itunes ALL the time and I have a iphone, and i just like the feel and the OS mac runs on. I am a student but the macbook pro aluminum and light up keyboard is attractive lol, call me stupid. I kno its like $200 more but money is not an issue.
