Well it’s been just over 60 days since I bought the apple. I can say that the experience has been a good one. So is the Apple better than the Windows machine? Fact is that I still have the Dell M90 sitting here and have used it as well as the Apple. Each has a place. Like comparing your table saw and your miter saw. Each has features that may be useful at one time or another.

The Apple software is mostly compatible with the Windows software. Only problem I found is that Power Point and Key note are not compatible. Other Office programs for the most part like their Apple equivalent. I did have to add “Flip4Mac” to be able to view windows generated videos.

Support at the Apple Store is fantastic. I have been stumped with making some applications meet my need and got great help. Problems were semantic and a lake of understanding of apples digital structure. My 14 year old grand son is also available!!!!

I am satisfied with my purchase. I still use windows and have a desktop in the shop that is partitioned for both Windows and Unix.

Just thought I’d update Y’all!

I recently bought a Ford van and it is a really nice vehicle but it is different from my Toyota SUV.

I have the MacBook Pro and have not used my Windows desktop in 2 years. It’s extremely fast, reliable, and does everything a window’s based PC can do, only without the weekly crashes.
Fancy movie making is the real test, with transitions and special effects. Try these programs on a windows computer and they crash almost every time. IMovie waltzes through without a hitch.
Support for windows vs Apple is not even a contest.
Oh and I don’t need any type of third party security software to muck up the system and hit me with charges and constant updating.
No contest. It’s a Festool against a Black & Decker.
