Yes there are. I saw them yesterday, but I forgot where I was. You can try to google it.

I wish that I switched, but I started as a mac guy and had to be converted to a windows person to work. I love going home to my mac though. Sweet, sweet mac.

Welcome to brighter side of the world! I was in the same boat as you. I only used PC because after Amiga it was all I knew. I got a Mac jusdt after OSX came out and still love using them. I now have a Powermac G5 dual 2.5 machine and an iBook G4 1.33. They are great machines. I still build PC computers, I make more money then I ever could selling sad to say. I would love to do both someday if I ever could.
