02-01-2004, 11:05 PM #1Rugby10GuestPlease Help...MUST GID RID OF PC...
Disclaimer: I'm in the military, therfore I've used nothing but Micro$oft and Unix.
My girlfriend has been touting the power of Apple for a while now, as she uses them with her architecture firm. I'm so sick of windows that I'm ready to try anything. The problem is no one, including my girlfriend(non-tech), has been able to elaborate on the differeces between PC's and Mac notebooks. I've tried to look for the info myself, but I can't distinguish between a powerbook and ibook, G4 vs. G3, or emac and OS X??? Hell, I can't find anything that is useful. What I'm looking for is a primer of some sort, an indoctrination, if you will, to the world of Apple.
Please help... must get rid of PC...

http://www.apple.com/switch/ check that out
The G3 and G4 are just names for the processors like pentium 3 and pentium 4
OS X is the Operating system like Windows 98, 2000, XP etc.
Powerbook used to be the more powerful laptop since the iBook had the g3 and powerbook was G4 but now its mainly a difference in appearence and sizesDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System
