    Angry IMAC?? Or Not??
    I have a pc. (sorry,sorry!). I spend more time working on it than getting anything done! I got a virus that wiped it out a few days ago, running Norton Antivirus 2010, fully updated!). I have spent some time reading about the imac. It all sounds very good to me. I have some dollars coming, and think I am going to get the 21 inch imac. Just curious about how many reasons you can come up with for me to buy the imac. I want to do some selling online, a new home based business I am starting. And I love to work with pictures, just family stuff . I am fed up to HERE with windows! Will I like the mac better???

    Have you used or tried a Mac to me everything is much easier to accomplish and have
    had very few issues over the years most involved third party. The Mac seems to run
    faster than Windows based machines and the aesthetics ain't bad either.

    Thanks, I have never even seen a mac. I don't know anything about them, other than all the good things I have read about them. Are they hard to learn how to use?

    Is there an Apple store near your home or a Best Buy? If there is, go on in and play with the various Mac machines they have on display. An Apple store is the best place to go since all the sales reps who work there are generally very knowledgeable and willing to help.

    Regards.

    You will be surprised how fast you will pick up on it.

    That's the problem. I live in the country, no Apple Stores near here. I can't make a trip to the nearest big city just to see a mac. I will order online if (when) I decide for sure to get one. Everyone here has pc's. I need to go now, duty calls, will check back later to read all the pro's about a mac, and some info on the operating system. I seriously need a new computer, and just can't see getting another pc.

    I bought a brand new 27" iMac a few months ago to replace my T43p Thinkpad running Vista and I will NEVER go back to a Windows PC. Everything is so much easier on a Mac. After you switch you may find some things hard to figure out, because its TOO simple to use and wrap your mind around. After a week or so you'll be a pro. Mac = Win. IMO

    You don't have to go to an apple store, lots of places sell them. For example I bought mine from future shop, they had them on display there, and you could play with them.

    You make it sound like a mac is very user friendly. I think an imac, the 21 inch, is what I will get. Thanks everyone! The nearest place that might have a mac is Radio Shack, about twenty miles from here. I will have to go and see one! I can't wait to get one, I am so tired of my computer crashing all the time. Do you really not need a virus program with the mac?

    Not one virus software is needed, as a PC user, you may find this hard to believe, but there are NO viruses for Mac.
