    Thinking about getting a mac
    I've been thinking about getting a mac for a long time now, I am a windows man by all reason and wont be making a full switch.

    However, i wanted to ask if there were any issues with the new imacs ? or anything i should be concerned about in general.

    Switch, and you'll never regret it. There is disadvantage of having Macs though, which is that you won't ever see the blue screen of death ever again, like you would on a Windows PC . Other than that, nothing to worry about switching. Practically all major apps are available for Mac and PC, everything just works, etc, etc. Just switch and you'll see.

    I see you're going with an iMac G5. Nice sexy option. There's like one person in southern Alaska whose new iMac G5's fan wouldn't turn off, but that's about the only problem I can think of. The new iMac has gotten stellar reviews from pretty much everybody, go with it.

    Oh, and good luck if you decide to switch!

    Thanks its not a switch, more of another computer, I have always been a fan of the mac, and i know quite abit about them (i work with them from time to time). At least more than the average pc user.

    Are the iMacs that much better than the eMacs, processor line aside?

    Having a Mac as another computer will result in a switch. I was a windows user too. All it took for me was about 7 minutes in a CompUSA trying them out

    Yeah, they are a LOT better. Better screen, better video card, better processor, practically the same price. I wouldn't even consider an eMac. Word is they're being phased out completely. Sure, it's a few hundred more for the iMac, but you get so much more!

    Oh, and good luck with your switch!

    It's all very loyal deciding to switch completely, but it's cutting your nose off to spite your face IMO. There are still special apps that some people have which are PC-only (my GBA flash writer and digiguide for a couple of random examples) and most of the games are on there too.

    Of course people can be happy just owning a Mac, but I see no point in trying to twist someone's arm into ditching their PC completely just out of principle.

    Agreed, if you need a pc for that special obscure app that noone has ported yet, what's the shame in keeping it? (locked in your basement I mean, obviously!)
