Just have a chat with a Mac representative. Wah…he was so defensive. Me & a friend, previously a hardcore Mac user, were challenging him with questions about ‘why Mac’? He admitted that Mac is expensive but he believe that anyone should buy Mac because it is good. Better than PC. Even students should buy Mac….and students should not buy expensive toy or phones. We were merely suggesting that Mac to produce cheaper version of machines for students or home users.
As usual, the main reason for one to switch to a Mac is because PC crashes a lot. I would say, any machine crash. But poor hardware-kernel-OS integration is the culprit. I love IBM Thinkpad, because it rarely crash & the Thinkvantage technology to update necessary drivers when OS upgraded.
With Thinkpad, I rarely need to reformat my PC & it seldom crash.
As for the virus problem, Mac is indeed protected (for the time being). Once it is popular, no worry Mac, there will be people who will develop those worms or virus or trojan for you.
The ease of use? Out of the box, to use Mac you better configure those mouse or trackpad. Because they are sluggish. The file & folder management also different. So those who are switching to Mac, start learning the different layout.
Again & again I would say, let people buy anything that they find useful & worth their hard-earned money. Both Mac or PC are just tools. Choose the right tool for your work. For the time being I choose PC.
