OK, so, I have a few of those questions in my mind that are just... curiosity. PC and MAC. Why do MAC users refer to "other computers" as PCs? Or PeeCees? PC Stands for Personal Computer, so aren't MACs considered personal computers? If not, why not? They are computers, and ... if you own one, isn't it your personal computer?
Working in the computer industry, I know that people either love or hate MACs. I have never experienced a MAC, so I cannot voice an opinion on their operation.
We (the company I work for) are an Authorized Service Provider for Apple, so our techs do work on them, but not a huge amount, so I have seen the "service" side of Apple. And... in my opinion, they are not the most cooperating of companies, but.. they are far from the worst. Their parts (if your unit was to have problems outside of the warranty period) are quite pricey. More than double what it would cost to repair a "PC" - so what is the lure? (I fully expect a comment from Matt or Deb on this one since they are both MAC users!) I just honestly would like to know.
Since Jeff is entering a technology field with his college degree he is working toward, he mentioned that he would like to get a MAC to see what the difference is, and so that he can get some experience on them. But I am not so quick to want to run out and buy one. The draw backs, for me, are:
These are programs I use all the time. At work and at home. I doubt (since I do not know for sure I say doubt) that Microsoft software is usable on a MAC. And don't the majority of people/companies use Microsoft Office products? Is there something available on MACs that would allow you to convert the file into something viewable? And how do MAC users send files to people who do not have MACs?
