Has anyone got a Mac?

I'm toying with the idea, not a laptop but an i Mac.

I have an iphone and a pad and it seems to make sense but i am really not sure as i have only ever had windows (Dell) PC's. My current Dell is limping on at the moment - Windows XP PRO 3, IntelPentium4 with HT so its getting on.

Views please, models, what i should avoid etc. all appreciated

I use a laptop Mac book pro, we also have an I pad each, and I phones , I have only used I macs at work , this was offshore, I only used them for e mails, job reports etc, but after using one, I would never go back to a Microsoft based computer, I personally think they are the best products on the market., and obviously you must be thinking the same way Essex

I've got a windows laptop and a Macbook pro. The Macbook is an amazing bit of kit although it took a short while to get used to it; it's quite different to a Windows laptop.

Something to note is that a lot of my Office 2003 files won't open on the Mac so bear that in mind if you need access to old files. I'm sure there's a solution but I've not looked into that.

No, still doing some research at the moment. interesting that you both have mac book pro laptops, how comes you both went that way rather than a desktop?

The only reason we have a laptop, we can put it away when we have finished with it, and the desk top is always on display for anyone to see, that's the main reason

Same reason as Dave. Laptop / Macbook are easier in terms of the space they take up and PCs are just too big IMO.
