Should I, in my situation, switch to a Mac?
I’m very, very confused, rather desperate. I think about switching to a Mac, because I have many problems with my PC, like bluetooth is against my will, crashes sometimes, many restarts, slow boottimes etc. etc. But on the other hand I have lots and lots of software for my PC. (yes, I know about Bootcamp and Parallels)
But I just don’t want the problems anymore. I want a fast computer that boots fast, ready-to-use, and controls everything for me. I want to be in harmony with my computer if you want to call it that way.
I just read all the reasons to buy a Mac and watched those ads, but they just come from Apple ofcourse, and they don’t mention the good points of a PC, like 90% is using a PC.
I have this new Vista PC for 4–5-6 months now, so I’m not going to switch right away. My parents don’t like that, and I have 0 money.
I probably have €3000,- in 3 years or so, and then Microsoft will come with Vienna, but I’m not going to buy Vienna. (or whatever it’s called) I think i will buy a Mac then, but I wanted to ask you guys (and gals) first.
We have 4 computers (mine excluded) and my brother and parents are happy with them. Will the Mac in our network not interfere with the computers? Can I connect my VGA-monitor (Acer) with my new Mac? My external harddrives? My PDA? (Acer) My camera? (guess… Acer) My Wacom Bamboo Tablet? My Logitech Harmony Remote Control?
If you answer, please markup the object you are talking about.
Solution for external HDD
If anyone could help me decide, it would be really appreciated!
Many many thanks,
P.S. Does every Macbook Pro come with a remote and all those funny things? And will Leopard come with Macbook in 3 years?
