With the exception of my time at college, I've always used a Personal Computer (PC). On a few occasions, I've had to use a Mac and truthfully, I've found them difficult to use - mostly because what comes naturally to me after years of working on a PC does not always translate with Apple computers.
However, I'm now seriously considering switching teams and jumping on the Mac-bandwagon. Frustrations with computer viruses and several other annoyances have really started to tip the scales.
As a marketing guy, I can appreciate the dogmatic loyalty that Apple users have for the Mac and I have been impressed by the way the company has consistently brought consumer-savvy products to market that seem to be both easy to use and even easier to integrate into their computers.
However, as enamored as I am with Apple's product line, I still have worries about PC applications converting easily since I use my home computer as a back-up to help me do editing and other work during the week. I am also unimpressed by the cost of the Mac. However, I've decided to remain open minded until I make a visit to the Apple Store on Boylston Street to see what they have to offer (and what it will cost me).
