Saying no way to Apple products, I drifted from the Atari ST (great machine, no user base) into the IBM world. Microsoft DOS sucked, Windows was even worse, but like most clones, I made do the best I could.
A few months ago, my Dell Inspiration showed ominous signs of pending failure: boot errors, frequent blue screens of death - common enough with Windows, but the frequency was increasing. I looked around - XP was on the way out the door and Vista sounded like hell on earth. I looked at the new Macbook-a little light on ram , but the reviews were good and the operating system seemed solid. I said what the hell and plunked down $1300 and took that puppy home.
I haven't been disappointed.
