    Even if I wanted to....due to work I wouldn't be able to. I have to have access to our back end software to review stats, pull reports, review and reassign work assignments to employees, etc... The challenge is the that I need Win IE to do it. We have tried, it won't work with a MAC.

    I used to be a graphic artist & 3D modeler so I would like one for my personal movie, pictures, animations, etc... But at the moment I can't afford to keep my PC up to date along with getting a new MAC and buy all new software. Someday when Ed McMan comes ringing my door bell, I certainly would have one.

    The 24 inch iMac is a real beauty, but I too have trouble justifying it. It's a luxury, I don't know if I can handle both operating systems, and some essential programs for me are not supported. Dual booting can be a pain in the neck and I'm not quite sure about the Windows emulation software Parallels, although I hear that it is excellent (another copy of XP and lot's of probably expensive memory ) But I'll reconsider when Leopard comes out in the Spring.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and find another one for $275!

    If he were a Windows expert he would not be jumping ship. More likely he was brainwashed by those really clever iLife commercials. They can have a powerful affect on the weak minded.
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.

    I had a mac.... gave it to a family member.

    After reading that article it is odd that he would switch... he states that he runs windows in virtual pc a lot... my point, what is the point? If I have to do all of that, why switch?

    For me an OS is a tool. What gets the job done. XP does that... vista will, eventually. And I've had vista since oct testing and purchased in jan... but I still boot into xp. I'll switch over eventually.

    There are also articles on people switching from mac to vista, BTW.... don't know why they would do that, but whatever.

    I upgraded my Dell to a 20" iMac...after the honeymoon was over I came to the conclusion that Mac OS X and Macintosh machines aren't the holy grail of computinng some Mac users make it out to be.

    I really like the machine but can't justify the extra costs in the long run in terms of software, etc.

    On the plus side, I don't really have to worry about Mac viruses. It was also nice to just plug in my printer and have the thing work w/o downloading drivers.

    On the negative, it was a premium and the Macro support for Excel Mac is outdated and will be phased out in Mac's Office 2007.
