I am an Apple convert. It took a bit, but I switched over to an Apple computer and an iPhone within the same week. You know why? Because the stuff works. No slowdowns, lock ups or any other nonsense. It's like a lamp. You turn it on and it works. Yeah, Apple stuff is expensive, but my most valuable resource is time and it just got to the point where all the time spent fixing my p.c. wasn't worth it.
