    I have never used an apple but my work laptop is a Dell and I love this thing. If I ever get fired or something I will have to buy myself a new one.

    Maybe I associate Apple with work, that's why I prefer my PC.

    I've been debating this one for my next upgrade. I'm on my 3rd Dell at work and my first Dell at home (previously had a Gateway). Love, love, love them. If I do get another Dell, it won't be till the end of 09 of 10 for Windows 7. Will not spend my time on Vista.

    I picked up a course catalog for Parsons last week. I looked up the various applications that were required for classes on Apple's website and downloaded the users guide to give me an idea of what to expect. I feel like I'm missing the boat on creating things with video and sound.

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    After using macs almost exclusively for six years, I was forced to go back to PC's because I couldn't afford a mac to replace my dead one, and, UGH! It's hell! Vista is the worst piece of shit since Windows ME.

    I would love to be able to feel good about buying an apple product, but that went away with the first color imacs when I was in like grade six. I still have a pair of water damaged classic IIs in my basement somewhere. I also have an old IBM monochrome DOS machine. and the first 386 3.1 machine that I ever used e-mail on, back before you could do anything except e-mail...

    I am predicting that within five years there will be a linux-based manufacturer. it's how these things work. then there'll be a new open source upstart

    Both have their place in the market. PCs are more practical by a wide margin.

    I'm not to much of a gamer, but I love my music and film.

    Since i've switched to apple, I've never gone back. A few times at PC clubs to play some games with friends, but that's about it.

    VMWare Fusion. Fantastic product that does side-by-side Mac and Windows OS running on a Mac box with all kinds of lovely functionality between the two.

    At work I use a G4 for graphic design. At home I have the an ATX tower that I have been upgrading parts in for about six years for graphic design, gaming, home theatre, and musick. I like the freedom to upgrade at my leisure and besides the G4's spinning beach ball of death and crashing of InDesign gets really annoying.

    I just received my Dell laptop back from someone at work who took almost 2 months to repair it. I wasn't able to complain since he fixed it for almost free. I am currently working on finalizing a music project.

    Someone in our IS group mentioned that the entire company will be switching over from Dell to HP. An entire group of people have been working on creating our own bios. Can you imagine our IS guys calling for service which should be covered under warranty and in the same sentence say, "oh yeah by the way, it's running on our own custom bios!"? Yeah, they're really going to be supporting us.
