I'm a relatively recent convert to Apple. I began using computers in 1984 with an Atari 800xl. I replaced that I think in 1987 with an Amiga 2000 which I replaced in 2000 with a pc I built. I still have that pc although it's on its third motherboard/processor/ram and everything else inside the case has been replaced at least once. I use that thing mainly to rip disks for a small media server I have networked. I have had several Macs over the years. A Mac 512k, an SE30 and a Mac II, but I was never really very impressed with them even though I did like them. When I wanted to buy an MP3 player the people I knew warned me not to get an iPod, because they suck. So I bought a Creative Zen Sleek Photo, which over time I decided did in fact suck. I bought an iPod Classic 80 which I really liked a lot (my wife uses it now). I was having a really bad pc day (always either spending time straightening problems with mine or those of family members) when I daughter called saying she needed to buy a laptop and asked which she should buy. I told her "Anything but Windows, get a Macbook". She bought the Macbook and would bring it over showing it off and I got really fond of it. A year passes and I can't help but notice that she never calls for computer help. Never. I decide to replace my winxp laptop and buy myself a new macbook pro, giving the windows laptop to my wife. She never uses it, using my new Macbook Pro instead. So I give that to her, give my old WinXP laptop to my sister and buy myself another new Macbook Pro. Sister uses my old laptop for a few months, gives it back and orders herself a new Macbook Air. At this point I sell the old laptop at a garage sale. During this time I buy myself a new iPod Touch 4G 32g. For Christmas my daughter bought me a new iPad2 32G WiFi. Long story short I am a Mac user. And I'm liking it. I'm still learning things though. I've joined the local Mac Usergroup, LAMALUG in Lansing, MI. I guess that's about all.
