    Marie buying a mac would be the best experience your paddy will be in heaven and you will be happy as you will have less problems as Mike said ... It just works . As for virus issues I have 400 computer sites whom have Macs that I have delivered a huge number of computers to over the past years and since osx began I have not sold one virus package to any one of my clients as they don't need it. If however they install windows 7, vista or xp on to the Mac yes then they need virus protection for the windows install. Osx is bullet proof does not crash easy to operate and fully cross platform compatbility meaning sharing files and connecting to windows networks. The macs also come with iphoto, and video software that makes viewing both movies from your movie camera and Picts from your still camera a breeze.. My answer to you is. Just do it

    When I started to see Macs at my work I figured I better become familiar with them and boy was I surprised.
    This is very interesting to me. I agree to, every time I go into that Apple store, I see those Macs and I am very intrigued!

    So I wouldn't hook my iPad up to my windows computer any more?

    I don't mind all.

    I really am pleased so far! I am still getting accustomed to the changes but it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.

    Congrata on your new mac!

    I purchased my first mac in 07, and haven't looked back. It was literally within the first few minutes of using my mac where I started understanding the intuitiveness of the OS, and before I knew it, I was loving it, wondering why I hesitated for so long getting one.

    We added another mac in 08, and upgraded to another Mac in '09! Got the iPad this year of course, and am looking forward to getting the new 11.6" macbook air. It's not only crazy light and thin, but crazy fast too! If anyone doubts what a 1.4GHz 2GB mb air with 64GB of flash memory can do, they haven't seen one in person! It's definitely my next Mac purchase.

    Like they say.. Once you go mac ..

    One thing I have found in this forum since I joined in March is the number of Long time Mac users and also the number of users whom have switched. Apple calls it the HALO effect . As I have mentioned in other posts my experience dates back to 1984 with t he Mac and further with the apple II (1977) looking back at what has happened since then is amazing. I was part of the negative down side back in the 90,s trying to provide Macs to my customers when every one was saying Apple is doomed. I even reverted to selling clones and had my wrist slapped by Apple as it was not allowed under my dealers contract. The good news was Steve came back and every thing moved forward. The big change was marketing and distribution by reducing the number of CPU,s from 30 to 6 and then offering CTO built to order thus becoming more efficient in controlling inventory. When osx finally matured large companies and high end users bought the top end macs by the bucket load as Apple had finally provided what they needed to be productive. I asked one of my clients the other day whom i have been supplying macs since 93 what is the best thing he loved about the Mac.. Answer. " cost of ownership is the lowest of any computers he had owned ". He also owns 5 pc,s for accounting. Just wanted to share that with you.....

    I really am impressed with this machine so far, I actually haven't touched my iPad since I got it. Granted, I know that my iPad will still have it's uses, so I'm not getting rid of it of course. I hated using my HP laptop due to the poor battery life and performance, but now I actually enjoy using my MacBook Pro. I do wired tethering from my Android phone and it works great at work when I can't access many websites due to government censorship.

    These touchpad swipe functions impress me more and more everyday. I wish all computers made it this easy to do basic tasks.
