I know this is not the forum for this, but I also know I can trust ya'all and maybe get a chuckle or two. My trusty, dusty and crusty pc has given up the ghost with only a minor loss of data. So now I'm on the hunt. Should I go another eight year with a new flashy windows pc. Or close the circle and get a new MBP. A Mac would make me 100% apple, which amazes my kids since I "was" a google guy. The thing is my IPad and iPhone have been so good to me, I just can't resist wanted a MAC. My question is how many of you have MACs? is the learning periods significant. Cost? -' I can get two new Win PCs for the price of a MAC, and on the other hand pc laptops only last two years in my experience. A MBP can last almost forever!
