<strong>hey mac lovers. i've got the classic struggle question between good and evil: should i buy a mac or PC? please name your favorite benefits of using a macintosh. the biggest thing thats preventing me right now is worrying about executing finance programs i will need to use that are only available for windows systems, and i know about VPC, but it seems too slow.</strong><hr></blockquote>
you're right. don't use VPC as a way to "get by on the mac" . it's not very good. it's not meant to be an everyday use app. I can't stand when I see a salesperson sell a mac using VPC as the big reason. They do it constantly here in NYC. Very sad.
As for benefits?
too many to name. best thing you can do is go and use an iBook either at a compusa or hopefully an apple store. you'll be hooked.
if the software really is only pc and there is no mac alternative unfortunately the iBook may not be for you
