My current windows laptop (5 yeards old) sounds like a coffee grinder, so i know its on the way out. I recently completed a 5,000km camping trip over 3 weeks which was 90% rough corrugated roads and the other 10% was a desert crossing (literally driving acrosss 1,100 sandhills). I didnt want to take a new laptop on the trip, so i stuck with my old one. 3 hours after getting home and backing up my photos, my old laptop died ...
My oldlaptop is back up and running, but its time to get a new one.
5 years ago my "tech friend" told me he wouldnt be supporting my windows gear after this laptop, i had to change to apple.
I've got another tech friend, who helps me with viruses, extra memory etc ... and when i spoke to him he admitted going apple a year or two ago as well.
I mainly do photo stuff, and music. I'd been thinking about giving apple a go (I really didnt want to). I thought about it last time. I guess i finally decided to go "all in".
The only apple product in our household is an ipod shuffle. So yep, this is a big move. They feel like a nice solid unit. Very pricey, but i'm told they work much better, no virus;s, cleaner .... i'm giving them a shot. So there, i think i've convinced myself i've done the right thing.
