Hey there.

I've recently been looking into getting a Mac. Right now I have a PC with Windows XP running on it. I'm slightly scared of getting a Mac since it seems to be such a big change.

So, I'd like to know your opinions on a Mac compared to a PC.

Thanks =)

To me, Mac just means a lot of limits and no benefits. It's more safe from viruses and such it seems, and they seem more reliable, however, they're also more expensive, and have way more limits. If you have applications installed on your PC, then you can't use most of them, becuase they're not compatible with Mac. So you either have to find the version of that program that's compatible, or just get something else. I don't see any benefit to switching over.

It really depends, more and more companies have began creating software for Mac, making a switch more enticing to me. Many newer macs (Intel) can run Windows XP along with Mac OS too.

before you get a mac, please borrow one from a friend for a day, you will see that like linux it is another language, I am not saying a bad one but most of what you know for window does not go for mac at which point you will either feel you want to know another language or stick with the one language you know already
