    Ok I know this is stupid but im saving up for a macbook, and my dad wants to know what's so great about them... I'm a PC user so its hard for me to explain it to him. So I basically want all of you mac users to make me a list of why its better then windows... I have my reasons why I want one... But i want him to know all the great things.

    Its stupid I know, but oh well.

    simple

    BOOT CAMP

    allows you to have best of both worlds and from there you can decide. You can run your mac as a windows machine forever, or transition over to a Mac. Regardless of your choice, with BOOT CAMP you can keep all your legacy apps and run them in the Windows partition for as long as it takes you to transition over. I also use Crossover which uses the X-Windows layers of unix to run a good portion of windows application, but nothing is better than running it natively.

    Whatever you decide, the difference between the two have become more of personal preference than what others used to say like price, applications and ease of use. Both have all of these attributes and so it comes to choice.

    you must buy lepord, wich i hate. macs- from a parent perspectave- alot safer, no viruses. thats a big one. suport is great, something is wrong with your mac, you walk right into an apple store and the will help you on the spot if its a softwear problem. functuion- mas just work.you can run a mac with the programs on it stock no need for softwear protection and spywear bs. also, if you kno someone or are in college, the student discounts are nice.

    IMHO, Macs are better than Windows computers.
    Even though I have a Windows computer, I'm always amazed on the mac and how is it waayy better than the PC
    I like its UI, few viruses, great GFX, and all that stuff..

    the only thing i hate is they only have ONE button on the damn mouse!.
    As a Windows user since i was a very little kid, i got used to using a mouse with 2 or 3 buttons.
    And i kinda dont like how you have to hold the equivalent for the "Ctrl" key and click the desktop to have the "right click" functionality.

    but overall, its amazing.
    I wish I have a mac right now.
    I can go switch back and forth with my Windows computer and Mac. =]

    Say there aren't as many games you could play on a Mac compared to a PC! I was always on my PC playing games...but on my mac...well...nothing yet
