    My comments were directed at the typical switcher, not the Mac population in general. I wasn't insinuating that a computer user who desires simplicity is ignorant. The mere simplicity of Mac OS X (or the impression of it) coupled with creative marketing attracts the common ignorant PC user to the Apple store.

    I've been using Mac OS since 2001, and I switched because it just "worked" for me.

    Yep, you don't even have to be enrolled either as long as you have an acceptance for the upcoming year. (I got mine last month and I don't start until September.)

    Are there Mac users who are morons? Absolutely, but the same is true for PC users. Just because you want something to not be a pain in the ass doesn't mean you're incapable of understanding it or oblivious to the driving factors of your decision.
    Totally agree. I grew up on PC's and my friends and I used to build our own machines, constantly upgrading and revamping machines just for fun. There came a time where I didn't want to have to do that anymore. So about 8 months ago, I bought a MacBook Pro. It does everything I need it to do, without having to worry about upgrading every 6 months. Sure, I'll eventually have to buy a new one, but most PC users who constantly upgrade their machines might spend just as much as I will on a new machine. So it evens out, and I don't have to hassle with it. Why buy a used car that you have to work on every week when you can buy a new one for a bit more and not worry about it? I'm not saying one is better than the other, I just think that buying a Mac was a good choice for me. I commend you for attempting to argue with OP. When I didn't get a straight response the first time, I gave up. Karma for you.

    Wow...nice b.s. line. Did you get that from Apple's marketing campaign or did you read this of those ever so clever Mac boards?

    Anyone that is on the fence...buy what you want but don't buy a Mac because of lines like that.

    Hyperbole can not only prove a point but it can also be used to foster bull**** reputations.

    Pretty simple really. Looking to buy a new computer and I like to know my options. Didn't really know anything about Macs so I thought I'd ask, since they seem to be getting alot of hype these days. Couple that with seemingly everybody saying Vista is total crappola and here we are.


    Plus, I thought my expirience at the Apple store might get a few laughs
