I asked down in computers and programming cuz I didn't notice this forum....and that thread seems to have drifted off topic. I'm not trying to start a flame war or say that Win > mac or vice versa. I'm looking answers. So tell me why is the mac your choice for computer?? I'm a SR CS student and debating on whether to buy a macbook or another windows based notebook and I honestly don't know which one to buy. I like the looks of the mac but I'm concerned that all my old games and other software won't run on it. Also Dell has 1 year no interest financing which is VERY appealing to a cash strapped college student....especially when considering the price of the macbook. So why did you buy a mac?? What keeps you interested in macs???
