    I haven't fully switched yet. I still have my PC for some stuff. But I'm spending more time on the MBP I just got last weekend. Love it. I've even tried xp via parallels and man its fast. In a few months, I'll be looking to replace all the pcs in my parents' home with iMacs.

    My only problem is that I'm so concerned with scratching my MBP :noes:

    Complimented my iMac with an iPod today. I'm very pleased with my iMac so I'll be riding the Apple leg hard and long. I'll be teasing my Dad until he switches too :mamoru:

    My next computer will be a Mac. The only problem is that I use my PC for gaming, and it's hard to find Mac games at the store (other than those made by Blizzard which are compatible with both Mac and PC)
    A play on the old Apple/switch commercials. . http://daryld.com/sw_switch.php

    It really is a better computer, shame that it doesn't get nearly the software attention that PCs do.

    (boot camp lets you run windows on a Mac, not emulating within tiger but actually booting windows)
