I'm a Mac!

I'd like to applaud Microsoft for their great effort with their new "I'm a PC" commercials. Some of them are great, and I like watching them. I've read that sales and searches for new PCs have even increased slightly. However, I am a Mac girl, through and through. I switched to a Mac a little over 3 years ago and at first I hated it because it was so different from what I was used to. After a month I realized it was just breaking bad habits, and that everything on a Mac was actually easier for me to access and understand. I've been a Mac girl since that moment, and I can honestly say I'll never switch back to a PC.

At one point my Mac did have some serious issues -- I had my optical drive and logic board replaced twice. However, when it works, it works. There are no issues with the computer freezing, no programs (except for the Microsoft ones!) ever encounter fatal errors and "have to close", and there is no such thing as Ctrl Alt Del (that command doesn't even work on a Mac!) However, Apple took care of me, and when my computer wasn't functioning properly, they sent me a new MacBook on them. What other company do you know that has that kind of customer service?

So, that is why hubby and I (he's also now a convert!) cracked up laughing when we saw this commercial today. Great response to all the new "I'm a PC" ads. Way to go Apple! You will laugh too, even if you are a PC!



So tell me, what are you? Are you a Mac? Or are you a PC?

I haven't used a Mac since grade school and probably never will. I'm not a fan of change and I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Both my husband and I have Macs. We wouldn't have it any other way!

I've been a Mac girl since birth. Very nearly literally. My dad owned a newspaper. Mac = graphics. So we've always had Macs. Now that I'm doing graphic design as a WAHM, I've got an iMac and a macbook to keep me company.

I used to be a mac but actually ended up selling that puppy. I got good money for it what can I say. ROFL Now I am a PC but if I own a PC the only one I will ever own is a HP. That's my stipulation.

Well, I'm a PC and I don't plan on switching anytime soon. I have to use Macs when I'm working on the computer at college, but other than that, I've always had a PC. I can't say I'll never change, but I haven't given it serious thought.

I am a total Mac girl. Your right on the whole getting used to it thing. It took me forever to find a word type program.
