The trouble with PCs is that they are not intuitive and lack an ease of usability for those of us who are not computer geeks. I need platforms that let me create without knowing how to code. I'm not interested in code; I am interested in expressing myself.
There's something frightening about switching platforms. I'm feeling as much anxiety about it as I did about moving to New York. I know it's the right thing to do, it's just that making the leap into the unknown is tough to conceptualize.
So I've been hunting around on-line for articles that help easy my anxiety; ones that ultimately will help me make a better choice. Today, an article in USA Today's Technology section was a big help on both fronts. If you're making the switch, you may find it helpful, too. http://www.usatoday.com/tech/columnist/edwardbaig/2007-12-05-mac_N.htm
I also learned that something called Mac World happens in January and it is possible that the price of a Mac may drop shortly thereafter, or be significantly upgraded at the same price.
