MAC or PC?

Time has come to get a new laptop! My current one is a Dell, and I love it. I have never had a MAC and heard wonderful things about it. I am trying to figure out which one to get.

I'd love to hear your experience! Any thoughts? Thanks for sharing!


  1. I'm a MAC gal for life! I don't think I could ever go back to a PC after having owned a Macbook. I've had it for almost four years now, and not once have I gotten a computer virus. Yes, they are pricier than PC laptops, but it's worth not having to deal with all the headaches of crashes, viruses, worms, etc. Also, all the software that comes with it makes managing your media very easy. As you are an Etsy entrepreneur, I take it you probably take lots of photos, and Macs generally geared towards those who work a lot with photos, videos, music, etc. Other than my son, my dog, and my scrapbooks, my laptop is what I would make sure to grab if the house ever caught on fire! Hope this helps!

  2. I couldn't agree more with MP. I switched back to a Mac a couple of years ago and I don't think I'll ever go back to a PC either. I've got an iMac and it is amazing. I'm constantly learning about the great featured it has. It has been so user friendly and I just love how all the applications work so much better on the Mac than on the PC. Mac really simplifies things and since my switch I have been able to learn programs that I gave up on that were on my PC. The little extra features that you find on a Mac are so great and fun. It took me a couple of weeks to get used to all the differences between a PC and a Mac but well worth the time to learn those differences. I hope you get a Mac!

  3. We had Macs for years in college and after. Ours seemed to crash all the time and (at that time) it was hard to find compatable programs and the OS was a MESS! I'm sure they have resolved all that.

    For us now, a Mac is just too expensive for what I can get from a PC. And we have excellent virus protections software on our PC -- we have never had virus problems. So, I will be buying another PC when it is time to replace. All we use our computer for is internet, e-mail, basic family photos & videos, and docs. No fancy gaming or programming here.

  4. never had a mac. but after comments 1 and 2 i might switch!
