I’ve always felt that Apple creates the best technology in its field, though I was never a huge fan of the Macintosh operating system. The OS restricts me from many things that I would like to do on Windows, all for safety and stability. And overall, it’s not that great.
However, lately I think all that’s changed. The new Mac OS X has an awesome architecture and Leopard just seems plain awesome (with the exception of the number of installation problems that’s been reported). And now in my later years, I think I would sacrifice whatever I would with Windows just to avoid that dreaded blue screen of death, Windows Explorer crashes, and just for the overall ease of use. Cracking things and customization in the craziest of ways is in my past. Plus, all of the Apple laptops are just plain awesome. They come with awesome hardware and a very slick design.
Overall, you just can’t beat Apple. They’re #1 in everything these days and they’re $180.00 stock shows it.
