Congrats on your purchase

You'll be amazed how browsers on the mac function exactly like a pc, software functions are the same as pc... wait..... Mac's have Intel Core 2 Duo processors...oh shoot, so does the pc.

Since Apple likes to market stuff like intergrated software I'll just point out:

Anyone that does any graphic work of any kind isn't going to use some cheeze ball OS installed software to do any video or picture editing. Same goes for music or anything else for that matter. See what additional things you'll need to do any kind of multi-track sound recording with multiple playback and recording going on.

You can do all the same shit on both systems.....

it is still is just a PC.

Oh, and everything I just typed was done on a Vista system that I upgraded from XP pro. Apple claims you need all this additional hardware BS to upgrade. Good thing we all don't fall for marketing hype BS or we'd all be using macs.

Older system running Vista Business perfect. My wireless connection setting even carried over with the upgrade. I didn't need to touch anything after the upgrade was done. Only needed to download the latest Cisco VPN software.

Not really... I guess just pointing out some marketing myths.

After all, it still is just a computer. It can't do anything any better than the next. Except maybe make you look a little more nerdy sitting at starbucks.

Why me? Are you assuming that I would give someone a hard time about a Mac? Nah man, enjoy it! I hear there's all sorts of cool games out for it like that neat Apple logo puzzle game where all the pieces have to slide into place.
