Likes Macs but is embarrassed to admit it. Hmmmmm.:nerd:I am, but even I know that in reality, Macs are PCs too...
I try to shy away from the "Apple Fanboy" stereotype. :wink:
Since I wrote this a few years ago, Ive been working at a VA hospital as a clinical informaticist (a nurse geek who troubleshoots our Windoze-based medical record system). All windows at work and all mac at home until 2 years ago, when I was finally allowed to telework. Was happily able to remote in to my windows work machine from my mac book at home via a Citrix gateway. Found a huge mac user group within the VA who were doing the same. Luckily, the national VA medical record program is unix-based and therefore relatively easy to upgrade and maintain in a mac-like environment. The windows hardware is a different story!! But that's what kept me and a huge IT department in regular paychecks. I retired last year to a cabin on a lake with my MacBook Pro, iPad mini and iPhone. Ahhhh!All Apple, all the time--ever since my first Mac in 1985. Worked for Apple 2002-2004 and mainlined the Kool Aid. Taught classes at the local Apple Store for 'switchers' who were uniformly delighted. No platform is perfect, but Mac is just waaay beyond, IMHO.
Figured so!Likes Macs but is embarrassed to admit it. Hmmmmm.:nerd:
I was being sarcastic. I'm PC and Android all the way. I do have a 7th generation iPod nano I inherited from daughter #3 when she went to live with her mom and left it behind. There really isn't an alternative to it in the non Apple universe and it was free, so I tolerate it. It's all I listen to in my car.
I have a 233 MHz iMac G3 (tray loader) and a 350 MHz iMac G3 (slot loader). Both have the puck mouse. I'm "ok" with it, though it's not ergonomic at all and I can see why Apple very quickly changed the mouse.But we all can agree that the stupid puck mouse that apple made back in the early 2000's was the worst thing ever made by them right?
*drools*Who uses a mouse anymore? Haven't used one, in 20 years.
This one is pure beauty. It sit on my desk collecting dust.
I use adobe creative cloud, have not had internet for 3 weeks...been using photoshop, illustrator and indesign the whole time....offline.Didn't matter what computer. Couldn't use anything today. Cable was down most the day. Stupid latest greatest Adobe programs are base off internet access now. Good thinking there. Pay buy the month. Adobe, Comcast, you owe me a day.
Ray gun. Command Shift 4. Make your photo, selection, off you go.
Indeed Raygun! Apple is like Bugatti, you're definitely paying for the logo first, then for the hardware. And for the price of the hardware, you can get something different that will do the job better. :wink:
As for hardware resource capabilities, all factors considered I think PCs and Macs are about equal...
The problem with Macs is that for a while, their operating systems (namely, Lion and Mountain Lion) heavily tasked hardware, so when it came time for heavy duty processing, they couldn't keep up with equivalent machines.
Though, I'm VERY pleased with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. 10.9 is notably faster than 10.8 and that's without any hardware changes at all.

Command Shift 4 is not intuitive, print screen button is...and is labeled.
Thought the same at first. Two years ago I moved from a 21" Apple monitor to my standard size iPad. Since I no longer need to do work requiring a large screen or a full computer, the iPad has now become my computer. I have never looked back..... but the 13" size screen is a compromise unless I spend a great deal more.
