A British blogger, Jonathan at PluggedOut.com, says it best when he discusses the PC v Mac competition:
"For many years I never understood the appeal of Apple Mac computers. I viewed Mac zealots as simpletons who were afraid of the tinkering you could/had to do with Windows machines.
Then I grew up. I got older. My spare time became more valuable - no longer could I warrant spending an entire evening running virus scans, firewall updates, registry sweeps, spyware scans, and defragmentations. I wanted something that I could switch on, use, and switch off. Something convenient, reliable, well made, dependable.
I bought a Mac."
And the choir said, "AMEN!!"
