I use my PC for web browsing, games, and work (online, office, etc.).
I know someone who uses a Mac, and I've used it, but I don't quite like how it feels. I disagree that it feels faster. Each to his own...
If you think you know what anyone will be using in 2020 (when today's first graders will graduate from college), you must have a heck of a magical crystal ball.
True, but the companies that make processors for Microsoft are under more pressure to perform better, and Microsoft doesn't really need to worry about that, so they can concentrate on their OS. This means that they are a better bet for the future, but it doesn't gaurentee anything.
As for the present, people may want a computer that is cheap, even if it isn't very fast or powerful. Even Apple has admited that Dell's machines are "cheaper at the low end."
Finally, I looked at Apple's top ten reasons to switch. I noticed that speed is not mentioned. Also, it says, "it doesn't crash." My XP hasn't crashed once, as far as I can remember. "Most of our customers are up-and-surfing within 15 minutes": how about windows? Start it up, log in, set passwords, and double click Internet Explorer. How long does that take? Even if it does take longer, you need to install virus protection. Windows is, after all, a huge target. Last but not least, "It Works Effortlessly With PCs." Well, I've sent many e-mails to someone with a Mac, and I've noticed some things: pictures invariably disappear after a few replies, and the Mac user can't recieve my hyperlinks. I don't know... Maybe Apple should think about not judging something until they've tried it.
