    just want to throw in that ive got a mac. after 10 years of destroyed PCs... i had to get one... i've had it for a year now and it runs as cleanly and smoothly as the day i bought it. never a problem.

    people put windows on their macs for one reason only. To use unavailable programs. Games mostly... but some other programs as well. in my case it was AutoCadd.

    within 3 minutes of installing windows and norton and autocadd.... i had 3 viruses. 3minutes. 1 year... no viruses... 3 minutes... 3 viruses. i hadnt even directly connected to the internet either. they went straight in through the network.
    now everytime i want to use windows i have to unplug the DSL before i startup.

    people use macs because they dont freak out on you. they are simple, and years ahead of the competition. they are fully plug and play... nearly every program i have was just drag and droped to my applications folder and it was installed.... their screens are higher resolution than standard pc screens - including most of the flat panels. they are basically built for creative people... get past all the confusing stuff and on to the task at hand in the least amount of time as possible so that the creative process won't be broken.

    the only problem i've ever had was watching videos on the internet. then, i found a wonderful site with free plug-ins and now i can see anything online that i want... you can also drag and drop any image you find online directly to the desktop.

    but heres my favorite part.... rainstorm outside... lights go out. unsaved 15 page term paper lost right? nope. as soon as the electricity came back i turn it back on... asks if i want to restore my Word session. I do, of course. and i think i lost the sentence i was typing... thats it. Ive had saved papers on my old pc disappear for no reason.

    What the hell do you people do on your computers? I haven't had a virus in years.

    Office has auto-recovery as well.

    btw What is AutoCad used for?

    you might not realize that you have dormant trojans and such

    run a good Virus checker and see the list

    back when I had a Compaq running XP, I decided to run a virus scan on my HD out of curiosity ....... there were over 100. I found it weird that I seemed to not be experiencing any adverse effects .... until I Tried to remove them
    -then everything went to hell . several Trojans activated - it was bad

    after a week and several re-formats and reinstalls of the OS, I bought a Mac

    alot of that time was speant in college on the schools networks. i still live in a college area saving money and paying loans and am on the local dsl system with about 6000 kids under 23.

    AutoCadd is a computer drafting software. can be used for anything that needs to be built. I hate it personally because i can build the same thing in another 3-d program in about a 10th of the time (and it will look 1000 times better) but many companies and engineers still use AutoCadd for layouts and blueprints.

    I don't use Norton. I changed not long ago to Avast (Makes the computer run so much smoother too)
