Did Hell Freeze over…..?

No, but I did buy an iMac today…

Don’t panic just yet…   I am not quite ready for the Apple switch; I simply purchased this to understand the “Other Side”.   I am fed up of going to client sites where the Mac exists and not being able to answer the user questions (especially when it is sitting on a SBS Network).

But you know what….   the REAL reason I decided to purchase the iMac was simply due to this advert. I think that our friends in Apple have finally figured out that to get to people like me, they need to say things like “Intel” or “Microsoft Office on the Mac” etc.  (But I should say the commentary is different on the Irish / UK version of this ad, and convinced me more than the one on this webclip).

I’ll let you know how I get on…. 😉

    Hmmm, not quite sure what I think of this, considering the costs involved in Apple products in general compared to PC’s.

    I just recently tried installing Linux on one of my PC’s and was pleasantly surprised.
    Especially as this kind of move is completely free (economically) and that is already a hard concept to compete against.

    I could imagine that same *feeling* transpiring upon you when you boot up and go exploring on your iMac. Afterall Mac IS quality, just like Microsoft and other reputable companies and that in itself is already 50%.

    So in short, congratulations! 🙂
