Why Macintoshes Are Better

posted by Scott Benish on December 07, 2005

I’ve been a Mac addict since I was a kid. Amidst all the schools with PC-powered computer labs, my elementary/middle school was equipped completely with Macintoshes. We had a Commodore 64 at home that I used to play Reader Rabbit, but I’d never even seen a Windows machine until my dad got one when I was in 5th grade. I was not a fan of anything about it, from the clunky monitor and tower to the strange, unpredictable operating system. I’ve been working on my father to make the switch ever since.

I think the truest thing you can say about an Apple is that about 90% of the things you wished would be possible in Windows are possible on a Macintosh. Ever wanted your address book and your instant messaging software to integrate seamlessly with your e-mail? That’s the very basis of OSX. Ever wanted your calendar and to do lists in one simple, color coded display? Ever wanted every document on your computer - from PDFs to calendar items to saved chats - to be instantly and easily searchable? Ever wanted a web browser that can manage your RSS feeds? Macs have it all, and a hell of a lot more.

To top it off, Macs are attractive. I’ve actually decorated my apartment in primarily white and silver, because my computers blend in seamlessly with the decor. But their stylish muted colors and rounded corners will work well in any living or working space, even if you aren’t quite as much of a Mac-head as I am.

But for you PC users, the ones who are worried about compatibility and picking up the ins and outs of a new operating system, let me assure you that this little program will not only let you go back to a Windows environment any time you want, you’ll actually have a leg up on people who are using Windows on non-Mac machines.

Make the switch. You’ll be glad you did.
