I would never use Macs, everything from most companies I consider to be overpriced unnecessary junk. Especially from Apple, also Sony. I was interviewing people today and this one girl said she wanted a lot of hours cause she eventually wants to buy a car and a macbook. That made me cringe, over two grand for a giant iPod? No one, ever, will be able to justify to cost of one of those to me. When so many of my friends were graduating HS and going to college their parents wanted to buy them gifts, and they all wanted Macbooks. It has nothing to do with how good a Macbook is, cause they don't know crap about them, they just know that its hip to have one.
The Mac hardware is overpriced junk, the OS isn't superior to Windows in anyway. Windows is more secure unless you're a horny 12 year old who downloads every .exe he can and runs them all, while spamming his IP address in an AOL chat room. There are plenty of articles documenting that the only reason Windows seems like it has more security flaws is because most trojans and viruses are targeted at Windows, because it has the most users. If there were more Leopard users, there would be more trojans and viruses targeting them, even terrorists don't waste their time plotting to bomb an empty building.
I'm not sure why I got so into a little Mac bashing tonight, I guess just a long day at work...but the last product I ever bought from Apple was and will be the Ipod Mini I had years ago when they were popular.
