Computer Advice…..HELP!!


No, my computer hasn’t crashed.


And this advice isn’t urgent.  But if you have a second, let me pick your brain.



I know people feel strongly one way or the other about this………but the question is, are you a MAC or PC user?

And then, of course, why?

Okay, we have always been PC users.  They have always worked pretty well for us.  And the price?  Well, it’s obvious you can buy a lot more for your money.  But our computers always seem to get sick after a couple of years.  And I don’t know if it’s me, or how I use my computer, what programs I use……..or maybe that’s just normal.  But when I talk to MAC users, they always seem to talk about their computers lasting for years and years.  Is that crazy to believe?  Or are my MAC using friends just lucky?



I know we live in a PC world…..but those MACs are gaining ground.  There must be a reason for that, right?



I guess PCs and MACs are good for different things.  And I hear that for those who are designers, there’s no question that MACs are superior for that type of work.  PCs are better at other things…… maybe it all just comes down to what type of work you are doing on your computer???



I always seem to have 4 or 5 programs running at once on my PC.  Have you ever used Photoshop?  It’s a power sucker!!  But it’s open A LOT on my computer.  I also always have Picasa (photo storage program) open, sometimes Adobe Acrobat, a Word document or two, and then a few browser windows.  It makes my husband crazy…….because the result, is a sluggish computer.  (Hey, at least I put the toilet seat down!!) I know, this is probably just because my computer is older and needs to be updated.  And I need to close my programs when I’m not using them. But my goodness, keep up Little Missy.



Okay, now MAC users………..let me hear it.  Why do you like your MAC?  Do you just like being in the MAC club (haha) or is there really that much of a difference?



And MAC haters………what’s the deal?  What drives you crazy about those MACs??

Oh, and what’s with you not needing much anti-virus stuff on a MAC?  I’m always on top of that with our PC, always cleaning out old files, always checking to see what’s lurching in the background, etc.  Do you really not install anti-virus on your MACs?




Is it obvious I’m on the fence? I use the computer a lot.  And I love having a desktop to spread out and work on my little hobbies.  So if I can find a computer that keeps things more organized, cuts down on loading time, and will last me longer……..I’m all over it.  So I would love to hear your thoughts.

Okay, that was a mouthful. Thanks for reading.  And even more for responding.


If I could have you over to talk this through, I would.

We’re having leftovers for dinner?  Anyone want to join us? ;)
