PC or Mac

We have a small (microscopic) business at home and consequently two PCs. These machines are about 6 years old and beginning to creak at the seams despite various "upgrades" to software and hardware. Anyway to cut a long story short we have just replaced them with 2 imacs.

In the end this was possible because using a downloadable program called Parallels we can run a virtual PC with MS Office etc on the Mac.

Despite the hassle of changing over I would not go back to a PC now. The imac is quieter and much faster than our PC s and the "virtual" PC works better than it did on the PC.

The whole imac is contained within one fairly slimline unit this vastly reducing the amount of cables and c**p.

The MAC screen is also great - it seems to be brighter and easier to read and at 20ins plenty big enough.

Has anybody else had the experience of going from PC to MAC or vice versa?

I used the PC for years and I did not have any problems. When I needed a new laptop I was persuaded to buy a macbook. Took a while to navigate the new system. Now I woluld not return. Great product.

Next time I need a new computer a Mac would certainly be in the running now. A few years ago I would have never really looked at them, but now they would be a real contender.
