November 08, 2008


So glad you've finally come back to the bright side. I'm only sorry it took you so long. Just for fairness, I must say that I'm running Office 2008 on my MacBook and I have had no problem with it. Nice video and post, though.

Macs rule, PCs drool!

I actually love the RoboForm software myself. I use it all of the time and it takes all of the menial everyday tasks that I have to perform on my computer daily and shortens them extremely! What once took me fifteen minutes to complete now takes me only one second because RoboForm does the same task with just one click. In fact I wrote a Report about a lot of RoboForm’s capabilities for use that aren’t even touched on in the User’s Manual for RoboForm. You can get that Report here:


There is also a FREE version of RoboForm that you can download on this web page, just to test the RoboForm software out for yourself! I highly recommend it!

Yeah, what Brook said!

I still have an ancient iBook. It's slow and out of date, but it's still my buddy.

Zack, yes, I know how you feel. My MacBook is now my best (inaminate) friend. My only worry now is whether my love has gone into the danger zone:

Excellent video there! Of course, what you pointed out was just what you see from the outside. I'm sure within a month you will know why we truly appreciate the Mac.

Nice post!! I too love my MacBook!!


I adore my MacBook and wouldn't imagine life without it ... Macs are indisputably wonderful. Like you, I languished in PC land and then switched about 2 years ago having done video editing on Macs (Avid). I then read Steve Wozniak's biography iWoz (Steve was the science brain behind Apple) which is a delight. I'd urge you to read it. I also love down-loading widgets for my Mac - there are some great ones!

Enjoy your Apple :-)

My last experience with Apple was in 1984 on the IIe and IIc. For years, I had languished under an assumption that Macs were toy computers for quirky artsy folks. But, after having suffered under Bill Gates tyranny for many years, I went to BestBuy and played with the Macs. Lo and behold, it was like waking up to a bright, beautiful morning! We purchased an iMac and I haven't looked back since. My PC is still up and running, but it sits in a corner and is used mainly by my 3 year old for drawing and doodling. This isn't about Pepsi vs. Coke, it's about one product being clearly superior to another.


Cute little review, though really, isn't it a bit unfair to compare the loading times of a brand new computer with an ancient one? That struck me as being a tad odd, since your old laptop wouldn't be serious competition for any newer computer, mac or not, so I'm not sure what you were trying to show us here.
Out of curiosity... since when have you had your old laptop?

Second of all (and this is directed at the commenters), it constantly amazes me how people swoon so childishly over their computer and most of them magically turn into windows haters. Both systems have their upsides and their downsides. I'm typing this from my new alu macbook, incase anyone gets any ideas. I also have a PC that I like very much. Try to retain some objectivity, guys!

Jason, my ThinkPad is a few years old. My Lenovo laptop was bought in early 2008. So I'm not comparing ancient Windows history with a modern Mac story.

Having used Macs for a long time, then PCs for even longer, and now having shifted back to a MacBook, my feeling is that there's no contest between Apple computers and Windows machines.

The Apple experience is so superior, its no contest. I have zero problems with my MacBook (except those I caused myself). Everything is easier on a Mac. Everything works better.

Duh, ofcourse the mac salesman bashes Office for mac.

Come on. Are you really that stupid that you base your decisions on what that sales person said.

Office 2008 is just as good as the windows equivalent. And Iworks just doesn't work for me.

xfactor, each to his own. I've found that iWorks is just as good as the Office equivalents, and is easier to use.


works better than office mac, is reads and writes all the microsoft office formats, and is free.

everyone should check it out before dropping any cash on an office package of any kind.

Love your video. And I really love your quote about the windows wilderness. I referenced you on my blog. http://anticubestuff.com/2010/09/07/so-glad-i-have-a-mac/

I've just bought an applemac pro after four years with microsoft stuff. Windows vista -aaaargh! Never again. My mac seems so intuitive, no 'configuring updates' notices, or noisy fan, or adverts, windows telling me i can't do this or that, error notices, etc., etc. Last year I bought an ipod, as my introduction to apple. Then came an iphone and ipad, and finally my macpro. I work as a carer, so i have little money, and had to save really hard to buy my mac, but i would say that don't let the expense put you off. Macs are worth the investment.

Jesus Christ. Bunch of idiots that express feelings about commercial piece of machinery. You are all sick.
