Need some opinions

Well, here is the deal. I'm thinking of getting a new computer. I've been
looking at the iMac, 24" thing with most of the bells and whistles. My
machine is getting long in the tooth and with the new Vista program being
put on all the PC's I'm not sure that it is within my brain cells to learn.
I also hear it is a memory hog and that existing machines will need memory
The new machine seems to fit my needs and capability.
there you go, don. that's all you need. the mac is a stable and reliable
and 'almost' virus-free machine. the operating system is a variant of UNIX
and rock-solid. there aren't a lot of freeware or other software for it for
casual use, but if you like the available email, browser, and newsreader
and if that's 99% of what you do, then you won't be disappointed. and, if
you ever crave some Windows software, there's a windows emulator you can
buy that allows windows programs to run. i don't think any computer is
flawless, but the beauty of the mac is that the hardware and software are
both made by the same company. Microsoft doesn't have that pleasure... :)
Anyone here using the Macintosh machines? Anyone here familiar with them?
I have an old Mac downstaairs. It is about 8 years old and still
runs. I went to the PC because there are still a bunch of programs
online that cannot be downloaded to a Mac.
I like computer games, and yes, there are way too many that are off limits
for Mac users.
Intel makes the CPU for the new Mac's.... ATI makes the video cards....
except for programing the Mac's and PC's are the same now.... I love the
commericals too.... Tell people yours are better when the heart of the
system is the same as thiers.... I would rent one of the Mac's and try it
out for a few days or weeks before buying anything that isn't the normal
system used by most everyone in the world....
I love the ads, though. :D
I was pondering the same thing, for much the same reason(s),
and someone told me they are a lot less stable than they were.
Maybe someone here can cast some light on this.
Which machines are less stable? I'm not reading this right or you missed
something in writing it. Read David's answer above. He said they are "rock
solid", and he is referring to the Macintosh.
The Macs. I asked this very question, and that is the answer
