Can you even recall the days when there were no computers? If you can, then you know that back then, a typewriter was just a typewriter. Then IBM came out with the one with the ball. It was a really big deal because you could actually change the font.
The personal computer much revolutionized the way we communicate. Now the rest is history with some many applications, games; how can anyone live without a computer? Sometimes it looks as if there is only one type of computer, absolutely not true.
Like so many of us today, I have actually been tethered to a computer for about ten years and I also thought that all computers were created equally until I was using an Apple desktop computer or Mac.
An Apple desktop computer is about the same as an ordinary computer as a horse is to a cow. The cow runs, well, like a cow. The horse (and the Apple desktop computer) is sleek and efficient, build for performance. Can you tell that I'm an Apple fan by now? Yeah? It is pretty obvious as it? The cow will do what you want it to with a little encouragement. The apple desktop computer lives to follow your commands just like the horse. The cow needs to rest and often quits working 'just because'. The Mac continues to go on and on and on because that is what it is made to do.
Daiei may think I'm just talking out my butt here but I became a true believer after a month with my Apple desktop and quickly came to the realization, it never once crashed on me. The 'cow' crashes all the time. Sure, if you worked with a PC for a long time, you'll need a period of adjustment to wean yourself away. Not that the Apple computer is hard; it is just a little bit different.
To open a file from the "finder" known on a PC as the explorer, you can not press 'return' that takes some getting use to. And here is another thing that is not the same with an Apple desktop. No viruses. I do not even own a virus cleaning system because I do not need it, although I keep a virus checker going in the background on my Apple desktop computer just in case. And what do you suppose it finds? PC viruses that have no effect on my Mac.
Another great advantage of owning an Apple computer is the automatic software updates from the Internet. It actually communicates to the Internet and automatically updates itself. No checking the website, no having to decide what you need. The complete shebang is updated automatically. Pretty cool, huh?
I always tell my pals, my Apple desktop computer is a real computer; the "other one" is nothing more than a pretender.
