What is the biggest disadvantage to using a mac? Biggest advantage?
-- Craig Nankervis (email@example.com), March 04, 2002
Biggest disadvantage would be that 90% of the world uses PCs and people do not understand that using a Mac does not make you less technical or less productive or anything. It is interesting because a lot of this depends on what field you are in. If you are an artist, musician, entertainer, videographer, you will most likely be using a Macintosh. Also, Macs still have a strong % of educators in higher Ed and K-12 using Macs. I work with the UC and a lot of folks there use Macs and at CSUSB a large number of folks use Macs.
It is unfortunate that many people feel that using a PC means that you are a more serious computer user.
Now that we have OS X a Unix based operating system that never crashes! Yeah! And Apple has created a true digital hub for Photos, Music, Video and creating CDs and DVDs I believe Macs are still viable for the classroom.
There are some great Mac Myths that get dispelled at http:// www.apple.com/myths/
There are also a lot of people that are raving about the new Mac!
