been a PC guy forever and will be a PC guy for a long, long time. but. i bought an iPhone (4) last year and it took all of about 14-minutes to fall in love with it. i used to be the guy that said...'i just wanna make a phone call. who needs a smart phone?'. my buddy's wife has an android phone on T-Mobile and she's had a very frustrating time with it...repeated trips back to the store to get it fixed, etc. the wife will likely be trading in her old analog phone for an iPhone later this year. still won't have a Mac but the iPhone is very cool.

I am an Apple owner. Never thought I would get one but am now a total convert. Bought a MAC about 7 years ago and still have it today. Not a single problem with the hardware or software in all that time. If you can get over the intial cost to transition to an APPLE computer, IMHO you will be very happy. As for the iPhone, not a fan......Still use a Blackberry..but mostly just personal preference.

I own iTunes software, that's about it. But if Motorola doesn't fix these annoying issues with its Droid Razr, I'll be getting an iPhone next time.

I'm in the 9% five or more category, probably in the 1% category with iPods, iPhones, iPads, MacBook Pros... I even still have the original 1984 Mac 128K, the original Powerbook Duo laptop and the original Newton.

Nor mine - PC's, Blackberry, Android tabled and Droid phone, yes. Can't stand Apple products - I like more flexibility.

PCs and MACs are both a pain in the butt.

I use both for engineering work and they both have their issues...neither is perfect.

I just bought an iPod touch- neat little gadget. Installed Talkatone, and can make phone calls for free on it (via wifi), can use it to process credit cards, talk and text, email, etc. Once I fired up iTunes on my Win7 VM, it sync'd with my old iPad.
I might even listen to music

I must admit I am being seduced by Apple, enough that I might buy in to the whole Apple ecosystem, and spring for a Mac (maybe a Macbook Air).

Came from the PC world. Made fun of MACs and Apple people for decades. Now on our second round of iPhones, DW has an iPad. Next laptop will probably be a Macbook. Kool-Aid ain't that bad. Been to an Apple store lately? There is one at the Altamonte Mall (FL). Where I park, you walk through a huge Barnes and Noble Bookstore to get to the Apple Store. There is always twice as many people in the Apple Store as in the book store.
