My brother has a Mac. It's a something-or-other-with-high-end-thingies-and-stuff Mac, to be specific. Anyhow, I have a friend who after years and years and years of being a PC Windows/Linux guy got a Mac and never looked back. In fact, he then proceeded to get a few more Macs.
Their experiences and my needs for my next machine have caused me to think seriously about getting a Mac. Then I read this article and thought that was interesting because I want to create and produce things. If Apple really is focusing on that segment of the market, then I should get a Mac.
