Subject: RE: BS: PC or Mac nicely, please!
I've used Macs since 1987 - starting with the old SE30 - and I now use a Mac Book Pro, bought last August. In all that time, I've had one hard drive failure - on the SE30 - and one CD drive failure. Not one virus. Not one worm or Trojan or any other nasty little thing lurking around. The Mac is great for playing music, and for writing music (for which I use Harmony Assistant). I also can use Garageband (comes free with the OS) for recording music. I can create reasonably intelligent HD movies with iMovie (comes free with the OS) and surround them with arty software to burn as an independent DVD with iDVD (comes free withe the OS).

The graphics are great - the machine is superbly designed. More expensive than an equivalent PC - but all the things I've listed above make it worth it for me.
