Top ten pros and cons of the Mac

Published June 13, 2008

Top five reasons the Mac is winning me over

  1. Installing things is too easy.
  2. Flickr Uploader is a thousand times better than on a PC.
  3. The Mac has approved software lists.
  4. I’m starting to get used to (and like) the fact that things are open without having an actual window open. It took a long time, but now I’m adjusted, it’s a plus.
  5. I can make enhanced podcasts.

Top five reasons it isn’t

  1. Office 2008 isn’t all it’s cracked up to be on the Mac.
  2. The @ key is in a different place. I don’t care who is right or wrong, but some standards wouldn’t go amiss. Switching from Mac to PC is a real pain.
  3. There’s no hash key (why the hell not?)
  4. I have to reformat my iPod.
  5. I can’t find any decent personal finance software. I’m sticking with what I’ve got on the PC.
