    Apple sounds like good products, maybe when I have the money. Right now its 10 dollar prepaid phones until Cricket is ready to be reasonable about the bill.

    If your concern is logging into a company web site. It's your browser not your operating system that's running. To my knowledge any browser works on any OS. Mac-PC-Lenux: Enternet Explorer, Chrome, Fire Fox etc. If your only interested in web browsing buy any machine- laptop, tablet, net book with a decent processor for speed. Choose a browser- IE, Chrome,Fire Fox,Mozella etc and then go on line. What brand your computer is wont effect web surfing. (Except the whole Flash vs. HTML5 thing which should be a non issue soon- Heehee

    I just picked up a MacBook Pro 13" from BB along with a Vzw hotspot, they knocked $200 off the price of the laptop which was already on sale for $60 off, so I got the $1199 laptop and the hotspot for $1050 out the door after tax. Pretty good deal and I am also an Apple fan, have had every iPhone since the 2g, iPods, and an iMac24" for home use. I had planned on getting the 15" or 17" but for the bunk in a truck the 13" is plenty, and it's still a bigger screen than an iPad.

    Yeah, that was just my lame attempt at iOS humor. Hoping the new iPhone is going to be made out of that new "liquid metal" so if ya drop it, it will literally bounce-not break. Otherwise, I'm not going to upgrade from my 4 cuz Suri sux (beta ya know) and other than .01" larger screen. Why?

    If your worried about OS compatibility, you can install windows on any Intel Mac, with bootcamp. Then you would have both OSs on one computer.

    I popped in just to see how the debate was going and figured I'd see a pile of anti-Apple posts. From what I've seen so far, I have to say :

    I too have to cast my vote for Mac though price-wise if you're short on cash, then yea, a Windows PC will do.

    That's like saying "blue cars are slow." It depends on the PC. Just sayin.
