I finally dicdeed to switch from windows to mac. I've found the switch to be somewhat bittersweet and expensive. Only a couple pieces of software I used was compatible for mac OS X. I find myself switching back and forth from windows 7 (bootcamp) to lion. Some specific problems: Printer drivers and compatible printers good luck. User interface is more difficult to use than windows. The keyboard lacks page up, page down, delete (as used on widows based keyboards). The money trap commonly associated with Apple products have to repurchase software have to buy add on adapters to use with peripherals (HDMI, VGA, etc.). Some specific pros: The smooth operation between applications. I have not found much waiting at all for large memory based programs or multiple programs running simultaneously. Internet surfing in Safari is neat with the gestures done on the trackpad. The keyboard, while lacking keys I've used for years, is super easy to type on (I think I've been able to type about 10 more words per minute at least). Battery charges fast and lasts long. Screen is nice resolution, glass, hinges, etc. I think I will eventually come around, but the transition has not been as smooth as I thought it would be. Hey, I can't afford to go back now!
