My wife wants an apple laptop instead of a normal one?

Whats the difference?

  Pamy 12:49 09 Apr 2009

Apple operating system instead of Microsoft. Les software available. Posibly mor expensive

  noel_courtney 12:51 09 Apr 2009

Is there a difference between apple and Linux

  Pamy 12:54 09 Apr 2009

Yes of course, Linux is another operating Ststem

  noel_courtney 12:57 09 Apr 2009

lol no I mean does an apple computer run on linux, windows or is Apple a completely separate O?S from these two?

Macs are widely used by the media and by computer designers (as in designers who use computers, not designers who design computers!). In my son's experience they are less prone to crashes and the general nonsense that seems to happen to some PCs. At present, there are far fewer viruses aimed at Macs, so less risk of infection. Considerably more expensive for the same sort of spec, though.

If I could afford the luxury of another laptop, I would have liked to try out an Apple.

Tried Apple didn't like it, though for anyone involved in any form of CAD or graphic design there is simply nothing to touch it.
