As you will see, when someone buys a mac, they stay with mac
. They know that paying a little more will take you alot farther and In the long run even be cheaper. There Is so much more you can do and so much you don't have to deal with like virus', buggy windows, and crashing computers that loose all the data you haven't saved yet. If your woried about the money the mac mini Is a great way to easy yourself Into the mac world but you shouldent have trouble, the mac Is much more user friendly.
I would recomend buying a mac to everyone, look around, the world Is switching.http://www.apple.com/macmini/
