My wife is now Attending the University of Connecticut. Why are Apple Macs so popular with college students? I don't know of anyone else or other group of people who uses them. Most places of employment use Windows based PC. I've personally never used a Mac, so i cant judge or say if i like or hate them or not, but i just don't see what makes them popular in college.

I have a PC, Windows based laptops, an iMac and a Macbook Pro
MAC Positive: The OS X is rock solid, no where near as prone to viruses or spyware unlike Windows, and you get an awful lot of software that you actually use pre-installed on a MAC unlike the garbage you get bundled with on a PC
MAC Negative: Having bought myself an external drive to back-up files I learned the hard way that MAC's cannot write to an NTFS file system. Meaning I can't just drag and drop files from my MAC on to it. I need NTFS since FAT32 cannot handle file sizes larger than 4GB. So I'm left with a drive I can only use on my PC and will have to buy another drive and format it to HFS+ especially for my MAC I can't be bothered with partitions

I'm not pushing a Windows PC over a Mac but the only reason that Macs don't have virus problems is that the virus creators don't want to waste their time writing viruses for an operating system that has such a small market share.

The opposite ( Mac OS-X and Windows on a Windows PC) can be done but it is not easy and tends to be buggy.

Unix started as a multi-user university platform and arguably is more secure with 25 years of development.
