Macintosh Related:

As my user name indicates, I am a Macintosh enthusiast. I have a Power Macintosh G3 at home, and the Macintosh Web sites below have helped me to make the most of it:

Mac vs. PC
Looking for proof the the Macintosh is a better choice for your home, business or school than a PC running Windows? Then this site is for you. It provides studies backed by hard data showing that people tend to be more productive and less frustrated using a Mac for daily work and play, and that the Mac is a more reliable machine overall. It even provides some insight as to why school and business IT departments resist buying Macs (hint: think "job security"..)
