Gents,

Is it really worth it to purchase anything mac (i.e, iphone, ipod, mac book, etc) versus other brands?

I've always been a loyal Sony customers since day one.  Sony seems to be making most of the products that I like or they at least have a variety of products in competition with other companies.

Should I make a conversion to Mac/Apple?  They are so popular these years that make me think twice about purchasing another electronic item.

Thanks!  Opinions appreciated.

Had a PC all my life bought a macbookbro couple years ago Absolutely worth it. More costly but as far as computers go in my opinion cleaner OS and a better overall product.

Don't get a mac computer. The ipods and ipads are decent products for what they do. But don't let someone tell you that macs don't get viruses or pc's get way too many viruses and break down. You just have to get a good pc not a dell or hp..

When you buy an imac you're paying for the label kind of like sony which is also overpriced. Look at asus', acers, and msi's

I don't mind paying a little extra for something that doesn't break nearly as easy.

i own a mac and a pc, my main computer is ALWAYS a mac, macs never get viruses or systerm problems, thats worth its weight in the gold and justifies the extra expense, the fact they dont use flash and a couple of other things is a negative but overall I would never rely on a windows product

Hardware inside a Mac is the same exact hardware you can get in a PC, so it all comes down to if you want the little fruit logo on your machine or not and/or want a fancy aluminum casing.

From my experience, people will say they think a Mac is better because that's what they heard and because they bought and used a $300 bottom of the barrel windows box they got from Best Buy filled with bloatware.  For some reason, people ignore they cheaped out on the Windows box while spending a premium on an Apple product.  Marketing geniuses, those Apple folks.

exactly....if you're worried about viruses then download Safari (for windows) because that's the software Apple uses.

I like the Mac laptops, a lot. I've never bought one but owned almost every kind of PC laptop you can think of and always liked Apple laptops. The only reason I didn't buy a MacBook a year ago was lack of USB3.

The Iphone is alright, I prefer the Android phone just because there's a huge selection of them and you can get a fancier screen. The Ipad is just a silly, overpriced toy.

I used to be 100% against Macs.I recently converted from a PC to MacBook and a Blackberry to iPhone and it was the best decision I've ever made. 

I'm now a Mac person... Apple products just make sense!
