Re: PC or Mac (laptop purchase)?

    I have just spent several days cleaning off viruses and spyware from our
    secretary's PC. If you want to do a lot of editing and stuff like that, you may
    want to consider a Mac desktop rather than a notebook. Although I haven't
    heard of a lot of people losing their desktop Mac, I have heard of people
    wearing out the laptop when they do a lot of power intensive stuff. However the
    new ones may be better. Use a laptop (either PC or Mac) if you need portability.
    Get a desktop if you don't.
