I have a mac but mainly because I do lots of video and photo editing.

I have no issue running either operation system, but I do prefer mac OS.

I have a MacBookPro 15" loaded (late 2011 version) and a 24" iMac loaded as well (late 2010 version).

Love Macs and have always used them (since elementary school). I actually have Parallels loaded on my laptop for some Windows stuff I need, but I really don't like using Windows at all...

I actually have a BlackBerry as my phone, but I have an iPad. I'll probably be getting the iPhone5 when it drops though... at least to hold off until BB10 if that even ever materializes.

Also, not to be a back-seat mod or anything, but there are sections for this in the Off-Topic forums...

PC. Apple has a great design style, and good quality. But their company philosophy is questionable at best, not to mention the amount of litigation for patents that the company deals with.

Also

*sigh* i hate to reply to this thread because nobody will win.

bmw itself favors apple and is further developing the vehicles functionality to be compatible with apple products so that should somewhat answer your question.

personally, i really don't care for apple and think they're making a bad move. i dislike apple enough that it almost pushed me away from bmw. i won't say anything more than that because it'll turn into a flame war.

then again, what do i know, imma linux dork.

ps- debating this site http://appledouchebags.com/
