I bought an iPad, but I have a blackberry bold touch. I never wanted an iPhone, but the easy apple way has made me stop talking so much crap about the iPhone! Still love my berry, but if the iPhone 5 blows the socks off everyone I might jump ship. I love how every apple item syncs automatically, soon I think I will get a MacBook (but keep my berry)

Anyway, this summer my laptop died, so I bit the bullet and bought a MacBook Pro, and have been loving it ever since. To finish the process, I received my iPad as a Christmas present.
I guess it's official

As for changing over from PC, I don't feel the need to do that. In 2000, it was still a big deal to be on Mac vs. PC. I feel like there's so much more compatibility now between the two, that I don't need my computer to be the same as my mobile devices. My PC runs iTunes just fine, and I use it for much different things anyway, like word processing or burning CD's.
BlackBerry and Android users love to slam Apple (for very different reasons), but I feel like it's a combination of sour grapes and everyone hating on the popular girl in school. This past year with what they've done with iCloud and purchased items just gives you so much more value and security in your purchases. Obviously, Android has SOME advantages, but when you look at what the whole ecosystem offers and the naysayers complain that you "can't make a weather widget", it just sounds pretty foolish.

I have also gone from a BlackBerry and Windows PC to "all things Apple". My only issue with iPhone is missing my BerryWeather. My only adjustment issues with Macbook is my Microsoft Office and Adobe Web Premium Suite. I know I can buy Mac versions but why spend money when you already have them. I know I can partition the drive and run Windows but I'm afraid it will slow it down. I've bought Fusion 4 so I will probably go ahead and partition since I can always start over.

Fully converted Apple fanboy now since my purchase of my iPad 2 back on 12/9/11. I knew it would only be a matter of time before claiming and iPhone after navigating the most fluid OS on the market. So far I'm 2 weeks into my new iPhone 4S.
Gonna Apple-ize everything in my home. Next up is the AppleTV or a MacBook Air. But currently there are 2 iPhones (a 4 and a 4S), a 2010 Mac Mini, and an iPad 2 in my home. Best purchases ever.

My first post here and look forward to the fun!
Anyone have any chocolate because I'm getting anxious? Or Jamison maybe?

CTFU @ gateway drug but ITA. I said, I would NEVER own an iPhone b/c it was too small. Well my first Apple drug was an iPod Classic then a MacBook Pro (13 inch; 4GB...3/2011). I was hooked and had to have everything on the same OS. I purchased my first iPhone (4S; 32GB--10/2011) and the iPad 2 (64 GB; wi-fi/3GB...last week). My 5 yr old loves Apple products, her first gateway drug is the iPod Touch 4G ...(2/2012). I've converted three co-workers. I'm truly an Apple Fangirl...I "try" not to look down on any other brands or offend others that unfortunately use other brands. LOL.

from an iPod Classic to the original iPhone and on. I now own an iP4s, my wife an iP4, we share an iPad 2 and my daughter has an iPod touch. the only thing keeping me from converting my laptop to an Apple is it is literally hard to kill a toughbook. My Laptop still has a floppy drive built in and it just will not die.

Another Blackberry Addict converted to Apple via Android here too. I was a Blackberry fanatic (Curve 8310 and Bold 9000). I bought the original Ipad in November 2010 and an Iphone4 for my wife's birthday, then in Feb 2010 bought the Atrix4 (Android) for myself. I also bought an Ipad for myself, and immediately started regretting the purchase of the Atrix4.
Bought the Iphone 4s last month and very happy with the purchase.
Our house currently has two Iphone4's, one Iphone 4S, one original Ipad, one Ipad2, one Ipad(New, 3), two Apple laptops, one Apple desktop, and two Apple TVs.
All running wireless with ATT. Also have the wireless ATT Uverse DVR and 2 HP wireless printers. I guess the only thing missing is a huge sign in the front yard with the Apple logo on it.
