    Right now, if I wanted a new computer I'd get a Mac. I love Windows PC's but I really hate 8. Unless they make 9 like 7, I'll never be moving up with them.

    Samsung is horrible with their phone customer service. Quality control is a joke.

    Dell, oh gee wiz. That manufacturer spits out so much junk it's hard to imagine myself going for it.

    Lenovo makes some tough laptops. I'll give them that.

    Acer, not bad but not my cup of tea.

    HP, I like some of their stuff but sometimes they cut corners where they shouldn't. As for Compaq, that's the corner they should of cut.

    Biggest thing I've noticed with Apple? They might not have the most trendiest hardware or software but they stand 100% behind their products.

    I had to answer the same question 5 times for a rep from Samsung. Then they just say, "Thank you for the information. Please hold while I check your device information."

    Listen ... The only people who hate Macs are the ones who can't afford them.

    Hate is a strong word to use here. Hate is derivative of fear.

    Dell are releasing a similarly priced AIO PC, the Optiplex 3030.

    Quad core i5 clocked at 3.3GHz
    Radeon R5
    Only 4 gigs of ram though.

    I wouldn't say so. I can't afford one and I love them. Im on the fence actually between a surface 3 or a macbook pro. Both cost me the same with my friends and family discounts on top of my edumacation discounts. Still can't afford either. The iMac I'm using is my mothers. Maybe If i stop buying every new Blackberry and iPhone ill be able to buy both.

    My issue is that they've changed the way drivers work in Windows 8. I have massively struggled with our work computer to make it compatible with all the hardware devices.

    My problem with getting a Mac would be that it's too simple. Like my adjustment to having no back button on my iPhone. That took some work on my part.

    My experience of W8 and 8.1 has been that drivers are not a problem. I can clean install and everything works, not even a NIC driver was necessary, never mind chipset etc., so am curious to know what your problems were.

    It's a well known issue where the print spooler won't start automatically due to the dependencies conflicting with other programs/drivers.

    That and getting legacy drivers. Running compatibility mode isn't hard, it's just hard to find!

    Thank goodness I knew commands. If not for:

    Services.msc
    Regedit
    C:/Windows/System32/Spool/PRINTERS
    Devmgmt.msc

    I'd have been struggling to find all these things. Windows 8 is a cluster of sheer confusion for me...

    Add that to the dependency of Windows firewall and McAfee firewall. Had to remove McAfee and took me a while to figure out how to change the administrator on Windows Firewall to get it started again. 😩😱😣😖😒

    Har har, it took me forever to work up the financial discipline to save for a Mac but it was so worth it! As a side effect, after getting a taste of how much more comforting having a bit of a nest egg was, I'm much better at saving money now then I was when I first got out of college.

    I can afford one but honestly, I'm pretty certain the Surface 3 is a better buy in every regard.

    It runs windows. So, no.
