It’s the old argument about cost of ownership, you see. PCs are cheaper initially, but quite often the amount of time that you, or someone else, spend attempting to fix the problems actually adds a considerable amount of money “spent” on the machine. I have owned, since I bought my first computer in 1997, seven Apple Macs. The amount that I have spent on tech support amounts to £0.00p. Sure, I have spent some time tuning and fixing bits and pieces, but much of the time this was for my own pleasure as much as anything else.
Apologies for the lack of posting, I had some severe computer issues yesterday. The new Apple 10.5.2 upgrade broke my computer. Or, rather, it caused a conflict that meant that a large number of my most vital applications simply crashed on start up.
