Why a Mac? Why now?

I didn’t really ever think I would be here. For years I have looked on as many of my friends and colleagues turned toward Apple for something better in a computer but I was scared. I thought that switching at this point would derail me for too long and set me back and as I design interfaces for web applications and sites, I thought that was a risk I couldn’t afford. But when it came time to purchase laptops for our new business, my partners and I were eventually drawn to the MacBook Pro for reasons that made sense for us technically.

For a long time I believed the primary draw of Apple’s computers was the shear sex appeal of the hardware. They look good, feel good, and are designed with fore site and elegance in mind. But form enough wasn’t enough to warrant the higher price tag and potential learning curve issues.
