Windows 7 seems great, but I think I might get a mac desktop. I don't know much about it and would greatly appreciate if some of you can let me know what the pros and cons are. Thank You

I've used a PC with Microsoft Windows for all of my computing time (more than 10 years now). So I have no direct experience of Mac's. However, I'd say a big pro would be that Macs are not prone to Internet virus's though I'm not sure if that's because there are not many virus's written for the Mac or if the Mac OS is resistant anyway. A con would be that Macs are more expensive than a PC of equivelant specification, so really it will come down to money in the end.

Hello Andy and welcome to my lot. I don't know I have been using a computer since 2000 and I wish I had got a Mac instead of the windows. It has been a mess but I have gotten windows XP to run the way I like it. I have heard that Mac's are a better choice on a computer show I used to watch. If you have dish or direct TV you can look on there, there used to be a show called call for help and the screen savers they are good ones to learn from. That is how I learned how to use the computer. Hope this helps you! Have a great day! And good luck on what ever you choose to buy!
