Apple products are becoming popular here in China. Recently I had an orientation show in the Apple shop, and was really amazed by the fancy products from computer, ipad, iphone, etc. If I need to replace my computer, would you suggest to buy an Apple?

I will not buy an Apple computer. First, everything concerns about Apple products are crazy expensive and I don't like it at all. Second, I am familiar with Windows operating system and I don't want to adjust to a new operating system. Apple has its own operating system. I love China

Apple systems now will run the windows applications now so the learning curve has dropped. Most of the software builders now build their software to be used on all systems.

You are right. Apple has changed its supplier to fit the issue. Thanks for yr information, but I wonder if Apple will provide adequate service for the shift. Thanks anyway.

A lot of people that I know are moving on up to Apple systems, they are faster and more reliable than the run of the mill systems. They are really good with high graphics programs but I still like the windows based systems as they are more readily available. They are more expensive than the windows systems. I am unfamiliar with Linux systems so can't compare them.

Thanks for your response. The Apple products are really appealing in the show room. The IPad2 has become my grandson's toy during the weekends. Maybe I will buy one for his 10 year old birthday.

If you're buying a PC, I wouldn't recommend buying a product from Apple like the iMac for example. They're way too expensive and you could get a better PC for the same price or even lower. And everything that a Mac can do a PC can do too, maybe even better. (this is especially true for gaming) If however you're looking for a mobile PC like a netbook, something that will allow you to do some simple computing on the move like surfing the internet, checking your e-mails and maybe consuming some media like videos and music, then the MacBook Air is the way to go. It truly is really great for those tasks, plus it's very stylish and beautiful (both in hardware and software). Just don't expect to do heavy duty computing with it, but it's actually quite fast. And if you're looking for a smartphone? Then there's no question buddy, it's Apple all the way. Their iPhone is unrivaled because of the massive amount of apps available for their platform, and their great software and hardware integration makes for a very smooth and cohesive experience that you're unlikely to get from other platforms like Android or Windows Phone.

Hello zhuhuifen, I think apple had a good brand image and popular in my country indonesia. But ussualy the price so expensive, so we choose according to our financial. Aple is for high end. Ussually I choose other brand like acer, toshiba, hp. Sometime I choose local brand. It depend on application. For critical application use robust computer to minimized problem. But for simple application use common brand or local brand. If you choose aple you have a prestige and good product. It depend you financial.

Yes, yes, and yes. They are so resilient and last so much longer than a PC. They do cost a little more but the benefits outweigh that. I don't have one, but when I do buy one, it will be the next one I buy. My b/f's mom has one and she doesn't have to worry about virus protection or anything like that.

I would say go for the Apple computer. Every other product in the market is either outdated or being built around the Apple technology.
