I want a MAC

Has anyone else upgraded to Windows 7??  Have you noticed any 'issues'?  I don't like 'issues'.  And we've had a few.  The one that really had me up in arms was with the Microsoft picture viewer.  If you have upgraded to Windows 7 and use the Microsoft picture viewer have you realized that you may be missing some pictures???  Any pictures that get 'flipped' then 'disappear'.  Annoying to say the very least.  I was so upset and grumpy when I discovered it that I couldn't concentrate on anything.  Called hubby.  Of course he couldn't do anything when he was at work and I was having the problem here.  He'd never heard of it.  Said he'd look at it when he got home.  BUT.  I've never been too great at waiting when I'm wanting something done NOW.  So I stewed for awhile, tried to do some sewing, didn't like what I created, stewed some more, tried to do some cleaning up, kept stewing....
Finally I turned to google for help.  Duh.  If you have a computer problem most likely, so does someone else.  Usually quite a few someone elses.  And there I found my solution.  A code to put in that would return my pics which were actually just 'hidden' not 'missing'.  Which was a good thing since I had looked EVERYWHERE for them and they were not to be found.  And a little further research dug up this:  it's McAffee causing it.  Haven't proved that yet, but our new computer DID come with a free 6 months of McAffee.  It's getting itself uninstalled pronto.  Not going to deal with it - it's history.  Don't mess with me and my pictures!!
And so.  My mind is made up.  MY LAPTOP WILL BE A MAC.

I think a Mac would be very fun to try. Almost everything I've ever read about them is good.

We switched to an iMac a few months ago and absolutely LOVE it! Not only is the 27 inch beautiful, its quiet, its fast, and it works! My only 'problem' is that Electric Quilt doesn't come in Mac format. But I've decided to switch to QuiltPro. I know my Mac can read and use PC programs with a specific installed program - but why have a Mac if you're going to use PC programs?
