What Kind of Computer(s) do you have?

Quote from LOL!
So what makes an Apple wonderful? I think it has to do with religion more than performance, ease of use, and price.


Our Computers (2 notebooks and 1 desktop) are PC Orthodox -They attend The Church in the Dell.

Re: What's Your Computer's Religion?

Dell customer service: "Dell hath no fury like a customer scorned..."

Written on the Gateway to Dell: "Abandon all hope ye who enter here..."

Big Box electronic store: "The devil is in the retails..."

Windows security: "Hole-ier than thou..."

Dell from Hell. Actually it hauls a$$. I can't complain other than the horrible customer service.

E-Machines with Windows XP loaded. Have replaced/repaired
everything since the purchase in 2001. Still, at $399
(after rebates), I'm not complaining.

Mac G4 and a no name brand PC. I use an A/B switch for one LCD monitor. The Mac is for work but I'll keep it when I leave.

Mac, I don't allow anything made by Bill Gates in the house.

Currently typing on my 12" PB, wife has a 12" iBook and we have an old G4 as a server in the back room for doing backups to and print server duty. All connected with wireless.

Yep. I'm a whiz at VisiCalc. But it did get a little slow after I upgraded to Windows 98 last month. Maybe I picked up a virus or some spyware...

You're getting way over my head with these exotic software applications. But I do play a mean game of Pong.
