Where's the "I was fed up with my PC" option?

Five years ago, I had a choice to go PC or Mac. Why did I choose Mac?

A. I get frustrated very easily and have a short fuse so a Windows machine may not have been a good choice, especially for those who live beneath my windows.
B. The Windows' machine would be more expensive in the long-run because it would have needed to be upgraded on a yearly basis for all of the great games available in the Wintel world.
C. Macs are a lot cooler than Windows' machines and I liked the look.
D. No real Mac games so my productivity would be much higher.
E. I already paid for some Mac software and I didn't want to buy them again.
F. I own AAPL stock so why not? (I also owned Dell stock at that time too...hehehe)

Going PC was very tempting though because of the all of the games available but I think that I made the right choice. But, those games!!! *sighhhhhh*

Because I was using it for University and didn't want Windows crashing on top of a major assignment.

Back in 2002 I was seriously thinking of switching to Mac, but went with a PC because I wanted to game. Two years later, I kicked my own @$$ for making that decision with numerous crashes, spyware, 15 XP reinstalls in a month, the final blow was when my main hard drive AND backup crashed, so I lost years and years of photos which I'll never ever get back. First switched my gf at the time to Mac in March 2005, then myself in July 2005, and never looked back.

I have never owned or even worked on anything thing else other than a Mac. That includes home and professional environment. Our office has 1 PC that is used for payroll and I am not in charge of that department.

Once a Mac, always a Mac...in fact, obsessed with anything that has an Apple logo on it.

Loved the Mac, worked for the company...still my favourite!
