Mac vs. PC Smackdown

I'm in the market for a new computer. Some things I know: It's definitely going to be a high-end laptop. The surprise is that I'm actually considering moving to a Mac. I've done a fair amount of research and--surprisingly--found a number of other PC users who've made the switch. Their reasons mirror mine: I'm sick and tired of babysitting my computer. I hate dealing with compatability issues with software and hardware. I hate being part of a monopolistic monster. The list goes on and on.

On the other hand. All of my software is PC-based. My friend Tony is the best PC helpdesk you could ask for. I haven't used a Mac in 15 years. It's much more expensive. Blah, blah, blah.

But perhaps the real reason I'm considering buying a Mac is that I want to cause trouble. That's T.R.O.U.B.L.E.

Big time.

I want all my PC friends to cry and all my Mac friends to fawn. I want to be the evil soap opera star pulling the strings. Can you hear my evil laugh? Can you?

Decisions, decisions.

Yeah, I'm sure getting a mac will solve all your problems, like it did for these guys.

Too much thermal grease? Makes sense, I guess. I always get too hot when I use too much thermal grease.
