Default How many have a Mac? - 01-12-2010, 09:01 AM

I have been a Mac user for 10 years, and I've never bothered with anything else than Mac since I switched (over from the dark side...).

I am just curious about how many in this forum have a Mac and also bought a Dell Mini10V to install OSX on it?

Like me!

Been using Macs for longer than I care to remember. Main reason I got a Mini 9 was because of the possibility of installing OSX on it.

I have 3 Macs in the family and now a 10v which I don't have to be too precious about when traveling. Last year traveling South America I took a MacBook Air, at £900 I spent too much time worrying about it, now I'm heading for India with my 10v. I wonder what Apple will announce on the iTablet, a MacNetBookPro...whatever it will not be as cheap as a Dell 9 or 10v, my guess is £500+ for a device with a cut down system...I could be wrong though.

My Mini is the first Mac that I've ever used. I got the 10v specifically to put OS X on it and see what I was missing. It's nice but I'm not convinced that my next laptop purchase is going to be a "real" Mac.

I've had a Mac Mini since just before Tiger came out. As soon as I was ready for a new laptop I got myself a 2.4ghz MBP as soon as they were released, which I've been using as my main laptop since. If apple had of released something similar size to the mini10v I'd have probably gone with that but as it is they didn't and that laptop does everything I need it to.

Great for using Traktor on with a midi controller, portable decks which fit in a laptop bag great to taking to parties.

Default Too many computers.... - 01-12-2010, 06:54 PM

For a family of 5 we have:

1 Mini 9 OSX
2 Mini 10v OSX
1 Apple Powerbook G4 (getting slow, used less and less now with minis around)
1 Apple ibook G4 (needing repair, probably never will be)
1 HP Laptop Win 7 (truly excellent machine)
2 Dell Desktop Quad Core both Win 7
1 HP Desktop Dual Core win7
2 Old desktops running Win XP boxed up waiting around for me to reuse them at some stage.
plus a work HP laptop running XP (rarely used)

So way too many machines but love them all.

Yep, I have (3) Macs - a G4 tower, a 2006 MBP and a 2007 MB. I bought the Mini for the sole purpose of having a small, light apple OS laptop for carrying around airports and what-not. The MBP and MB are just too heavy for long-haul and carting around at the other end. The mini 10v is bloody brilliant in this role.
Not that I won't buy an Air if I ever get the chance - I really want the Chinese input features added to Snow Leopard on the new tracpads, and it weighs pretty much the same as the Dell. For now though I am happy with what I have got
