My latest personal purchase was an eMac. I retired my old Pavilion to Linux file server status. My work laptop is from Dell running Windows. I'm happy will all of them, because they match their purposes.
At home I listen to music and play with my digital camera. The Mac is unbeatably strong here.
The converted HP Pavilion running Linux as a file and print server continues to deliver solid value.
My Dell laptop gives me the productivity apps that fit with the corporation for whom I work.
I will say this. If I were to start working for myself again, I would probably go the Mac route with a PowerBook including a purchase of Mac Office Pro, which will give me Office and a virtual XP machine for apps that only exist in that world.
I won't say that I haven't crashed my Mac, because I have, but it takes work. But the combination of BSD Linux stability, the Aqua interface, and the availability of Office and other 'standard' apps is unbeatable.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
