PC and Mac for Xmas

by dirk1982diggler / January 13, 2007 10:35 AM PST

OK, I couldn't decide, so I got a PC (Dell)for my kids and an Imac for my wife and myself. Both with pretty much the same specs.(2.0 Core 2 Duo,upgraded video cards, productivity software...not real high end but
both are nice home systems) I've been using PC's for the last 15 years but I just wanted to try a Mac.
Bottom line....I took the Mac out of the box...ran the updates, and haven't looked back. The PC is nice too, but I have had to call tech support twice. Both times were for software issues (anti virus).
My only complaint with the Mac so far is the lack of software. So far, I've found some good programs to replace the Microsoft apps. but I can't seem to find a good home finance program for Mac.(Is Quicken for Mac really as bad as I'm reading?)Any Mac users have some suggestions?
