Why I’m sticking with the Mac
For this Mac developer, the desktop is still central

Three years ago, I had never even held a touchscreen computer. Today I carry one everywhere I go. Apple changed the mobile phone industry with the launch of the iPhone, and appears to be creating a similar sensation with the iPad. Now it’s doing everything it can to keep that momentum going, showering us with ads on television and elsewhere, singing the praises of their latest handheld, touch-driven devices.
Some interpret the relative silence of Mac marketing as a death knell for the platform. But while the iPad is many great things, it’s no Mac. Apple’s touch platforms excite me as a programmer, and inspire me to think about software in all kinds of new ways. I’m spending a lot of time and energy targeting these new products. But I’m also still committed to the Mac.
If you are a content producer or use your computer using productivity applications you will probably wand an iMAC or a Macbook.  A P.C. is not in the same ballpark.  Macs simply work better.  Even though they are somewhat more expensive you save money in headaches and usability.
