iPhone, MacBookPro - I love it! Macs Rule!

Ok!  Here is one that I am sure will cause some controversy. 

I am a die hard APPLE fan!  I have been ever since my first MAC SE in 1987.  Actually before that using a girlfriend's Apple in 1984.

Since then I have had an Apple II, the first PowerBook, the PowerComputing Apple Clone (short lived), a G3, G4, Clamshell Mac Laptop, PowerBook G4, Desktop G5, and now a 17" MacBook Pro running both Windows XP and MacOSX Leopard effortlessly at the same time.

Now I do graphic work and wouldn't dream of doing it on a WinTel PC, and I do have to use Windows for things like Point, but everything else is just better on a Mac.  2 Computers in one & more powerful than both combined!  Well worth the price.

iLove my iPhone too!  My only complaint is the battery life.  So I have slightly adjusted my use and have it plugged in to my laptop when ever I am on it.  It is always synced, and always charged.  And it integrates with my Gmail, Mac Mail (MeMail), Yahoo, MS Messenger Live, Outlook, online and hardline syncing with all calendars, and it has the best browser any phone could ask for...and, for that matter, many computers could ask for.

The best of all...I can blog right from my phone with a simple one touch process.  Check my iPhone blog at www.tadaco.com.

I am torn between the Iphone and a Treo. Any feedback on your experience?

I have always worked on Windows based PC's.  I have never used an Apple computer.  However, I did buy the new IPhone 3G and I love it!  Of course, I bought one of the first Ipods in 2001 or 2002......and still use it today!

My first Mac was a MacPlus, with 1 400k floppy disk, 500K of ram (that's not a misprint) which I upgraded to an entire 1MB of ram!!  It had a 10MB hard disk (way more hard drive than I'd ever be able to fill), a 300 dpi laser printer and a 300 dpi black and white line are scanner)... state of the art, and cutting edge!!

I don't currently have an iphone, only because we don't get ATT reception in our office.  If they would open up the phone for sprint, I'd be on board in a nanosecond.

Alan,  my SE was like that too...virtually no internal memory...I remember spending an endless amount of time switching out floppy disks just to get something done...ahhh memories!

Betina,  I was a Palm Pilot fanatic back in the day!  I wanted to go Treo when they first came out.  The feedback I got was that they freeze a lot.  Since they have upgraded their operating system I hear they are better, but they are light years away from the security and functionality of a Blackberry!

I was a Blackberry user until the iPhone G3 came out.  I wanted the push email and other functionality that was not offered in the original iPhone.  Your real choice should be between an iPhone and a Blackberry...either the Blackberry Bold or the new Pearl Flip (I think it is the 8220).  I loved my Pearl!  But it was stolen and I am a Mac fan and it was the push I needed to snag the new G3.

My vote:  iPhone.
