I've always used PCs. Except for a brief period when a software company I worked for used Macintoshes which I hated. They soon changed to PCs so I was happy again Now Gwen and I have a laptop each and I also have a desktop all running XP which is no longer supported by MS. We have both recently acquired iPads which we both love and never use the laptops anymore except for things like managing our photos because I haven't found software on the iPads (yet) that will do all the stuff that I want. The desktop I use mainly for maintaining some quite complex spreadsheets to manage investments and pension funds, and financial records for tax return purposes. There are interlinked spreadsheets and macros. I have a WD Mybookworld Network disk drive which stores all the spreadsheets, Word documents, our photos and a big music collection. All the PCs and the iPads access this shared drive. I am now wondering if it's time to ditch my MS prejudices and buy a Mac to replace the desktop and just get rid of the laptops. If I bite the bullet: A)what Mac should I go for (I know zilch about Macs) B) what problems am I likely to encounter in migrating? Advice gratefully received as serious effort (and money) could be involved!
