I got my sister (mac mini) and her fiance (powerbook) to switch to apple this year and they’re happy. Looks like this may be part of a bigger trend of users dumping their windows pc’s for macs.
No doubt Apple is experiencing an iPod "halo effect,"
whereby rising popularity of the digital-music player is reviving
interest in Apple’s other products.
But Windows users are also
moving to the Mac in increasing numbers for other reasons. Among them:
the perception that Mac users suffer less from the daily irritants of
viruses, spyware, and worms.
