Before I became an online professional poker player (and therefore before PS/FTP worked on Macs, though that's not too relevant for me anyways), I owned a Powerbook (Mac laptop). I loved it. It hurt me to sell it in order to buy a Dell Inspiron laptop, but I needed it to play online. At any rate, money isn't an issue now, and I bought a MBP around 6-8 months ago. Boy, did I miss OSX. I forgot how easy the Operation System was to use. The main reason I love my Macbook Pro is because it's so light and thin - therefore it's incredibly easy to travel with. When you spend the kind of time in an airport that I do, it's really nice not having the haul around a heavy laptop. It's perfect for traveling, and it's my main media hub. It works great with my iPods (all 4 of them!), iPhone, and PS and FTP now run natively on OSX, so if I feel like playing the Sunday Million on the road, I can. But for the most part, I don't play much online poker when I'm on the road. Although with most Windows machines I have had some issues (crashes, etc), the most recent Dell
I've purchased hasn't given me too much trouble, though. The main reason why Mac's are becoming so popular is because their operating system is truly years ahead of Windows Vista, not to mention they look pretty stylish. They're really easy to use and for the average user, that's really all they want. Not everyone knows how to setup (and maintain) an anti-vrius program, and they're nearly non-existent on Mac's. I still use my Dell along with the 30in/20in monitor setup as my "workstation
", but when I'm not playing poker I'm probably on my Mac.
