Meh. Scrivener belongs on a Mac.

Till the quoted part you sounded reasonable, too sad that you ruined it with a typical fanboy argument on the last meters.

Five Steps from Mac to MS? Bah. Are we really back to "Mac vs PC" time again? For the love of baud, own both.

No really valid arguments.

Yeah, hardware-wise, Macs are arguably more expensive - but take into account software and it evens out pretty fast...most all the software you need on a Mac is cheap or free.

Upgradability? Don't buy a flipping laptop and then complain that they're too hard to upgrade. With the exception of hardcore gear geeks, most laptops are a pain in the ass to upgrade beyond memory.

No ergonomic keyboard? It's a laptop.

Games. Yeah - Steve Jobs hates games. This doesn't really belong in a list of reasons to change from a Mac to a PC - if you want to play a lot of games well on your ONE machine, then just say "I'm getting a Windows machine so I can play games" and stop with the silly lists.

And Scrivener. Scrivener alone is enough of a reason to own a Mac if you're a writer. Yeah, there's a beta for Windows. Meh. Scrivener belongs on a Mac.
