Having a Mac @ Queen's

Honestly, there aren't many Macs here. I know only 6 Mac users in my class of 160 (and most of us bring our laptops to class - it's basically a sea of Dells and Toshibas). That said, I have been approached by two students who are thinking of switching to Apple and others who say they would have bought a Mac if they were cheaper. Just to let you know, I have had zero problems with my Mac here at Queen's. Compatibility hasn't been an issue in years.

Here's an article about how American students are flocking to Apple computers.
In Tucson, at the University of Arizona's on-campus store, salesman Jeff Guba says Apple sales are way up from last year, when 4 of 10 computers sold were Macs. This year, it's 6 of 10.
And here's an article (the #1 most popular on yahoo.com today) on the latest virus threat to Windoze.

YAY! Mac!! I fully plan to take a Mac to law school, despite the naysayers.

How strange. There are dozens of Macs at UBC - and since school started I've seen that people who initially didn't have laptops tend to be buying Macs, not PCs.
