PC World published The Most Notable Notebooks of 2007, and I find the following quote is very interesting.
The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year is a Mac. Try that again: The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year–or for that matter, ever–is a Mac.
Scott Beale of Laughing Squid agrees with the review on PC World in his post PC World: Fastest Vista Laptop, An Apple MacBook Pro.
I have friends that run Macs, and they talk about performance and experience. Overall they seem happy with their systems. Most of my software investment is Windows oriented, so at this time it would be hard and expensive to start over at this point.
The PC World review sounds like a pretty positive to me. I know that when I am ready for my next machine, I will have to seriously consider a Mac. I am typically a Windows user, and do not have much Mac experience, but the cost is a little too much to buy a machine just to play with. Now that I know that the Mac has better performance running Windows Vista, I will reconsider purchasing a Mac. I can purchase a Mac and yet still run Windows Vista and all my Windows applications.
Is it time for Windows users to start purchasing Macs?
