I love my Mac - so I was amused to read some people arguing that Macs are an essential tool for those who care about productivity.
First, let's listen to (Uncle) Mark Hurst:
Without question, buy a Mac – unless you must be compatible with a Windows network at work or school. ...And then there's the dialogue between Guy Kawasaki and David Allen at David's recent GTD Global Summit, as reported by Chris Blatnick:
Now, for everyone else: buy a Mac. There are two main reasons to make this choice. First Macs are easier to use. The whole point of using a computer is to get things done. Given the choice between getting your work done more or less easily, why would you choose the harder option? This has always puzzled me about people choosing Windows PCs – why would they choose to be less productive?
Guy told David, "I don't see how anyone that thinks they are going to get things done uses Windows."And them there's Lauren, who also writes about Moving to Macs for Productivity (and Prettiness).
Yes, I'm sure some of you are very productive on your PCs. But I'm just reporting on what I've been reading - and I haven't found people arguing that PCs make you more productive than Macs do.
