Vista using considering moving to Mac - How much new software needed?
Posted on 2007-11-27
I'm so fed up with Windows, Toshiba, Vista, etc.
I'm thinking about moving to Apple/Mac. Consumer reviews are so good for Apple and declining for everyone else - according to PCMag.
I'm a web developer and need to use Dreamweaver, Photoshop. I'm very used to MS Office - Outlook and Excel.
I'm just trying to figure out how much new software I'll have to buy to make the switch.
Anyone know if we can upgrade or get discounts if we need to purchase new versions of Adobe Creative Suite CS3, MS Office 2007 ... not to mention all the other software like RoboForm, CuteFTP, Quicken, etc. etc.
Anyone gone through this already? Was it worth it? Anyone know of a web site that walks people through this process?
Apple's commercials look so great ... but they never talk about all the additional software necessary. Gosh, it almost puts it out of reach to switch from Windows to Mac.
I'm interested in what you experts think.
