Is moving from a PC to an Imac a good idea or not?
11 months ago

I have found some great information in this forum when I posted a question about moving files from a PC to an Imac.  Now I am going to purchase a new computer right after Christmas, and am still not sure if I will be getting an Imac or a new PC.  My monitor seems to be dying so I will need to replace it even if I were to purchase a new PC.  When I look at pricing, getting a new workstation and a new monitor will bring the cost to being more than an Imac.  So would you who have moved from a PC to Apple do it again, knowing what they know now?  I posted the same question in PC talk to find out about people who have moved from Apple to a PC.

I have an Apple store down the street and that has been a great help at seeing the products.  The 21.5 Imac is about the same size as my HP 20" monitor.

I shoot a lot of street.  I was a CAD designer for around 20 years and worked on a drafting board before that.  I like my PC, but they do have problems, viruses, etc.  I have a friend who had a Mac for maybe 15 years and never had a problem.  My main usage is LR and most of my photos are on external drives.
