I've been using PCs since 1991 and I'm completely fed up with the crap they constantly dish out. Problems upon problems - forever! A friend of mine bought a Mac and said it's brilliant and it can't even get a virus from the internet. My problem is, I wouldn't even know where to buy one! Of course, I'm sure I'm about to find out... but certainly Macs don't seem as popular in the average local high street. Ideally, I need to go second hand to allow enough for software, as all of the stuff I have is Windows based. Was wondering about checking Ebay for a machine. The thing is - being a PC user, I don't have much idea about the specs Mac offers. What would I expect to pay for one which is roughly equal to my Windows XP machine and have decent graphics and sound? It doesn't necessarily need to be brand new. I figured that with a slightly older machine I wouldn't notice it's shortfalls, if I am not used to the highest spec of today. With a PC it's easy to build one on the cheap and I can do that but I feel I need something more reliable and trouble-free and everywhere I go, I keep hearing good things about them while I hear people constantly complaining about the performance and errors on their PCs. I don't need something 'up to the minute' just something which works better than my Athlon Windows XP machine, which is totally rubbish. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
