    Excellent, I hope you will include a guide about how to change exam boards too, and a list of online testing exam boards that are Mac friendly - so far all the online testing GSCE I've seen is: *install windows*

    If you shop around you can get PC cases as nice, if not nicer than apple, and at a fraction of the cost

    whole lot of expenditure for very little gain as far as I am concerned but i guess its chacun a son gout as they say somewhere in france. Its a case of like them or not, they look neat and snazzy are good at media and graphics which i guess is the intended market area. As far as schools are concerned i would always stick with pcs but have a mac suite as well. We had one at the previous school and just used smb to connect to the network and that was sufficient.

    I can't see what a mac can do that a pc can't these days.

    You could say aswell you can't see what a pc can do that a mac can do. Oh yeh i can you can have both operating systems on a Mac with ease.

    We could go all day with the pros and cons of both.

    Use a Mac for a while and your likley to be converted I certainly was. I'm not always sure i could justify the price diferance for a school. However IMac's arent that expensive now especialy with edu priceing.
