    Sounds like 46% of them like to toss cash in the toilet. Are these the same companies that buy back stock as they top out? Although I own 2 macs I will never say they are worth the extra cash

    Macs don't need tech support, they may render obsolete the IT department.

    Love my mac, love the rest of my apple products. But excel is on mac is not good, i bet because of MSFT. Most good/hardcore excel users could careless about the GUI interface even MSFT has adopted. its all about keyboard shortcuts.
