What I’ve known for years and been practicing at IBM for over two months now: you’re more productive with a Mac.
I converted here at IBM for the same reasons stated in the article. I spent too much time restarting, it looked cheap, and I just didn’t get as much work done. I used to start my XP machine at my desk every day, and then go talk to my cube neighbors while it booted. Now, I can’t do that. I open the Mac, and it’s ready to go. No wait time for the machine to restart.
My favorite quote from the article: “Stand in the way,” Forrester concludes, “and you will eventually get run over.”
