How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter


"I'm not bowled over by the Macintosh. It's a great OS with some great tools and like a friend said on Facebook when I first got it, it is Linux with great multi-media. I love Photo Booth, iPhoto, iMovie and iDVD all great software products that work together rather seamlessly. But are they worth double the price of a Dell for the average person. I don't think so. I think Apple's future is with the iPhone and maybe their upcoming tablet. They are really a desktop OS and the future belongs to mobile platforms. I think Microsoft has gotten the bugs out of Vista in Windows 7. So far it's quite easy to operate and doesn't have all the "yes/no" permission questions of Vista. I got Windows 7 Premium because I wanted to experiment with their multimedia tools too. I bought this Dell Inspiron 1545 because I got a great price. It was a refurb and most of my PCs are Dell refurbs. I save $200-$300 per unit that way. I wanted to install Ubuntu on it from "go" and I also wanted to virtualize Windows 7 and experiment with it."
