Google inks biggest ever apps deal

@ Jimbo

Let's be honest here, for your run of the mill email, documents and spreadsheet work, MS Office is overpriced. Google Apps or for that matter OpenOffice et al are just fine.

Wow, what a lot of negative posts...

Having been a PC person for the best part of 20 years, last year I took the plunge and went all Apple.

Initially it was a tad difficult and I am referring to the operating system here, just having to get used to doing things differently.

We have 2 iMacs and I have to say that I have been very impressed. I have no need to upgrade the hard disk or even ram for that matter. It runs all the applications I need without difficulty. So, iWorks and Office 2008, MAME, TextMate, Photoshop and a host of other applications for our business.

The look and feel (including build quality) are excellent, keyboard is superb, screen is superb mouse is shite).

Why did I buy an apple - two reasons - I wanted a solid operating system that works and I wanted a good looking computer that worked out of the box. Cannot fault Apple on that count.

If you want to hot swap drives, upgrade, fiddle about etc. don't buy an apple, simple really.
