Years ago I took a poetry class as an undergraduate. The professor asked each student why they elected poetry. I responded that there was a lot of poetry that I did not like and I wanted to know why. At the end of the course I appreciated a wider variety of poetry, but that same experience and understanding also deepened and extended my dislike.
This week I bought my first Apple computer. When asked why I elected the Macbook Pro over a Dell XPS I respond in a similar fashion as I did about the poetry. I have decided to experience the system for myself in order to judge more thoroughly the benefits and costs of an Apple solution. Gazing into my crystal ball, I can see how there may be ways in which I appreciate the Mac more, but in others I'll simply consider it bad poetry.
