Why I Recommend APPLE Computers
I am probably going to get a bit of flack on this one, but I want to put it out there anyway.
First, some background on me, so you can see my experience with computers.
I started with computers in 1984, working on an IBM PC with DOS 1.1
Since then I have been working with computers, a series of DOS and Windows Based computers (although I have also used the TRS-80, and the Commodore 64!)
In the late 90s, I got a chance to do tech support for Apple computers.
At that time, I was impressed by the way the OS ran, as compared to Windows 3.1.
Windows 2000 when it came out was an emulation of their OS, as have been every version of windows since then.
Regardless, my point is this:
All of the stuff that people like so much about PCs was originally designed by Apple!
Yes an apple is more expensive - but you can do things to interface your phone, your TV, your ipad, and your computer with nothing more than a couple of steps.
You don't have to buy so many third party programs to do things that are already built into them!
