I have been thinking lately about switching from my PC to a Mac. I have become a huge fan of my iPod touch and really love the look and feel of Apple products and software. I just do not know if I can overcome the cost of switching.
The Mac that I would buy is about $1499. Add another $150 for Microsoft Office. If I want to run Windows programs, like Family Tree Maker, go ahead and add another $200-$300 to install a copy of Windows. The numbers just do not seem to add up.
The Reunion genealogy software looks awsome and is integrated with the iPod Touch, flawlessly. However it would cost $100 for Reunion and $15 for the iPod version. We are in the $2,000 range now!
I would love to take the plunge but there is a lot of other stuff I would rather spend that kind of money on. Anyone out there make the switch and found that it was worth the time and money?
