She's a school teacher and personally I think another Windows laptop would be better suited for her. She already has a lot of software for it, knows her way around it (she was just asking her sister on Facebook how to burn a dvd with a Mac lol) and if anything goes wrong with a Mac neither my brother or myself will be able to help her with it as we've never used one ourselves. She has an iPad and uses it a lot (especially for Facetime etc) and also an iPhone. I think the main reason she wants a Mac is due to marketing etc. I don't want to turn this into another Mac vs PC thread, I know they both suit different people with different uses, but in this case I think it would be much easier to just stick with Windows. So how do I break this marketing spell that Apple has cast upon her?
