I never thought I’d switch to a Mac. After all, I have used PCs since I was 5 years old. I carried around my old Dell Inspiron 8000, a bulky nine-pound beast of a laptop, throughout high school, and it never suffered from any hardware problems over its five-year lifespan.

The trouble was Windows — the operating system from hell.

So I decided to take the plunge and get a Mac. I wasn’t alone; in fact, 40 percent of Princeton students and faculty use Macs as their personal computers.
