I have been waiting for the new OS Snow Leopard out for months. Just like one year ago I got my iMac 24 box, I was waiting for the new OS. Hopefully the new OS will be out this summer time around June, instead of in September this year like some rumors said.
When the new OS is out, I am going to get a new Mac mini box as my multimedia box. I have got an LCD TV. I am prepared to link my new mini to the TV with HDMI connector. When iLife 2009 was out early this year, I was very impressed with iLife 2009 and I want to use it to organize my photos and edit videos. I knew the new OS would be out this year. So I have been on hold for the new OS out.
Recently I read some news about Apple's sales down several points in April. I don't think there is anything wrong with Apple computers and OS. I guess that there may be many people like me just waiting for the new OS. With the new Snow Leopard OS, the new computer will be shine with all the new stuff.
So far I have very rare cases using my PC with Windows at home for more than a year. Apple's computer is really much better than Windows. Microsoft Windows 7 will be out close to the end this year. According to some new and reviews, Windows 7 will be much improved comparing to XP and Vista. It is good thing to have competitions between Mac and Windows. I am an end user. What I like is the good OS with less troubles.
Even with the sales down, Apple still insists on its track to keep high quality OS and computer and not influenced by some market critics. It is true that Mac computer is much pricey than PCs. I have talked to many of my friends and they still keep buying PC. However, Apple is still on its track with quality as its high priority. That's what I like the most.
