The only Apple products in my house are the iPod, iPhone, and the kind we eat.

Yes. In fact, I tested my iPod with the 1er before I committed to buying Orca. The Audi/VW iPod interface was so bad, I couldn't seriously considering buying one of those.

Mac is #1 for your home life, PC is #1 for the business world. That's just how it is. Mac does multimedia the best, which is fun stuff, which is home life. Try getting a Mac to hold a DSN to set the connection to a SQL database, or get it to hold the JInit conn to Oracle, so you can run your sales database queries, and you are SOL. CIM/CRM on a Mac, again, business world, again better PC.

But for home, once Mac had a PC motherboard+PC chipset, and the MacOS is based on PC-UNIX, and runs PC Windows, then Mac started selling like mad. But recommended don't do the whole Windows-hybrid bit on a business system. Any Netadmin worth his salt already knows this one.

Have a PC and a IPhone, and you are all set.

It depends on your business. When I worked at Oakley, our department was 99% mac-based. And that's including all the developers. OS X is unix-based so you can't say serious work can't get done on a mac. The only reason most of the enterprise software isn't as great on the mac is because those large corporations are using windows/java developers to port software over and they have no clue what they are doing. But it's understandable that they don't have a big budget to do software right on the mac because as you said, most of these business apps are running on windows anyways.

Regardless, I run windows natively on my mac when I need it (which is pretty much only for gaming). I use OS X for home and business.

I've been through a few macs in the last years:

G4 Powermac (MDD)
iBook G4
G5 Powermac
15" Powerbook G4
20" iMac G5
15" Macbook Pro (original core duo)
24" iMac (Core2Duo)
Macbook Air

Right now I'm running the current gen 15" unibody Macbook Pro.

2x 20" Cinema Display
1x 30" Cinema Display
1x 24" Cinema Display

Currently using the 24" LED Cinema Display

3rd gen iPod
iPod Video
Current Gen iPod (160gb??)
A few shuffles and minis (never owned a nano)
1st gen iPhone
iPhone 3g (current)

2x Airport base stations
2x Airport express

Tons of random apple peripherals (Oh and I have an AppleTV as well)

I guess I'm considered a Fanboy. Funny enough, before I bought my first mac, I was a huge windows guy and built tons of PCs. I hated macs in the OS9 days.
