Yes, I saw that.<br>You and I are not helping the stats at all.<br>I don't think it is a good thing. <br>Mac needs the young people to sustain growth.<br>But I think a lot of the switchers are young people...maybe the stats will change.<br><br><br>
some context:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>. . . nearly half of Mac owners are 55 and older--almost double the share for average home PC users.<br><br>For the digital youth, high-street box shifter Gateway is the brand of choice, taking the No. 1 slot among PC buyers between ages 18 and 25. <p><hr></blockquote><p>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
my daughter's grade school and my son's preschool both use Macs.<br><br>unfortunately, they are also both still using OS 9. doh! i have a feeling that they will never upgrade and that PCs will be the next move. i keep my fingers crossed though. but, OS 9 . . . sheesh!<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
the preschool has 2 computers per classroom and 4 classrooms. they have older purple iMacs, so i am not sure they can be upgraded.<br><br>my daughter's school has computer labs with white iBooks. i would guess that they have 40 laptops, but i don't know how many are in other classrooms. my daughter's classroom has only 1, but older grades might have more. my daughter's grade school has 4 first grade classes and there are 2 other grade schools as well. i heard that the middle and high schools have already gone PC, so the ball is already rolling down the wrong path. <br><br>i guess we'll have to move. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
