Coming from using Windows XP and Windows 7, and reading how some people love Mac OS X after switching while others don't - I'm feeling a bit conflicted here. I want to make the switch to try it out but at the same I don't. 
 
All I use my computer for is browsing the web, writing, music, excel, downloading, managing documents etc. Just regular stuff. Would the supposed pleasure experienced from OS X on a Macbook be worth it? Price is not a factor, so just tell me your views based on the actual OS rather than Apples hardware or prices.
 
I would love to hear your views.

 

It took me about a week to get used to it. Then I really loved it. It's fluid and user-friendly. You probably already made your decision by now. If you went with Mac, I just wanted to add that you should probably wait to get Mac OS X Yosemite until after the beta testing is finished and the final version is released. There have been bugs.

Sure, you'll probably be very happy with OS X, it is a very good OS. You'll also wonder, why anyone ever needed a Start Menu. Like ever. 

 

No such thing in OS X and yet it works. Very well. In fact, it is quite similar to Windows 8.
