PC to Apple? 
Watch out, Bill Gates, our unscientific survey finds a big percentage of PC
users would consider switching to a Mac

News flash! Windows PCs don't seem to inspire the kind of loyalty that Macs
do. At least, that's the conclusion you might draw from the nearly 1,800
responses to our Mar. 27 reader survey, entitled: PC to Apple?

Some 49% of the respondents -- about 800 people -- said they would consider
switching from a Windows PC to a Mac. That's a particularly impressive
total, considering that only about 675 people -- or 38% of the respondents
-- said they currently don't own any kind of Apple computer.

How could the number of people who are willing to switch be 125 greater than
the number who don't have an Apple? Well, it could be that some folks in the
larger group own both Macs and PCs -- and are willing to abandon the PC. Or,
it could be that some Mac owners decided to help tilt the results of the
survey a little, to give a boost to their favorite machine. Either way, the
conclusion is the same: No computer inspires so much loyalty as a Mac.

Incidentally, about 60% of the respondents said that if they were to buy a
new Apple today, it probably would be an iMac. Around 20% would choose a
G-4, and a significant number -- 13.5% -- would choose a high-end TiBook
