Do Macintosh computers ever break?
Macintosh computers are much better than PCs. But, really, that isn't saying very much. They are, after all just computers. Made out of plastic and wires and stuff. If you think that switching from a PC to a Mac will be a magical experience, you are expecting too much.
Don't get me wrong. Macs are great. You will love yours. But it runs on electricity just like anything else, not on fairy dust. The reason I say this is because of the tremendous expectations people seem to have for these machines. And that's what they are, just machines. Macintosh computers do break. They can freeze up, just like PCs. They can get viruses. Yes, they are only human. So, be realistic. Back up your files, invest in virus protection. Just because you're on a Mac now doesn't mean nothing will ever go wrong.
OK, I feel better now. Go enjoy your new Mac!
