Macs. Our firm applications don't work on them. You have to have virtual machines in them so you can have Windows to do useful tasks. They barley have any storage space in them. Way too many problems that I can go on and on about

You guys do know all Google developers use Mac right? In fact most software development places use Mac since you can run Linux commands.

Mac and Linux are so much better than Windows. I cannot stand having to use Windows - only thing making it bearable is enterprise level tech support.

@D3 Thanks, you proved my point exactly. It's all about configuration, it can run fine in a correctly configured Air.

Deloitte digital has a lot of people using Mac. Hate them !

All Apple at home. But PC at work. Have seen several people at work have major issues with Macs due to using the virtual desktop and all of the crap the firm puts on it for security.

I doubt any of us are doing any work in the UNIX terminal so there really is no benefit to using Macs over thinkpads. Compatibility with the office suite and extensions are way more important for business consulting.

Any tips for using excel on a Mac? I'm a wiz on a pc but feel like a grandma on a Mac. It seems that many shortcuts are missing.

D2: Hate Macs, or the people using them? 😄

D2 I use a Mac for work specific applications but I can never access Deloitte apps because they're not compatible. Grass isn't always greener.

Sounds to me like all the Deloitte guys have shitty Mac experience.

D5: If space is $$, then the screen real estate of a 15" MacBook Pro is total luxury.

I used Mac at my last firm, it was glorious... Except when you had to run parrallels like D2 mentioned

I spent several years in industry on the IT side. If you're having trouble with VM on the Mac it's usually due to a confit issue or the user not using it properly. Trust me, we had an environment with 1100 MB Airs. The MTBF on these things makes it so much more cost effective then an HP or Dell. With that said, they Microsoft New Book Pro, is sexy.
