Definition of Apple fanboy

December 13, 2011

Jim Dalrymple’s definition of an Apple fanboy hits home for me. Especially this particular part of the definition:

“someone that loves to get the job done instead of working on their machine”

When I began my switch to the Macintosh nearly a decade ago my single biggest reason that I trumpeted to friends was that I could focus on my work rather than wasting countless hours maintaining my computer. I remember spending far too much time reinstalling my operating system, defragmenting my hard drive, installing virus and malware protection software, and other such tasks. Since switching to the Macintosh I have not had to spend a single minute on any of those things. The Mac lets me do work and get back to life. And I’m a huge fan of life.
