Yes. I'm a Mac owner first, and an iPhone owner second. I'm far more attached to my Macbook Pros than the iPhone.

I have to use a Mac for work. I should say that doing anything outside the obvious and easy on the Mac takes a LOT of tech savvy - more so than doing less common things on Windows as it requires a lot of command line work. Also, my Mac has been less table than my Win 7 x64 PC....

Poll results are interesting. Seriously thought the majority of iPhone users were Mac loyalists. Thanks for participating guys.

Far more iPhone users than Mac users globally, and in the US, so this seems par for the course.

I also forgot to address the OP: I use an iPhone, am still a die hard PC user at home (slowly learning Windows Server as well - have 2012r2 as a file server) and use a Macbook Pro everyday for work.

I actually don't use an iPhone or a mac, so I'm probably just trolling here but ...

The above apparent disconnect always humors me, though in reality its actually a mac strong point. Macs are both easy to use, for the "non tech savvy" crowd but, at the same time since it is Unix based, brings along a very powerful tool set at the same time. Wolf in sheep's clothing comes to mind. Again, not a mac user in general, since most of my client base is PC based, but definitely respect what Apple brings to the table. Except for the iPhone ... for that I am not a fan.
