Computer industry analyst Tim Bajarin recently offered his insights about Apple to ABCNews.com in a new editorial entitled
Killer Apps: New Macs Set to Conquer PC Market.
Bajarin credits his return to the Mac fold after an extended leave of absence to the PowerBook G4, which he calls “an important tool” for himself personally. Although he admits that he has access to top-of-the-line Wintel laptops and still uses one equipped with Windows XP as his primary machine, Bajarin also noted that the Titanium-clad PowerBook is giving him new reasons to consider using it more.
Namely, Bajarin considers Mac OS X to be “the best windowing operating system on the market today.” His Titanium’s wide-angle screen, DVD combo drive and FireWire support sweetens the pot, too.
The PowerBook G4 is Bajarin’s primary computer with which to manipulate video, still images and digital music. “… all superior due to the iMovie, iPhoto and iTunes programs,” Bajarin wrote, adding that Apple’s iApps “demystify the use of managing new digital media” and actually provoke him to want to use the technology more than he does now.
“While the PC is still critical to my work demands, the Mac is rapidly becoming my media management tool of choice. And who knows, once more of the apps move to the Web, I just might move completely over to the Mac and make it my primary computing device some day,” wrote Bajarin.
