Oh My Lion!!!

Okay, I am not one to be too overly excited about much, but when it comes to my MacBook , IMac, IPOD or IPAD,  I must shamelessly admit, I simply cannot get enough.  Why am I so big on the Mac platform, let me give you a bit. 

I purchased my first Mac platform, my MacBook, in December 2006; it was sort of a Christmas gift for myself.   Now, I had been a total Windows PC guy up to that time, but after I purchased my MacBook, I have not looked back and I don’t see how I could ever go back to using a Windows platform.

It has now been 5 years since I made the switch and I am a total Mac convert – hook-line-and-sinker.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not a rediculous Mac Fanboy, I don’t even like the way that sounds, but I have been totally pleased with everything Apple that I have used – both hardware and software-wise. 

So here we are now.  Mac’s latest operating system – “Lion” – is now out, and sure enough, I am just behind one of the leading-edge installers.  I installed Lion last night.  I haven’t had a chance to really take it for a good spin yet, but from the early signs, it will go the way of the past.  I already know alredy that I will not be disappointed. 

On the financial front, I wish I had stopped and given a look at Apple’s stock years ago, but then again, hindsight is 20/20.  I decided to re-organize my portfolio at the start of the year, as a part of my year review and pick up some apple stocks.  Well, lets put it this way, I am very please at the trajectory that the stock is on.  I would very much recommend a buy, especially after the news on Tuesday that they doubled their net profit quarter over quarter from roughly $3.5B to $7.2B. 

Bottomline – don’t even think about get Samsung, HP or any of the other wanna beat Mac.  just give in and go Mac – resistance my friends is futile.
