Should you or should you not get a Mac in Korea?

Over at seoul space, Erik Cornelius, a self-described "Mac fanboy," provides a nice overview about the reasons to use — or not — a Macintosh in Korea.

Like Mr Cornelius, even though I love Macs for myself, I don't necessarily recommend that everyone should get them.

In addition to the considerations he lays out, a lot of it has to do with whether or not you have knowledgeable people around you who use one or the other. That makes a huge difference.

The slow death of ActiveX and the rise of Apple-friendly iPhones in South Korea may negate some of the reasons not to get a Mac in Korea, but for now, there are some good reasons to join the Windows-using Borg. Back when I set up an office for my fledgling company in the early 2000s, I did have to supply the office with one XP-running computer for those Windows-only programs (HWP in particular) that we couldn't avoid. It was an "Orange" computer, which led us to jokingly referring to the office set up as Apples and Oranges.
