As long time Windows user (and MS-DOS before that) I used to hate Apple PCs. On one job, I was provided with a Mac desktop - and it was like a dyslexic goldfish (totally carp). However, when the iPhone got to the 3GS I tried one as it could actually make life a bit easier for me as, when travelling, one gadget could, potentially, replace four (my Nokia phone, my Tungsten PDA, my TomTom GPS - essential when getting a hire car at an overseas airport - and an iPod). It actually worked well and, impressed by the way staff in the local Apple Store never pushed to sell me anything (they actually pointed out cheaper options) I tried out an iMac - with Windows 7 dual booting as I still had unhappy memories from my earlier Mac. However, the iMac was a revelation in how Apple had progressed and that is still my main desktop PC 8 years on; Windows (10) is no longer dual booted as it runs fine as a VM (through Parallels) on the occasions I need it for software that still insists on Windows.
Add in an iPad and a newer iPhone and all work together, almost seamlessly. Photos taken on the phone appear on teh iPad to show others and the iMac for editing and archiving; documents prepared on the iMac are available on the phone or iPad; notes, contacts and calendar entries - it doesn't matter on which I enter or update them, they appear on all.
I eventually bought an iMac for my wife, which brought the majority of appeals like "Darling, how do I...?" to an end. If she has a problem nowadays it's almost always regarding Excel (yes, we use MS Office). Apple kit is more expensive to buy, and I sometimes need to accept Apple's insistence on doing something their way, but I've found it does what I need it to do.
