    What computer should I use?
    I've been a PC since day one but I just bought me an iMac.
    Are Apples good for affiliate marketing?

    I know they're not usually the best for business. I've not been able to use Apple in some of my other business endeavors which is why I just figured I'd wait til the rest of the business world caught up to the Apple craze but I know with licensing agreements that may never completely happen.

    So will I be able to use my new fancy schmancy computer sitting prominently with it's huge monitor on my desk, or am I relegated to sticking with this Lenovo laptop for my new affiliate endeavors.

    Sorry if this is a basic question but honestly this newbie would really like to know.

    Thanks.
    Christine

    I've been doing affiliate marketing for over 10 years, and never touched a PC (except on trips in years past before I started carrying a MacBook Pro along).

    I recently started using WordPress, but for several years, I built sites (a dozen or so - all still going strong) with Rapid Weaver, inexpensive Mac-only site-building software, with an abundance of available themes and add-ons. I complained in the past about their lack of support but they have greatly improved that now. I had a problem a couple of weeks ago, and got the answer in a very reasonable time. They also now offer a few dozen instructional videos.

    So the answer is yes, "Apples [are] good for affiliate marketing?"

    I should add that there are no problems using WordPress with a Mac

    Thanks. That's what I was hoping to hear.

    My answers will be:

    1.No computers are good for affiliate marketing

    2.All computers are good for affiliate marketing

    It's not the computer that matters...

    I guess that makes sense.
    Maybe I should have been clearer.

    Is using an iMac going to frustrate a newbie because there are less choices for software, add-ons, themes or anything else that I'm not familiar with yet cause I'm so new?

    The reason I ask is because I also own an ebay store and there are programs like Auctiva and Paypal shipping that don't work well on Google Chrome because they were designed to work on IE so I'm stuck using IE for most things.

    I would not recommend using a TI 99-4A, even with the Extended Basic cartridge installed.

    I think a PC or Mac is perfectly fine, it's all preference. If you have a program you want to use but it's not compatible with your Mac, there are probably other solutions available, you'll just have to bend a little ;-)
