    I think my memory is nutty but I thought Mike hopped on board with an Apple PC for a while there. He at least gave it a shot if I remember right.

    Both of them had Macs for a while (Apple PC makes me think of an Apple II). They did a comic when Mike went Mac:

    Actually, it looks like they both got Macs at about the same time:

    Man, I'd really like to work towards this in my own life (less because I don't like the Apple ecosystem itself, and more because I feel slightly uneasy having to be limited to it) but the little things (and the one big thing, namely Time Machine not having any real equivalent in the Windows world) always keep me away from moving to something overall slightly less expensive.

    FTFY.

    Nothing like Apple marking up a graphics card from two generations ago and selling it for current-gen prices. Or $80 CD-ROM drives.

    Some days Blue wonders why anyone ever bothered making numbers so small; other days she supposes even infinity needs to start somewhere.

    It really depends on how you roll with the systems. I'm never going back to building my own systems because it's not a worthwhile time expenditure for me anymore. So, while the price for a pre-rolled Windows machine would still be expensive, it may not be quite as expensive as the Apple machine I might have otherwise bought.

    However, it's a moot point if I can't replace my OS X functionality on the Windows side without endless fiddling (hardware and software-wise), which is something I'm quite adamant about avoiding.

    What other comics were there where the gratuitous violence is only implied?

    Actually, Windows 8 added a utility called File History, which many people have called "Time Machine for Windows"
