Don't mean to start the whole mac vs. windows thing, but in my experience getting used to apple is not a very sharp learning curve. My mom uses a windows computer at work - and her job is rather computer intensive, but at home she has a mac mini and for things she does there - browsing, email, movies - she stopped asking me questions after about a week - and she never used a mac before that.

Who knows, you might actually like it ;).

I also find that women in general are more accepting of macs, especially the laptops (nothing personal against guys, but I know quite a few guys who are very prejudiced against macs, while girls are often more open minded). I'd venture a guess that it has something to do with the very streamlined and minimalistic design of their portables. Non-Apple laptops have been improving in that department for the last few years, but they still have a long way to go. I look at my work laptop (a 1 year old MSI, woe is me) and it's just a cacophony of mismatched plastic parts, makes me really appreciate my macbook at home ;).
