As a law student and a Mac, I know first hand that the main impediment to using Macs in the legal profession is software compatibility. Do you want to take exams with Exam4? You need Windows? Secure Exam is cross compatible, but my school decided not to use it. Want to use PC Law or amicus attorney? Yep. Windows again. While I will continue to use Macs (using Bootcamp and Parallels to run Windows only software), these solutions simply aren't feasible for law firms to implement. It is easier to run Windows natively on standard PC boxes, despite all of Windows problems. Windows is not better than OS X, but the majority of legal software is written for it.Carlos
Agreed ... Parallels and virtualization should change that though.As you stated there are Mac alternatives and a more attorneys use them ... more alternatives will surface.
