Having found the whole Apple concept light years ahead of my Windows/Microsoft etc. technology, what sort of problems would I have if I just junked my present PC and simply went out and bought an Apple Laptop say 17" - huge money I know!

Every piece of software and every document, contact, you name it has ALL been created on my Windows Vista PC mainly with MS Office 97.

Would it be an absolute nightmare trying to reinstall most of the software and open and edit docs assuming I could ever transfer them to the Mac?

Would I have to invest vast sumns of loot for new software?

Having played with the latest Mac Pro at a friends place I can see why once you have had an Apple anything then you never want to go back - or am I wrong?

Advice appreciated!

I would recommend going to an Apple retail store and using the "PC Data Transfer Service" to migrate your files to your Mac. Otherwise, you can use "Move2Mac" or a separate external hard drive to transfer files. Your MS Office files should be compatible with "Office for Mac"(which you will have to purchase separately) and should work fine.
