That's right; in a recent survey by Retrevo, a consumer electronics shopping site, 67% percent of Mac users would take Windows 7 for a spin if it was free! Before Steve Jobs has a heart attack or Balmer starts sweating up a storm with his victory dance; take note that 97% of Mac owners surveyed said that they wouldn't even think about switching back to Windows full time.
But just because Windows 7 won't win back many Mac users doesn't mean it hasn't caught the attention of PC users in a big way.
The Mac vs. PC argument is being stoked by Microsoft's "Laptop Hunters" commercials and a fresh round of Apple's "Get a Mac Ads."

For over 20 years Apple fanboys and enthusiasts have congregated to an annual event known as Macworld Expo. As a lover of Apple products myself, I have attended the expo the last two years and will be sharing my experience at Macworld 2009 here at Notebooks.com.

Apple does not organize the event so this does not mean it will be canceled, but without them does that mean that expo is done for? Will fanboys weep in the streets the first full week of January each year? Not anytime soon.
