I couldn't say, really.

I love the sheer useability of Macs. They're stable and sleek, and come with loads of software which would cost hundreds to buy for the PC. The way everything intergrates and the yearly OS updates are fantastic. I just hate the way that Apple overprice the systems given their not-so-fancy innards and the fact that upgrading most of them is tricky and limited. Not too many games are released on them, too.

On the other hand, Windows PCs are unstable power houses. If you're buying from a custom PC builder you don't know what you'll end up with (trust me - do NOT buy from Arbico Computers). However, you get so much more for your money - from power to the range of software and games.

All in all, I'd take an Apple laptop, but a big brand PC desktop.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Wisely said Phreaky_McGeek.

In short here's how it is:
for games: PC
for work or rich people: Mac

If Macs were not stable they would have been out of the market years ago, so I think it's a very good point for them. Though the gaming industry offers little to nothing for them with no exclusives that boom the media/press. When was the last time you read about a great Mac exclusive game on the front page of a magazine not dedicated to Macs?
The big problem is getting one. Very, very expensive and almost unavailable in most of the world.

While as with the PCs you can find them everywhere in parts or installed working stations. Nearly all software runs on them, on different OS some times, but it's made for them.
And the gaming industry is so wide spread there, that I don't even have to remind you people.
Where as the prices are much pleasing.


Also I saw some british show a month ago where they took a brand new Mac G4 and an ordinary PC with about the same parameters and threw them from 20-30 feet high.
Neither would start so they opened them and both motherboards were broken (no other visually obvious brakes). For just under 3 hours and $90 they got and installed a new motherboard for the PC and it ran once again.
To get the Mac fixed they called 3 dealers across Britain and none could sell them just the part, and none could tell them less than two weeks and $300 for the repairs.

Do the math...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I prefer pc over mac too. the mac mouse is weird (only 1click) and i agree with pretty much what you guys said about the prices and everything. i have the sudden urge to see some mac fanboy argue that macs are better (in all catorgories)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

the benefits for buying a windows based pc greatly outway the benefits of a mac..

macs are for gay people, and girls, and guys who think they are being 'trendy'

* oh and i almost forgot, for ignorant people who pay great attention to commercials

I'm using a PC because I'm used to using a PC. I've been using one since I was a kid, and I know far more about them than I do about macs. Why bother changing?

Viruses are exploits in existing vulnerabilities of the operating system.
Keeping in mind that Linux is a fast-developing open-source system it tends to fix those vulnerabilities the viruses exploit. But yes, there are viruses for Linux and Mac. They just don't attract that much attention. And barely anyone bothers writing viruses for them. They're just not that much of a wide target.

No doubt PC is better than Mac in many ways, But Mac has some advantages of its own, like for graphics user etc.
But PC is PC (Personal Computer) So it's your own, it's very much compatible with latest hardware,games .... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif
