      I've used both (iMac, eMac w/OSX) and PC since DOS 6.22, now WinXP Pro. I have a HUGE preference for PC. The Mac is good for multimedia and whatnot, or so I hear, and it's a nice gooey OS, but to be honest, PC is tried and true, has never (well, rarely ) failed me, is so mainstream that anything and everything works great on it, and it does everything I need it to do. There is absolutely no reason for me to switch (especially considering the cost of Macs! UGH!) Although I love the one with the swivel, height/angle adjusting LCD monitor, that's a sweet design

      Nothing personal against the Mac, great machine, just not for me!

      They both have their place.
      But I find PC to be more rounded...

      When people talk about Macs Vs PCs, they tend to think of Windows vs MacOS. I prefer Linux to both of those, and Linux can run on PC or Mac hardware, so I have no real preference

      I'd have to go with pc because macs are more expensive and do the exact same thing.

      An idea is something you haven't fully considered.
      A belief is merely a repetitive thought.
      A conclusion is simply where you stopped thinking.

      I have a friend that I have known for like 10 years, he always had a mac. We play games a lot over the internet. You would be surpised how many games take an extra year to come out on the mac, after it already came out on pc. Plus macs have problems with patches and stuff for a lot of the games where you can't play with PC. Both lose out but since 90% of the people are normally on a PC it hurts them more.

      So while I have nothing againt them I wouldn't want a mac.

      (time to diss a mac).

      Macs are good for not having viruses:

      Virus: I don't mind infecting PC's but like, a Mac, I would never infect them. I mean, it would only stop work for like, 10 people worldwide.[/b]
      (if you don't get that then it's implying there's only 10 mac users)

      I definately perfer PCs! When you have to haul around 30 macs around in a single day you might think that way, too.... Those things are too friggin-awful heavy to frickin carry!!!!!

      And the regular Mac 2-part machines aren't any better.

      truthbearer is right PC stands for Personal Computer, so i could call a mac a PC and have it make sense (well, unless its a server or sumthin which in fact is NOT personal)


      Macs are better at video editing and special effects and whatnot, but i would never get one because whats the point of buying a whole nuther computer just for one feature when i gots a comp right here thats like 10x faster that what mac claims to be "the fastest personal personal computer ever"

      only if you're a retard and dont know how to keep your PC virus free/spyware free and do proper uninstalls/reinstalls.

      But, I guess if all you do is available on the Mac, then that'd be better for you yeah.

      I don't know why Mac users think Windows is still in the stone age...I rarely have problems with XP Pro.
