    I personally would never buy a mac, but that is just me. They just don't meet my computer needs.

    I would go PC, I have used Macs before and quite frankly they are worthless IMO. Most of my programs won't run on a mac, and why buy a mac and then install windows on it? As for photo editing and stuff, I don't see why anyone says a mac is better. I have done work just as fast with a PC and certainly now that I have Windows Vista which is amazing everything runs faster and better. I have never had a single virus with my desktop that I have now, and I have had it for 3 years now. Install the right firewall's and anti-virus and you won't have a problem with it. I recommend HP media center PC's, the one time i had a problem I wasn't calling India and the online chat support is amazing as well.

    We have both Macs and PCs in my house. My personal computer is just that, a PC. The Mac is good if you want to run creative stuff like photoshop, iMovie, etc. I havent tried running windows on mine, so I dont know how it works. In the apple side of things, the web browsers dont agree with a lot of websites so you dont get as good browsing as with a PC. I have trouble posting here on the Mac.

    Not to mention, unless you have Windows on the mac (and I dont even know if it works this way), you cant run flight simulator.

    I think I get the general message. A MAC would be great for a lappy but I cant justify one unless work would let me use it for work and home use, that would not happen as they lock the laptops down.

    This is what I normally do every 2 years. I always get the latest model. I have last years version of this.

    My desktop is a PC, my laptop is a MacBook Pro.

    Apple has the best service of any company I know. Less risk of viruses, and if you do alot of graphic work they are better (including photos.) My Macbook Pro actually caught fire yesterday, and I have no doubt I will get a new one tomorrow night when I take it in to the Apple Store.

    I've got a mac mini and it runs XP like a dream...one word...BOOTCAMP!

    For those moments when you really need to switch back to windows.

    Head to head, you will always get more value from a PC. A PC that cost $1000 will blow a Mac that costs $1000 out of the water. Generally the more you spend with either, the better performance you will get. But if you take what you pay for a Mac and buy a PC for the same price, the PC will own the Mac. I don't really care about what most people complain about with PC's, I generally don't have any problems, and when I do have an issue it's not that hard to fix. I rather be able to open my computer and upgrade and do stuff to it, then have it sealed shut and have to buy a new one when I want a new video card.

    I switched to Mac some months ago. What really annoyed me with the PC (Windows) were Firewalls, Anti-Virus stuff, crashes and I had to set up the bloody thing new every once in a while to keep it running relatively smooth. Have not had any similar problem with the Mac so far.
    It depends where your priorities are. For games I'd recommend you to stay with a PC simply because most games are meant to run on a windows platform.

    You can always get a PC with a "nice look" as well . Also, what I personally don't like about Macs, at least the G4 that I use at work, is that they can't run floppy disks (yes, many people still use those), and all USB-ports are on the backside of it, meaning you have to crawl under the table whenever you want to plug in a USB-stick. Far from being practical.

    Personaly i cant stand Mac's. But if your looking for something that has a nice 'look' to it then buy it. If however you want a real commputer stear clear.

    A Mac should have no problem running online games. Heck, Macs can even run Windows OS like XP. It depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend. People always say how Macs are so much superior to PCs, but I have personally made more positive experiences with my old beatup PC than the Mac I have to use at work.
