    Mac vs. PC

    What do you all find the pros/cons of these two pieces of machinery?

    I personally like the Macs, their user-friendly interfaces and their compatibility with many apps. is great and other hardware (iPod, AppleTV, and now iPhone). I love their OS X Tiger and cannot wait to get my hands on the OS X Leopard. Plus Apple, Inc. always makes a machine that isn't too hard to look at.

    If we could keep this thread as friendly as possible that would be great. Remember this is just a thread on personal preference not ultimatums on the best computer.

    *added a poll*

    Obviously, csiguy4u, you didn't read the "friendly" part of this thread.

    Anyway, I prefer the operating system of Macs, but I don't care if it's on Apple's hardware, though I don't plan on trying the hackOSX on a self-built PC. I have a 15" PowerBook G4 and love the thing. I sort of wish I had gone with the MacBook Pro, but it was new when I wanted a laptop and I don't like going with things that new; like to be able to run all OSs at once if I could. I like linux as well, but it's not nearly as seamless as OS X.

    Just have to say, those who say things like, oh I don't know, "MACS BLOW," generally haven't tried the current Macs or have...for about 10 minutes.

    Good thread topic.

    I Absolutely love the New Macbooks, But i dont like using their operating systems, Im so used to microsoft windows, i'd never change now, ive tried, But it just seems weird..

    Personally , i prefer Microsofts Professional touch on things.
    Towards next year, im planning on getting a white mac book, but ill probably run windows Vista on it after a while..If thats possible? Im pretty sure it is..

    Enoch was right.

    I love playing on Mac's in the Apple store, but I don't really know what I'm doing where I'm so used to Windows took me forever to realise you have to click a certain colour (red or blue I think) to close a window, and it was on the top-left of the window and not the top-right just little things like that was confusing me due to using Windows all my life, therefore, Windows gets my vote

    I have used Windows most of my life but, once I started getting into video/audio editing Macs seemed like a natural fit for me.

    (PCs are better for that)
    The UK TV program Gadget show Put the newest Mac up against a PC of smiler spec (it was cheaper)
    The PC won

    the PC can be used for just about everything. the mac can be used for almost everything. it is very limited on the games however it excels in the editing (video, photo, audio)

    How is it limited in the games? It can run not just it's own OS, Mac OS X, but also Linux almost any version of Windows either natively using Boot Camp, or all at the same time using Parallels Desktop. I'm guessing you're talking about the lack of graphics cards, but seriously, who has money to keep running out to buy a new one for $300-$600 every six months? Sometimes, you just have to say something is good enough, in my opinion.

    sorry, i keep forgetting about how Macs can now run Windows but before that, the windows emulator wasnt very good when it came to running games
