    NEVER BUY A DELL.
    Any one working in IT will tell you the same.
    Just trust me on this one.

    If you're not used to the Apple OS, then don't go for Mac either.
    I've always used Toshiba. Good stables PCs.

    Enoch was right.

    Get a mac! Mac just cause it works, and windows doesn't. And on a mac, everything looks cool, and is easy to use. Windows is good for pie charts though (you'll know if you've seen the adverts). Graphics work, video editing, and all cool stuff is much easier and better on a mac. They do a much nicer job. And you'll be able to go to any website, without worrying about viruses, and open any attachment, and download anything. macs are the future. Windows is trying to be.

    Haha, I'm sensing some Bias here

    Mac's don't 'just work'. That's the most stupid saying I've ever heard.

    Macs have their downfalls, you're just unwilling to list them.

    Personally, I'd go with windows. It's more commonly used..MUCH more..That must tell you something. Easy to work with, and the OS isn't messy like Apple's OS versions.

    Enoch was right.

    Agree with DRMARIO, windows are more widely used not only in the United States, but throughout the whole world. So the better investment is obviously windows. The are also more and better software out for windows. With windows you have endless possibilities. Macs are not bad, in fact they are great, but they are not used as much.

    If you want Windows, I'd go with just about anything BUT Dell.

    The Mac GUI is a totally different experience, and it takes some getting used to. I would say go check out an apple store (or most Best Buys have apple displays now) and try one out. What I like about it is with Mac you can do things with a much higher level of efficiency. The Mac OS is centered around keyboard shortcuts that let you switch, arrange, close, even look at all your apps windows without even having to touch your mouse.

    It has a much more efficient file system, and a very fast file search, that includes EVERYTHING. For example, if I wanted to find a section of notes from a child psych class I took two years ago, even if I don't know the name of the file but I know I'm looking for "Piaget conservationist tasks" all I do is type that in and it will actually search within the text not just the file name, of every file looking for that keyword and find whatever notes I took that contain that phrase. I'm pretty sure Vista does this now too, but old windows file search SUCKED

    There is no start menu. All your apps are in the animated dock that can be placed on the bottom, left, or right side of the screen The slim bar on the top of the screen changes to the controls for whatever app you have "in focus". Right now my top bar says "Firefox - Files -Edit-View-History....etc" If I were to tab over to iTunes it would say "iTunes - File - Edit -Control - Store" etc.

    Another feature I like are the "Active screen corners"
    mine are set up like this:

    Mouse hits this extreme corner: this action happens
    Top left: All windows move off screen showing desktop
    bottom left: Widgets appear (Dashboard)
    top right: all windows are resized and tiled over desktop for easy viewing
    (A.K.A the Expose feature)
    bottom right: activates screen saver


    Just a few examples of OSX features

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/tiger/
    Here is a walkthrough of the current OSX 10.4 (Tiger).

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/features/

    Go here to check of some of the new features coming soon in OSX 10.5 (Leopard)


    Like I said. Go try one out. If it doesn't suite you then go for anything but a Dell.

    And as far as people talking about more and better software: Just about anything Windows can run, Mac can also run. There are Mac versions of Microsoft Office, All Adobe products are made for both, all Macromedia products are made for both. And Boot Camp lets you take a small chunk of your hard drive and emulate Windows on it. I play CounterStrike: Source, HL2 and Blizzard games on my MacBook pro. So don't listen to people talking trash on Mac. Hell, don't listen to me praising it. Just go try it out for yourself. Pick the kind of computer you feel better using. I use both, in fact I own 2 PCs and a Mac laptop. Each OS has their ups and downs. But seriously, Just because more people use Windows is no basis to also use it. It's more compatible than Windows fan boys say. I've done ALL my school work on Macs, and my proffs always have Windows. Word files, Power point, networking, VPN, I've never had a professor tell me they had problems.
