As a comp sci major I have to go with PC. MAC is more reliable but for programming, games, n stuff more is out for PC. *shrugs* If you know how to run a PC it isnt bad anyway.

I have used both and all I can say is that you really cant compare them. They are both good for what they are used for. Mainly macs handle graphics way better if not.... a lot better... and most of the computer graphics and elements are done on mac's. Besides.....the PC's or the Microsoft OS features are pretty much opposite of the mac's if at all. anyways....I have used both and I like both. Though I am waiting for someone to come up with a better program than Windows due to the many bugs with the software/ hardware.

i personally think pcs are better but mac are better in graphic designs like editing home movies, photo albums ect.but pcs have RIGHT-CLICK, it is also a wider platform meaning that is more available for pcs such as video games, programs, but now the macs are coming out and more and more items are now available for mac so maybe in the future like 20 yrs from now macs will be dominant

Macs get viruses too, and crash(surprisingly worse than even my Windows Me ). Just dispelling those overhyped urban legends.

I have a cheap Acer laptop running XP version 2, and at work I have to use iMac G5.

Mac has top of the line graphics software .

But also a useless mouse, no manually controlled CD drive(when it crashes you can't get your disk out=lolz), use the graphics software to use up Gigs of memory even if it is a 3 minute project being burned. If you are retarded on any system, you will also get viruses on any system(quit downloading 1.3 MB pornos stupid!). They have sacrificed system-wide stability for program stability. Their programs look pretty, but when the "rainbow wheel of death" or the "black screen of destroy your video project" get you, you will be pissed. And don't get me started on the spitting vagina on these things(Hardware designs are not a factor because they can be changed, easily).

XP has now done the opposite, unless my gaming overheats my hardware, my XP ain't going down. Or if I run more than 7 programs at once(no random blue screen in 2.5 months). And they have games and all the basic features of iMacs, except they are open source so you won't be kept put of the loop in a few years(huge software advantage).
Too many bugs has an upside, you actually have more options when they are fixed. Just don't rush out and buy any new product before they work out the bugs.
Now if they could only get the beautiful jell-like interface of the Macs, wait... Vista you say...well, that settles it.

PS: Hitler would applaud those Mac vs PC commercials.

You should. Linux rules! Just don't use Fedora Core. I personally recommend OpenSuse. It makes updating so much easier!

I personally have used Macs, Linux, and Windows, and I have to say that Linux was the best. As long as you know how to use the terminal, Linux is very easy to use.

I like PC (windows) a lot more than Mac. I only ever used Mac in grade school and PC's seem much easier to use. Being a gamer sways my opinion as well.

I am using a PC for one reason only, it was free, otherwise I'd be using my Mac, which just happens to be downstairs, so I don't really use it much.
There is one great advantage of the Mac - Multiple Users! (at once) - this means that when anyone is logged on a second account is running silently behind their account, the Super User (aka sudo) Viruses cannot maliciously attack the system in any devastating way without using this super user, which is normally inaccessable (n.b. this also applies to UNIX systems like BSD and Linux)
Additional to its security advantages Macs work better with accounts and administration due to this multi-user interface (as opposed to PCs, which are "personal" and therefore have one and only one user - though Microsoft attempted to change this it didn't work nearly as well as UNIX)
Also Macs have built in;
The ability to make pdf documents - free!
Some really awesome programming software
The Bomb - which proves that a crashing program will not cause a whole system crash (it is a program which just crashes, and that's it)
Lots of intuitive software, which does everything you ever wanted to do, simply.
The most amazing GUI (graphic user interface) ever!

Though; my next computer is going to be Linux, as it is completely customisable, I am still trying to decide between suse-Linux and BSD - though of course there are many more which are avaliable. Also, It's free!!!

I like Windows most, Mac can run just 10% off all my games, that's not enough for me.
and I don't need Mac for editing pictures and movies, Windows can handle that fine.

Mac is a lot better if you have photo editing that needs to be done and the computers are more reliable but that equals high price

PC's are cheaper but have less protectiong overall,But 90% of people have them.If i had the money i would go mac but since i dont i have a PC

Mac is better for laptops, they are light, last longer on battery, and has good memory

PC are overall better since lots of things are created for PCs. Games, Programming programs, and more making it better than others.

Also Mac has so many limited things like design, color, that i prefer PC overall

My sis just started doing a graphic design course at uni and she gets free things that she needs for uni coz of her disability and she got a mac notebook and i have to say that laptop loooks amazing and is super light. seriosuly every time i see it i drool...but its worth over £2,000! i didn't even know they made laptops that expensive!
i prefer pc though mainly because of the cost and when i have problems i can aways find a solution through google and i was trying to do that for my sis when she had probs wid mac and i couldn't find any help on the web.
