I love my macs. It comes with photoshop which PCs don't, you only need half the RAM to run OSX just as well as Windows, and the Mac OSX has a special feature that makes my 160 GB HD the equivalent of a 500 GB windows HD!











I actually do love my 13" MBP. I know I paid a premium for it, but Macs have always worked for me. For the things I do, Macs work with a minimum of fuss, and I love how integrated they are. My email, calendars, and contact info on my Mac are synced with my iPhone with everything pushed. I've also found that Mac developers often create extremely polished products. For example, I have a program called Papers which automatically organizes all my research PDFs with meta data and I can add notes and keywords to them. The amount of time it has saved me is incredible.

I use both for different reasons.

Desktop is my gaming computer, MBAir is my school computer.

If I HAD to choose one or the other, it'd probably be a iMac.

I was >< close to buying a Macbook last winter as a personal laptop. But then I got an Eee and decided $400 was more appealing to me. Since I just bought a new desktop workstation (running Seven), no OSX at home. I'd love to get my hands on a Macbook to test in my work environment to see if I could make it work there. Not going to buy unless I'm sure.

I have a handbuilt PC running Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Cost? $1,300 after Ultimate.
Fiance has a Macbook Pro, running Leopard. Cost? $1,300 (used)

M4D tyte Leopard has frozen, randomly shutdown, and gotten stuck during boot countless times. My Vista has an issues when I exit CS:S, but never freezes. It used to shutdown alot, but it was the powerlines in the old house.

My PC is 4x the computer the Mac is. My mom's Gateway was 550$ at Best Buy and has the same stats as her Macbook, and is just as reliable.

PC fo sho!

(Disclaimer: My bad luck with macs spans 3 total units, 2 of which were stupidly slow for the cost and the current that make Windows 32 bit Vista look somewhat reliable. I seem to be in the minority however.)

The Windiws or Linux fanbois are just as bad as the Mac fanbois when they constantly bitch about overpriced this and underperforming that.

I've got Windows XP Pro, Ubuntu, and OS X set up on my Macbook Pro. It's very convenient to have all three on one machine; makes life at work simpler.
