I am a Computer Science major now currently enrolled at LMU, in a course called Operating Systems. Last semester, i finished a course called Interaction Design, the study of human computer interaction and how to build a good interface. This is a professional look at how operating systems are built, and the differences between them. At the end of the course, we will write our own OS's. Anyways, I have a new perspective on the debate between which is better PC or Mac. Macs tend to have more cache memory, which is expensive to build. That's why the cheapest new mac you can buy goes for over $1000. The cheapest new PC you can get varies by the manufacturer and goes for around $250. Apple pours much more effort in R &D, design and usability metrics and it shows in the retail price. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that Apple is a luxury computer manufacturer (just like a luxury car). So when you say, "I love my apple computer, and I laugh at anyone using Windows", that's the same pretty much as saying "I love driving my Mercedes-Benz, and I laugh at anyone driving a cheap Hyundai." (or some other no-frills economy car). Because when you get down to it, there's nothing a Mac can do that a PC can't potentially do -because both are written in C- its just that Macs are a lot nicer to use and have more cool features.
