    Between the two I'd say iChat wins. Aren't they releasing a new beta AIM client that supposedly doesn't suck as bad?

    I'll third the vote for iChat. Better integrated, updated more often, etc. Pretty much better in every way than the AIM client.

    The Mac AIM client is in serious need of an update. And until they do, I reccommend iChat.

    Wow, you were actually able to find/download AIM for Mac? I never could, so I just stuck with ichat until college started. Then switched to Adium, and haven't looked back.
