    In my opinion, a Mac is the only computer for home use. Businesses have information technology offices that are paid to fix PC issues, but I simply don't have time. My MacBook just works.

    I would chose windows as you cant play games on a MAC, nor is their alot of software.

    Depends.

    If you don't know much about computers and want to get as much as possible done given your limited experience, the Mac for sure. Most hassle-free general solution for home.

    If you're a 'power user', Windows for sure. Most flexible general solution for home.

    If you're a total nerd, Linux for sure. Most open-source, tweakable solution for your basement.

    I doubt the smart ones will do anything like that. A RAV4 is enough evidence of the sort of guy a Mac fan is... :p

    Get a P.C. It's compatible with more things, like the Zune, and your old ISA cards. Also, Vista has improvements to XP such as LiveSearch and Windows Sidebar. Nowhere on a MAC is Windows LiveSearch or Windows Sidebar

    Yeah that is true. To the OP on a Mac you'll also find that buying music from Wal-Mart's online music service is impossible. Another reason to buy a Windows PC.

    PCs are for serious work. Mac is for making photo albums. You know what to do.

    If you enjoy doing things with your computer; get a Mac.

    If you enjoy doing thing to your computer so it can replace an Xbox; get a PC.

    If you have an unhealthy affection for and bond with your computer; get Linux. :D

    I keed, I keed!

    In reality, it all depends on what you want to do with your computer.

    For example, if you are a serious gamer, get build a custom PC.

    Very good point.

    Fixing PCs on the company time is a nice way to make a living! :)

    At home, it is just a waste of time.

    Well said.

    Except, what if we don't have a basement? ;) :p :D

    Ouch!

    LOL! :D

    Well said too! :)

    Heck, if you can't decide, just get both! :D

    Since I have switched to Mac full time (Getting close to 2 years now) the only thing I have found that I needed windows for was Orange box, which I run in bootcamp. I just didn't want to wait a month for it to come out on the PS3.

    I use a Mac at work all day, and I use a Mac all night at home. I 100% refuse to use a Windows machine at the office, and I will ONLY use Windows at home for a game or 2.

    Running a PC is just silly honestly ... want games, get a console. The only time I could see it is the fee apps that don't have a compatible version for the Mac. (For certain industries)

    Not to mention the fact that since the switch to Intel MACs have become the leader in viruses and spyware! Also, MACs can't network with PCs and you can't view Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, or Excel spreadsheets.

    To someone asking this question, I'd say get a PC. No question.

    And as someone else said, oh no, not again.

    Cheers.

    Yes, because that's a great analogy. :rolleyes:
    :D Don't forget the Start Menu:p
    To both posts above, what about a simple thing like Bootcamp?;)

    :D:D</sarcasm>
    Seriously though, if you need special programs, having Windows is a must. Although there's nothing stopping you from using Bootcamp.
    I agree. Let's all go out and have a drink!:D

    MS DOS is for people who care why their computer doesn't work

    Linux is for people who care why their computer works

    Mac OS X is for people who don't care why their computer works

    Windows is for people who don't care why their computer doesn't work

    Should really be:

    If you don't know much about computers then Windows.
    If you don't know much about computers and you have a lot of money then Macintosh.
    If you are a power user with a lot of time to kill then Linux.
    If you are a power user who doesn't like rebuilding kernels then Macintosh (you can always run Windows in a VM sandbox).

    :)
