Honestly, I'm surprised this topic hasn't been started yet :P

I use Windows personally, but prefer Linux. I used to despise macs, but now I'm indifferent because I don't utilize any of it's specialties such as multimedia creation and whatnot. However, I am going to invest in one so I can make some iPhone apps.

So, what do you use?

They don't get viruses, but they can still get trojans & malaware. Most of the time Apple uses "they can't get PC viruses"

I use a PC, but I'm getting a Mac for college. Macs just have superior build quality, and last longer that PCs. They also don't get bogged down through normal use like PCs do.

I agree, Macs are better quality both in hardware and software. I just laugh at the people who get macs because "it looks nice"...

Looks are important though!

People come into REI and buy a pair of hiking boots just because they like the way they look. I die a little on the inside every time....

There'll be virusses for mac soon...
They can't get pc virusses but there were no mac virusses around because there were not a lot of macs around. People who make virusses want to infect a lot of people, so they choose to make a windows virus. This will change as the amount of macs around rises.
There not a simply OS perfect. There'll always be security gaps, no matter what you're told.

About the hardware in a mac: you can buy a windows pc with the same specs for half of the cash...
So the rest of the cash you spend on buying a mac is for the name and looks :P
But correct me if I'm wrong :)

I'm Pro-Windows, but I may be getting a Mac soon. About saying that you can buy a Windows computer with the same specs for half the cash, it's irrelevant because they're on two different operating systems, and each of them handle processes differently/more efficiently

Whats the difference between a Ford Mustang GT and a BMW M3? The Mustang costs $40k and the M3 $80k. Mustang has a faster 0-60 time than the M3. Sure, a Mustang can keep up with an $80k M3 but the M3 can keep up with a $120k Porsche.

The point I'm trying to make here is that yes, it costs more but with the extra price you get some great features. Apple's customer service is the best out there. Build quality? Exceptional. It is a luxury computer and you pay that price. Macs also last incredibly long on battery power and best a majority of the PC laptops out there.

I have always loved windows, 'cept I love Itouches/IPods
I love how simplistic the ipods/itouches are, but I don't really like that quality in my computer. I like to discover new things about my computer, and it helps my burn time a lot. Windows is also amazing for business'y and professional stuff, which makes me love it even more, even though I'm in high school

I personally use a custom made computer with the top notch quality. I used to despise mac because of the classes I used to take on computer technology and repair. Pc are extremely simple to repair if you have the proper parts and tools (basically a phillips screw driver) whereas a mac (model depending, mostly the new ones) the screen is the computer and you have to ship it into a company that is certified to repair it unless you happen to have that top notch training (very unlikely for common trade)
