    I've owed both, I find that my mac has lasted years longer then any of my pcs. SO yeah it's more expensive in the beginning, but they have good support and I only need a new computer every 5-6 years. as with the PC I was replacing it every 2.actually I don't know when I'm getting a new computer I've had this one for 4 years and I just need to add more memory, and probably use it for another 4 years.

    Why are you replacing your computer every 2 years? Unless you're a gamer you don't need to and even then you just slowly change out parts.

    I think Google will eventually crush Apple in the mobile device market. I think they have a superior business model.

    Edit: I also expect Google to challenge Microsoft in the PC OS market, eventually.

    I could be exaggerating, but all I know is I've had less problems with computer crashes with a mac then I ever did with a PC

    I'm on a PC desktop built by a nerd friend. I installed a Linux distro a few weeks ago and it's been going well. I've used a Toshiba laptop with XP in the past.

    The Apple cult creeps me out. I'm intrigued by their mobile products, though, and am interested in the iPad for academic use--searching libraries and reading academic journals, etc. in coffee shops instead of lugging books. I imagine that will be another 1 1/2 years or so before it's commonplace enough to get going. Also, I won't buy it until it has flash. And I will probably prefer to use the Android equivalent that I'm sure will be there in another 18 months.

    I think Apple is lame for being too cool for real buttons. I like real buttons. Practicality over aesthetics, please.

    I'm waiting for Asus to come out with a nice tablet. The flash and lack of buttons are deal-breakers. That and the AT&T plan.

    PC. I like to tinker and tweak both hardware and software. I also run Linux on my laptop.

    I also hate the Apple cult. Though when my sister gets a new macbook I'm going to steal her old one and try to learn the OS.

    This. And what someone above me said about the Apple cult. I *can* use Macs, when I have to, but I prefer PCs.

    I own an iMac and a MacBook. At work I have a PC.

    I'm on both. My macbook is nice and straight forward. It costs too much though and doesn't touch my PC for power. OSX is superbly slow for the hardware, but very efficient to use for general tasks. On the other hand I like windows 7, but not really its DRM which stops me recording TV shows to watch later (WTF???) and my linux is having catalyst driver issues (is clean 2D to watch TV too much to ask ATI?????).
