    That is a rare "issue" that doesn't seem to be related to whether or not it's a mac or PC. There are a bunch of incidents I've seen online (and one of each in person).

    The only reason I switched to macs was because I went through 3 new PC laptops in 2 years.

    I've had my powerbook G4 for over 3 years and haven't encountered a single problem with it.

    I did the PC thing for over 10 years. So I've tried both and am not one of the blindly fanatical mac guys that doesn't REALLY know what they're talking about.

    I have both. I much prefer the aesthetic quality of the iMac, but I hate it when mine freeze up.

    My home laptop is a PC because I have to use PCs at work and it's easier if home is the same. Before I got this laptop, I was using a 10 year old Mac (pre iMac) at home and it was a pain having to switch between different keyboard shortcuts etc.

    I own a PC myself, more due to the fact that I play more video games than a Mac can handle.

    Otherwise, my family tends to have bad luck with PCs, and would probably do better with Macs. They own three, one of which is a Vista that's replacing an old XP that's had so many Trojan Horses on it that you'd think we manufacture them. Another used to be a Windows ME (aka the worst OS ever), but then got upgraded to an XP, with which it continues to struggle with, as it's technically not made to work an XP. This is also partly due to a series of viruses that that one managed to acquire. Basically, if it's a Windows product, we break it.
