    Sometime this year I will find the time to build the PC to end all PCs and Macs. It will be glorious.

    But it will still be a complete dog if you have anything to do with high end graphics or music. If you are a person whose living comes from the arts, you either already own or will eventually buy a Mac. The only exception is the lucrative make-believe world of PC gaming.

    Apparently you missed the part where I said it will be glorious. It will be all and end all. It will be God's PC.



















    and it will have cool green neon lights

    I didn't think it would be a consideration. I figured you already had the neon kit sitting on your workbench.

    oh no, I haven't started building it yet. I haven't even bought the parts. I'm just planning it out. I hope to have it done in about 6 months so that I can give my current desktop to my son before school starts.

    I don't think that is true at all. Both Macs and PCs are running on the same processors now, so there isn't a processing advantage either way. I can't speak to the music bit, but if you need to do heavy OpenGL pushing (for say CAD work), or if you are dealing with multiple MASSIVE textures while also driving a very large set of monitors, there is nothing better in life than having a few cards SLI-ed together, something (to my knowledge at least) you can't yet do on a Mac. So I think there, the advantage for the moment is actually to the PC, and that is solely due to SLI, something I'm sure Macs will be able to do soon.

    They are both good platforms, the are both human made, they both have problems. Most people after using both like the Mac OS better, however you might have situations where you are forced to run one are the other. I have to run Windows for work (CAD applications), and I like my setup. The home machines are Macs and PCs, and each has its uses.

    Yikes! Did you already buy it?

    They're updating iMacs to the latest penryn processors in a few weeks.
