    And for the record, I am not against Apple at all. I consider my iPhone one of the best technology purchases I have ever made. Even better than my Commodore Vic-20 with tape cassette drive which started me down this horrible computer path I still travel today. Ah, those were the days. Typing hundreds of lines of hexadecimal machine language code from Byte magazine just to play Pitfall.
    The only thing that matter is how useful the machine is to you. Compare how well each machine performs at tasks you need it to really exceed at. Can the machine perform the tasks you need it to? So start doing so research on what both machines excel at and decide whether or not they fit what you're looking for.

    Because there isn't one unless you're an audio or video editor.


    I only go back 11 years but I've had exactly zero virus's. I've never had a lot of money so all my systems over the years have been the economy self built models. I can't say I've ever had a problem with Windows or programs not working properly or not working at all and I spend a great deal of time online. I wish I could say the same for my ipod.

    Eh, I use a mac, and have since 1992. I've used PCs too, but have always come back to the mac. If you want to buy a Mac, then buy one. If you are looking to buy an inexpensive computer (which it sounds like you are,) then get a PC. I always came back to mac, because they "just work." These days, I think PCs are pretty much the same now. They just work.

    You just have to be careful about what you put in, because the same will come out.

    So that's where babies come from!!!!

    No DRice, I am not going to say that because I do not have the knowledge or authority to do so. I do know I (and I am speaking personally) have had less issues since I bought my iMac. Yeah, I am a gadget whore and love the small things (I have a Time Capsule and will probably be getting another Mac laptop soon and an iPhone if they move to Verizon) and Mac fills that need. The service, when I have called for my old laptop, has been great an not the "oh you don't know that" when I have talked with people about PC's.

    That is my take. Try it out at a Mac store, and if you do not like it get a PC you want.

    btw karma for the Commodore 64 with the Tape drive

    "Impressive" doesn't have anything to do with it. I'm not looking for a pat on the back for installing windows on my mac because it was hard. The point is a computer is a tool. My computer can do everything that any of the mainstreeam OS's out there can do without having to reboot. THAT is the point. It's the most complete tool out there.

    As, for the OP, I agree with PuckMonkey. Just buy a PC.

    Question for the Mac users: Is it easy to find all types of software torrents like it is for a PC?

    BTW: Long live the Commodore 64. There's a great emulator out there http://www.ccs64.com/ in case you don't want the memory of the C64 to die.

    I work on macs everyday with the adobe suite, but at home I bought a much more powerful laptop with the same money as I could a mac.I love macs but apple is way too over priced. No viruses and I still get my adobe suite on my pc. I'll save my benjamins and buy pc, just run and update your anti-virus program.

    That's a selling point? Is it easier to steal software on a PC?
