Macs are WAY better than PC's because of their stability. If your computer isn't allowing you to do anything, what good is it? Mac's are better at graphics work i.e. photoshop, illustrator, maya, etc... Macs have better standard equipment i.e. Nvidia and ATI cards, High quality monitors (built in or not) And Macs have more software tailored just for macs.
PCs, are way better than macs due to their compatability. das about it...
Macs are worse than pcs due to their lack of compatability, however, Mac OS X "panther" is attempting to solve that by coming loaded with more drivers and such. Macs are harder(nearly impossible) to modify. And sometimes, even though i'm against taking your computer apart and messing with it, mods can do wonders fer yer health. Macs also cost alot more, and i beleive this is the biggest reason of all that more people don't have them. Their philosophy is why buy $6,000 worth of computer equippment that's just gonna be bested in three months when I can build a computer with the same stats for less than half of that?
It's all about quality
And finally, PCs are worse than Macs because they freeze. Often. More than I would expect from something I payed cash money for. And, the PC world is full of third part hardware/software and that is good to a point. But not everything works the way it's supposed to. i.e. recently, i bought a 512mb keychain flash media doohicky. And when I tried to move pictures from my computer to the Yearbook computer, I got an error message saying that the media card was not compatible with all versions of win98. How many are there? I thought there was only one. And, face it. More people use PC's for games and entertainment than anything else.
In my opinion, computers were designed for working. The first computer was not built to play pong. It was a calculator that just happened to take up an entire room. But it was still a calculator. They used it for working purposes.
So this is why I choose to use a Mac.
