Never owned a Mac so I couldn't honestly say but I've heard that they're super reliable.

Well, I have owned both PC and Mac and in the 8 years or so that I have had my PC's online, I have never had ANY virus problems cause I takes care o' my babies!!! Win98 IS out of date soooo.....upgrade before you claim that mac is better.
I love my XP and my Me.....What's more is I am a musician and have consequently been barraged by other musicians who insist that Mac is the way to go.....but why mess with a good thing? My PC with XP (a 3200+ AMD and 1.5 g's of RAM) can run up to eight music software programs at once without crashes or slowdowns due to processing, and can play sounds out of nearly all of them at once (why anyone would need anything stronger than that is beyond me)
But I am also a photographer.....and I'm sorry but any PC(well equiped) can handle multiple graphics apps at once as well.....so why go with a MAC when you simply have less options when it comes to compatibility and software???? That just doesn't make sense......

Point being....you can't really claim that one is better than the other untill you've loaded one of each up to the brim with power.....
then tell me that there's something one can't do that the other can........

sometimes people don't defend something because they like it, they defend it for something else (like if they DON'T like the other option)
I like the Windows machines but i think Mac's are a lot less hassle (especially the OS X with no viruses)

wow, this thread got out of hand...

And I'm gonna say something about the whole 3000x software thing...
HOW MUCH OF THAT SOFTWARE DO YOU OWN, OR EVEN USE???

Yeah, it's reeeeaaaaally special to say you have so much software available to you, but it's not special when you only have five or six of those titles in your possesion.

and now i'm gonna say something to MusicMakesDaMan, something you said made me laugh... oh yeah, it was when you said that "...any PC(well equipped) can handle multiple graphics apps at once..." Well, if 'any' PC can handle it, why would it have to be well equipped?

And that's one of the points mac users are trying to make. Macs ARE well equipped, you don't HAVE to modify them to make them work well. I mean, my only experience with PC's (and mind this is a daily experience i'm forced to live) is if they don't have a certain OS, or a certain CPU speed, or a certain amount of useable RAM, they aren't worth a toot!

And yes, this is all a personal choice, and people choose the computer that is right for them, and i'm sure this Mac vs Pc debate will be around as long as there is another OS other than the Mac OS.

so youre saying you can have a bunch of software for your mac with less software available, but i can only have 5 or 6 pieces of software for my pc even though there is more software available? that makes absolutely no sense, all that im saying about the fact that the PC has more software than the Mac is that the PC is more diverse, what can you do with a Mac? video and photo editing, thats about it pcs have more software and are therefore more useable, they have more flexibility

and i have close to 400 software titles on my computer (if you count games, and i do) so dont say that you will only use 5 or 6, i have tons, and yes, some, i dont use that often, but others i use every day (ad-aware, norton system works, end it all, etc)

dont say there are no viruses for the macs as there are, such as auto-start and sevendust

case and point here ->mac viruses


all i gotta say is that if the mac is so much better why dont they outsell the pc? why dont more people use them? why are there waaay more pcs installed than macs?

dont try and say "macs outsell pcs" and list a source, because we all know its bunk, maybe for 1 day sometime when there is a lunar eclipse, solar flares and all the planets are aligned, for 1 hour the mac might outsell the pc, but as of now, it has never happened and probably will never happen, and IN FACT apple was so broke in the early 90s microsoft had to bail them out and pay steve jobs (or mike jobs, cant remember) to come back and save the failing company

so youre saying that its the hardware that makes it crash? bwahahahahah go back to school retard
