It all depends on your views. We can only suggest. It's up to you. What is your budget? What qualities are you looking for, screen size, HDD, RAM, GFX, etc.

We've had hundreds of threads on this topic in the past; it tends to go well for a relatively long time (compared to some other fora) until you end up with one person who particularly dislikes/disagrees with another person's reason for preferring either an Apple PC, Windows or Linux PC.

To save a lot of talk, here's a summary:
Different people like different things (at different amounts), and use things differently from each other for different reasons. Some people care more about things like, say, aesthetics, and might go for an Apple PC because they like the minimalist aesthetic (personally I'm not a fan).
Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0

First off MAC=/=Mac

If you're talking about Windows VS OS X then it's all preference. Some people like Windows, others prefer OS X, and some prefer Linux. On this forum you'll find that more prefer Windows over OS X.

I primary use two PC's, one is a desktop computer I built myself running Windows and various distros of Linux, my other PC is my MacBook Pro that runs OS X 10.7 and Windows 7.
Core i5 2500K - Asus P67 EVO - Gigabyte GTX 970 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 250GB Samsung 840 EVO - Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Mid 2014 Retina MacBook Pro 13.3" - 2.6GHz core i5 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 128GB - OS X El Capitan
Sony PS3 & PS4 500GB || iPhone 6s 64GB iOS 9
