    I gotta go with PC, everything is still on the PC.... Whereas the Mac, you'll hard time finding every single thing you need....

    But i didn't say I don't like the Mac, it is still pretty cool....

    I prefer the pc, more useful to me. I also dislike how mac os works, don't think I could really get used to it.

    mac os is just a UNIX system which is really fun for programming and quite easy to get a hang of [​IMG]
    but i have to go for PC because a mac costs, what? like £1000 for a laptop that you could put together yourself for much less!

    Everyone who uses Mac tells me how awesome it is. I kind of believe them too, since they originally used PC. But until I experience it firsthand, I'm going to stick to PC.

    uh.. you cant put together a laptop yourself. you can get one custom made from a certain selection of parts. but thats about it. the extent of laptop modification is ram and harddrive. though some of the old dells and acer's you could swap in new cpu's ad gpu's.

    Im a bit of both. one main thing about mac osx i like is that its pretty prone to viruses, rare slowdowns and its look. im actually tempted to install leopard on my current laptop, over my fedora install. the main that draws me away from mac is its support for games is pretty small. but then again i barely find myself playing games on my desktop/laptop these days. with a laptop, i want something that doesnt slowdown, quick and easy to use and does all the things i want it to without much hassle. macs do that for me, apart from the hefty pricetag.

    I don't like Macs, and I hate Mac fanboys even more.

    I'm going to stick with windows considering my room mate (A multimedia undergrad) spent a ridiculous amount of money on an underpowered mac just to end up using boot camp and running windows the whole time. It just doesn't have the support for well.... anything I use.... For the money it costs to buy a mac I could build a computer twice the strength and emulate the (at most 2) apps for mac I might want.

    I'm a PC.

    I have a hackintosh netbook, but I never boot it in that configuration. I was like, what's the point?

    Learning the ins-and-outs of MacOS was about the same as learning to speak Norwegian. Unless you live in Norway, knowing the language will do you little good. Same thing about Macs. Unless you are in an environment where you need to power-use them, there's little point in learning the ins-and-outs.

    Macs are often seen being used by want-to-be-hip 30-somethings, elitist liberals, or folks from the Marketing department (a combination of the two).

    P.S. No offense to my Norwegian GBATemp brethren was intended.

    I'm a Windows XP guy.
    Vista is lame imo, as is 7.

    XP's got all I need, doesn't drain RAM, and is minimalistic. [​IMG]

    I have both but I mainly use my MacBook Pro. The PC, I built it myself for 360 hacking, 360 game burning/ripping and everything else that I might need a PC for like more game related hacking and stuff. (except pc gaming because I really don't like playing games on pcs or macs)
