As a Producer/Movie Artist I understand that a Mac can be better suited, but overall it doesn't come close to a well installed Windows machine imo. :)
I would love to try Mac OS if it was available for retail use but I don't want a waaay too overpriced computer around it with a 500,- apple logo on it..
If you have not experienced mac... how can you have an opinion on what is better???? Personally, i do not think my iMac was overpriced at all.... I paid a bit for it, however, i have not had one drama with it in 3 years. No need to defrag, scan disk etc etc etc etc etc or any of that shit... The mac does everything on its own... It is a far more intelligent machine than pc that lets you use the computer, plug things into it, add things, take things away all without asking you in prompts and getting silly messages that are impossible to understand unless your a computer geek!
Mac is worth the money... In the three years i have had it, it has never skipped a beat, and it still runs as quick as it did when i pulled it out of the box....
I have had pcs in the past, and they are wicked for 6 months, but when you start putting programs on it, it slowly shits itself over time

Well i'm a geek so I know how to properly configure Windows and what hardware specs mean. So Getting a Mac for 2000,- or a PC for 2000,- is a simple choice for me. You can get twice the speed from the PC for that price.
I'm not saying Mac is bad, it's just overpriced imo.
My PC with Vista x64 (which tons of people hate or burn to the ground) is running for around 3 years now, no problems what so ever. And if there were problems they were caused by myself and not by the PC. It's just a matter of how you work with it.
I tend to agree with you on some points dude.. For the money, on paper you get a better "spec" with PC. However, this in turns balances out. If you get a PC with the same specifications as a make (so the pc will be cheaper), the Mac will "kick arses first and take names later", it will "take the pc to school", it will "tear it a new arsehole", it will "poke the pc's eye out and skull fuck it!" and what other analigies i want to come with to say the iMac will dominate.....
A you are a computer geek and know how to tune your pc so its running smoothly, it is your advantage to buy a pc. However, for 99% of the world's population, we can't do this. That's where that Mac excels. Its for the person that doesn't want to have to "tune up" windows or the pc, or deal with weird messages. Its for the person that wants a computer to do what it was paid to do... And that is to sit on the desk, and make life easier!

Mac's shit on PC in my opinion... I will never go back to pc.... NEVER!!!!
I would have to agree with you timmy. I am using Windows XP only because I have no choice in the matter right now. Just saving funds to upgrade to the best MAC available!!
Once I convert, I will never look back at Windows accept of course to keep in touch with today's new technology. The fact that my friends have had MACs for years and never had issues with crashes, infections really says something about Apple. However, once a companies product gets put up so high on a platform like the Iphone G4 and then rushed to market, then quality of products does begin to go down. I saw that happening with the Windows OS platform software they were trying to come out with every 2years and the shit got worse, not better (Example: Vista). Steve Jobs should at least keep his loyal customers happy with a recall instead of just giving a stupid rubber cover for the phone. People pay the extra money for reliability, but I didn't spend $300-500 on a phone just for it to disconnect me in the middle of an important call.
anywho, that is my 2 cents on the subject. To hell with Microsoft, LOL

I was a Windows user (and I'm still use Windows, but only at work). I just bough a MacBook to learn Mac OS X and definetly I prefer to use Macintosh. More powerful, faster, efficient. In three words: it just works.
