    The classic debate...
    I prefer PC's, I admit, they have sooo many holes (Windows), but as a gamer, I have a need for speed and performance in games, not to mention an OS that CAN play games older than 5 years. Mac's are great for designing games, houses, etc... But as a 16 year old gamer... I have absolutely no use for them...
    Rebuttals?

    Heh...trust me. Dave isn't going to be interested in rebuttals. He, like everyone else, got tired of X vs. Y wars a long time ago.

    personaly i do not see the point to get a mac, i can match the power easly and well some people say it is easyer to do things. well i am a linux user so i do not have the problems with indows and i can see the real power of a mac. and yes they were good for 3d design and all and making videos but i do not see that any more. i play many games in my spare times and i cant see any point to get a mac for new games at all. and editing. no way i can totaly kick a macs ass in editing even with the same software and all. and ok it has dual processing. so waht, i got my amd 2800 and i have more MIPS so i dont see any pooint to dish 4 grand fora mac when i can get my total setup for 2 so yea there is my rant and dont mind my spelling

    Well, Macs are really good from a desktop publishing and multimedia point of view in some areas (MP3s etc) as I used one at uni in the labs and it got the job done.

    I wouldn't own a Mac myself though, I like my PC more with Linux and Windows

    id buy a mac, but theyre wayyy too expensive - recent price drops included.

    it wouldnt replace my pc though, theres alot of things a windows machine can do slightly better than a mac, as well as vice-versa.

    really fancy an ibook though - still abit pricey.

    Number one reason I don't use a mac:

    I do alot of sound recording/editing/mixing/mastering etc. There was a time when Mac was the only way to go for this. But the software and hardware finally caught up on pc and even surpassed alot of what was on the mac. Sure I could use a mac now, but the equivalant software for what I do on a pc would force me to sell a kidney.
