    I use a combination of Mac, Windows, Linux for work and home. But I prefer Windows. Been using Windows for over a decade and I really don't feel compelled to switch to Mac full time.

    I switched to Mac and will never go back to Windows. My computer is 2yrs old, no anti virus, and no issues at all. Rock solid to this day. I've never had a windows based computer last 2yrs w/o any issues.

    Have to use a Dell for work as our EMR system is Windows-based. My MacBook Pro sits nearby and gets used as possible. Mac-only at home. Would never spend my own money on a PC.

    I have to use PCs for tax software and since I own the firm, its hard to to really get away from them. I think Macs are great though for the not so inclined users.

    PC has more variety in software (especially indy stuff), and I can afford a more powerful one for the same amount of money, which helps for both work (e.g. neural network simulations take a long time) and fun (3d graphics rendering), so i can't ever see myself spending money on a Mac due to more cost for worse hardware.

    I guess Macs are safer for web browsing since they're not targeted for viruses and such as often, but I know enough about computer nerd stuff to never get any malware, and have things set up so even if I get some I can kill the system drive without losing anything else, so I can, in theory, get rid of it quickly. I need to get the rest of my family switched over to Macs though, I'm getting tired of the endless task of cleaning out their PCs every single time I visit.

    Def PC...because I know how to use them and tweak them so never had any issues with mine. I'm so lost on a Mac it's not even funny.

    Mac is way too expensive. No enough value for the $.
    Plus Apple locks users into Apple proprietary stuff worse then Microsoft used to do.

    That's how long this thread went without someone making the inevitable value judgement of why one is better than the other, or in this case, inferior to the other.

    I don't think you can call it inferior in value. Not getting spyware and having a smooth sparkly experience IS value. Some people don't care if the CPU in their mac can only simulate 200 runs of a neural net per day vs. 300 on a PC of equivalent cost. They care that they don't have to know about computers and still stay spyware free, have less crashes (e.g. I think mac OS can do a much better job at recovering from driver crashes without bringing down the whole OS than windows can) and stuff like that. People care about something sleek, shows a certain image, etc etc. These things have value to people buying macs.
