Apple or PC?

What do you prefer?

I've only ever had PCs but I'm thinking that the next computer I buy may be an Apple.

I just love the look of them and everyone raves about them...also, Windows just pisses me off sometimes. The only thing will be getting used to the new OS.

What about you guys? Any converts from PC to Apple or Apple diehards? Or do you loooove PCs and would never look elsewhere?

I have converted to Apple. I have an iBook G4 and it's awesome. No problems at all. When my PC is finished, I'm going with Mac. Once you go Mac, you don't go back.

3D animation is still primarily in the realm of PCs, just to make a slight correction. Video editing is also waffling a bit these days. I've been seeing a lot of PC-based Avid systems these days, instead of Mac.

Personally, I hate Macs. I hate how expensive they are. I hate how tightly controlled they are with their hardware. But I also fall under the realm of an "experienced user." Those who don't fall under that category and just primarily use their computer for internet surfing, with the occasional word processing and photo edit can probably use either platform, really.

putting aside your personal hate for macs...

those who just use the computer for web surfing and word processing probably aren't "experienced users" and don't want to (or don't know how to) set up windows & deal with all the crap it gives you. Using a mac for these basic things requires no real computer knowledge for it to run very well without breaking.


I love my powerbook

I just got my iBook G4 last Sunday. I'm still trying to get use to the OS, being that all I have ever used was Windows. I'm loving not having to deal with Internet Explorer crashing on me while surfing the internet.

So far I love my new mac.

Macs.

I started looking into them after I got an iPod. That was so easy to use, it got me interested enough to check it out further. I ended up getting a PowerBook and I haven't regretted it. No problems with it all. I use it mainly for school work (word processing) and some graphic presentations. I find it is very easy to use, especially after years of using a PC and Windows.

And as soon as can afford it, I'm going to replace my desktop (which hasn't been used for three months) with an iMac.

No. I know somebody else who has never has that happen. But he really knows what he's doing. And I'm under the impression you actually know what you're doing, as well

But from someone who doesn't use a computer for much beyond a little work or a little play, Macs are much more user friendly.

I have a PC and have only ever had one problem with it. I got a new hard drive and am still using the same PC. It's almost 6 years old!

I have a Toshiba laptop that never crashes.

Stupid question for Mac users (I use a Mac at work but it's the really old OS 9.0) in case this is different in newer versions. In Windows, you have that toolbar at the bottom of your screen where you see all your windows when you minimize them. Do you have that in the new Mac OS, or something like it? I hate how in the old Macs, when you minimize things they clutter all over the bloody desktop. Drives me insane.

Yes, there is a dock at the bottom (or you can move it the top, sides, whatever).

Well, that was my point. Macs actually frustrate me, because they're too easy. But, I guess, for most people, that's a selling point.
