If money was no object would you go for a PC or a Mac? My wife has owned several PCs but now has an iMac and says she will always stay with Apple in future because she thinks they are much better than PCs...easier to use and more intuitive she reckons plus much faster and better graphics. My teenage son is also a convert - he always goes on the Mac when he can and only bothers with my PC when he has no other option. My brother in law has also just got a Mac and he says he thinks they make PCs seem primitive in comparison. I run a PC which I assembled myself. It's in a modded Antec PlusView case I bought in 2004 and is currently running an AMD Phenom II x6 1090T processor. Self build means you can get the system exactly how you want it down to every little detail, which is only an option if you run a PC. So for me this includes a Microsoft Natural keyboard, Philips HDMI monitor, Logitech 2.1 speakers with good power, and coloured lights to illuminate the inside of the partly transparent case. I am not anti-Apple and in fact run some Apple software such as the Safari web browser and iTunes. I have had a few goes on the Mac - however unlike everyone else in the family I don't think I have been bitten by the Mac bug. I might get a Mac mini in future but the odds are I won't. I like the versatility of swapping system parts whenever I want. The only drawback with my system just now is that it's still running XP which has memory limitations, but it will be upgraded to Windows 8 plus more memory later this year. I've considered changing to a touchscreen at the same time but probably won't because of something called Gorilla Arm!! So, PC or a Mac, which is preferable to you?
