    I have an IBM laptop for work. I actually got rid of my personal laptop about a year ago because I just wasn’t using it anymore. I’ve been chewing on buying a Mac desktop for a while now (since I already have a laptop from work) but I haven’t been able to bring myself to drop the cash…and now that we’re buying a house I’ll probably never get one.

    I was planning on getting a mac for about a year. Finally I decided against it and got a pc laptop. My main reason for staying with PC was cost. Not cost of the computer, but the software. I use a lot of design software (dreamweaver, adobe creative suite, etc.) and that stuff is bloody expensive. I just couldn’t afford to go out and buy all new mac versions of software that I paid so much money for only 2 years ago for PC (I didn’t get mac/pc versions of the software because, again, it was more expensive at the time).
    I considered running a double platform ont he mac and installing windows on it so that I could use my software, but isn’t that defeating the purpose of having a mac??
    My friend got a mac around the same time as me, and she still uses her ancient desktop pc because she doesn’t have software for the mac.
    That being said, I love my new laptop, but my next one (hopefully) will be a mac.

    I’ll stick to what I’m more familiar with. Mac’s are just plain simpler & more “idiot” proof… for me anyways =)

    I currently have an older IBM Thinkpad laptop. Plan is to replace it with a Macbook, as soon as I can afford to do so.

    I just replaced my old Dell laptop with a Macbook, and I love it. Absolutely no problems, no annoying Windows issues, and it’s really really fast. I highly recommend a Macbook if you’re considering it. I prefer laptops for their flexibility.

    I’ve used both Mac and PC systems in the past 10 years, but all of them have been running Linux. When you do that, switching between a Mac and a PC is easy because the operating system is the same!

    I am a big time PC gamer, so Macs are out for me. Although if copy protection on PC games continues going in the direction it is, I might have to rethink my purchases…

  15. I do hard-core number crunching on my systems for my PhD research so a PC desktop works best for me. You just can’t get the same kind of power in a laptop.
    As for Mac vs PC desktop, the hardware is almost the same these days, but there is a lot more choice on the PC desktop side.

    Just to clarify, the laptop I use is my work laptop, but I would love to get one of my own! We just have a desktop at home.

  21. We are primarily on a MAC format at work due to our software/editing programs and their MAC compatibility. I prefer a PC because I’m backwards from everyone else & find troubleshooting a PC much easier than a MAC. Our home computers are more user friendly and reliable than the ones I work on.
    MACs ARE prettier though….

      What kind of things have you had to troubleshoot on a Mac?

      • Mainly issues involving media storage & corrupt media files. On a MAC, finding the corrupt file & disposing of it can be tedious. You have to sift through ALL of the OMFI files on any available drives & deal with them individually.
        I don’t encounter as many problems on our PCs because they seem to do a lot of self maintenance (depending on the programs installed).
        If I didn’t have to deal with stored media (which takes of an astronomical amount of space), I probably wouldn’t have these issues, regardless of format.
