PC

I dont like the feel of Macs, nor do I care for the design. However, I do wish windows was more reliable.

I find windows very reliable. I'm for pc because of availability and practicality.

Does that make you cool, cause you fit in? I'm just curious as that's the only reason why having the same thing as your friends makes sense.

CHEMMY..............what in the hell are you talking about? DUDE! LISTEN TO ME! I own a IBM compatible because its all I've ever been around. It's more practical for me because of that. This matter is not a question of my integrity. All I did was reply to STEELER's poll.

I was a die hard PC user for a long time, but about 2 years ago i saw the light now all i use are Mac's.

Really it's all personal preference, Mac's and PC's both have their advantages and disadvantages

I miss using a Mac. The OS is so superior, IMO.

But, PCs are cheaper, and have more products available for them.

And.. one button mouse? WTF are you talking about? Macs can use other mouses (or mice). I used to have a kensington 4 button track ball on a mac. I also remember before the advent of the mouse, working on an orange/black monitor, hehe. The sh*** old days.... I miss them

My preference is pc. Only because it's what I've always used. With that said, a few years ago, I thought mac was going to crash and burn. However, they are still here, and seem to now be a more noteable contender.

What are the advantages? Games / programs are harder to find and more expensive. And macs don't even run all of the programs that windows does. Correct? I just want to know why anyone would want one. Are they faster? I don't know too much about them.
