    PC, because I don't have money to burn on proprietary hardware at an obscene premium. And in typical Western OCD, I like choosing every bit of my computer :geek:

    That's not an anti-mac vote though, because I love Mac OSX. I'm gonna try to hack it onto my PC when I get the time, it's so pretty :)

    PC. But I do like apple's designs. Just can't afford them. Although they are more tempting now that I can load xp on them.

    PC- because even if I did want an over-styled powerhouse desktop, I'd rather get this.

    I think many would like a mac but simply cannot because of the cost. I would love to own a mac pro but the price is outrageous. However... I do have a macbook alongside by PC.

    PC. I like the control, speed and price. Plus using OS X is like being stabbed in the eye.

    fanboys are just people who can't afford both (and are bitter about it)

    /hugs MBP and PC.

    Sorry for being OT, but it makes me proud to still see Morrowind on the list for PC gamers.

    I actually quite like both. I have a PC for gaming and a Mac Mini that I use for web development and general browsing. Both are pretty good for what I use them for, and the Mini isn't that expensive really, especially not when you factor in the form size.

    Mac. I can't get on with Windows at all anymore. I find it infuriating. That doesn't mean I don't like PCs, I just hate Windows with a passion.

    I really want a new MBP.

    I like windows, and I like being able to afford computers, so PCs for me :)

    OMG where are all the wires on the Mac side?

    Meh.. It's been said before, Mac is just a fashion statement.

    And how could anyone possibly use Office for Mac? It has to be one of the worst programs I've ever used - worse than realplayer.

    It's virtually the same as any other version of Office ever created.

    I'm a PC (somebody told me so of the people sound like they're saying "I'm a pu**y", made it a hundred times funnier).

    I was over at Isis lab yesterday and I say them retouching the latest Reiss catalogue. For people that get around £150 an hour I was expecting more than Power Mac G5s and original 22 ACDs.

    PC for the sheer customisability, Mac for the sheer functionality.

    This, except I don't care for the customisability anymore because I just can't be bothered. Mac Pro at work, Macbook at home. Bliss :hip:
