PC's hard-core, Old and good with guns (games). Mac is young, unexsposed to viruses and war.

LOL, good one, but ironically not the best point for comparisons, because without that very brilliant hacker he would have gotten nowhere in that movie.

In my opinion PC: Can be vastly more unique, very often can run winOS/linux distros/hackintoshes Far more variant hardware Can look how you want it to look Way better range of peripherals And IMHO I prefer all variants of WinOS - to macs

Cons - if using winOS Far more susceptible to attacks - due to the high amount of computers running some flavour of winOS. The registry - in itself not a bad design, but applications just neglect completely removing all their entries during uninstal and install.

cons - running some flavour of linux Takes a while getting used to not full range of hardware takes a while to get used to sudo and doing a lot over the commandline

cons - running mac utterly hilarious price wine>mac version of said thing not very much third party software as opposed to both linux and win ugly interface (yes I consider the mac UI to be ugly and bloated - with the exceptoin of window borders - which aero just overdoes, the same goes for the UI of their programs - itunes anyone?

I can't say about OSX 10.5, but IMO 10.4 is easily the least bloated OS i've used. It even runs better than XP on much lower specs. My 1.25Ghz G4 "feels" damn near just as responsive on the desktop as the PC in my sig does.

You can also run Linux on Macs as well, and there are tons of open source programs out there, you just have to look a little deeper to find them.

Its all about your opinion though, which ever you prefer using is the one thats better for you.

I think you misunderstood me here. I'm not saying that OSX is slower or that it has more bloatware or anything. I'm only referring to the UI as a whole and how it looks instead of how it acts.

Yep, more or less since they went to more normal processor types (I'm sure there were powerpc linuxes out there as well, just not very common) The moment they went on intel, people could also install windows on macs.

Some people use that as plus point for the Mac. I know some Mac users who say you don't have much of a problem with games on the Mac since you can run Windows on it. But if your going to run Windows on it why would you spend so much on a Mac when you could of just had Windows.

Not to mention you actually have to also buy that windows disk, and have an xp or vista partition take up place on the pc. While many people who use linux have a similar setup, they pay squat for their linux install.
