I don't understand the terrible prejudice everyone has against Macs. "They randomly shut down - they suck!" Every computer manufacturer has had problems with some line at one point or another. Case in point - Dell batteries. I've officially switched to Apple OS X from Windows Vista. I've been running the latest candidate of Vista for some time on my iMac using Boot Camp, and I can honestly say that I now definitely prefer OS X over Vista. With regards to spywell's comment above, I've never heard of Macs breaking down "very easily". As a matter of fact, Macs are known for their reliabilty and ease of use. And while there may not be unlimited customization options for a new mac, it's not the end of the world. When you buy a mac system it is designed in such a way as to be well rounded, and perform well in almost any task. Therefore you won't find a mac with a rediculously slow 1.66ghz processor (unless you go Mac mini) because that's just unnecessairly low. While replacing Apple's hardware is sometimes not easy, it is certainly not impossible, and numerous tutorials can be found online. The upgrades will work fine as long as they are certfied by Apple. With regards to gaming, yes, it is true that there are limited amounts of titles out for macs, but that is changing. With the move to intel processors Macs are now capable of easily keeping up with PC's in the gaming world, and more games are being ported for OS X. To rebutt the final comment, a Windows machine cannot do everything that a mac can, whereas a mac can do everything that a windows machine can. You can't (despite ongoing attempts, search the web for hackintosh) install OS X onto a windows machine and get it to run at native speed. But you can install Windows onto a Mac, and get it to run perfectly native. That was the real reason I ended up getting a Mac, because they can do both. Originally when I bought my mac I was planning on running Windows most of the time, but OS X grew on me to the point where I have offically switched, and now denounce windows as an inefficient and unfriendly operating system.
P.S. "Gay circle of death" ... I have no idea what he's talking about...
