Been using PC since 1999, then got a mac last year and it was ok nothing special it cost 1000, I sold that and made a custom pc with win 7, am I happy, to right for that price ive built a brill machine with core i5 4gb ddr3 24" monitor and Lian-Li case, 4890 GC its loads more the power. the reason I switced all to briefly to Mac was to see what the fuss was about and then I met the apple fan boys, what a bunch of friggin losers, class example
my sisters pc is playing up (as ive posted about), as I was trying to fix it my sisters BF came in and said ahh thats the best thing about macs, they never brake, tbh he knows sh*te about pc's or macs and this level of childish 'apple cant do wrong' motive really drives me futher away from Apple. The fan bois make me sick, you slate an apple advert on youtube and there friggin there telling everyone how they invented the wheel.

Windows may have the same problem, but ive never seen any yet.
Im sure youll all slate me but Windows 7 is by far the best OS ive ever used, I havent had half the problems I used to have on vista.

To sum it up:
Mac OS is a fabolous OS, very fast, extremely easy to navigate, but its not practical for me using solidworks, VB.net and catia.
Win 7 has exceeded my expectations thats all I say about it .

Yes, the apple fan-boys reckon they have, as I said, the latest, greatest technology, when you make a gaming PC for the same price but somewhat 2x, 3x better than the same priced Mac. Its just ridiculous what they tell you to pay for a computer.

I have question to the mac men. you are allowing to install windows os in your machine using boot camp, then why not allowing us to install mac in pc? In short is not it a double stand?

Arc, you should refer to Mac OS's EULA for that answer. Each company have their own policy, so you can't say because Microsoft sells Windows to anyone that has x86/x64 computers, then Apple must do the same.

I vote for Windows 7.
Yeah, Leopard may be more stable and friendly, but I'll probably never buy a Mac for three reasons:
1) too much expensive
2) too old hardware
3) not so much expandible
Well, this is my own opinion.

Yes! Sad, but true. If they sold their os in market separately for any computer, sales maximization may lead to revenue maximization (lol).

Perhaps Mac is a hardware vendor and the os comes with the hardware eventually. Pretty, and so not for the common people like us.

I think we should make our own choice, live with it, and live and let live. You will not see me on a Mac forum selling Windows 7. I just want to compute in peace and be left alone with my my own kind....
Just my two cents.

Just a question re the Mac/Windows 7 debate: does the aesthetics actually matter. I mean, the Apple Macbook and the 27inch iMac look gorgeous. I am seeing a lot of rubbish on the Windows market, esp. with regards to laptops. For example, really nasty cheap keyboards (surely a decent keyboard is integral to a laptop); touch-pads etc.

Aesthetics does matter. I mean, look at some of the new laptops and note/netbooks that are coming out now. They look pretty damn god.

However, to my mind the ultimate driver is cost and competition. Apple has no competitors (you can only buy a Mac from Apple), so they are at liberty to set their own cost structures.

PC makers on the other hand have to survive in a much more diverse market. There is a vast selection available to the prospective PC buyer. Therefore, given that all other aspects (such as component costs) are equal, manufacturers must strive to reduce market cost if they wish to survive in what is after all an extremely competitive environment. That is a trade off that sometimes results in products that seem visually or functionally shoddy, as manufacturers strive to cut production costs and sales prices.
