One more thing, since it wouldn't fit...
Macs are for professionals who are trying to do a job. They`ve obviously become more trendy what with the money Apple`s dumped into advertising, but they`re just trying to get ahold of the markets Microsoft has(indirectly) had a hold on for quite a while now.
I, myself, prefer PC because there is greater interactivity with the actual components and thus more choices. I`m sorry, but I`d like to see one other person who has the exact same computer as me. You don`t get that feeling when you buy a Mac. I don`t care how `individual` iLife can make you feel, it`ll never be the same as owning a unique computer, because someone, somewhere has the exact same one as you, and much more likely several dozens of people, if not hundreds, do as well.
A good way to sum this up: Macs are for the software nerds, PCs are for the hardware nerds.

This whole argument is ridiculous. Macs and PCs both have their uses, and neither is "better" at everything than the other.
For nuts-and-bolts power dealing with graphics, computer-farming, video, music, or any number of commercial needs, Mac is better. There are a few things it can do in the 'fun` region, as well, such as music and video editing and such.
However, when it comes to kicking back and unloading a few virtual clips, a PC is the way to go.
Another aspect nobody seems to be discussing is that Macs aren`t upgradeable to the extent that PCs are and, to get a desktop PC comparable to a Mac is -vastly- cheaper if you know how to build one yourself, something that a lot of Mac users simply don`t. Not only that, but in buying a Mac, you`re essentially saying that a.) You`re too lazy/ignorant to build your own machine, and b.) You`d rather give your machine as little individuality as possible by spending money on hardware you probably don`t need.

ok lionhart2 i'll say it again, i`m not attacking macs, i`m attacking the belief that mac users have that macs are inherently superior
you cant win that arguement, apple have already conceded that their os doesnt cut it, you say bootcamp ships with the new release, so their admitting you want to use other os`s rather than fixing the holes in theirs
game support, third party program support, brand familiarity, market share apple are losing out on all these fronts, they had to create the macs are magic belief system to turn their failing brand into a cult
and please stop distinguishing macs from other machines, internally they are the same, but when its running osx you call it a mac but running ANY other os its referred to as a pc, this is part of apple`s propaganda, just like the way they withheld 3g support on 1st gen iphones then acted as though they invented the damn thing when they put it on the second gen, you actually beleive their tech is different when it just isnt
