PCs or Macs?

I have always had PCs but have just started a course for which they use Macs. I've heard they are more reliable and that most graphic designers use them. So i'm wondering which do you prefer?

i think either of them is good. if your budget is more than enough then mac is a good choice with better performance and good speed on graphic. under mac you can install windows too if you want to use a windows software when you use a mac. pc budget is more lower than mac. its easier to find and repair. low cost on hardware, price of software is the same. pc is good for gaming but for designer. coz pc performance is much more slower than mac. if you choose mac, you can install windows in a software name virtual pc. if you choose pc, you need a good or maybe better hardware to run a virtual pc to install mac software. virtual pc need a high requirement on hardware. for me either one is a good choice.

Before I used to prefer pc's over mac despite mac being the better performer in regards to media presentation. Now, since Mac has merged with Intel and their new G5 desktop system is powered by Intel then I'd have to go to Mac now. But if you ask me if I'd prefer a barebone brand over a branded pc then I'd go for barebone.

i would always prefer a PC cause most softwares are made for PC, but if you have an specific use for a computer like graphics designing and all appropriate software are available in mac then there no prob getting a mac

I strongly prefer PCs. They are cheaper, more upgradable, and do not use proprietary parts like Macs. I build my own PCs and Macs can only be obtained through Mac stores. I don't think Macs can run Windows as well as PCs. A Mac mouse only has one mouse button and the second mouse button is critical for using Windows. Macs also lock you out of many critical functions. I think they are designed for people who don't really want to understand their computer.
