OK, I don't know how many people here actually have a mac, but I do have one so I speak from experience ;P

Personally, I think windows is better. It's much easier to find software for, and typically seems to be faster. I know, my mac's rather slow, but I mean I even compare a PIII 733MHz(windows XP) to the Mac Mini, and the PIII does similar stuff much faster than the Mac.

I've had lots of problems with OSX. I hear since OS10, they lost the "true" mac feel. I know it's quite difference since my last experience with MacOS 8... Besides the change, I've had many little problems with my programs. Firefox, my chat client, Premiere, Photoshop... They all give me errors almost every time I use them.

Eh, I just don't know... I can't find much good to say about my mac. I really like it's size and how it's next to slient, but...eh, that's about it.

exactly. what do you want to use it for? i have two macs, an emac with osx, and a powerbook with os 9.2. mac is a lot more user friendly, and not to mention a lot of eye candy with osx. if you're a gamer, the choice is windows of course. if not, and you're not too familiar with computers, get a mac...but they are a lot more expensive and they have limited compatibility

...go with windows, IMO

go with mac if your not to familiar with windows,
cause like me, if your used to windows by now,
going to a new operating system will be a big shock to the system
so if you're an average comp user id say go for the mac

EDIT: and hey! if you get the intel cpu you could alwasy dual boot it with windows

There is basically no advantage whatsoever to using a Mac over a PC, there really isn't.

With a mac....

You lose Compatability, Upgradability, and customization.
Macs are not cost effective, they are just not worth what you pay.

As for the 2.0ghz dual core, it does not add up. it is not a 4.0ghz cpu, it's just a cpu with two cores, each running at 2.0ghz. they work together to run multiple programs faster, excellent for multitasking, but it is not as fast a single core 4.0ghz cpu single tasking.
