PC. Easier to upgrade, has more programs, and i'm a gamer.. and lets face it, if you buy a mac expecting all computer games to run on it.. you need your head examined.

Though in mac's favour, it's god when it comes to animation and video editing (so I hear).


However, as a decent workstation.. I have been considering buying one of those Intel macs. I hear they do mighty fine on a dual boot between Mac OSX and Windows XP...

What do you mean? If you've bought Windows XP before, it would depend if the license was for multiple computers on only one computer.

Well the initial launch will be buggy, but once it gets established it should put MS in a better light.
