Default Re: 10 reasons to switch from PC to MAC?

I like both personally but I'm starting to grow towards Mac more since you can run Windows and Mac OS X on a Mac.

Here's what I like about mac:
1. FAR less (close to none) viruses than windows
2. They can run Mac OS X and Windows
3. The UI on OS X is very neat looking and Mac OS is pretty powerful
4. Apple has good warranties
5. Mac OS is very stable

Here's what I don't like:
1. Not all programs will work on a mac
2. Not as easy to upgrade as a PC
3. Some websites don't always display correctly in safari (a friend of mine who has a mac mini told me this and i'm not 100% sure if it's true or not)
4. Macs are still a bit more expensive than a PC
5. You can't build your own mac like you can a PC

I like Mac, but like anything else it has its flaws. Mac has gotten better over the past year or so as far as their computers go and I'm seriously considering getting a mac mini sometime in the not too distant future.

1. Mac suck
2. They suck becuase they cant game
-They can play some games
3. PC133 Ram? wtf are they on
-Newer mac's are DDR or DDR2
4. OS sucks, new ones are good though
-OS X doesnt suck
5. 1GHZ CPU with SSE3, Wow Im so going game on CRAP
-New CPU's are faster
6. 9200 For mac, I bet you its like PCI x -99 @ 1MB bandwidth
-Old card, no longer used in new mac's. And it used standard AGP
7. Im going to host on a mac, watch out people
-Apache + OS X is a kilelr combo
8. I wonder why macs dont need fans on there cpu
-They need fans, infact the G5's needed watercooling.
9. Built in screen, what happens if it breaks
-Replace the screen?

well
1. Mac suck - very insightful
2. They suck becuase they cant game - yes...they can...emulation, vm, etc.
3. PC133 Ram? wtf are they on -- rtfm...this is old hat
4. OS sucks, new ones are good though -- again, very insightful. i assure you the backend of OSX is much much much more sound that any Windows system
5. 1GHZ CPU with SSE3, Wow Im so going game on CRAP -- PowerPC architecture -- enough said...
6. 9200 For mac, I bet you its like PCI x -99 @ 1MB bandwidth -- Macs are the standard of the graphic design and animation industry, and you're going to try to argue about the graphics card?
7. Im going to host on a mac, watch out people -- OSX runs a unix kernel, combine that with an Apache HTTP server, and it's "IIS who"?
8. I wonder why macs dont need fans on there cpu -- again...rtfm...
9. Built in screen, what happens if it breaks -- really? the G5 has a builtin screen?....have you ever even seen a Mac?
10. Most games run on windows...correction, most games crash on windows

kthx. gg uninstall.

that's true.... I still wish the Imac would come down in price just a little bit. Macs aren't as pricey as they used to be though. at least when the mac mini came out it brought apple a low range computer.
