I prefer macs but most of the good softwares are made for PCs. Some run pc softwares on their macs but I never tried. Both PCs and Macs have their purposes.
Been using a Mac since 1987.
MJ, this is weird-- I hit "MAC" when voting, but I'm showing up under PC.
Is there a PC worm that converts the votes? Or perhaps my Mac is being feisty tonight?

Lol, Mac it is then!!

When it comes to laptops I probably have to hand it to the Mac, but when it comes to desktops I will always build my own PC.
PC, a lot more software out there for it and cheaper. In terms of performance, you get a lot more for your money in PC. $1500 PC, you will need to spend at least >$2000 for the same specs on a mac.

OSX Snow Leopard = $29
Windows 7 = $119
iWork = $79
Microsoft Office = $199
And from my experience Mac software is far less buggy, although Windows 7 was a huge improvement over Vista.
As far as hardware goes, yes, Macs are a lot more expensive.
But for me, I'm willing to pay twice as much to not have to deal with all the problems my PC's gave me - system updates 2-3 times a week, computer crashing, frozen screens, losing all my data files, etc. I haven't had to deal with any of that crap since I got my Mac.

However, I think the OP was about similar software packages from third party vendors. And there are business software packages that are simply not available for Mac.

I voted PC.
My partner uses a mac as do a few of my friends so I have played with both quite a bit. If it wasn't for the release of windows 7 I probably would have converted to Mac as Vista was the most frustrating experience you could have on a computer. I put my Toshiba laptop through hell and I have not had one problem with it in 2 years, in fact everything has been smooth sailing which is more than I can say for the Missus' Macbook Pro.
The price of parts and accessories for Macs is INSANE to say the least. I had to buy a charger for one the about a week ago, goodbye $90!!! I think Windows 7 has been PCs saving grace.
yep. also, I've had a pretty good experience using VMware Fusion to run XP on my Mac. performance isnt great but its easier than rebooting or switching to my old PC.

I dont really prefer MAC computers, they cost much..
Im using a laptop right now but its an ACER..
Still not as good as a MAC but Im still loving it..
I think it the answer depends on what YOU will use the PC for.
I strongly prefer Macs. I own a Mac desktop, and I will be buying a Macbook Air once they refresh the line. However, some business software only runs on PCs (which I find highly annoying). And if you have to run Windows on your Mac to get the job done, you might as well bought a Mac.
