      I personally prefer Windows but there is certainly nothing wrong with having a Mac, both have their pros and cons.

      Can't make the choice as I've never used a Mac so know nothing about them.

      I myself am a PC person. I remember when I was working in a school some years ago now, they used Mac's so I had to work off those to do certain jobs, I couldn't get on with a Mac at all and looked like someone whom didn't have a clue about a computer :lol: haven't gone back to use a Mac since and wouldn't to be honest. PC all the way.

      I'm a Mac person myself. Having used both, I feel that a Mac is just more suited to me and they way I operate on the computer. Nothing wrong with windows though, except the viruses...the crashing...the..*Yawn*..Could be here a while. :p

      :lol: I must admit Mac does have it's strong points especially when it comes to viruses :) however I haven't noticed much crashing of windows myself since Windows 7 was released, barely happens to me now however I wouldn't say it never happens.

      I prefer Windows since I have been using Wiindows XP for years and I could say that I am contented with it. Just enough for my usual activities online. I get used to it already and no need for me to change it for now.

      I've taken it apart and I just can't figure it out lol. I am half blaming my charger though. It doesn't get past the boot screen when booted with it plugged in yet when it is not plugged in, ohai mr boot screen! I just have to try a different charger haha.

      Windows for me. I've been this way since I first touched a computer. Macs are alright, but their capabilities seems limited for me.

      I'm a windows guy.
      I've never used a Mac and I'm not going to start anytime soon, unless someone I know lets me use their own.
      - although, I don't think I know anyone in real life that uses a Mac more than Windows ( I think )

      In my opinion Mac OS is great for graphic artist’s people into video and audio editing and web developments.

      I used Windows when I was younger and I'm still loving it.

      Don't care much for Macs, though..

      I turned myself into a Mac person now. Windows always crash non stop errors, memory error or registry cannot be found; I had enough. Mac all the way. Hail Mac!
