PCs

I have both but I prefer a Mac because they are built to last and I don't have to worry about any viruses.

Mac is better than PC if you want more simplicity and a longer lasting computer, but LINUX kicks everythings @$$!

It's a common misconception that Unix systems like Mac and Linux are more resistant to viruses. The simple fact of the matter is that there are fewer viruses targeted at those systems. In many cases those systems are more susceptible to certain types of viruses than PCs simply because people assume that they don't need virus protection.

Macs may be resistant to viruses, but you lose a ton of functionality with that, and even so, with a PC you can have anti-virus software, or how about actually being careful with what you download?

I personally like PCs because they have a lot more software and more support for games. However, macs have been gaining a lot of ground, and I want to know why! Is the mac guy on TV right, or should I stick with my PC?

I like being able to purchase components that I want in my computer and not have to rely on the models that Apple has put together for you. For customization and gaming, I would have to say that PC's are much better. If you aren't into customizing your computers and just want something simple that doesn't need tweaking, get a Mac.

Also, depending on your software needs, you will want to look at the compatibility issues that may arise. This will determine which computer you will need. I'm PC all the way.

PCs are more customizable as in internal and external. You can customize the themelike editing the start menu, taskbar, menubar, etc... It's easier to upgrade the hardware and enjoy a wide variety of games, not having to think about the compatibility (as in for XP). It is much cheaper, because a lot of companies manufacture pcs and are constantly competing each other.

PC's have more hardware. ALIENWARE!!!

PCs have much more functionality and aren't limited by the way Apple designs its programs and such. There generally is more functionality with PCs and it usually is more likely that a program will work on a PC over a Mac.

PCs are better as a whole. They are faster, have many more programs, Bill Gates supports them what else could you possibly need? Those commercials that advertise Macs are stupid. The fastest computers ( Aliens ) are PCs NOT Macs.

Side: PCs

PCs are dependable, can hold more space, and can download more types of software. I've relied on them my whole life.

A PC running Linux has infinitely more hardware and software freedom than a Mac any day. Plus, the big problem with Macs is you end up being associated with "Mac people". shudder
