Mac or PC?

Hey everyone ,

Just curious to see who has a mac computer or a PC.
This includes laptops. I myself am on a desktop PC, which is getting pretty old lol. But in a couple weeks I am getting an Mac iBook laptop, so Im pretty excited.

We have 3 PC desktops, 3 PC laptops and my precious MacBook Pro.

I seldom, if ever touch the PCs anymore and the next desktop I buy will be either a Mac Mini or an iMac.

Yeah my dad and mom have the iBook G4, my sister has the iBook G3, my brother has the MacBook.
My dad is upgrading from the G4 to the MacBook, so the other computers are being passed down. The G4 to my sister and the G3 to me.
Ever since my family has had these laptops, Ive been the only one using the PC desktop , but this thing is going to be obselete when I get my laptop.

let's see... in the house we have, if i remember correctly, 3 or 4 laptops, 6 desktops, 4 or 5 servers (running a mix of OSs), an eMac, and a MacMini... and probably 8 mp3 players (a mix of Creative, Ipod, and Rio)

Oh the surface, Macs aren't much different from PCs.

It's when you realize the ease of use and absolute efficiency of a Mac that you see the difference.
My one Mac is more stable, more effecient, FASTER, runs cooler and is just in general more awesome than any of my PCs

Edited to add

You know when you want to install a new camera, or printer or any piece of new hardware aside from a mouse on a PC you have to mess with the software cds, or wait for windows to find the right driver and then pray that it works?

On a Mac, you plug it in and you use it. Just like that.

You know when you install some software on a PC and you have to wait ages for it deposit files in a million different places and your system draaaaaaaags while you wait?

On a Mac you click the application you want to install and you drag it to your applications folder. Now it's installed.
