They are both personal computers, but all depends on what you really need a pc or mac for? This is a very big question which will make your decision worth the purchase or not? Are you a user that don't make much changes? Mac is your choice, do you like to tweak your software so often, looking for variant programs to use? then PC is yours. Do you hate Apple iTune program? etc.

Mac's Laptop are usually priced higher to almost double the worth of a good PC Laptop, for the long run a sale value for Mac's keeps steady downgrade, even after specific period of time in comparison to a PC Laptop. So it's not a wasted money investment if you count the depreciation value.

Mac comes standard for specific job with it's own operating system not much of flexibility but it's built for good use. As others said, expensive and anything related to Apple it means more money that will go for software, protection or common use.

Mac are better for video, music, picture editing. While they lack the variety of PC software's which is not a problem as long you have a windows OS emulation program. Compatibility, Flash use PC wins the race.

It's your choice to make? Remember, Apple have no production facility in US at all. They count US as a consumer base, though they still have their HQ here in US which I will assume it will be moved to another place if and when Americans understands what they are doing before spending their hard earned money on a company that doesn't invest on production labor on their best purchase market.

I don't hate Apple, but dislike their policy.

Once upon a time they used RISC chips. Now they are a polished BSD operating systems over non-IBM Intel 8086 hardware.. They are only better for having a cleaner desktop environments and less security researchers targeting it.

I buy them for IOS and OSX development and research, but for little else.. You can't build IOS apps without OSX and Xcode..

Once upon a time, the Mac outperformed pc by a wide margin vs identical specs.
Today, I see no differences in performance specs.
Of course, I haven't mentioned price, and the fact that vintage pc's retain a lot of value, blowing the apple out the sky, in flames, in the area of costs vs performance.

What do you want to do with it.
Remember most puters use windoze programs good or bad.
Macs are not completely compatible with many of them.
You may have to do this or that to make some things work, others simply will not.
Some people say to load windowz as well but then why not just get a PC then.
Viruses are starting to be made to attack Macs and their solutions when attacked so far have been pitiful.
You will have a vast range of software for a windowz PC and a limited one for an Apple.
Hardware is another issue.
Many bits and pieces to add to and modify a PC.
Apple not so much.

If you want the often dimmer, fashion orientated, consumer obsessed people in your life to be impressed, get an apple.
If you want something that's probably better value and more compatible with the real world, something that you can easily upgrade or add storage/etc to if needed down the line, get a PC.

Other than a few niches they share a lot of software anyway these days, so what is the point?

I learned to program in assembly language on an APPLE 2+. Went to Amiga 500, 200 after that.
Used an APPLE MAC at work and it was a piece of shit.

After that I started building my own PCs and now just buy... them mostly dell and upgrade them when they need it. Right now I'm using a 5 year old Dell XPS17... works fine, lasts a long time.

About a month ago I bought a new Dell Inspiron 3847 with the Intel I7 chip and 16GB memory, haven't even taken it out of the box.

What I'm trying to say is that I'm totally PC now. Did a lot of software development on my job... remote data communication with air monitoring stations so the interface for our data loggers is there in the PC OS and external hardware is readily available.

When I worked for the military about 25 years ago, Apple was in use in video production facilities because PCs couldn't handle video, now that is highly debatable.

Can't say if Apple users are dimmer... maybe its an brand allegiance thing. Mostly I believe it's a status and fashion thing like with the Iphone.

Where do people buy software for APPLE? I can buy software for my PC at the damn supermarket. Don't understand how they stay in business... probably because they charge and arm and a leg for their computers and their phone market is huge. Other than that I don't pay attention to them.

I'm really fond of the Fuji myself.

Get a Haswell i7 based PC and run OSX on it under a virtual machine.. Mac hardware has been PC hardware since the end of PowerPC..
