To make it simple. I don`t :D I never liked Apple anyways simply because of their joke , the ratio : Price vs Quality …. plus you`re stuck with their products/software. For me is PC all the way :>

no need to war over these thing. i have both, but mostly i work on my windows 7 system, because it is faster for me, gives me more freedom of choice when it comes to software, and when i want a break, i just play a good game. i don’t even use antivirus, and never had problems. tips for this: after i install my windows 7, first thing is to set my documents folder to another drive. i even have my apps on another drive, because they are all portable. yes, even photoshop, i portablised it with vmware thinapp. office suite also also. next is to install drivers, install codecs for multimedia, yahoo messenger. when all done, i install the key software: faronics deepfreeze, and freeze the system partition with it. even after 1.5 years my rig is as fast as in the first day, because it IS like in the first day. no antivirus needed, no nothing. if i get a virus, a restart removes it. photoshop takes 10 seconds to start up, not 3 seconds like for some of the fanboys here, but i don’t really care, my future does not depend on 5 seconds difference. sometimes i deactivate deepfreeze to update windows, and that is it.

i personally think apple stuff is status symbol more than utility. but some may argue with that. i don’t care. you like mac and like to show off? be my guest. the thing is not to be a fanboy. use what helps your work best. most designers are clueless about technical stuff so i can understand them using macs, and i agree. it is made for them. i design too, but mostly i am a software developer. not a techie, but not a simple end-user either.

it’s how i roll. no need for religious arguents here. they both work well. heck even linux works well, if you have the nerve to use it. peace out.

I was considering an iMac but ended up buying a Windows 7 machine because I felt as if I was basically going to pay $1,000 more for OS X and at the same time lose the peace of mind of having a tower I can service myself if need be.

I do like what I hear about the reliability of a Mac so if Apple ever comes out with a Mac in tower form but with specs closer to a high end iMac rather than the Mac Pro, I’ll look again. The price might be right.

PS. “Designed in California” is fancyspeak for “Made in China”

That’s for sure. My point is that they are fantastic marketers and one example is in saying “Designed in California” which sounds very trendy and is probably sometimes even mistaken for “Made in USA ”. It’s like how in Texas every Toyota Tundra comes with a sticker that says “Made in Texas by Texans”. Otherwise, many Texans won’t buy a foreign sounding full-size truck (even if the parts of American cars are just as foreign as any other). Genius marketing.

I’m waiting for the day I see a Microsoft sticker on the back of a car.

And waiting… =P
