Back on topic:
What is the reason you really want to get a mac? Just for the design or also the advantages (and the few disadvantages, but they're easy to deal with) of having one?

for example the imac: i have the 20'' version and I think it's great. No more messy cables around your desk and no noisy computer box.

Also the programs i want to run dont work on Mac dont start saying they do cause you need a WINDOWS emulator to make them work so actually your not using mac your using windows.
that might be the case for some people, and I understand that. but almost all programs are available for both windows and mac now.
no offence but macs are made for people who cant use windows
hmm... I'm sorry but I really CAN'T agree with you on that one. Check out my posts on this forum. I've helped tons of people here by getting their windows problems fixed, have over a thousand posts on this account and my previous one... All those posts went into helping people with their [bleep] windows problems. So I guess I'm a mac user who was able to use windows, but was just getting sick of it's evilness.
Now I'm a mac user, and man am I glad I got rid of my windows machine! NO MORE COMPUTER PROBLEMS FOR ME
Have fun, all of you, using windows (Vista out yet? Let's all go buy a new computer again so we can even start the [bleep] OS...)

Styling cant say i can use that as a mac thing, sure they dont look bad and they look better than any business grade PC but you get some PCs that make macs look like cheap mingers. Its easy to make a PC look better than a mac some of the cases for PCs are just amazingly good looking and laptops are amazing the new asus models and other high quality brands beat apple on looks and build quality and function on that front. There is definitely no argument for macs on styling unless you dont know how to use the internet and shop for good looking PCs.
Macs arent made for people who cant use windows personally i always found macs a little harder to use but thats because i tend to like tweaking things how i like them which apple was never a fan of letting users do, personally if you want an OS thats utterly stable i would go linux over OSX cheaper and it even looks better the only thing it needs is a few hours of fiddling and playing to get it working the way you want it. While allot of people who go for macs couldnt use windows and had allot of problems because they couldnt take basic precautions or blamed hardware problems on windows thats not the fault of either of the operating systems its just some users are not computer orientated or are just impatient and dont have time to research anything beyond pretty adverts on the TV. If linux advertised on television the same way apple did they would sell half as many macs and half as many copies of windows.

It has nothing to do with the company, people just want to cause others problems, now however they are doing targeted attacks to take advantage of you and your money. Most of the malware comes from people being stupid however so the company can't be blamed for your punishment to illegal activity on your computer which is one of the greatest causes of infected machines.
Viruses come about when people hate the company who released the OS and because that company is making so much money.
Yes you can, it's just as easy as windows, however its not as common due to the smaller user base. Apples OS has as many holes as swiss cheese, they just need to be located as they are being in XP. Hopefully we will see more releases in OS's by Microsoft so we'll see less malware because people won't be as familiar with the OS.
You don't get viruses on Mac cause theres nothing worth attacking.
At least we can upgrade our insides to do so, mac's need to go out and buy a completely new computer since the hardware can't be upgraded to meet new requirements, and not everyone is going to need to upgrade their computer, if they are using areo then upgrades will probably be needed if your computer is older then a year or two, otherwise you could still run it on a fairly old computer.
Vista out yet? Let's all go buy a new computer again so we can even start the [bleep] OS.
In the end what it comes down to is preference, each OS has its ups and downs. Microsoft has malware issues, macs can't be upgraded nor can they play many games. If one was a way better then the other then we'd only have one operating system, however there are 3 each serving different peoples needs.

Thats such a generalised statement neither is any better at anything else than the other the only thing that makes macs good for media DEVELOPMENT is the software suite which is exclusive to it other than that its just another OS neither is better than the other for most things the difference are purely UI after that and user base how they are used is from the selection in the software suite which between the two is quite diffferent.
Mac is good for media and PC is good for office work
Also malware is a commerical excercise its extremely rare for someone to make a virus because they "hate" an OS few people hate an OS unless they have a vested interest in another competing one. Malware is created to make money or to further the objectives of its creator through malicous means but not neccesarilly malicous intent. They make malware for windows because they have been doing it for so long they are familiar with it and it has by far the largest market share over 90% because windows is primarily an operating system made and marketed to businesses its other abilities were always designed to further that.

I don't know what you mean by customize, but i was refuring to the hardware not the software. Also the people here might have problems with it since its against the TOS here.
Oh and james you can customise a mac now if you download MacOSx86 which is a version of mac that can be used on PC even though its totally illegal, whos cares though to be honest lol.
