Well, you definitively have to give Apple the academy award for ultimate coolness, just about every new Mac, iPod or whatever gadget the come up with makes me think: "I need one of those, I'm not sure what for, but I definitively need it..."
That said, I'm a PC guy (who uses the PC version of iTunes to synch his Apple iPod Touch...
), it's not that I think Macs are not outstanding pieces of hardware, it's just that there are certain things I want from my computers that Macs can't provide. To start with, I love to set up my own computer system, and as others have mention earlier in this very thread, that kind of narrows it down to a PC doesn't it?
Also, I must say that I believe Windows have been unjustly tagged as "slow", "unsafe", "unstable", etc. I have a 5 years old Centrino Laptop running on Windows XP professional and it's been 4 years since its last formatting. Needless to say it's not a speed demon by today's standards, but it smoothly runs just about any application except hard-core games, and that includes concurrent runnings of Eclipse developing environment, Oracle Database and Weblogic application server, with "only" 2GB RAM and an 80G 4200rpm HDD.
Also, there are certain popular applications that just aren't there for Mac, including AutoCAD and othe Engineering tools which must be run on a PC (although perhaps AutoDesk might surprise us with a Mac version of AutoCAD, who knows?). Anyway, for the time beign, I just can't imagine an Engineering studio with everybody running AutoCAD on a emulator.
Not to mention games, few if any games are released for Mac, only for PC. I'm a part time gamer myself so there yoy've got another reason for me to chose PCs.
Again, let me clarify I'm not trying to throw any dirt on Macs, I love them, it's just that, as of today, they don't suit my needs the way a PC can. One thing for sure though, if I ever get seriously into video editing, first thing I'll do is go straight into an Apple Store.
Just my 2 cents.
