Moved to Polls as more people will see it here.

Stillerfan, could you please edit this to make it a poll for the OP? (the OP might be able to do that now that it is in the polls section).

I vote only PC. Apple doesn't have near the software I need (almost all engineering software is PC as well anything I do with my job) and I just can't stand Apple products....

I own an Ipod b/c it was a gift otherwise I'd never own one.

that's why boot camp is a wonderful tool...

it's funny how vista and xp run more efficiently on a Mac...

but hey, why not own the best of both worlds ~ but i guess that's what makes me a geek 4 life

PC for now. i think my next computer will be a macbook pro.

i want them to redesign the case though. its getting kinda dated since its basically the same as the aluminum powerbooks.

I think the MacBook Pro is scheduled for a redesign soon. I've heard rumors anyways.

I have both. MacBook Pro for daily tasks, PC for logging onto work and the like.

I also have XP on my Mac with BootCamp, but I tend to use my desktop for work related stuff.

Mainly a processor update. Maybe a couple of other things such as newer graphics and upgraded memory. The later to coincide with the new processors. That is what I am waiting for before I pull the trigger on a 24" iMac.

It's possible there may even be a Blue-Ray driver as the new superdrive on the iMac's

Happy with Windows XP at work.
After numerous problems and fixes with Windows XP at home I caved and got a 24" iMac at home since Christmas. I was more $$$ than a new Dell/Windows XP equivalent but it certainly is simpler.

p.s. Some of your cars look really good on a 24" iMac screen.

The good thing about Macs are that they dont depreciate in value like regular pcs do. I got mine last year, and it costs almost the same still.

Vista here, all of my programs are PC based for website development and coding, Photoshop, Lightroom, Fireworks, UltraEdit, FTP, Anyalitics, Office, OneNote, Quicken HAB (Have you ever seen how much of a train wreck Quicken is on a MAC?) etc... ....run a Macbook Black v2 for browser testing. Not V1 that randomly rebooted and caught on fire. Apple FAN Boys Attack! LOL

Dual boot the Macbook with Vista too. Gave it a boost by adding a gig of ram (now 2GB) and changing the cheap hard-drive that Apple configures the computer with. I replaced the hard-drive with a Western Digital Scorpio 320 (NewEgg.com $199.00). Apple uses lousy hard-drives and low capacities with not many decent options. I highly recommend adding more ram and a better hard drive no matter what Macbook/Pro you get. Newegg.com has great deals and you can save HUGE $$$ on memory. Apple notoriously over charges for memory and will sell you the higher configuration of RAM at a much higher cost then if you buy online from Apple or from another dealer. They are very arrogant when it comes to this stuff in their stores. I really don’t like the mentality of the Apple Stores and their help.

2GB Apple $200.00
2GB NewEgg $60.00

Why do I have to buy a new iPod just to get search? It’s a software upgrade not hardware. So too sum it all up…. Apple = A lot of Hype and not a lot of substance IMHO. It’s the only way they can keep on selling, what is just a computer. And no more intuitive or easier to use then a PC. I had to buy a book to figure out the so called easier to use then a PC computer.
