I would not have said it three years ago but now I am a Mac guy. I switched to an iMac for my desk computer, have a Macbook Pro, a Macbook Air an iPad and an iPhone. I rarely use any of the PC's in my house. I don't know that I would go back to one, personally. Now, for networking..the Mac is not as good in that area, unless you only have one person using the computer, and not the potential of hundreds using it. (even with an Apple Server) - - - Even with those downfalls, the increase in price is well worth it. It's hard to explain to people when they look at JUST the specs because you can get a Windows PC with the same "specs" for a much cheaper price, but in IMHO, the Mac is just BETTER.
