PCs only. Macs cost too much.

MAC's are definitely more expensive (I run all MAC's) but in my opinion more reliable too... i dont remember the last time i had a crash or a virus...

There are plenty of mac fans around here. I grew up on computers in business and in Europe, and there just weren't any Macs in either of those joints.

If you really want to me a member of the Mac tribe, it's "Mac" not "MAC".

At work we use Macs, with the occasional PC laptop.

At school my department (Fine Arts) uses Macs. Our sister department (Design) uses both Macs and PCs.

The rest of the campus, with some exceptions, uses PCs.

At home we have both Macs and PCs.

------

I see both crash with similar frequency.

The Mac vs. PC debate is similar to the Canon vs. Nikon debate. Computers, like cameras, are tools. In the hands of a skilled user, each can be used to produce wonderful things, but in the end they are just tools.
