HP Pavillion laptop until I buy a new desktop. Still looking to see what's best to get.

HP. Bought one of the last new ones that still came with XP. Had a Sony before that and it was absolutely bulletproof.

Gateway. Used to be a Mac Man but switched about 10 years ago. Still love the Mac. Just had too much invested in software for the PC to switch back.

The one I voted on is a Mac. In addition to this Mac, at home we have HP, Dell, Acer, Alienware, and maybe even an old Compaq or something.

Doesn't Apple (Mac) have only about 4 percent of the PC market? Yet here it's leading?

4% was the 2004 figure. Apple's general market share's been growing steadily since MacOSX and iMacs. Today it's well over 8% and still growing.
But that's the general PC market. Vastly dominated by the faceless masses of office and Mom & Pop PC's.
Photonuts are into images. Graphics. That's traditionally Apple's preserve.

On this board there'll be a large share of Macs.
On gaming boards the Mac's share might not even top 2%.

And, oh yes, I run a 20" Intel iMac, a 24" Intel iMac, a 17" MacBook Pro, and a 17" G4 iMac.
