    What do people have? Or wish they had?:) Obviously with that second question I am a Mac person and love it. I am not anti-PC rather just pro-Mac. I will say I have not heard to many people that "love" their PC, while I hear this all the time about Macs. People who prefer PCs seem to just not like a Mac and therefore, by default, have to use PCs. Just a limited, very unscientific observation.

    I've always had PCs, more specifically Dells & we have 2 desktops & a laptop now. I won an HP gift card, so I'm about to buy another PC, a mini laptop.

    My BF and I are MAC people. We have 2 laptops (he has a MacBook Pro and I have a MacBook) and an iMac.

    I think they are more alike than different nowadays. I think there are also pros/cons to the differences for each as well. Having said that, I do love my mac. I just don't think it is so dramatically different than a PC as much as they used to be. I like it because it shows simple elegance that just doesn't quite show up on a PC and at the same time, all the features are there as well. BUT... the OS interface design from the mac system that I like so much is showing up on some PC machines. Go figure.

    I have a PC and my daugther has a Mac. I used to be a Mac person but switched because my school gave every teacher a PC laptop. Honestly, I don't see a big difference between the two anymore. Now, I go for cheap. :lol:

    We are Mac people here too. I have a MacBook, Ruben has a MacBook Pro, and there is an imac in my bedroom. At work I have to use their PC and I don't like it as much. I will always be an apple girl I think.

    We love our Macs. I just got a Macbook Pro. My kids and husband all have Macbooks, and our main house computer is an IMac.

    I love the idea of a Mac, but not the price :lol:

    I have an iPhone and absolutely adore it.... I probably use it more than my laptop.

    I've always had a PC. I got my first one in the early 80's.

    I've never even SEEN a Mac. Seriously. Nobody I know has ever had one, and there aren't any places to buy them around here.

    Other than iPhones and iPods, I've never seen MAC products. I know a couple of people who have ordered iPads, but I haven't seen them since they got them.

    I don't have an iPhone or iPod either.

    Apple all the way - ipod, ipod shuffle, Macbook Pro, Imac, and Ipad. Gadgets are my achilles heel . . .

    I really didn't like Apple until I forced to use one for work. Now I couldn't live without my MacBook Pros (have a work one & a personal one). They're so easy to use and easy to sync with the ipod and ipad. I do have a PC at home, but don't use it very often.

    I LOVE my MAC! And it transfers to word now so, no worries. You can have the best of both worlds.

    My husband really wants a Mac, but all of our computers are PC. We have a cheap desktop computer, regular laptop, and mini laptop. We've needed them all-because we've had several times when two of the three didn't work and I had Master's work I needed to finish. Maybe a Mac would hold up better.

    Our next computer will be a mac. We have a PC now. However, we also have (in the family) 3 iPod touches, one iPad and one iPhone and I am now in love with apple. GREAT customer service and support and I love the products that we have. I'm going to get rid of the desktop altogether this summer (the kids each have their own laptop, and so does dh...) and I'm getting a mini Mac.

    Every time a new Windows OS comes out, it looks more like Apple OSX. Funny, that...

    I just got a MacBook Pro this week and I *LOVE* it. Seriously, I am in love.

    My husband, the ultimate PC guy, is jealous. :)

    Ubuntu Linux...

    (you do know that OSX is really a Unix system, right?)

    There's always one that has to take it to a higher level :lol:
    I wonder how many really know about Unix?

    I've owned Macs since the Mac SE. I think I have owned about 13 different Mac computers over the years, including an original iMac, a G3, G4, and G5 tower, Lampshade imac, Mac mini, ibook, mac book, mac book air, and some others along the way. I usually have 2 to 3 computers at a time. Right now, I still use my G5 tower daily. It still does nearly everything that i want it to do, even though it was discontinued in 2003. I also use the Macbook Air for work. I just gave my imac away to my little brother.

    Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac.......

    I only use a PC because it's from work but it feels dirty to use it.
