Just a thought...the responses seen on here will be very biased because only those individuals who are really passionate will make the effort to respond. And most Mac users are very vocal about their choice.
I`ve been using XP on a Dell for about 4.5 years now and haven`t had a single problem. About a year and a half ago, I decided I wanted more memory so I bought some, plugged it in and just moved on.
I`ve been extremely happy with my PC and wouldn`t consider a Mac. I`m sure they are reliable but I need to be able to run the widest variety of programs for my business and don`t have time to try to find hacks to make everything work together.
