I have been a fan of PC's until windows vista and windows 7

Is Mac a better computer/OS?? Is all the hype real??

Should I buy a mac desktop???

What are your thoughts???

Do you play games?

Stick with Windows.

For gaming, Windows is the best as 95% of the PC games are made for the Windows OS.

But if you are more into other kinds of work like office work (Documentation, etc) or anything else which is online - Then I suggest a Mac since it is much more secure than Windows.

Also, there is always a lot of updating in Windows, so alot of programs, drivers need to be updated. Mac does not deal with so many updates.

EDIT: This is my 4000th post!

Actually... Mac's have STEAM games now... and World of War Craft.. and The Sims 3 series, Spore, the list goes on... I just wanna mac for the No more viruses thing.. I hate shelling out $50+ yearly for stupid Anti-virus programs.. Not to mention no more driver updates, not as much anyways.. Every month there seems to be a new patch for my ATI 4850.. and my Sound Blaster audigy.. Besides that, there is a mac tower with 8 core processors!!! not to mention upto 40 gigs of ram.. maybe more.. Yes the mac is more expensive.. but I'd rather have no viruses any day over a cheap pc.. Anyone that says there no games on mac hasn't been paying attention, they got loads of games now.. and OpenGL is a billion times better than DirectX.. just like HTML 5 is better than Flash.

Well then go and buy it.

I've always been using Windows and always will. I'm downloading all kinds of stuff and visiting sites you'd never thought they existed and I maybe get up to 10 spywares and 1-2 viruses per week, sometimes per month. Not a big deal. And it's not that hard for me to go to ATi website to download new drivers just so my GPU could work better.
