Is "Apple" better

Would I be better off buying an Apple computer ?, do you know if they are better than other PCs ?

Now there's a can of worms.

Maybe somebody should ask Linus Torvalds ?

Pro- Macs look nice and slick

Con- You can get slick PCs too though

Erm, technical support seems to be a pain in the rear

All-in-one designs are gonna make for a bastid to upgrade


Only a fraction of the amount of hardware and software available to a PC user

and so forth, it's late now.

I anyone brave enough to open the can ?

Not really, except for one thing, the mac is a video killer, they can munch their way through video footage, encoding etc a billion times (slight exageration) faster than a pc. Professional's swear by them and swear at you dare you mutter the words pc.

And to be honest, the whole Mac Vs Pc has been done to death, just type it into google and you'll be bamboozled with info from both camps.

Its been brought up so many times I don't think you'll have many takers, especially since this is a PC Forum not an Apple one.

Totally-braindead, so sorry to have upset you.
As a novice I just thought someone would give me some guidance on this.
As for everyone else, thank you for your replies, , I much appreciate the help I have had on other subjects. I feel I can rely on you all.
