      Mac is good though but geared towards designing and creativity.

    windows xp (hate vista) but, I really think I want a MacPro notebook!!!!!! For me, it's hard to justify as I can get a windows notebook with all the same specs at a fraction of the price...my compromise might be to just purchase a Mac desktop....I already have a nice big monitor so I could just get the tower.

    Mac, all the way!! I was actually thinking of writing a hub about all the reasons I'm now a Mac loyalist. smile

    I'm with girly girl. I'd love a Mac notebook, but not enough (so far) to justify spending $400+ more than a PC laptop with comparable specs. sad

      There is a wonderful elegance and ease of use that isn't a part of the PC platform. Personally I think it's worth the extra money.

    Sadly, Windows Vista.  Can't justify a Mac's expense.  Maybe Google's OS will be a good compromise.

    Mac. And I really don't think the basics are that expensive. My first laptop was a Toshiba-piece-o-crap and it was $400 more than my Mac.

    Sounds like I'd better get going on that Hub - will do as soon as I get some time. Maybe I'll be able to convince you, girly girl! big_smile

    XPsp2 on a Toshiba laptop, which is my third, and unbreakable!
    All windows versions suck, but allow me to do what I need to, which is quite a lot.
    The Toshiba Satellite still has a lousy battery life though!

      You can partition off chunks of memory to run both Op Systems, if you like. It's helpful if you have software that requires one or the other to run.

    Or just run parallels.

    It's a hypervisor, it allows you to run any OS w/o leaving Mac OS X.

    Mac all the way! I've been raised on Apple, tried a PC for a few years, hated it, and switched back to a mac.
    They're beautiful and easy to use, period.

    We have WinXP on a desktop here at home and run WinXP at work with 2007 programs which REEK, BTW.  Whatever happened to WordPerfect for law firms?  But I digress.  I bought an entry level MacBook a few months back.  It was a return at Fry's and got a good deal on it.  I installed VMWare Fusion on it, but have not yet bought the Word/etc. suite.  Waiting to see what happens after Win7 launches.  In the meantime, I'm using Google docs for my classwork in Creative Writing.  My prof turned the class onto it and it "travels" well!

    I have had a couple of friends buy Macs and return them, but I REFUSE to believe that a Mac is harder to use than a PC.  I use no Antivirus and have had NO ZERO NADA ZIP problems with viruses.  It's still a learning curve for me, I will give you that, but does it ever lock up?  NEVER?  Okay, once, but I think it could have been my mistake.  All I did was turn it off and bring it back up later.  No worries. 

    I try to read most of the Mac blogs on HubPages, as I need all the info I can get!!

    I love, love, love my MAC!! It's easy to use, reliable, and the learning curve was very small, even for a non-techy like me!

    I have used macs at work for many years. When I bought this one for my home, I bit the bullet and paid a the extra money for it. It has run flawlessly for three years. To me, the expense is justified by that fact itself.
