    They have superior graphics capabilities and they are less prone to viruses.  Apple as a company does engage in some horrendous human rights issues though and I hesitate to pay that much for a product produced on the backs of what is essentially unregulated slave labor.  I know all electronics are facing these issues, and it makes the choices of what to purchase so difficult. 

    I like both Macs and PC's but I will not shell out the money for any Apple product because they are simply not worth the price - in money, in human suffering, etc.

      I'm not sure about this so I am just asking...but isn't this true of any products made in China? Most PCs are made in China as it most everything these days :-)

      Yes and I said that in my original reply, however Apple makes a larger profit off of these horrible practice.  It is something we should all be aware of and working to stop.

    I have a MAC and have never regretted spending the money.  I have added programs, downloaded items and not once in 3 years has it ever locked up or given me any grief.

    I had PC's for years, mostly Dell and at some point they always locked up and CONTROL ALT DELETE was the order of the day.

    The MAC technology is seamless and  while it is possible to get a virus, it is very rare to have to worry about virus protection - there is a free anti-virus program from Apple to be on the safe side....and it doesn't screw things up like McAfee and Norton.

      Avast is a good free anti-virus for Windows that does the same without the bloat and other issues caused by McAffee and Norton.
