    None. I personally prefer my Mac, but both systems have advantages and disadvantages.

    PC. No split screen in Mac. Suck it! You have to, ugh, manually re-size two windows to create a "split screen" effect. + PCs are a lot cheaper.

    Mac, Windows copied the Mac in a lot of different ways. Although Macs are more expensive you don't need to replace the hard drive every year.

    I'd say mac is. Every mac caters to the disabled for no additional costs. The keyboard is braille, the gestures you use serves a one armed person and the list is endless. I had a friend with one arm and when her macbook got stolen, she got another mac without contemplation. Not cause she was rich but cause she couldn't use anything else. She uses photoshop better than any other person I know and I doubt using a PC would give her the leeway she has with a mac.

    Isn't it obvious? Macs are so much easier to use!

    When I was a Windows user I had no idea what I was doing!

    What is this start thingy?

    And I am sure every PC user feels the same way about Mac when unfamiliar with it.

    PC. Cheaper, easier to replace components if they break, and you don't look like a prat.
    the last bit is just insulting....

    PC for sure.

    I used a Mac recently for the first time and had no idea wtf to do - I felt like I'd never used a computer before
    Well there you go, they are supposed to be different, spend a week with one and you'd know how to use it easily.

    PC... and if you like you can 'play with' bits of the OS more easily if you know what your doing, there's more free stuff - ok so there are mrope viruses - so what? get an anti-virus and you're just as protected as a mac - plus you get more power for your money and if you aren't used to mac it's much easier to use - though UNIX terminal (mac and linux) are better than windows command line

    PC

    More powerful per £

    More software available without having to "emulate"

    Easy repairs

    No soldered in memory chips

    More available accessories

    Not such a target for theft

    Easier/cheaper upgrades

    Not as pretentious as Apple

    Not having to deal with the "genius" at stores

    I could go on, but I won't.

    Oh yeah gotta hate having to deal with those geniuses. Remind me what you do when your PC breaks down again?

    By PC I'm assuming you mean Windows.

    Both have their advantages and disadvantages, it all boils down to preference.

    P.S. Why word limit?
