PCs and Macs: Are You a Loyalist Or a Converter?

No matter how the Mac and PC war rages (though it's been a little quiet of late, no?), we all know which side we're each on.

Sometimes the preference grows out of having a bad experience on one platform, and then switching to the other side to discover something that makes more sense to you, but often many of us grow up staunchly Mac or PC, never pausing to try out the other.

I was a converter; though I used my family's Apple as a kid, for years I bounced around different PCs, like my old Compaq and Dell. In recent years, though, Mac has been my one and only.

Tell me; have you always been PC or Mac, or did you make the switch at some point to be where you are now?

switching to mac was the best decision I ever made!!! when I was a windows user I'm sure I had viruses I didn't even know about. I couldn't stand how slow windows would run and it was as if you could never fully get rid of any of the viruses you got with windows unless you bought a brand new computer. Needless to say I don't miss the headaches!!!!

I've always been a PC person for two reasons. One, it's cheaper. Two, it's what every job I've ever had uses.

I used to use PC's when I was younger because that was all my family could afford. As soon as I started working, my first major purchase was a Mac and I haven't looked back. I still use PC's at work though, albeit grudgingly :)

ahaha i read the options wrong. i used mac from 1999-2008 then went to vista. i like the mac interface - i like the design of my machine and my two button (actually i use a 5 button mouse) and what nots better that and the people at the mac store started to really grate on my nerves ahaha but yeah no real hate towards any company. i own an ipod and stuff still

I once was a Windows loving user (sorry geeksugar, but PC is "personal computer" which applies to any machine that runs Windows, OSX, Linux or any other Operating System.) Once the Apple associate told us that Mac's can run Windows (the Intel ones, anyway) using BootCamp (or you can pay to use Parallels or VMWare and use the OS' at the same time), we bought an iMac. It's a beautiful machine, it runs FAST, it boots up in no time and I've never had ANY issues with it.... I've definitely been converted.

I have always been a PC lover though I used Macs back in the day. My college also had Macs that I had to use if everything else was full - I have nothing against them but I just prefer PCs.

Mac (from PC). It's much better for my purposes (such as photography).

I grew up using an old Apple computer and I also used Linux, used a PC for a very brief window when I was about 11, but since then I've been all Mac.

I'm a Mac user. I don't /hate/ PCs, but I prefer the Mac for just about everything, including word processing, spreadsheet creation, presentations, etc. I love the interface, the hardware, and nearly ever application that I've come across. I can't see myself wanting a PC for personal use, other than to test document compatibility for those who don't use them. However, I've never come across a document that hasn't been cross-compatible, so I imagine I wouldn't ever need one. It never ceases to amaze me, however, how many people still believe it's only an artsy machine. The 80s are over; Macs have grown up. =/

How did I miss this yesterday? Even though they changed the first two I still voted wrong.. I switched from PC to Mac. That's probably pretty obvious though.

I've used a pc for years and years, but have used my kids mac notebook as well as desktop quite a bit and to be honest, I don't see that the mac is all it's said to be. I was told it was faster and I just didn't see that at all, and that would be the thing that would most interest me.

Laptop is a PC; desktop's running Linux. Used a Mac for a week and almost threw it out the window.

Candace87, I'm not sure what type of professional software Mac is lacking in your case, but Apple is the only way to go for pro audio.
