I've got a Dell and a Mac... and as you say.. I like my Dell, but I love my Mac. I'm actually barely hanging on to liking my Dell. In only two years, I've replaced the screen and had to completely wipe it of all systems, programs, softwares, and files because it randomly stopped working.
In fact... the first time my Dell stopped working, I had to immediately buy a new computer because I couldn't wait weeks to fix the stupid Dell due to my need for my business. I tried absolutely everything with my Dell to get it to work. The only way it would turn on and stay on was in Safe Mode.
Well, I brought my Dell home in the same bag as my new MacBook and decided to turn my Dell on in safe mode so I could get all my documents off it and transfer it to my Mac. I got distracted while turning on the Dell and let it accidentally turn on in Normal mode. All of a sudden it worked just fine! Yes, I was pissed that I bought a new computer and my old one randomly fixed itself.
However... I decided what happened was while I had the two in the same bag together, they had a little conversation. The Mac said to the Dell, "You know...it's really not that hard. Stop being lazy, and do what you are supposed to do." And the Dell was dutifully chastised.
But seriously, I still prefer my Mac over my Dell any day. It might be more expensive to fix.... but how is spending $0 on my Mac because it has never broken down, more expensive than spending $250 on my Dell because I had to replace the screen when it "burned out" and buy a whole new Windows software just to make it work? Sorry, Mac will always win in my book.
(Oh...and I got a refurbished Mac too - best choice I've ever made)edit on 20-9-2011 by CeeRZ because: (no reason given)

My friend constantly say's his PS3 is better because it looks better than the 360. (Say's my 360 looks toyish).
But now I can just say "And thats exactly what you should base your choice on for a computer". He won't even see it coming.
God it is truely annoying how people can't just accept others choices.

Apple gives their users minimal options. Its over priced, you buy the name not the operating system or the hardware. You can make or buy a windows PC for $1000 and its going to be faster then a mac. + the software is not expensive and their is more of it on windows PC. Macs are trendy crap. ICRAP. I will admit though the operating system is smooth but their is not enough options. I would only use one to search the net.edit on 20-9-2011 by 8ILlBILl8 because: (no reason given)

A PC is for gaming.
A Mac is the Paris Hilton of computers.
The PC is the Chuck Norris of computers.
That should suffice for the broad sweeping statements.
