A rig is a rig, whatever works for you  

I was gonna get a Mac Mini just to try the Apple interface but seems I can just run linux or dress up xp instead.

From what I can see the pc is much faster for my uses.

Why Mac? I hate Macs, the OS overwhelms me with its bouncing icons and the thought I am helping Jobs. Buy a big kickass PC with two SLId 8800s and then worship it

I'd have thought most mac users are creative types rather than gamers so a pair 0f 8800's would be a biiiiig waste  

They don't speed up Photoshop

Macs can be used for gaming too! Just not as many games...

You can play World of Warcraft on it, such as I do.

Also not all Mac users are the creative types. I mainly use my Mac for just basic computer usage. I sometimes will use Photoshop or Flash.

yah i'm not gonna lie, they are amazing for graphic design and such, but you just don't get the versatility with a mac that you would with windows/a pc...it just plainly wouldn't be any fun owning one, let alone for the average consumer who would use a computer for just web surfing and a few other things, macs don't come generously priced at around $300...not everyone can afford amazing computers

varsatility? VERSATILITY? You obviously havn't tried installing windows xp and updating it on 256 broadband....7 flipping days, that took.

At least mac is based on BSD/ Unix

Wise choice

I'm a Linux user, but I don't mind Apple's Mac. Doubt I'd use one, but I don't hate them.
