The only machine I have at the moment is a windows machine, and its perfectly fine. Theres no reason you have to buy into the whole, "You can only like one, Macs or Windows or Linux, or Ford, or Chevy " etc. I mean sure a whole lot of people are probably going to want me strung up after that comment, but seriously, who cares. If a windows PC does the job, great, sure it may not be as polished as the Mac OS and yes even I prefer XPSP2 to Vista most of the time, and sure, the pre-built machines from most companies don't look half as good as the Mac alternatives from Apple, but it doesn't matter. I personally know alot of people that would love to give Apple a shot, but don't because of the attitude of a lot of Mac owners toward people that have PCs. The whole elitist attitude is one of the reasons I can't even talk about Apple products with some of my friends. The mere mention of Apple brings on feelings of "Oh you mean those people that constantly insult my intelligence because I don't happen to use the same computer as they do. In summary, Macs are great, but Windows PCs do just fine too in alot of cases. Can't we all just get along?
