    I'm kind of curious how many PC users we have here vs Mac users.

    Just for the record, I have 4 Mac's, 4 iPods, and 1 PC. I also use quite a few PC's for "work" servers and those run mostly FreeBSD plus 1 Linux box.

    So, pretty diverse selection. But, my primary "workstations" are all Mac.

    I have a PowerMac, my wife has a MacBook, my daughter has a MacBook and my son has an iMac.

    Will probably be upgrading later this year either to a MacBook Pro or iMac.

    However at work I have to use a Dell laptop. It freezes up a least once a day.

    My main computer, and prefered system, is a Mac, but I have multiple PCs and Macs, the PCs running a variety of different OSes (I'm trying to Hackintosh one, too).

    All PC's here in my household. A HP does the job at the desk while a HP laptop handles the duties on the go.
    The only apple products I have is the 3 ipods. ( 1gig shuffle, 4gig nano, 30 classic )

    I'm thinking about getting a Mac book Air, or a Mac book Pro, but haven't got that far yet.

    I've been in IT for over 20 years. Almost exclusively DOS/Windows clients (hey, I go back a long way, ok?) Novell, WinNT / 2000 / 2003 Servers, with some miscellaneous other stuff thrown in. I'm all Mac at home ever since 10.3. I don't see ever going back to the dark side for personal use. The closest I'll come is VM Ware Fusion on my Macs to run Windows stuff for work when I have to.

    Had all kinds of pc systems custom built. I have msi wind hackintosh which works well for ultra mobile use. I also have a mac mini bought christmas 2009, which i like a lot and will buy a ipad in the near future. I would like a 21.6'' imac as well, maybe later on in the year or a macbook pro for video editing and creative stuff in general.

    I've been saying for a while now the next computer i get will be a mac. I know I love my iphone, and I think my expierence with a mac will be the same, much better than a pc.
