Meh? I prefer running PC for my personal stuff, but I have a Mac running in my recording studio. So I'm fairly unbiased.
That is all.

PCs are very diverse. In general, they are good for the gamer, as there are not as many Mac games. Windows Vista (which is what all of the new PCs come with) is shit. Sure it can do some cool stuff, but it is very fussy, screwy, and unreliable.
Macs, in relation to PCs are more expensive, but the quality of the lower priced PCs is terrible, although it might say it has just as much or more processing power as a Mac.
I've used a lot of both, and Macs are my personal favorite of the two.
This sort of argument can be seen all over the place iPod vs. MP3 player (some of the same companies), M16 vs AK47, Japanese cars vs. American cars.
If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.
