A PC will cost you more ... (see above Mac vs PC pricing post)
Sure a Single Quad Core Duo chip PC is a lot cheaper than an 8 Core Dual processor Xeon Mac Pro.
But the 8 Core Xeon Mac Pro is also a lot faster that a PC.

Let's hijack this thread and turn it into an ITB vs OTB debate!!! stike

I like mixing OTB because I need a place to set my beer. I can't do it with them dang new fangled computers, not enough room to rest a budweiser. Plus plugins all sound thin and are horrible copies of classic gear, like LA-2As and Neve 1073s. But I don't own those, I have some ART tube pres, I hear they're designed just like API, except better noise specs. They really add warmth that I can't get from cold pro toolz..... lolz.....
gack.

I enjoy both. Mac when I'm editing or mixing and PC when I'm checking my e-mail out at the reception desk.

Those rules are specifically for the "Music and Computers" forum, not Gearslutz in general...

Of course, since this is the Moan Zone, you're still welcome to complain about it.

Actually, though, I think your post is a little off-topic...perhaps you should start a new thread about it.

Meh! The only reason you mix OTB is because you haven't discovered this yet.

Hmmm...lemme guess.... you were severly beaten as a child by an Apple IIGS... and now any time you see the Apple logo, your right eye twitches compulsively and you pee your pants.

Tsk tsk.... poor sot

Every time I open the side door on my Mac pro.....I go wow, when I install anything inside which takes less than a minute, I go wow, when It never freezes up session after session I really go wow, the stuff is built like a tank and runs like a MF

I hate computers in general...

OK...I can Mix, Record, Compose with them....but where's the shortcut
for: "Make Coffee, now." or "Serve cold Beer, now."

THAT would be the way forward!

With the way computers progress so quickly these days, I would rather just drop a bunch of cash on a new computer every few years then upgrading the same computer. I would do this, and have done this weather I owned a Mac or PC.

The only thing I miss about using a PC is games..... the switch from Windows Xp to OSX was a bit weird for about a week.... after that it really doesn't matter.... Although both are different, both are easy to use and I think saying that you don't like Mac because of the way the OS looks is weak.

I am not a big computer guy and I don't have a hard on for either Mac or PC.....that being said, having used both OS's, It just seems like OSX is just cleaner overall. It runs more stable and it has No viruses and No spyware which is the obvious thing everyone will say, but I also find there is less hidden files... once you delete a program you don't have a billion little files from that program still hidden on your computer.

If building and maintaining computers is your thing then thats cool.... but thats not what I want to spend my time doing..... I just want something that works.... aside from adding some ram or maybe a bigger hard drive, I will never upgrade. When the time comes that I feel like I need a major upgrade I will just buy a new computer.

Nothing wrong with being a fan of PC.....but the only thing I hate worse then trendy college kids at starbucks with there "Im a Mac" Mac computers, is people who assume that everyone who owns a mac, owns one because they are "hip" and "trendy" right now....

Really they actually just work better with less effort.... thats why they became so popular in the first place.

I love my iMac as it is the best computer I have ever owned... and I have owned many.

If Windows 7 was out in retail today, I would never use a Mac again likely.

But again, I am into more development and video stuff now and less music.

I am having a terrible time getting Safari to keep any cookies or cache settings.. I have to re=sign in to all my web locations (including here) at least 4 times a day.

IE even on Vista doesnt give me this headache.
