I've been a long time windows and mac user. In the 5 years running both side by side, i. That time The mac has been reset no more than 10 times as for the PC on average twice a week both machines are running 24/7.
My MacBook Pro has since died and I sold it on eBay for £175 as spares, if that was my PC it would end up in the trash.

I use both OSX on a mac mini and Macbook pro almost daily. i also use Windows daily. I have no problems with win 7 never had a bsod myself or a virus. My kids have had several/many. Its all how the machine is used. My Mac mini locks up occasionally but rarely. My sons Macbook pro heats up and occasionally locks up. I like both os fairly equally. I REALLY like the trackpad functionality of the MAc much better and wish the Windows machine had those features. The Macs fit and finish are truly unparalleled! The way my iphone, ipad and Mac synchronise with each other seamlessly is extremely beneficial. I know the Win machine can do this stuff but it requires tweaking and input. Hopefully with the new win 8, phones and MS tablets they will have more of this!

Asus G53SW-Xn1. I got it new on Amazon for $850 around this time last year and compared it to the Macbook Pro model at that time and it was better or equal than it in almost every way. They also all come with a free 2 year warranty plus a 1 year accidental damage warranty all straight from the manufacturer.

At least when Windows crashes it actually can inform you of what caused the issue. When a Mac crashes it just gives you a nicely styled screen that says you need to reboot - no information about the issue.
I can understand paying the Apple Tax for iMac and its all-in-one design. I can understand paying the Apple Tax for their laptops for the build quality and portability. But the massive Apple Tax on the MacPro is ridiculous and unjustifiable to be honest.

Releasing entirely new operating system with a redesigned GUI tailored for touch screen desktop computers?
Releasing the first tablet with a full operating system that can completely replace the need for a laptop?
Afraid to take risks? c'mon! I'm talking about Windows 8 btw lol
