What are the advantages of a Mac over a PC?
 
Since the Mac users that I'm usually around have no credible knowledge of computers, I thought I'd ask on these message boards.

What makes a Mac worth more than what you pay for a PC?

Built quality, aluminum unibody is just too sexy.

There's no better or worse in absolute terms - just for specific needs.

There's "credible knowledge" for you, now stop flame-baiting.

Not good enough.

Edit: I wasn't actually trying to flame-bait although with a topic like this I guess it would seem that way.. Perhaps I should rename it :whistle:

There is nothing, other than a unique design, that makes a Mac worth more than a PC. In fact, if you take the price you pay for a Mac and put it into a PC you'd end up with a much faster machine, hardware wise.

The manufacturer for Apple mainboards is Asus, just like it is for Dell, HP, Compaq, etc. (for the most part anyway, I know there are exceptions)

I think you're mostly paying for the funky design, much like you pay more for a laptop than you do an equivalent desktop.

Aesthetics and OSX.

The build quality and the hardware used is second to none. That *IS* a good reason

Also, simplified, easy to use OS for all basic computer usages. Internet, Email, Photos & Videos, Music, Chat all ready to go out of the box. I guess it's not as "complicated" as Windows *can* be. Shizz usually just works too.
