Or because PC gaming is much more complicated.

It is. Console gaming is made for widespread use, I don't even know what I was thinking with my previous post. xD

Is Windows more versatile? Yes. Does it provide more freedom for customisation? Debatable. Is it more vulnerable for viruses and other nasties? Yes.

Is OSX intuitive, easier to use and lighter? Yes. Is it cheaper? Yes. Does it run better on the hardware that is designed for it? Yes.

People who use the price thing as justification for Mac's being crap are stupid. I bought my MacBook Pro 2 years ago and it's still running as well as it was the day I bought it. I haven't even had to think twice about forking out for anything more to do with my computer since then. Would I be able to say the same thing about an equivalently spec'd PC that had been used as much as mine in that time? Absolutely not. The programs I use (Photoshop, Illustrator, Ableton Live and Final Cut Pro) all work flawlessly on my computer despite the fact the tech in it is at least 3 years past what is actually cutting edge. It still starts up faster than any of my friends PC's and doesn't even have a solid state drive etc. and I have NEVER had a problem with it not being able to run a program or application (including games) so really that argument is irrelevant.

I'm not saying it's better, it's different. It IS however better for me and is easily the best decision I ever made. I was brought up with Windows my entire life but the simplicity and efficiency of OSX absolutely blows Windows out of the water. I'm not even sure exactly sure where the benefit of windows is over the new Mac OS's aside from versatility for running programs. But regardless, Mac's these days have a much larger library of applications than they are given credit for. I can play Starcraft 3 and Diablo 2 and I haven't had an issue with compatibility apart from League of Legends which is really a non-issue in the grand scheme of things.

You guys should consider being more respectful of other people who chose not to use the same things as you rather than being elitist pricks about everything. Which is exactly what you accuse Mac users of being ironically enough.
This needs to be reposted as much as possible.

I don't hate apple, I'm just use to PC. However I do have an iPod Touch but thats a different story. If I was to buy a phone I'd probably get a blackberry or an iPhone, though some of those Windows 7 phones do have potential.

Mac Books are expensive as hell though. There just isn't enough in it for me to invest that kind of money.

All I play is Minecraft on my Mac.

Never been a fan of PC gaming. I see it's benefits, but it's just not my style.

Honestly, I just didn't find some of them intuitive to use. It's hard to explain. Even though I had been using a Mac at work for awhile, I still found myself having to search around for things. Not so, with most PCs.

I do like iPods.

I think people evaluate what they need, and then make their choice. For example, my Droid works perfectly for my needs. Why buy an iPhone (and then upgrade it even though the previous version works fine), when I can use the same money to buy a phone AND something else? It's not about being poor or frugal, but about making good economic sense, which many people don't have. Now, I wouldn't even need texting and internet (I didn't utilize texting until December 2010 and didn't get a cell phone until 2007), but other people's usage of their phones (constant texting and the ability to organize on the fly rather than plan beforehand) have dictated that I have the capability to text and internet access in case I have to find a place (honestly, if people actually set things up, I wouldn't have needed a phone in the first place, however, they were always changing plans at the last minute).

If I only watch 10 channels on TV, why pay for 100, you know?
