Just curious? Mac or PC? I know that the iPhone is an Apple product, but I'm a PC guy and seem to use Apple products on the go (iPhone, iPod, Newton). What is everyone else using?

I've had nothing but Windows machines since birth but both of my laptops recently stopped working so I had to get another laptop. I got a MacBook Air and I absolutely love it. I won't be purchasing another Windows PC again.

Colin,

Can you add another category (both platforms). That describes me to a tee. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. One I like to use at home; the other, I use at work.

My preference is to the Mac, but I don't want to bias the poll by saying I use a Mac or PC when the reality is I use both.

1 built by me for gaming
1 Samsung Q1 UMPC for travel

3 Macs
1 broken G4
1 outdated iMac Bondi Blue
1 24" iMac aluminum

You never know...

I've installed Windows XP in a Paralels virtual machine. To be honest, I use my virtual machine a lot less than I thought I would when I made the switch last July. To maximize application efficiency, some applications are better run in native mode (handbrake). I've run Windows Media Encoder which is an extreme CPU hog in virtual machine mode. Took little longer, but still worked.

As Mikey from the Life cereal commercials would say, Try it, you'll like it. :)

HP Desktop and Gateway Laptop both w/ vista home premium. Wouldn't mind a MacBookPro, but I can't see three times the price of my 17" laptop that never gives me a problem.
