A new study shows that the average PC costs $700 while the average Mac costs double that. Another alarming trend shows that 91% of retail computers sold in the United States with a price tag of $1000 or more were Macs. When it comes to the battle between PC and Mac, you really have to decide what you want the computer for in the first place. Do you think Macs are worth their price tag?

    While they may appear overpriced, they are FAR superior to PCs.

    I quite enjoy my macbook pro but at the same time i need it for the better quality film editing since i am a film major. Maybe if i was in business i would have saved on a pc. At least Macs don't crash or get near as many viruses as PCs, if they ever do at all.

    I personally have a MacBook and it's lasted ages! The PC I had on the other hand, a new Toshiba, has died for good in less than 4 years. So you're paying just as much for a Mac with generally a longer life expectancy. Sad thing though? I paid more for the Toshiba than the MacBook. There's also a built-in protection in Mac's to where you have to get your own for PCs.

    I use some in school and they're harder to deal with. I'm sure it has better applications and stuff but not going to be worth the price.

    ...great for what they are designed for. I haven't owned a Mac in over 20 years but the first one I bought in 1984 was a Macintosh 128K. I paid over $2700.00 for it but my kids learned to use it and now are all computer literate because of it.

    Mac's are like having two computers, as they also run windows programs, for the sake of those that are stuck with pc's. They have less issues of crashing or freezing. I know someone that had both kind of laptops; has told me that he will never own another pc again.

    I believe that Mac's are over-rated. PC's all the way!
