I'm comfortable with PC, Should I buy a Mac?

    Without going into preference/opinions, I can tell you that the best upside is actually saving money. I got my first Mac (iMac) in 2007 when I was sick of going buying a new PC every couple years. Sure, it was 2-3x as much as the PCs, but it still runs to this day. Whenever I go visit my parents I use it for work, and though it's a little slow, it still runs like a champ. There's no way in hell I could still be using a PC from 2007. I would have gone through at least 3 or 4 since then.

    Macs are an investment, and as long as you treat them like an investment, they can last a decade. With that said, you don't need to drop $2k on a Mac to get a good one. You can easily buy a 2010-2012 Mac for a really good deal, and it will still have another 5-8 years in it's life.

      As someone using a PC from 2006, I don't know what you're doing wrong.

        I do a lot of heavy video rendering, so maybe that's it. But to my knowledge, I'm not alone in the fact that PCs only lasted me 2-3 years before they became virtually unusable.
