What do you have, PC or Mac?

am planning on upgrading to a Mac Book Pro for my design business, which would be nice.
simple and effective design solutions

(I just envy you guys, who can afford a Mac computer!)
I will not go into detailes because I don't want to embarrass myself, but I am on a PC way below $1000
Like my mom used to say... "Your time will come"
I'm thinking of upgrading to an imac but I have to win a couple of contests first (hope the CH's are reading this, lol)

It took me close to a year to build what I wanted (I don't use credit cards on principle so I save up for what I want) -- I have a quicksilver tower that can accommodate virtually unlimited upgrades. I also have a 20" lcd cinema display (the groovy lucite easel kind and no dead pixels) bought in great used condition, a rocstor 250g ext hd (retail) and harman/kardon soundsticks that kick some serious gluteus maximus, a wacom intuos 6x8 bought new after searching for the best deal for 2 months... I built, over time, a well-muscled mac system for well under $1,000, and won't need to upgrade any time soon.
I could have built like this for a pc, but having worked with them for many years, I knew I'd be throwing my money away.
And if you think it takes too much time to do this... between my business and my contracts I averaged around 80-100 hrs/week during much of the time I was putting this puppy together.

Oh, and edited to say... there's a reason there are different OS's. If you love PC's, the way they're set up, the logic and flow of them, buying a mac only because it's the industry standard may not be the way to go. Sticking with what you love is always the best policy!

Have used many Macs throughout the years, but currently my main station is a G5 1.6mhz, then i've got a G4, a G3 that i'm using as a server, an ibook another couple G3's that I haven't found a use for yet and a couple old 7500's.
I think I have about 8-9 systems around here, but only use 4 regularly.
