Macbook Pro 17 inch with windows on it. I'm satisfied although my battery did swell up form heat. Apple replaced it for free though as they should !

Now, I only use MacMini G4 with 1 GB ram. I love my MacMini. :p
And for the monitor I use 19" Samsung 910T LCD.

I still spare my savings to buy MacBook / MacBook Pro.

Im currently running on a Laptop, but i own about 4 diffrent PC's. I dint purchase them all, i was given some to fix, and then they changed there minds and just bought new ones, and let me keep the ones that i fixed! Im definiatly not rich or nothing to that effect.

But i find that i enjoy using PC's more then Macs, for several reasons being that i find PC's with windows based OS, are more accessible then a MAC OS. Idk, maybe its just beacuse i grew up with PC's

Never thought I would use a mac, but once I got my macbook pro os x for school I never want to go back to a PC! The best part of the laptops are the trackpads.

I use a PC. I bought the components and assembled it myself. This way the price is a lot lower compared to a ready-made system with the same performances.

Have had my MacBook Pro almost 4 years now. 17-inch is prime for designing. Loving the Adobe CS5 Suite as well

I have an iMac, it's awesome. The only draw back is that I can't take it with me to client meetings.

I hate macs but I love them at the same time... I'm probably the only one that can freeze a mac lol Macs can make me angry at time but theres no way I'll go back to a PC. I had a Mac notebook and my screen burnt out... I decided to buy a Mac desktop cause PCs are way to slow especially when you turn them on.. like geez hurry up I got things to do.

Grew up using PCs, used PC's and Mac's in college, now use both at work as well. Have an IMAC, but also running Windows 7 on bootcamp. It is nice to have options.

I have a PC desktop, a PC laptop, and a Mac laptop.

I get the impression that the idea that Macs are better for design is a relic of the days when more designers worked on Macs... our attitudes about the operating systems has yet to catch up with reality.

Sadly, people who work largely on a PC are considered to be the freaks of the design world. :-P

I learned on a Mac - then one day when the Mac lab was too full I had to try out a PC. I got my work done more quickly (at that time Macs had no right-clicking options) and felt at ease moving around, so I ultimately ended up switching. Now I do most of my work on a PC.

In my opinion, both OSs are fully capable of supporting whatever work a designer needs to accomplish; each has particular strengths such as Macs having a simpler UI. But in the end, you spend most of your time in the software apps you use, not on the desktop or in folders (aka in the OS), so it often comes down to a matter of comfort - one may be a better match with your working style than the other. And although it feeds into the stereotype, sometimes for the sake of image I'm sure some people prefer to work on a Mac, since it feeds that projection of "Hey! I'm creative!" While I think there is a Mac-bias in the design industry, I'll admit I'd be just as likely to take a Mac with me to a client meeting. :-P

Sorry about the long post... I've seen a lot of heated debates about which OS is better, and ultimately it's not really that simple, or important. We all get our work done! :-)
