I used to work on a PC then I switched to a Mac. But now I want to buy another computer for web design. Should I buy a PC or a Mac?

If you want to do web design then I would first check if the Mac or PC will run all of the current web design software. If the Mac can they I would go for a Mac because of the better visual quality. ( Some of the apple monitors are fantastic.)

Since you are familiar with both.....I would choose whichever type of computer you can get the best service on in Malta. Mac's are great for desktop publishing...but everything else ??...it's easier to get Win compatible software for sure! + you wont find too much support on this forum for a Mac ...not to say there aren't some good Mac forums out there.

When all else fails...start parts swapping!

I agree, check for support and software availability for both and go with the one that will be easier to repair or have repaired, and will have a good variety of software available.

Greets --

I've had two Mac's -- a color classic and a 6100 Power PC -- my wife uses an aging powerbook...

In my opinion --
++ Mac's are easier to use and less hassle than PC's
-- Mac hardware costs half again as much
-- Mac software choices are much more limited
-- Compatibility with other peoples software will be more of a hassle with a Mac
-- You can't slap any old piece of hardware onto a Mac, as you (pretty much) can with a PC...

I just got a new machine -- I considered getting a Mac -- but it was never a serious contender...
