Seriously, you mac people think because you overpay for a computer, a mac, that its better at running programs, I say bullcrap! Apple uses the same parts that can go into a pc. Except they make their own motherboards and cases. The difference is that apple does the assembly and ups the price tenfold! You could build a pc with the same hardware as in a mac for a quarter to half the cost! That is an incredible savings! Also you get to actually use a library of million plus applications and games. With a mac, you are limited to what apple allowed to be developed for their system(but not before they take a cut of the money) Apple is a lying two-faced company, that specializes in fooling the average non-tech person into thinking they are superior, while taking their money.
The fact is you can do anything on a pc you can on the mac, you can't do everything you do on a pc on a mac, because mac is a closed system. There is a lot of programs that aren't on macs. And if you are a gamer, apple has a tiny library of games, mostly 5+ year old titles. You are also limited to hardware that mac allows, so upgrading is very hard, they would rather you ditch the machine and pony up the cash for a whole new system, while on a pc you can upgrade old parts for new and save a lot of money! Graphic programs don't work better on the mac. Maybe they loaded faster when mac used power pc's but who knows, that is not the case today, as both machines use the same parts...they both do a good job. Don't buy into apples horrible tv marketing. If you do, you must be very gulable and buy into anything you see on tv.
For gaming apple sucks there are 10000's of games on windows pcs, not to mention content creation and programing, your options are limitless on a pc and you can use 3ds max, all the adobe products, visual studio and every other content creation product out there. Mac limits what they want you to buy. You are also limited in what you are allowed to access on the platform in terms of programing, apple is stingy with everything and wants to keep it a closed system so they can rob people of hard earned money. The last good apple system was from the era when Wozniak was still on board and that computer was the apple II series, ever since the Macintosh, its been run by Jobs who is not a tech person, but a marketing person, and hence the super closed system, and lack of content. All so they have complete control. Its ironic as that was what they criticized IBM for doing in the early 80's...Look how things have changed.
If you had trouble with your pc, you probably bought a junky pc with low ram and integrated graphics, you can't say all pcs are bad because you don't know what you are doing or bought a crappy rig. Do some research, use your head and build it yourself or have a friend give you advice. Just buying a mac because you are brainwashed from advertising, is not being smart. And if you are going to buy a pc, please don't buy an overpriced dell!(they are almost as bad as mac for overcharging!) If you must buy a p rebuilt then at least get an HP, sony or acer if on a budget.
