I already have a desktop pc thats all modded, so im fine with windows, but i was considering trying out mac if there were enough reasons that appealed to me. i also want to learn linux, but having never used it before, i dont know if it works on both mac and pc hardware achitecture. i plan to just use it for school and to keep myself entertained at work. if you dont think i should get a mac, let me know why and suggest a manufacturer of laptop pcs based on your experience with dependabilty, costumer service, etc. thanks so much!
