Sure... Macs are not door stops... they are expensive paperweights... You know... get norton antivirus, microsoft antispyware and be a little discriminating with your browsing... ie. no porn, and you won't have a problem with your PC. I take care of plenty of PC's and never have virus issues, get the occasional spyware issue, but other than that no problems at all.
10 Years ago, Mac was touted for being the graphics machine of choice, but today with the quality of hardware for the PC and the software being ported to the PC (see adobe) even graphics people are moving to the PC. The Mac has no edge on the PC whatsoever anymore.
It takes nothing to keep a PC running just as reliably as a Mac, but at 1/3 the price, much more in the way of accessories available, and much greater room for upgradability and expansion for the future.
People who buy Macs because they are 'more stable than a PC' are simply misinformed. There is not a single thing that a Mac can do better then a PC in today's world. Even the OS isn't as simple as Windows XP.
The way to sum this whole Mac thing up is that if it was such a better machine, it would be in the lead when it comes to market share, but instead, it's good old Billy G who saved apple from chapter 11.
People are more than welcome to use Macs... I even have a mini at home, albeit collecting dust on a shelf somewhere, but to those who try and preech that a Mac is in any way better than a PC need a simple lesson it life... "No it isn't."
