My home PC crashed, fatally (hard drive).
I'm here by virtue of another connection.
For reasons I won't go into, the crashed unit is not worth a rehab.
So, I need a new system.

I'm curious if anyone has an opinion about PC vs Mac.
I can more easily afford a PC, given that I can use some of the components of the old system and some of the software, but I feel the need to consider all the alternatives.

Folks with Macs seem to love them , but there are not many of those folks out there.
If you know anything about Macs, I'm thinking about the eMac or iMac models or a PC equivilant (I think) to an iMac.
I have no experience with a Mac.

Any advice or suggestions?
Thanks all . . .

you can buy a brand-new, reasonable pc for less than $400.00. This includes operating system and miscellaneous software. it is almost no longer worthwhile to build a pc (or use "old" parts) anymore, unless you have specific requirements.

i know little about macs. about the only thing i've heard "negative" in some time is that there is less of a choice when it comes to finding software.
