How to choose between a Mac and a PC?

Simple. Is price the major factor in your purchase decision?
YES -> buy a PC
NO-> buy a Mac
Apologies to anyone who was expecting more. FYI, six months ago I purchased a MacBookPro, it had been 20 years since I my last Mac.

UPDATE 3/23/2013 - Never looked back from this decision, and have become a 100% Mac household. For startups in NYC, almost all are going with Macs. For developers, a non-brainer.

Jon -- love your blog, which I just discovered. Mac vs. PC... I switched back to a mac a few years ago and have never regretted it. I recently won a Windows Vista powered Sony "netbook". When setting it up for my wife (who I re-gifted this machine to), I was stunned by the idiosyncrasies of Windows Vista. Setting up Skype turned out to be quite challenging. Every time I switched skype on to use the internal camera, some other app popped up which noticed that I wanted to use the camera... and then tried to 'help' me. I have more stories like this one, but am afraid my poor wife will have to suffer through them ;-)
