I'm just making an observation from reading a random sampling of the replies.

My bias has me read this:

"I had an old PC and bought a new Mac and the Mac is better."

Are we comparing an old, 3-5 year old PC that's bloated over time with a newer spec'd Mac that's factory fresh?

That's like putting new tires on your car after your last tires were to the cords and saying, 'These new tires are great!'

An ideal (fairer) comparison would be both modern hardware - at that point, you're comparing the operating system and perhaps hardware quality.
