The same can't be said from what I see on pcs. Between hardware conflicts, viruses, etc there are problems that crop up all the time.

this is comparing apples and oranges. you are comparing one system (mac) that is optimized for one kind of software etc. and all kind of different configurations a pc may be based on. obviously there are tons of crappy pcs out there since basically anyone can build their own by simply putting all the different pieces together. so this myth you are repeating here is based on the fact that in this way you are basically comparing 2000$ worth hardware with hardware that may be worth as much as 300$.

what you should compare is a top of the line built pc in the same price range as what macs are sold for and what you'd get would be surely something that looks worse but that performs as good if not better than a mac.

it's the same kind of situation that is present on the mobile phone market where you get this iOS vs. android thing. android is obviously running on many devices that can't be compared to an iphone or something but compare an iphone with top of the line android devices and the winner won't be that clear and if there was a winner it probably wouldn't be the iphone.
