If money is no issue, then logic points to the PC; this is true.

? It's usually true when money IS the issue. PC/Hackers main motivation is almost always to spend less (or the same and get more performance) and get more headache.

When you rely on the computer for business headache means lost money.

That's the thing. People who build their PCs (or Macs) claim they saved money, but often don't realize that they paid with their time instead. If your PC cost $300 less to build than a comparable Mac, but you spent 4 hours resolving(or even just researching) some component issues, and you can typically charge $100/hr for your services, then the PC ended up costing more than the Mac.
