PC or MAC

I am buying a laptop, and i need opinions on wether i should buy a macbook pro or a dell studio. I need actual legit reasons, not like 'because macs look cool". I built a desktop pc that is running at 3.2 ghz with 8 gigs of ram, and ive gone to school for pc maintenance. but i think id like to try the mac. I will be using almost every adobe program as well as other high demand programs. any input would be awesome

I will never in my life buy another PC after owning a Mac. They are much easier to use, period.

Surfing, word documents, spreadsheets, music, pictures, videos, tons of 6.0l pfds. Currently looking for a good CAD program for some house renovations. I was going to dual boot and run all of my truck stuff on here but I decided just to keep it on my old PC

I have both and prefer the mac in every way, its quicker running multiple programs and I can still use windows on it if I want. I have photoshop cs4 extended and it just speeds through any work I have to do. My mac is outdated now and its still faster then I need. 2.33ghz core 2 duo, 3gb ram, macbook pro 17in.

I went from a PC to a mac and that was a great decision. I will never again own anything other than a mac. Once you get used to osx than it is the most user friendly computer you will ever use.
