OK then, what does the average PC user do that they can't do on a current Mac using either the same software or equivalent Mac software? People who want to build their own computer can use Windows or Linux if they want. More power to them. Those aren't the people who necessarily would be better off with a Mac (they might, but not in general). The people who would be better off with a Mac are the ones who don't want to tinker too much, they just want to use the software thet comes with a computer and that runs right out of the box. And that's why Macs are better for the average computer user. Windows is clunky and insecure. Most people don't play games that can't be found on a Mac. Many do, but not most. I didn't call a PC a toy. I said it can be used as a toy. My point is that if the only reason that you want a PC over a Mac is games, then you can get a gaming console. Plus, the toy comment is one of my favorites because for years (long ago), PC people called Macs "toys" because they were much easier to use and easy on the eyes. So, as it seems to me, PCs are the toys because that's where the games are. Serious people could always use the Mac, but if you wanted a toy it was going to be a PC. Can you force it to be a secure and yet still functional computer without knowing a lot about the inner-workings? No... That's why the Mac is better for most people.
