Before buying a new laptop, a Mac or a PC?

Before buying my new laptop, I had a nagging doubt. What should I buy, a Mac or a PC with Windows preinstalled?. Although being an horrifying doubt, I had something clear. I love coding in C Sharp (C#) and I love the tools provided to help you in your coding (IDEs). So, there was only one solution, buying a PC with Windows preinstalled. The developer tools in Windows are awesome and of very high quality. I’m not talking about the OS, I’m just talking about applications that run in one platform. C Sharp is provided in Linux by means of Mono, but it is not the same at the moment. I love Macs, their hardware and client applications are impressive and of very high quality as well, but if you are a developer you are better off with a Windows Os. I’m not a developer though, but I love coding for fun. It’s just a hobbby. I would buy a Mac if my only work with a PC was surfing the net, reading and writing emails, and doing some design stuff. Well, that’s my opinion and I hope it helps you to decide what kind of computer you need. Mac is superior to Windows, but think about the applications you need to enjoy your computer to the most.
