I have used both Macs and Windows boxes pretty extensively, so perhaps 
I can contribute something useful.

As far as raw speed is concerned, I believe that PCs generally deliver 
more bang for the buck, HOWEVER, this assumes that the PC is never ever 
connected to the Internet.

In other words, I feel the Mac's advantages come down more to its 
current lack of Trojan Horses, spyware, and destructive viruses, as 
well as the Unix-based operating system's far greater stability versus 
Windows. As for peripherals, I have never lacked for Mac support.
