I still use my PC for Word, Excel and Dreamweaver. I'll be 100% switcher when I can afford these applications on the Mac. I use the Mac mini for listening to music, watching DVD's, email, and browsing the web with Safari.

I still have a Dell Desktop for the wife who can't understand Apple and my Inspiron 1150 notebook which I love and now use it to play my PC baseball games.

Dual. A Mac Mini with OS X and Ubuntu Linux on a Dell laptop.

My wife has her own Dell laptop with XP, but she does a great job of keeping it spyware and virus-free, so I haven't pushed her to try OS X or Linux. Someday, maybe.

An older one.. an Inspiron 2650. I've popped a faster cpu, more memory, and a faster hd in it, so it's still pretty useable.

I have an Inspiron 4000 that's on its last legs. Sad My iBook is doing double duty!

I still use both. I use the Macs for most everything that I do.

However, I have a Pentium 4 570J @ 3.8 GHz machine with 2 GB RAM, WD Raptor SATA Drive, PCI-Express, nVida GeForce 6800 GT OC, SoundBlaster Audigy II ZS. It makes a far better gaming rig than my Macs.

I also run Photoshop on both my Mac and the above PC. I have too many custom plugins for Windows that won't run on my Macs.

That being said, everything else is far more enjoyable on my Macs.

I use my Mini for most things, but use Slackware Linux on everything else including my IBM Thinkpad.

Mini is my first & only Mac (for the moment). I use it for digital video & photography work plus regular PC stuff (email, web, budgeting, etc.). Still run a Wintel HTPC. It's a homebrew with an Athlon XP 1800+. Used as HTPC only. Had been doing digital photography/video on it but moved all that to the Mini.
