I prefer Macs.
Please feel free to say what you prefer and why you prefer it but let others have their own opinion.

For general light use, I like the Mac.
I like the notification center and I love having less virus and malware issues.
Macs are insanely expensive though.
Otherwise, I think PCs are more user friendly when it comes to the operating system and everything that can be customized. PCs also give you WAY more bang for your buck with regards to screen size, storage, ram, and even things like disc drives.2

As an IT prof, I have to inform you that the proper term for "PC" is "Windows." MAC is also a PC.
To answer your question, I'd choose Windows. I can get more work done one a Windows PC than a MAC. MACs are pretty to look at, but are expensive (sounds like something else I know :P)
I have a MBP with Bootcamp windows.0
