I own my sig rig and a 2013 13'' macbook air. 

 

 

Well, a mac is nothing more than an exceptional laptop with a good linux distribution. It is really well built and fun to use. Most major software are also available on OSX, as well as a good amount of steam game (actually a lot more than you would think). 

 

But PCs are PCs. They can be as cost effective as you want, while you can still go full retard on them. I think that they are the superior platform, but only because almost every piece of software and hardware out there was meant to run on windows. 

I must say that I enjoy using my macbook a lot more than my desktop. As someone else mentioned somewhere, the apple ecosystem is a wonderful yet stupidly expensive garden to live in.

My point is that both platforms are similar.
