    I may be getting a new Power mac and wanted to know if anyone here likes it better then the pc for burning dvd's. I dont use my pc for video editing because of the nightmares in crashing and configuring, so i though of jumping to the Mac.

    Dvd shrink has worked wonderfully for me and i have no problem with it, except for a glitch here and there. But i am thinking some other types of editing with it and was wondering is anyone likes one over the other.

    Everything I hear about the Macs is great. So it may be hard to refuse getting one. Ive always been a PC guy but am tired of the unstable systems. It got to the point where i would build one for audio editing, one for dvd shrink and another for other stuff. I am wondering if Macs are more reliable doing all of this on one machine.

    Anyone who has a Mac, please give me your input, thanks

    I've never used a Mac, so I can't really say anything about it. I have become pretty good at using my PC and keeping it healthy, and there are tons more apps out there for PC than Mac, so I guess I'd recommend PC.

    Like the other guys my choice is the PC. I have used Windows 95/98/SE & ME as my operating systems, and I spent many hours trawling through various errors.

    Windows XP Pro has made my computing life a lot more stable.

    I like a PC as personal preference.But I also like the mac.The mac is good for design applications such as adobe and music.

    you need to get over to mac. i just got a new mac mini. and they are way more stable than the pc. i had a cheap dell crap out on me. so i switched to mac and i'm loving it. true, there are not a lot of apps you can use.. but they do have "mac the ripper" . "dvd2onex", and toast. they've just released the new faster powermacs with 16x dl burnders. thats freakin awesome. if you have any questions on those. check out http://www.macmall.com

    They're probably not as good as the CCE/Rebuilder combo though...

    Man, I wish they would make a DVDShrink for the Mac. I love it on the pC, its is THE simplest program to use for copying movies. I consider it as easy to use as a toaster, because its popping a disc in and replacing it a few minutes later, the drive even pops it out for you, how simple can that be.

    I took a gander at the dvd for Mac burning guide and my head started spinning.
