P.C or Mac?

Hey i am going to buy a computer but don't know what to get. I was wondering what you lot thought about the pros and cons of P.Cs or Macs. I am going to be using it for Photoshop, Illustrator and other such fun stuff. I am also trying to decide if i should go for a laptop or desktop. I dont want to spend loads of money and get it wrong. I also need a scanner and printer so if any body knows a cheap place to get any of these shiny objects please give me a shout. Cheers.

Illustrative is an international festival for illustration and graphics. This year it will be held in Berlin with expert judges from the industry. The 2009 competition is open to designers over 21, awarding creativity and innovation in contemporary illustration and graphic design. The prize is worth 6000 Euros, as well as publications and agency contracts.. and one winner will be invited to design a Swatch watch!

Have a look at some of the artists from previous shows... there is a fantastic variety and some really amazing work.
The deadline for entries is not til 30th September, so there's lots of time to really work on something personal, creative and innovative. For more info and conditions of entry have a look at Illustrative online.
