My advice is, go and try it out at any applecentre. ask lots of questions to clear your doubts, and then make your decision.
And cos i know you'll choose a mac, welcome to the world of Macintosh!

hehe, I thought u gonna give computer history lessons..
anyway, original PC was created by IBM and was termed IBM PC
Apple also came out ard same period, usually called Apple Computer
other brands subsequently came out by modifying IBM designs, they
were known as IBM clones then..
so how apple as Apple Computer, mabbe AC for short? hahah
and PC for the rest of the IBM PCs / clones / compatibles....
