PC  If you have the money, the M1 is a pretty fast chip. But pc will give you similar for much less.

I was considering a mac mini, they were on sale with the M1 during Christmas a year ago. But they only came with 8gb of ram and I had seen reviews that would cause problems with video and image editing. Getting 16gb of ram increased the price by $400. I bought a AMD gaming laptop 8core 16thread with discrete Nvidia card that could play top tier games and was faster than the M1 in multiprocessing programs like video and photo editors (slower in single processor apps )and cost $850 similar to the mac mini  but with 16gb of ram and a color accurate 144hz display with user upgradable ram and storage. I was quickly reminded why I never bought apple. There is a huge premium you pay if you can't figure out how to work PC. But they almost tricked me into the mac mini. I am not saying Macs are bad, the contrary they are good but you pay a premium.

Mac for me. I do IT for the government for a living and Windows is hilariously unstable.  Just personal preference though.

And while there are quite a number of smart people who are creative or content creators, most people who buy Apple/Mac products are people who who are not smart enough to figure out how to use a PC.

Throughout the entire 2021 calendar year, Canalys estimates that Apple shipped 28.9 million Mac models, a year-over-year increase of 28.3%. Apple had an 8.5% market share in 2021, again coming in fourth behind

8.5 percent if you EXCLUDE Chrome books from the equation. 9to5mac.com/2021/07/13/mac-market-share-q2-2021/

With a market share of 8.5 percent in 2021 it is a safe bet that most creative people and most people in general have PC's.

US sales of mac are in the higher, around 13 percent  I wonder if that means we American are not as smart as everyone else? Or just have more money than sense? LOL  www.statista.com/statistics/576473/unite...hipment-share-apple/

I know when I was editing professionally everybody used mac because they were just a lot more stable. Same at university level, same reason. It's totally preference though.

I know people that only use mac as well. I see you are from the US. In the US the market penetration for Mac is 12 percent instead of 8.5 . Apple was smart, they gave their computers to schools and children grew up using them. So even though Macs are way over priced, many people growing up already had experiencing using them. Some say macs just work, but that is not reality, they have similar problems like PC. The problem with PC, is because of their huge dominance in market share, hackers hack Windows, mac market share is so small, hackers cannot effect enough people to make it worth while. So a person with a Mac, who does not backup their computer has much less likely-hood of losing their data than a PC person. You have to back up windows, you have to do windows updates or you are at risk to millions of hackes, mac has so few hackers trying to hack it. So the perception is Mac is more reliable. Another thing, Mac has had 3 major OS reconfiguration. Power PC chip. Intel chip, and now their own M1. You cannot run old power PC programs on the new chips which users had to upgrade every time for the new hardware, also hackers would have to learn 3 operating system. Just not worth it for them, when PC still allows running of old code and you don't have to learn a new recomplied OS. PC, you can run the oldest programs from 8086 days on a PC, very backwards compatible.
