You can't buy a disk that is Mac & PC formatted.
You can reformat either to either though
you can get software for macs that allows you to read pc formatted disks though

Disks are generally suplied formatted to save you time. If you want to format them to MAC/PC then you can.
Most manufacturers will supply unformatted disks cheaper than the formatted variety
