Leopard or Vista

I'm going to buy a new computer.....

I'm having trouble deciding on getting a new Mac with Leopard or a new PC with Vista.

I went to a "new to the mac" workshop over the weekend and was definitely impressed with Leopard.

I've looked at the most common things I do on my PC and Mac seems to have it all.

My one problem is being limited to using itunes. I listen a bunch of different music all the time on my PC with Rhapsody. I don't want to give that up.

Anyone know of a service like Rhapsody for the Mac? Yahoo music is underway but not for Mac.

Thanks,
Paul

Vista is  still rated as a "don't buy" yet by most industry observers. If you buy a new PC, get one with windows XP. Most OEM's still offer it because of the Vista problems. Buy the Mac and run a copy of Windows Xp  virtualized using parallels or  vmware. Music downloading and playing is not a very processor intensive activity and you should not be able to tell you are running a virtual Os at all. You can also run Windows XP native on its own partition if you want to do any Windows gaming. Also according to this article Rhapsody is now Mac usable.  http://www.seekingalpha.com/article/4846-realnetwork-s-rhapsody-gets-mac-enabled-positive-buzz-ensues-rnwk-aapl
