Sell your PC and Mac and get a brand new computer that's x10 better than both
That's not a bad idea in itself. There are plenty of computer parts that you can buy to build your own computer with your own specs and it'll cost less if you do it right, but you gotta put time into it. For example, you want a great processor that you can overclock? Try building around the i5 2500k, where you can-
HP Desktops usually are the best, especially with the Ubuntu OS on it.
Are you serious? Although I've got nothing against HP personally, I hear it's kinda difficult (though not impossible) to upgrade them. And you're paying for another person to build your computer, rather than build it yourself... Ubuntu OS is nice, and although I have only a little bit of experience with it, I'd prefer Windows 7 over it (because I know what I'm doing in 7, although I will probably triple boot my next computer with 7 and two Linux-based OS's just to play around).
All in all, branding doesn't make computers better... Specs do, and branding is in no way a spec (regarding the computer as a whole). You get what they build........
