A Mac is objectively a personal computer, even if it doesn't usually fall into the category of "PC" (in the Mac vs. PC debate, for example). I'm not sure where that whole nomenclature came from, but a Mac really should be considered a PC.

I could easily guess that it's something to do with marketing. Apple wants to avoid terminology that makes its products seem similar to their competition. To their credit, though, they actually set themselves apart well enough without having to BS people into not calling something what it actually is. It just calls the necessity of the blatantly false argument into question. I can fully understand that Macs are built differently and with different hardware goals in mind than other personal computers without actually confusing them with Dells or HPs, because I'm not an idiot. Though then again, I dunno. Maybe a lot of people are. Maybe it's the passion behind the phrase "A Mac is NOT a PC" that convinces people more than actual technical details.

Then again, Nintendo builds their consoles differently from how Sony and Microsoft apparently build consoles and they don't go around telling people that a "Nintendo" is not a console.
(Actually that might yet happen if Nintendo wants to stay in the market...)

Depends on which one we're talking about, I own three, not including my servers.

My main computer is a Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2) that runs Windows XP Home Edition on the Oracle Virtualbox. The manufacturer is Acer, it's an Aspire M5630 model with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU (E4500) at 2.19/2.20 GHz. It has 3.00 GB of RAM and it's a 32-bit OS. I play SMBX, make Adventure of Knux comics, and sprite on this computer, I also use it for social things regarding the Internet.

My secondary computer is my gaming PC, I don't have the specs right now, but I'll post them once I get them (I haven't been on the PC in 3 weeks).

My servers, or should I say my old XP, is a Windows XP Home Premium that I modified with 4.00 GB of RAM, it doesn't have a graphics card installed, nor a sound card, but it can run almost all of my servers. (Minecraft, Terraria, Garry's Mod, etc.). There isn't really anything special at all about it besides the fact that it was my first computer.
I used to be 8bitmushroom but not anymore.
