    I have a Dell Latitude E6430s with Windows 7 Enterprise.

    -i7-3520m, 16GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive

    I run virtual computers on it and sometimes switch between Windows 7, 8.1, and Ubuntu.

    Used Macs for a while (iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro) then switched to Windows desktops and laptops since the GIS software I use isn't Mac compatible.

    Very recently a Mac OS X user. Bought a rMBP 13" over the weekend 😀
    Still have Windows 7 on my desktop though.

    Technically not my Macs since they were purchased by University/Department which won't allow me to modify anything. Was just easier and cheaper to get a Windows laptop.

    Nah. Boot Camp loses the OS X driver support, and Intel's default ones aren't great. Battery life also takes a big hit.

    Maybe if I were to buy Parallels.

    No. It runs within OS X, so you still get the Apple drivers and keep the great battery life

    Using OS X, Mavericks on my 2012 MBP.

    Also run Win 7 on a self-built desktop that is now more of a file server but it can still run games.

    Have never had a reason to, since PC hardware is faster for the same price, and has a far larger software library. Peripherals are usually cheaper as well.

    If I owned a Mac I would basically own a really expensive PC, since I would never have a reason to run the Mac OS.

    A Windows 8.1 desktop, I might get a Windows 8.1 laptop for the next semester. I used to have a Windows 7 laptop but I gave that to my Mom after I built my W8 desktop.
    I'm gonna get flak but I'd rather have Sense over Stock Android for my daily driver.
