Well, that is a pretty subjective statement.  Using the Mac and using 
Windows screen readers is somewhat different, so it depends in part 
on what you are used to, and what you like.

The important thing to keep in mind is how accessible are the 
applications you need/want to use.  No one just uses a Mac or 
Windows, you do something, write, e-mail, surf the web, play music 
etc.  So your choice should primarily be dictated by what 
applications you need and want to use.
