Which type of computer is best?

Ok, so my father has offered to pay for HALF of a new computer. But which type is the best? Macs are very aesthetic, but expensive. I also would be dual booting it with windows. PC's are cheaper, but sometimes that also reflects in the hardware. My only requirement is that it be gaming compatible. Big monitor, if it's like a iMac and has one built in. High performance graphics. I'd like atleast 4gb of memory, but 8+ would be delightful. Harddrive space isn't really an issue, since I am currently using about 60 gb. I have something like $400 right now. I could probably make that around 800 - 900 by the end of the summer. So a Mac is defiantly a possibility. Also, I'm a student so I get a $100 dollar rebate from the Mac store.

Dell = Overrated!
They're more expensive performance wise.
Most companies are...
Dell rocks. They have a PC for $999 AUD which is even cheaper in Americam dollars

But do they perform well? That's the biggest issue.
No. They have a wonderful tendency to die suddenly as well or something goes drasticly wrong. Not to sound fanboy-ish but if you want something that's gonna last and perform stick with a mac. Apple computers also hold there value very well if you care for it, think as it as almost an investment!

After reading your previous posts, it looks like you don't want to build one yourself. However, http://tinyurl.com/o8zbu9 says how to make a very nice gaming PC for under $800. That is in your budget. Check it out!
well....the BEST thing to do is build the computer yourself. I know you say its too much money but if you wait for good deals on sites like newegg your gonna get a lot better deal on a lot better hardware, and plus you get to customize it to your own needs, and you wont be buying a computer thats loaded with advertisments (A.K.A. Vista on a store-bought pc; usually loaded with junk programs and such) For gaming, you can take out Compaq, eMachines, Gateway (unles you plan to spend around $1,500 to $2000 dollars for something resembling a gaming rig)...this list goes on. The only good cheap one i know of is Dell, honestly. My $400 laptop from Dell runs Call of Duty 4 pretty well. But if you are truly insistent on keeping from dell, you can dish out for an Alienware. Macs...uughh...i can see where going for one and dual booting windows with it would work, and the rebate, but macs seem too costly compared to what they have in terms of hardware, but thats my opinion.
