Need new computer but what kind?

My Dell xps laptop just gave me the blue screen of death and its the second time ive had the computer since 2006 so it still has xp on it. Basically ive been looking around and i cant figure out if i want an apple computer or a microsoft based computer. Which one has the better operating system, is faster easier to use stuff like that. I know apple's cost more im just trying to find a good computer no matter the brand so can i get some help?

What do you do or intend to use it for?

it will be used for school primarily but it need to have blue ray player and be fairly good with editing media and also needs a good writing program like microsoft word or something. Blue screen error is Total Windows System FAILURE.

Wow now there is a question you never hear.

Which is easier to use? A mac.

Which is a real computer? A PC.

If all you want to do is browse the internet, word processing, and uploading music to your ipod, than a Mac is for you.

For everything else, you'll want a PC.
