I think one of the classic arguments is the Virus one: explain to the PC people that Macs are bout 99% less vulnerable to Viruses, SpyWare, AdWare, Trojan Horses, Worms etc. That'll usually get a rise out of them.
You can also show them things like Exposé and fast user switching which might not make Macs better but does make them cooler!!
Also, show them iLife, if you have it, and watch them drool...

:mac: Don't forget to think. Differently. :mac:

@austin:
looking up your address now. :radioacti
@pbg4man:
macs are 100% virus free.
also, macs are way faster, for example, my 450mhz g4 cube runs at p4 1.5ghz pc, its because of os x, its stable and smooth and functions much more efficiently allowing iot to go faster. plus theyre easir to use, and dont forget that theyre not cr*aptastic grey boxes, theyre almost pieces of art:mac:

And if they bring up any of that "Well, you can't play video games." Tell them, that's what we have PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube for.

Tell them, that you spend 100% of your time computing, and ask them how much time they spend scanning for spyware and viruses.

Ask them, if they like downloading security updates all the time.

Tell them, you want some reasons why they don't like macs. Don't let them stop at "Well, I think their crap." Most likely, these people have never used a mac before, so they really don't have any good reason to hate macs. Try to stump them around that question. They'll usually start making up stuff by then.

1. Macs don't get viruses, trojan horses, or anything of that sort.

2. The NSA has rated OS X to be the most secure computing system ever.

3. The NSA has backdoors installed on Windows :-P

4. Macs are built on UNIX, Windows just has a silly port of Cygwin

5. Even though Windows has 10 times the apps OS X has, all the good ones (iLife sans iTunes, etc.) are available on OS X only.

6. Ask a PC user how often they reboot because of kernel panics and memory leaks. Then, explain (lie?) to them that you haven't rebooted in months (but explain to them what putting your Mac "sleep" is.)

7. Internet Explorer is integrated into the OS so tightly, if you try and remove it - the OS will break. That's not computing freedom.

8. Office 2004 on a Mac > Office 2003 on a Wintel box

9. Macs are practically guaranteed to work 5 years after they are bought and sometimes far past that. Dells and Compaqs are so obsolete within a year, they're practically useless.

10. Three words: Steve Ballmer's Monkeydance

11 (Extra Credit): A few years back, a guy got scammed out of his payment when selling his PowerBook on eBay. A bunch of Mac-heads from Chicago volunteered to take a baseball bat to the scammer's head if so desired. Try getting that kind of loyalty from a community of HP users. :mac:

Don't even bother arguing, it is just a difference in opinions. You might as well argue what tastes better, coke or pepsi.(yeah I know I have said that before)

That's silly. Coke tastes better than Pepsi. But Diet Pepsi tastes much better than Diet Coke.

Actually, I usually drink root beer.

And yes, I think this is a pointless discussion. But entertaining, very, very entertaining.

And, oh yeah, the Windows security architecture sucks. Those viruses and spyware/adware apps aren't just a coincidence. :mac:

Show them the megahertz myth clip from the apple keynote.... it will show them that the g4 proccessor is so much faster then the p4... let them know that the current g4 speeds on the pb is up to 1.5ghz but the g5 is still way faster, tell them how the g5 2.5ghz will destroy any pentium on the market, and you can get a mac with 2 of them. Show them how the mac osx operating system works, and if they don't think it is better, then atleast they will think it looks better, and yes stick with the classic argument about viures, the macs don't get them.
