Apple Mac vs. Microsoft Windows: Marketing vs. performance

A significant performance differance is not noticeable for the PC and Macs if they are both new machines
but with the test of time PC's performance drops significantly attributing to the bloated registry and the fragmented file system. Fine tuning is needed time to time to boost the PC's performance. Also a PC comes installed with a boat load of inefficient and under performing OEM applications which is a drag on the machine. Effort must be made to uninstall those applications to boost performance. Macs work superbly right out of the box.
Thanks for your insight, Manoj! I'd love to hear how others weigh. In my experience - and I've worked professionally and extensively on both machines - I don't notice a significant performance lag over time when comparing one to another. Maintenance is necessary for anything. However, I hear graphic designers say time and again they prefer Macs to PCs... there must be a reason, but I still have not determined whether that reason is marketing-based or performance-based (and perception of performance would remain marketing-based).
Anyone else care to weigh in?
