With a Mac you pay a few hundred for the fashion statement it makes.

If you don't run MS apps, Word, Betangel, etc., get a Chromebook. Cheap and none of the Windows hassle, no viruses. I've used one for 4 years and wouldn't go back to Windows if you gave me a PC for free.

Chromebooks only come in laptops. It's basically a Chrome browser with access to cloud applications. It can't run WIndows software.

A Mac can't run Windows software either (without some serious dicking around). So it can't run Betangel for example.

A word of advice. A friend asked me to setup a new Windows 8 computer for them. It was a horrible experience. Tablet touchscreen features on a laptop was a terrible idea. Get a demo of whatever PC you intend to buy as it will be very different to your current Vista machine. TBH a Chromebook will be most like what you have now.

@pxb agree Win 8 is horrible but if the OP is buying new he should get it supplied with Win 10 which is pretty much OK.

I use an HP with win 10 - no problems. I went for fast delivery of data In the punting busibess fast computers are essential, so you need a powerful computer. Say at least I Core 7  64 bit  3.40 GHz or more.- DESKTOP

Processor speed is irrelevant. But 4GB RAM is a minimum. The new site gets unstable when RAM is low.
