Mac owners more likely to buy music, wear polo-necks

Interesting press release from the NPD Group: 50% of Mac users pay for downloads compared to just 16% of PC users. They’re also more likely to buy CDs.

While there are demographic differences between Mac and PC owners (anybody got a link to reliable stats on that? I think it’d be fascinating), the most obvious explanation for the big difference in paid-for downloads is that the PC download market is a frustrating, confusing pain in the arse.
