MAC vs PC
December 18, 2006 1:56am CST
It's the old battle between the Apple Macintosh and Intel-based PC's. What do you think is the best? For me, in terms of design and graphics I have to go with Macintosh. However, considering that Windows is the most widely used operating system in the world it is easier to use in terms of networking. It is also cheaper than Mac and iPod works on PCs too.

Externally, a MAC have a sleeker and cleaner look. MAC OS boots much faster than Windows. The OS is also easy to learn. Plus with Bootcamp, you can install Windows Xp to a Intel Based MAC. Thus enabling you to switch from MAC OS from to Windows XP and vice versa. Windows based PC are much cheaper than a MAC. You can assemble or buy one with the same specs as that of a MAC system but way cheaper. There are also more programs that will natively run on Windows, but I think Bootcamp negates this advantage of Windows. If I have the money, I'll choose a MAC ove a Windows based PC.

The way you compare the MAC and Windows based PC makes me think that you're a computer mag editor. I agree that MAC has a sleeker look but comes with a heavy price tag. I am guessing that you own both MAC and PC since you know very well how to compare the two.

I like the ease of a Mac.Total surfing with no problems.No added virus blockers,popup blockers,spyware finders,etc.I would really love to see more people using Mac.Yes,it's more exspensive but considering all the extra software people buy to make IE better,it balances out.I still have to use IE for work and some websites.Hopefully somesay that will change.;-)
