This is one of the most controversial topics concerning computers and technology. Mac refers to the Apple Macintosh computers, while PCs refer to the computers that run on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.
The following is a comparison between the Apple Macintosh computers and the computers that run on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.
Even though Microsoft has continuously upgraded its Operating Systems, many manufacturers of PCs install crap-ware into their products, making the Windows Operating Systems quite unstable.
The Operating System is usually very clean and stable.
Many people make use of PCs that run on Microsoft Windows OS, and therefore, there is a constant supply of free and readily available programs from software developers.
Less people make use of Mac computers, and therefore, there is a limited supply of free programs from software developers.
Since many people make use of these computers, they are less secure and more vulnerable to attacks.
Many of these computers are very secure, and less susceptible to attacks by malware, viruses and other elements.
To make these computers more affordable, many of the manufacturers make use of plastic or other materials that are cheap.
Most of these computers are usually built using materials of high quality.
Most of these products are very affordable, including their peripherals.
These products and their spare parts are usually expensive, because the company’s target is the higher segment of the market.
The PCs are manufactured by different companies, while the Operating System is designed by Microsoft. Therefore, their boot time is longer when compared to Macs, because of compatibility issues.
They have a very short boot time, because both the hardware and the operating system are manufactured by the same company.
They are available in a wide range of sizes, configurations and colors.
They are only available in a limited range of sizes, structures and colors.
PCs are the best as far as both offline and online gaming is concerned. There exists a wide pool of developers who have specialized in designing games to run on this platform.
There is a narrower pool of developers who design games for use on the Mac platform.
Most of the components in PCs are held in place using screws, and therefore, conducting repairs is quite easy.
The components in Macs are attached to the mother board using glue. Therefore, in case of damage, conducting repairs on them is quite difficult
Touch screen capabilities
Most of the PCs that have been released into the market in recent years have touch screen capabilities.
Most of the Macintosh computers are not designed with touch screen capabilities, with the exception of Apple’s iPhones and iPads.
The PCs make use of hardware and drivers that have been manufactured by different companies, and therefore, compatibility issues may arise.
Since most of the hardware and drivers are manufactured by the same company (Apple), there are very few compatibility issues that may arise.
Since there is stiff competition between the different manufacturers of PC components, upgrades are cheap and readily available.
Some of the components in Macintosh computers cannot be upgraded. Upgrades for the other components are available, but are quite expensive.
