To Mac or Not to Mac?




Macs versus PCs which one is better?

Mac VS. PC

If you’re reading this article, you’re interested in the comparison of Macs versus PCs. Maybe you’re on the cusp of purchasing a new machine, or you’re deciding on whether your company should migrate from one to the other. Hopefully, the below article will help you make an informed decision on your next purchase(s).

Design

For a long time now, Macs have crushed PCs on pure beauty by simplicity, and unfortunately for PC users, this is still the case. PC manufacturers such as Asus with its Zenbook, Dell with its Ultrabook line, and Microsoft with its Surface have made tremendous strives in design. However, the Macbook Air still surpasses its competitors with a symbolic balance of style, minimalism, and sleekness.

Usability

It should come as no surprise PCs, mainly PCs with Windows, control almost 90% of the market. Most offices will consist of most PCs, and even the ones that aren’t primarily PC-based will support PCs. In addition, most hardware and software components, routers, switches, servers, monitors are designed with PCs in mind. Considering an increased demand for Apple products and an increased migration towards the cloud, this is slowly changing. However, PCs still hold a victory in this column.

Security

At least once a week, a Windows user will come to me stating his computer is slow, and nine times out of ten, it’s virus related. Rarely is this the case on a Mac? Windows with UAC (User Account Control) and Security essentials (free virus scanner) has made significant strides in protecting its users; however, Mac, with its Unix kernel and its strict app store, still comes out ahead in this category.

Point = Mac

Power

Macs have always been the choice of design and photography specialist because of their performance and graphics capabilities. Even though Apple has recently migrated to the same chips used by PC”s, Intel chips, this performance has not to be negated. Yes, PCs can be customized to provide the same specs; however, the Mac OS, in combination with the hardware, provides a reliable powerhouse that over time outperformed most PCs.

Point = Mac

Backup

This last category is a tough one; on the one side, Mac, with its built in Time Machine software, makes recovery of files and even operating systems a breeze. On the other hand, if there’s physical damage to the unit, such as a bad hard drive PC”s hands down make for a much easier repair. Typically to replace a hard drive in a PC requires nothing more than a screwdriver. However, with most Mac models, special tools are required. With an iMac, suction cups are even necessary. With that said, this category goes to Mac. You’ll typically get a few years out of your machine before the hardware starts to go bad.

Point = Mac

Recommendation, get a Mac. For Windows users, Mac does take some getting used to, but once you go, Mac, you’ll never go back. There are some trade-offs as described above, and you must also make the best decision for you. Each person is different, but from an objective point of view, Mac is hands down surpassing PCs.
