Mac versus PC
May 16, 2018
Mac versus PC
Have used PCs most of my computing life and swapped to a Mac this year. Like most have mentioned hardware is neither here or there but it's the software that does it. I got tired of windows and it's many gripes. I'm much happier and even more productive on Mac OS. I'm no fanboy but I like using something that works well.
How was your switch? I find it a little hard to get used to macOS.
Otman Zaib not easy at first. The extra function key on the keyboard has thrown me a bit along with needing to relearn shortcuts. The OS itself has taken some getting used to but the more I'm using it the more I'm discovering how good it is. Small UI details make a big difference. It's hard to compare by text but after using windows for most of my life Mac OS feels like a breath of fresh air and has made using the computer fun again.
I built a PC and put MacOS on it... May dual boot with win10
You guys need to step your game up

Such a weird show towards the end
Rob Anthony O'Rourke Lost?
Switched from Mac to Windows and will never go back
Apple sux :/
From an IT guy, both. Some things are better accomplished on one over the other. Getting pretty sick of Windows updates though lol
You know with windows 10 pro and server 2016, they can be disabled, or manually flashed...
Jeremiah Wolfe thanks bro! Might just do that
Liam J. Haley yeah its hidden, but if your experienced in IT, it's right there in the group policy settings.
Joke in our office, is those who use macs only know how to use dreamweaver and it's the truth with all of the recent college grads we've been interviewing
Uhh, I can't imagine anything than mac
Mac retina display are very good for design , and the recording software etc are the best . but if you're considering about gaming , of course PC are the best . meanwhile if for photoshop , AI , after effect or premier pro is depend on your pc spec and your monitor as well (for Mac you're no need to worry about these things ,they're design more designer and music engineering use ) , so far high end performance pc and high end monitor are more cosy then Mac of course PC can be custom build and more friendly about your budget . Mac Performance can be replace , but retina display can't be replace . between IOS and Window , i personal suggest Window . for me ? I choose PC . * Please do not judge my English i am still learning, i know i've made alot of grammar mistake *
I use both. ;)
Chromebook works fine for me.
I use both, but prefer to use Mac.
I really love a Mac, but PC skills are essential.
Macbook Air, running Windows.
Kade O'Keefe Apple hardware is beautiful. But the OS is not my thing.
All developers and graphic designers use MAC, DB and BI team uses HP :D, what a world :D. Mac for graphic design, PC for the rest. Dell xps 13.3 or Lenovo x1 carbon, what a beauty...
Once upon a time designers always used Mac and it was king for graphic design, but it's not 1990 anymore
Mac for users who want simplistic, eloquent looking products, that always work. The upmark your paying on Apple products is your paying for their ubsurd marketing budget as Apple is not a computer company, they are a marketing company. PC users are for those who want real price( not including the overpriced GPUs), fix it themselves, and have full total control over there information, and infrastructure.
Apple= Hooli , PC = pied piper.
The timeless argument.... back in the day all I had was pc. All them broke within a few years maybe I could’ve been more careful and not get as many viruses whatever. Had my current Mac for over 3 years and the one before that for over 5 years and all still run perfect. And personal opinion but I LOVE the Mac UX/UI idc what anyone says it’s all BS Mac UI/UX is superior to windows and don’t try to convince me it’s not cause it won’t work. Smoother and 100% more intuitive. So what’s really more expensive when my Mac lasts 3x as long as pc?
I got lenovo t420 from 2011 thats still running strong. paid less than a Mac would have cost, wont try to argue the UI, can get the same/similar in several linux distros to be fair though, right now we'll even leave security aside because they're more or less the same anymore
PC's last just as long and are cheaper to begin with and cheaper to repair. The problem with arguments like this is, what exactly are you comparing? A PC which cheap brand components? PEBKAC? I get that Macs can be more suitable for people with no technical experience, but PC's aren't all equal. I've never had a PC "break" within a few years, and anytime there has been an issue it's cheap to fix. My 10 year old PC's still run flawlessly and I have clients that have endless issues with their Mac. As for the UI, I'm not a fan of the Mac UI, but lots of this comes down to preference and capabilities of the user. But yes, do answer your question Mac is STILL more expensive.
by a long shot its more expensive
Matt Munson "They're more or less the same" is very true in so many aspects these days. It's mostly a preference thing now, not that you are forced into either because of performance or software like it used to be. This is a good thing because now your choice isn't so restricted.
My preference is a machine thats easier to modify, and repair, and doesnt require special tools to replace components. But thats just me, I'm kind of old school like that, being able to fix my stuff is a big thing in my book.
