Windows vs Mac

WINDOWS                                               VS                                                MAC

STABILITY                           LOSE                                                               WIN

Macs are more stable because it separates most programs from each other, as well as the operating system. Whereas, Windows programs and operating systems are all connected, which makes it less stable.

SECURITY                            LOSE                                                                WIN

Mac wins this category because it is yet to be threatened by a major virus or security breach. Windows is constantly riddled with viruses and security breaches.

RELIABILITY                      LOSE                                                                WIN

On a Mac, you can move a program file anywhere within the hard drive, and it won’t crash. Mac will also provide you with a shortcut icon. In Windows, if you move a program file anywhere, it is possible that you will have to reinstall the program. Sometimes, Windows just quits working altogether.

MULTIMEDIA                    LOSE                                                                WIN

Mac wins this category because it offers an unprecedented range of applications and hardware for audio, video and photo editing. Even though Windows are more multimedia equipped than ever before, they still cannot compare to Macs.

COST                                       WIN                                                                 LOSE

The range of Windows are much cheaper than Macs.

SELECTION                          WIN                                                                 LOSE

Mac only offers 10-15 models, whereas there is an unending range of Windows computers.

COMPATIBILITY               LOSE                                                                  WIN

Mac can run Windows, but Windows can’t run Mac.

GAMING                                WIN                                                                 LOSE

The world’s most popular games are available on Windows, and only some are available on Mac.

TV CONNECTIVITY           WIN                                                                  LOSE

Most Windows computers are designed to directly connect to certain TVs, but a Mac can only connect to a TV if you have Apple TV, which costs an extra $100.

POPULARITY                      WIN                                                                  LOSE

95% of schools and businesses run Windows, only 5% run Mac. But remember that you can change this statistic.

SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY   WIN                                                      LOSE

Software is usually designed to run on Windows, but Mac software is usually a different version, which means you have to learn the process all over again.

TYPOGRAPHY                   LOSE                                                                   WIN

Type-styles are rendered on a Mac better.

3D RENDERING               WIN                                                                     LOSE
Windows’ open architecture and PCI allows a wide, non-saturated video subsystem. Mac only uses PCI, which makes the 3D rendering severely bottle-necked.

COLOUR MATCHING     LOSE                                                                   WIN

Macs are the only OS that supports ColourSync™ , which enables you to colour match extremely well. Windows cannot match this standard.

SPEED TEST                       LOSE                                                                   WIN

Startup                                  1 Min 13 Sec                    ->                              29 Sec

Shut Down                          44 Sec                                ->                               4 Sec

Internet Browser               6 Sec                                   ->                               3 Sec

Adobe Photoshop             6 Sec                                   ->                               4 Sec

CD Rip                                 3 Min 35 Sec                     =                              3 Min 35 Sec

Mac clearly wins the section.

In conclusion, Mac wins a total of eight categories, and Windows only seven. So, if you are looking for something cheap with an okay OS, get a Windows, but if you can afford it, DEFINITELY “Get a Mac”(I am writing this post on a Mac). Because, if after a while you decide, ‘This OS is pathetic’ (which I don’t think you will), if you have had a Windows before, yes I know, you ACTUALLY HAD A WINDOWS (it’s not that embarrassing) you can just run Boot Camp Assistant, and you insert your Windows installation disc, and voila! You are running Windows on a Mac. In my opinion, yes, I am restating the quote but, “Get a Mac”.
