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”.
