Windows or an Apple computer? It’s a discussion that invites flame wars with many people. Before we get into the differences between both of these wonderful machines, we need to first establish some definitions. Comparing Apple computers that run Mac OS X and computers running the Windows operating system, better know as Microsoft, Dell, etc.

Ever since the Apple computers, especially the MacBook Pro’s, sales have been increasing. Why is that? Is it the layout of the system, the design? The fancy perks Apple gives its users like photo booth, iMovie and easy access to iTunes? It could be for many young users.Keep in mind that Apple computers account for less than 5 percent of computers worldwide. It is the sales of the companies popular iPhones, iPods and iPads that provide a strong boost for Apple’s overall earnings.So overall, which one is better, Mac or PC?

Here are a few pointers on their differences:

Price:
To start off you have to compare the prices of both. Apple prices their computers very high, rarely under $1,000. Especially if you want to pay another $200+ on battery insurance. Many of Mac users, especially young college students say it is truly worth it though. The problem with comparing prices between Macs and PCs is that the value of a Mac or PC depends on the consumers personal needs. Depending on what you want to spend on a laptop or monitor is completely up to you.

Technical:
Believe it or not Macs and PCs have very similar internal parts (processors, RAM, hard drives, video cards) but the speed and capacity vary. Overall Macs will outperform low-end PCs because Apple typically boast more expensive and better quality parts. But many PC’s will preform just the same as Macs will for possibly a cheaper cost. Since Apple controls the hardware and software bundles, as well as model updates, every Mac operates smoothly without worry on lagging, and have stable and expected performance. With PCs, different OEMs and custom PCs might not have the suitable drivers released for every components in each OS version, which may cause lagging.

Virus Attacks:
Since Macs aren’t as popular as the hundreds of companies that run Windows, there are fewer malware written to target Macs. Most virus writers target Windows systems because it is the popular desktop choice. Although the threats of Macs getting virus’s are growing from software like Java.
