The PC vs mac rivalry goes as far as we can remember where both the competitors have shown great potential in outsmarting the other. However, no matter how many the differences, no matter how much the features of mac that may be breathtaking and more ‘shiny’ than windows, one will always know that even to this date, the windows based PC still outsmarts the mac to this day in many fields. Here are 5 major things which make windows based computers still the better choice over macs.
One major thing that the mac lacks is the variety of its devices. Mac can only produce 5 types of computers, consisting of two laptops, mac mini, the all in one and the mac pro, whereas the windows world is full of varieties (we are talking about numerous of varieties here), featuring convertible laptops, gaming pc’s, tablets that run on windows, all of which are not available on mac based devices.
Moreover, one thing that will make mac a less preferable choice every time is its price. A low end mac pc can cost at least $550 + tax, whereas for the same amount one can find good windows based laptop or PC with specs much higher than the mac, from any of the major suppliers such as dell or hp.
Which device to choose between windows and mac when considering the gaming options? Obviously windows. Face it, there is no way apple can run games as good as the windows based PCs, well at least for the same amount of money for that matter. The number of games supported by windows is also huge compared to the tiny array of mac based games. By all means, one can game on mac as well, since they have now switched to intel based PCs, but the true fact is that one can buy a good gaming laptop at the cost of a mac mini, which is pretty useless for playing games.
Mac users usually brag about how their mac cannot get a virus and how they do not need to install an antivirus for their system. One thing should be perfectly clear; there is no way that any system cannot be infected. The reason why there are less amounts of viruses for mac is because mac is a unix based system, and due to its low amount of users and compartmentable structure, it is difficult to break into than windows, but that does not mean that there are no viruses for the mac based PCs. Contrary to belief, macs can get infected with malware, which would ask you for personal or credit card information when opening certain websites. Windows can be overloaded with viruses, but that’s something that windows users know which is why they install an antivirus system to protect themselves rather than ignoring the fact that they might get infected.
This one is a no brainer; windows PCs are much cheaper than the equivalent mac. You can buy a full gaming rig with high end specs for the same price as a mac mini with absolute garbage features, crazy right?
Greater users, mean that most software around support PCs more than the macs. Mac may have a fair share of their softwares which support the devices, but the windows pc has far more greater library compared to its puny one.
