No doubt, that there is a major market of the windows based PCs, much greater in number than the mac based market, in terms of support, variety and gaming. However, there are a few reasons why mac may well be a better choice than the windows based PCs. After all, the market they have created does not only consist of all money wasting people (well, most of them are those people but anyways), there are still a number of rational reasons why a person might choose mac over a windows based PC.
Here are a few of those valid reasons (somewhat)
Face it, you are never happier when you get a windows based pc than when you get a mac. Yes, the mac is a far more expensive option than the PC, but you are missing the bigger picture here. One major feature that mac boasts is its simplicity in usage, as well as their software reliability, since they tend to be more stable than the windows based computers, which is why over the past decade they have had a much higher customer satisfaction rating than the windows pc.
Built In Softwares
One difference between windows and mac is that windows does not come with any useful software when it is first installed on a PC. What it does come with is a bunch of unwanted software on new laptops and PC which are never used but only take space and are very annoying sometimes. Now when we talk about mac, we see that it already has iLife suite pre-installed which is pretty useful for editing images and videos when you need to, and also does not bring in any unwanted software which has nothing to do with the user.
Although when we talk about PC vs mac, there are a lot of things that may be useful in windows and missing from the mac, one thing still shines in the mac category, the amount of security. The market is so small compared to windows based PCs, that hackers tend to not go for attacking a unix based mac, probably because it is just too much of a work, compared to the windows pc which has a much lower level of security and can be easily broken into. Some study even suggests that a mac with 0 security would still be in lesser threat than a fully protected windows PC.
Software and Hardware
Well, mac may have a much greater price tag compared to most windows PCs, but what people do not realize is that apple only uses the top drawer components, which is why they tend to be more reliable than the PCs. Even the software is optimized to run the PC at its full potential, which lacks in the windows category.
The trackpad on mac has a much greater functionality than the windows PC. The amount of gestures and multi touch features make the mac’s trackpad much more superior than that of a windows based laptop or tablet.
