PC Vs. Mac

Nov 17, 2021

The PC Vs Mac debate is a longstanding one, and the first question you may ask if you’re looking for a new device is “Should I get a PC or a Mac?”. But before you purchase your new device, it’s important to do some research on Windows PCs and Macs.

Here are the Pros and Cons to both:

Pros of a Mac

  • The most mentioned positives of a Mac is its user-friendliness. So, if you’re not a super techie person, a Mac may be a better option for you than a Windows PC.
  • Mac’s integration between iPhones, iPads, Apple watches etc. If you’re an avid Apple user and already have Apple devices a Mac can be an excellent choice.
  • The majority of Macs come with a built-in Retina display. As such, this can make them a better option for graphic designers, artists and others who will make frequent use of the device’s visual elements.
  • Even though Macs can get viruses or malware, the number of threats is still significantly lower than Windows simply because the Windows base is much larger.

    Cons of a Mac

  • Windows is the most widely used operation system in the world, and so as you’d expect, there’s a lot less software available for Macs.
  • Macs are more expensive than PCs, however they hold their resale value far better than PCs.

    Pros of a PC

  • A big benefit of PCs is a wider range of prices than Macs due to the sheer number of PC products available. Therefore, PCs can be more accommodating to a range of different budgets.
  • Windows is also more widely used than MacOS, which makes it easier to find compatible software for a PC than a mac. Furthermore, it’s easier to navigate software modifications, software development and other internal systems needs on a PC.
  • PCs are more upgradable and configurable. Most components on a desktop PC can be switched out and made to suit your needs. When purchasing PCs, you also have a lot more options that you can configure such as processors, memory, displays, etc.

    Cons of a PC

  • PCs don’t have the same user-friendliness that Macs do. So, if you’re not already familiar with Windows, it may take some some getting used to.
  • More malware – Because Windows is more widely used than Macs, there are a lot more viruses for Windows.
