Apple Mac or Windows PC: For a long time, there has been a confusing discussion in the tech world about “Windows or Mac”. There is no end to this debate. Both platforms have advantages and disadvantages. Windows PCs can be purchased at relatively low prices. On the other hand, the lovely iMac, MacBook, and their Retina Monitor are adorable, there is no way to deny it. But after all, when it comes to pricing and customization, Mac isn’t for everyone. Let’s look at the reasons for buying a Windows PC or Mac.
Even if you buy the cheapest Apple computer Mac mini, you will have to spend at least $500. You only get the CPU. Mouse, keyboard, the monitor should be purchased separately. On the other hand, at a lower price, you can build a Windows PC with a better configuration. Even at this price, you can buy some middle configuration notebook PCs. But the MacBook Air, Apple’s cheapest laptop, will take $1000 out of your pocket.
Officially Mac operating system computers are only made by Apple, and they usually do not release more than two or three models a year. Another thing is that the design of all of Apple’s computers is almost. But every year Apple upgrades its performance. So your choice is becoming very limited. No matter what the budget, you can’t go beyond some of Apple’s limited models when buying a Mac.
On the other hand, the Windows PC will give you full freedom. Numerous organizations around the world are making Windows PCs in cooperation with Microsoft. Even if the manufacturer does not have Windows installed on your PC, you can buy the desired PC and install Windows. Every year numerous models of Windows PCs are coming out.
MacBook laptops or Mac desktops are extremely poor in terms of customization. You can’t do any customization beyond RAM and storage. Windows PCs, on the other hand, are highly customizable.
Windows OS runs on Intel, AMD’s processor and even the Qualcomm chipset on the ARM platform. This allows you to customize your PC the way you want.
If you have ever been exposed to technology, you must have noticed that many people say the term “Apple ecosystem”. This means that Apple’s various devices such as the iPhone, iPod, Watch, Mac, TV all offer some common cross-device features, making your user experience easier and more beautiful. So using a Mac allows you to take maximum advantage of Apple’s other devices that are not possible in Windows. Microsoft also has an ecosystem. But Apple’s ecosystem is much more powerful than that.
Professional level built-in software
For macOS Apple iMovie, garage band, and some of the professional level software like image capture is free. So for video editing or music composites, you can work without buying separate professional software. Although some of these free software is built-in/downloadable on Windows, their functionality is relatively basic.
Since Windows PC comes from different manufacturers, PCs have different software installed by those companies. Additional software that comes in this way is called bloatware. Most of them are not very useful to users. Moreover, even if you install Fresh Windows, Microsoft Automatic offers some promotional games and apps. These are very annoying even when uninstalled. Mac, on the other hand, does not have this problem.
OS upgrade fee
If you buy a Mac, you will have MacOS installed and you will be able to install any updates that come in the future for free. On the other hand, if your manufacturer does not sell you a Windows Installed PC, you will need to buy Windows OS again at a cost. Moreover, if you are using Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 and have no offers, you need to upgrade to Windows 8.
At least, in this case, there’s no arguing that Windows is best for gaming. Custom-built all-powerful Windows machines allow you to enjoy the ultimate in gaming. Also, Mac hardware being stronger day by day, but you won’t be able to play good games. Because most video games are developed for the Windows platform. Apple Macs are not optimized for gaming.
Apple eliminates many ports when it comes to compact designs for Mac PCs, especially Macbooks. As a result, you will not be able to connect regular HDMI, VGA or SD card directly to your Mac. That’s why you have to use different adapters. On the other hand, there are many types of ports built into the Windows PC. Although, this is not a credit to Windows itself!
The use of new technology
Apple comes up with a new specification upgrade at certain times of the year on Mac PCs. So when it comes to new hardware technology you have to wait till Apple’s new PC is announced. But there are many manufacturers of Windows PCs, the competition in the market is high. As a result, you can get the desired technology upgrade from any manufacturer quickly.
There is some software on Mac that is only available for Mac. However, this number is not too much. Almost all the apps are available on the Windows platform. But there are some apps and games that are only available on the Windows platform. On Windows, you can install software from outside the store or from the store. Most major software usually comes with the standalone offline installer. However, there is some software on the Mac that can only be installed from the App Store. External installer of those cannot be found. Such as screenshots/screen recorder tool Monosnaps.
Although Mac is a good OS, the customization options are very limited to make it easy to use. However, in terms of simplicity, many users put forward the Mac operating system. Because they like Simple and Clean OS. But as Windows OS is more customizable, power users can take advantage of this.
The cost of repair
Windows PC’s service center is easily available and fixing costs is relatively low cost. On the other hand, Mac’s component and service center are hard to find. And also the cost is much higher.
Many people think Mac is safer than Windows. But the thing is that less malware is created for MacOS as the user is less. On the other hand, Windows users are high, and that’s why malware is created to target Windows users. Operating systems have some issues when it comes to security. Both of them have antivirus software. Security is also dependent on user awareness. If you are not careful about using the third-party software, you may become a victim of a cyber attack.
Which one would be better to choice? Apple Mac or Windows PC?
Although Apple releases a limited number of Macs every year, the best part is that you don’t have to worry about making decisions. Apple product quality is also good. So you have to buy Apple’s desktop or laptop according to your budget. On the other hand, numerous companies create windows pc. That’s why it’s hard to find the “Value for Money” model from so many models. Again, not all companies have the same quality. In this case, you also have to rely on third-party reviews and luck. Of course, nowadays, Mac also facing many issues. So in both cases, ‘fate’ is a big deal.
So what you things after reading this post? Which one would be better to buy? Mac or Windows PC? If you do not intend to play games, you can buy a Mac if you have a good budget. But if you don’t have a good budget, and whatever your purpose is, you can buy a Windows PC to get the performance you want. It all depends on your needs, preferences, and budget. Now the decision is yours!
