Mac vs Windows PC... Part 2
If you can't decide whether to get a Windows PC, or an Apple Mac... get the Mac. Here's why.
One of the most popular videos on my YouTube is about why I think a Mac is a better choice than a Windows PC. I received quite a lot of comments about that video, so I thought it would be a good idea to clarify my thoughts.
While the comments varied quite a bit, there were a quite a few people who were huge fans of Windows who wondered why I would want to run it on my Mac if I hated it so much. It's an interesting thought, but it's not accurate. I DO like Windows, and I DO run it every day, but I ALSO run a lot of Mac Apps and that's the essence of my point. I own a Mac because it is the only way I can (legally) run both Windows and Mac Apps on the same computer.
Simply stated, if you buy a Windows PC, you can only run Windows, but if you by an Apple Mac, you can run BOTH Windows and Mac, at the same time (using a Virtual PC such as Parallels, or VMWare). Windows runs flawlessly on a Mac, so I truly do get the best of both worlds.
The other point people keep bringing up is the price. For some reason a lot of people feel that a Mac is much more expensive than a PC, but if you compare the price of a typical Windows PC to a Mac with similar options, you'll see they're roughly the same price, and the Mac is usually built with higher build quality.
For example, a new Dell All-In-One costs just about the same price as an iMac with the same options, yet you can't deny that the Apple has the edge, not just in terms of the slicker aluminum and glass exterior, but also the inner components. You can easily configure an iMac with a solid state drive and an i7 CPU, but if you buy a Dell, you're stuck with an antiquated 5400 RPM drive.
