Why Apple Is Better Than Microsoft

Updated on April 12, 2018

Apple vs. Microsoft

Have you ever debated which is better - Apple or Microsoft? Well. the fact is, most people would say that Apple products are better than Microsoft. Phil Schiller sure does: “There are people who want us to innovate faster and when we do there’s people who say, ‘Whoa, whoa, you’re going too fast.’ That’s just a balance in the world.” I believe consumers should buy Apple products because of their overall performance, superior quality, and better security.

One reason Apple is better than Microsoft is because Apple designs all of their products for optimal performance, from their chips to their operating systems. The iMac’s tech specs (with the best possible configuration) are a 4.2GHz quad-core 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, 64GB RAM, 2TB SSD or 3TB Fusion Drive, Radeon Pro 580 Graphics with 8GB video memory, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports, and a Retina 5K 5120 by 2880 P3 display. iMac also has faster than ever graphics rendering needed in apps like Final Cut Pro X and in some games too. It also comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which can deliver content up to 40GB/s. Also, the iMac comes with a Retina 5K display that is, 43% brighter than previous model. Here’s the best part - the iMac starts at only $1299. In this category, Apple wins!

From the moment you pick up an Apple product, its high quality build is apparent. Apple carefully selects components for use in its products to optimize performance. Take for instance the iMac Pro, which has an option between the AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 or Vega 56 (the Vega 64 is better) and an Intel Xeon W configurable with an 8, 10, 14, or 18 core processor. With the 18-core processor, each core clocks at 2.3GHz, but listen, with Turbo Boost, each core can clock at 4.3GHz! You can also configure your iMac Pro with up to 128GB of RAM, Apple wins!

The next and final reason Apple is better than Microsoft: security. Everyone should care about security because a vulnerable computer can be send out your personal information or credit card # or anything else. Nowadays, another worry is that an insecure computer can allow viruses and malware like CoinHive to sneak onto your system. As Apple says: “Apple products are designed to do amazing things. And designed to protect your privacy.” Also, Appinstructor states that “Apple products have plenty of security applications and tools available to them so that the rare virus (most criminals like to go after Windows users) doesn’t get through. These security applications will do things such as scan your device for any problems and remove threats already on it. Others will hide your identity so that people can’t track you online and allow you to use dangerous public networks without any difficulty. The basic system in any Apple product will have safeguards in it as well.” Apple wins again!

I believe consumers should buy Apple products because of their great performance, superior build quality and strong security. So, let me ask you a question after all of that - “Would you choose Apple or Microsoft?” Buyers appear to be voting for Apple as the company continues to gain market share.
