Should I buy a mac rather than a pc laptop, even though a mac is more expensive?
I need a new computer. My boyfriend keeps telling me that Apple computers are far more reliable, faster and better than any PC, but they are a couple of hundred pounds more expensive. Is it worth it?
The good thing about Mac computers is that they never, ever get viruses. That's a big plus! However, if you get a Mac, just know they are a little different and you might need to pick up a book from the library about how to use them.
The bad thing about Mac computers is that you can't update upgrade their hardware on your own. And I disagree with savvydating, Mac computers are not totally immune to viruses. But then again, it's rare having a Mac infected because majority of viruses are designed for Windows based operating systems. Well, the decision here will all come down to how you will use it and how much you are willing to spend for a new computer. If what you need is a computer that is ready-to-use out of the box and you won't mind spending more, go for a Mac. If your budget is tight and you're planning to upgrade your system's hardware in the near future, go for a PC.
I've had both. I switched to a MAC about 3 years ago and it has been problem free all of that time. Programs go on seamlessly, there are never glitches --something I found all the time with various PC's My husband just switched to a MAC and has been very happy as well.
Everyone has a different opinion but I have used both extensively and much prefer a MAC. Apple technology is really worth the money.
I'm a PC guy, but my phone is an Apple iPhone. Not sure why? But being the job that I'm in, I use both and I can tell you that fixing things on a PC is by far a lot better than an Apple. In regards to compatibility, a PC is far more compatible with other business and applications out there because in the "working" world, PC's still are dominant. Servers are predominantly built on PC platforms (Linux, Apache, etc.). Viruses are indifferent. Any platform can get a virus. It's been proven that a Mac can get infected. As a person that knows computers, there's nothing that a Mac can do that my PC cannot do. Sure, there's no "iMovie" or "Garage Band," but there's a ton of alternatives out there.
What it comes down to is what you need for yourself. Buy what you want. It's your money.
