Mac and Windows PCs
JOiseau 3 years ago
Here's a question that's sure to stimulate a little righteous indignation. To me, the debate on which is better (Mac or Windows) is just a lot of hype. Apple gained early advocates because of its user interface, but Windows caught up on that front. Now Apple's GUI advantage is negligible, and a Windows PC is cheaper and I'm on a tight budget. Are there any compelling advantages for me to go with a Mac for my day-to-day home office computing?
