Why Choose A Mac As Your Next Computer?
The other day I asked Twitter this question, “If you could had to choose between a Dell XPS 730/Custom built PC or a Mac Pro – which would you choose and why?” – I had a feeling the replies would pour in and they did. Thanks to everyone who replied.
While I do not necessarily agree with all of the reasons as to why, I think we are starting to see a serious trend here. That trend being people migrating over to Apple computers. Why exactly are we seeing this trend? I mean, is it the hardware that’s better or is it the software that’s better or both?
Well, let’s take look at the hardware – the hardware in today’s Mac’s is superior, if not equal to that in a PC (Windows machine). Not only that, but it just seems to work right out of the box, why is that? Well, Apple has strict control over what hardware is used with OSX so they can easily manage drivers. Whereas, on the Windows side – Microsoft has their work cut out for them. Microsoft has to make sure their software (Windows) runs on almost any hardware on the market and for that, I give Microsoft some props. I am firm believer that it is not Microsoft’s job to make drivers for a product to work with their operating system – that’s the manufactures job.
On the software side of things, OSX trumps Windows in all aspects, period. OSX provides excellent software right out of the box, meanwhile, Windows not so much. I think that is a key feature of an operating system (the tools and software provided with it), after all, it is supposedly a system in which you can operate your computer on a daily basis.
This is why I am choosing a Mac Pro as my next computer. What will your next computer be? Leave a comment!
