Well this debate has been going on for a while, and the question is who is the best? tell me what you think but so you don’t have to run out and do a bunch of research I did some for you baiscly on lap tops but I have some information on a base computer too enjoy!
MAC: Comes with a state of the art graphics for the gamers(the name of the chip is called the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M). One-hundred and sixty GB’s of storage, comes standard with a 2GB RAM. Comes with a powerful 2.13GHz intel Core 2 Duo, and provides a fast 1066MHz and 3MB of shared L2 cache so you are set to get the job done in a few seconds! With a 802.11 wireless capabilities you will not be having any WI-FI problems anytime soon. That's all of the “advanced” software built in to the MAC now for the hardware: 2 USB ports, Audio Jacks(in and out), Mini-DVI port to extend your Mac Book desktop by connecting an external display, Mag safe power adapter( which is very useful its just a magnetic connection rather than a physical one so if you trip over your cable it wont make your Mac Book flying across the room but just slipping cleanly off the adapter not damaging the cable or the system), a Gigabit Ethernet port, and a convenient Kingston Lock Slot. The Mac Book also comes with a built in iSight camera, you can use this for iChat and video sharing is a piece of cake. And the Disk Drive which is standard on every laptop and base computer.
The features you get with a standard Mac are important too and there are a lot of them, such as the Mac has iTunes built in to the laptop, there is more software for people who have a lot of features like the face recognition program, every new Mac has a iSight camera so you can chat with people instantly, a state of the art GPS system is also built in to the system, and a lot more features like this(yes there are so many that this post would take up a lot more space to write about them).
Lets not forget the price of the system which right now in best buy is $1,000 dollars for a standard one and a pro costs $1,199.99 and then the Aluminum Pro costs $1,699.99(the color makes the difference). The new Mac Book Air costs about $1,800 and the small but efficient Mac mini costs $600.
Now the PC: There are many PC’s in this world, a lot of companies base there whole product industry on Microsoft’s operating system, DELL, Gateway, and a lot, lot more! A PC has about the same features as a Mac it just depends on which company you are buying the PC from. HP is a good company to buy a PC from they have a lot more features built in to the system, PC’s range from about 200$ and up. Every PC has a windows Vista operating system (unless you still have the older version, Not saying that's bad XP has more features than Vista!), windows Vista has not gotten really good results because there were a lot of problems with it such as it asks too man questions and so on and so forth. OK back to the subject a standard PC laptop doesn't have anything too fancy, two USB ports a disk drive, an up to date video card, efficient RAM, 14-19 inches in screen size, and a wireless card.
Lets not forget that the majority of laptop owners in the United States have PC’s (like me) and this is because the PC’s come in a cheaper price and they get the job done. Especially in this recession PC sales have been up and Mac sales are down.
Tell me what you think about my research and which system you would prefer[Mac or PC?].
