Most PCs, however, cost anywhere from $300 - $800. This is because, unlike Apple, Microsoft not only allows, but encourages other corporations to produce PCs. Microsoft’s policy enables competition between PC producers, and ultimately lower prices. This also causes stratification of the PCs resulting in low-end, average, and luxury versions.

The poem is narrated in the first-person point of view. The poem is directly related to my topic because my topic is about how the Apple industry changed the world of technology and the poem also explains how an Apple product has benefited society.

Most users are not looking for a top of the line computer, but one that will work for their limited use for a reasonable price. None the less, the commercials are just a television advertising campaign created for Apple Inc.
Battle of the Bytes: Macintosh vs. Windows 95 It used to be that the choice between a Mac and a PC was pretty clear. If you wanted to go for the more expensive, easier to use, and better graphics and sound, you went to buy a Macintosh, for the cheaper price, it was the PC. Now it is a much different show. With the release of Windows 95 and the dynamics of the hardware market have changed the equation. On the other hand, Apple has made great price reductions on many of their computers last October.
PC VS Mac Computers There are many people who prefer Macintosh or “Mac” and many people who prefer PC; there are also many differences between the two. The Mac computer is the only in the world that can run all the major operating systems, such as Windows XP, Mac OS X, and Windows Vista. A Mac is a brand name that covers many lines of personal computers that Apple Inc. develops, designs, and markets, while PC is usually a computer that runs on the Windows operating system. Mac is more stable than Windows is. The reasoning in this is because Mac produces the hardware and the software of their computers, which makes for better control over the integration of the system as a whole.
Since PC have a more compatible system hardware makes it more versatile but vulnerable to malware and viruses but Mac and PC users are safer after installing up-to-date antivirus software. Since PC is a better personal computer to run small businesses because of the power to managed the information and storing it . Mac and PC are really similar to each other, but the price differs because of the named of the brand but PC are not bound by one company. it has alternative companies creating the hardware that’s why PC's are cheap. Research conducted by David Kirkpatrick indicates that Pc has 47% of machines and still growing, but Mac's has only 11% of computer, we could argue which computer has better quality but Mac could reduce the value of their computers to acquire the same quality of a PC.
Apple faces a strong threat of rivalry in the PC industry as well. There are a large number of competitors from Lenovo to Dell to Hewlett-Packard. Relative to those firms, Apple is a small firm and only has a small market share of the industry. Nationally, the industry is slowing in growth as more than 60% of American homes already own a PC, but internationally, there is some opportunity to subdue some of the threat because growth is rapid. Thanks to the large number of suppliers and the standardization of parts, there is a low threat of suppliers to Apple.
In addition, Apple’s unmatchable success with it’s iPod mp3 player and revolutionary iTunes music store has left many companies struggling to keep up with the new wave of giving consumers the simplicity they desire in technology. The recent announcement along with the release of new Apple computers using the Intel processor, rather than the faithful IBM PowerPc processor, has allowed the company to enter into an entire new realm of needed compatibility with it’s desktop and portable computers. The Intel chip allows the new machines to run the Windows Operating System natively as well as OS X on the same drive. With the correct setup of virtualization software, these two operating systems may even run at the same time, and a couple of key commands would be able to instantly switch between operating systems. This development in technology now encourages users to switch to the very desirable Macintosh community without completely sacrificing the often thought needs of the PC.
Some distributions like Linux Mint or Ubuntu were structured so that a Microsoft Windows user could easily adapt to a Linux environment. Windows has a lot of software available to the public. Video games can be accessed on all computers that have Microsoft Windows but not all video games can be accessed on Linux. Windows is also in command of most PC’s and has a huge selection of commercial software. Windows is not as reliable as Linux because some of the user friendly things on Windows are making its security weak.
Microsoft products: • Windows • Xbox • Microsoft health • Windows phone • Internet explorer • Microsoft office • Visual Studio Microsoft is a Public Company, that Microsoft has its headquarters ____________________ USA Microsoft Strengths: the brand itself is huge. Microsoft is the leading software and hardware company in the world. It has one of the easiest to operating systems to use, and also the easiest operating systems to install. Because of the easiness in the use, people to may choose Windows over other software giants like apple or Linux. Software that runs on Xbox one and 360 are similar to the windows based software, and due to the simplicity of the software, and the programs and features in the software, people may chose Xbox over competition like Sony’s PlayStations or Nintendo Wii U.
It is a well-known fact that Microsoft is the most marketed operating system. This can be explained by the decision by Microsoft to design and sell its operating system to other computer manufacturers. This meant making it compatible with other hardware. Apple did not choose to do this, making its operating systems only compatible with its own computer hardware (Derene, 2009). In a website article called “HongKait.Com: Online Tips for Designers and Bloggers” Nina Krimly states statistics that identify Microsoft as controlling 91% of the market while Apple Mac around 5%.
