However, proper research can easily clarify these fictions. Someone looking to buy a new computer has a right to know the truths behind both systems. Though the Macintosh computer and the personal computer have been competing for years, a PC is a much wiser choice for the average consumer. The PC and the Mac have many factors that can be compared and contrasted. Walking through the computer store, a shopper can see the two side-by-side and begin to make conclusions.
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. The Windows operating system can run on hundreds of different types of computers, which can cause problems with stability with all the variations in the configurations in hardware. Design is a huge factor that distinguishes Mac & PCs. For almost three decades, Apple CEO Steve Jobs would always focus on the outward appearance of his products with loads of enthusiasm, unlike his competitors. These designs are what gave Mac products a step above the rest and what make people enjoy them today.
Another consequence of Apple... ... middle of paper ... ...ays it to Microsoft. This allows Microsoft to build on what they know, and apply security coding to their Personal Computers based on current and foreseeable future threats. Like Apple’s approach, this only works for a short period of time before the user must buy expensive software to detect and eliminate any potential threat to their computer. A Personal Computer is a more intelligent purchase than a Macintosh because Microsoft has mastered the art of providing a wide variety of affordable computers and is competitive with Apple in providing security to their users. Microsoft allows PCs to be configured by many different manufactures so that for each individual there is a PC that fits their unique preferences.
"Hello I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" (Wikipedia). Many people who watch television or online videos might come across the "Get a Mac" advertisement campaign launched by Apple Inc. personifying the more youthful Justin Long as the cool, hip Mac system and the older, more seasoned John Hodgman as the PC. The "Get a Mac" commercial series depicts the efficiency and user friendliness of Mac while comparing it to the problematic PC. Though the commercial series might seem convincing in favor of the Mac products, the commercial would obviously hide the flaws of the Macs. The actually masks the fact that PC comes out on top at the end of the day with great efficiency, the ability to do a diverse range of work, and its user-friendliness.
Microsoft and Apple are the two leading corporations in the rapidly growing electronic business. Apple Inc. was incorporated January 3, 1977, ('Apple Investor Relations Investor FAQ') one year after Microsoft was funded. In August 1981, Microsoft launched its first version of Windows version 1.0 sparking the competition between Microsoft and Apple. ('Introduction to Microsoft Windows') Microsoft is better than Apple because, people are more familiar with Microsoft Windows rather than Mac OS (Operating System) X. It is easier and cheaper to upgrade Microsoft's software and hardware rather than the Mac PC, and Microsoft's corporation also has much more to offer to the public than Apple Inc.
On the other hand, Apple has made great price reductions on many of their computers last October. You can now buy a reasonably equipped Power Macintosh at about the same price as a PC that has about the same things. This makes the competition much harder. Windows 3.x have been great improvements over the earlier versions of Windows, and of course over DOS, but it still didn't compete against the ease of use on a Mac. The Windows 95 interface is much better than Windows 3.x.
Linux-based operating system has hundred bespoke known as 'distros'. This will cause the user difficult to choose among them, in contrast, the versions of Window are easier to choose like just Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. Windows has a big advantage over Linux that is the software stakes, install Windows is also much simpler. When users purchase the Microsoft Windows or the MAC computers, the operating system are already installed on their new computers. Microsoft Window’s simple, familiar, and guaranteed to be compatible with virtually all software; for busy companies, that could well be more valuable in the long run.
On the other end, a typical life expectancy of a PC is 3 years. PC’s often need replacement or repair thus making them more expensive to own and to maintain. Conclusion Based on the arguments introduced in this paper a MAC will generate a better performance connectivity and financial Return On Investment (ROI) than the PC. They are a superior computer for all corporate and home users today and into the future.

Windows based systems are the standard in our community, and that is not due to change any time soon. Windows based computers are cheaper, and more easily upgradeable than Macintosh systems. The reason for this being that Apple has exclusive rights to the hardware made specifically for their computers. Windows based system hardware is produced by literally thousands of manufacturers. This, of course, means competition, which in turn lowers prices.
A bit more memory would be nice too.¡¨ Therefore, some small businesses would like to upgrade Windows 2000 but they are bound by their hardware. Actually, we can say that Microsoft has done a good job of ensuring that most business applications will work with Windows 2000. But before you take the plunge, be sure all the programs you depend on are compatible with it. Major applications such as accounting, word processing and database software probably will be OK, but some specialized programs, games and multimedia applications may not be compatible.
