Apple can make a gorgeous form factor, but I've personally always valued practicality more.

It was even worse for the users that insisted on using iWork.

If you do anything in the way of presentations, use a PC. The office I worked at was internationally famous for the presentations we did. Many of you have probably seen one or more. They ALL had to be shown on a Mac because the formatting got completely effed when displayed on a PC. The software simply isn't compatible. (I now know exactly how difficult it is to get a Macbook into Pakistan without it being confiscated)


PDF's are your friend.

PDFs are only your friend in situations where a PDF is an acceptable format for the final product. When you are collaborating with multiple partners on a document, expecting that all of them will have PDF authoring software and are proficient in it is a bit of a stretch.

PDFs are also a terrible presentation media. Our presentations were flashy, had custom transitions, vector graphics, etc. There is only so much you can do with a PDF.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I am currently working off of a chromebook, which is fine for casual internet browsing but I really need something that does it all. I have never used a Mac before but I have an ipad and iphone so I do know that much about Apple products. I am in the creative industry and I know Apples can do some pretty neat things but I just don't know. So anyway, I would love to hear some opinions about PC vs Mac.Smile

Ima gonna skip all these post and answer to the OP...

You see, a long, long time ago in a galaxy exactly where you are now there was Apple and there was a PC and they were different things. PCs used an x86 IBM technology for their CPU (central processing unit), while Apple used PPC (Performance Optimization With Enhanced RISC – Performance Computing) architecture. There was a difference there and PPC was better for professional use, like graphics and video applications. Back then it a simple choice, if you wanted something for everyday use and games, you'd get a PC. IF you were all about graphic design and/or video editing, you'd get a Mac. Don't get this the wrong way, a good PC could do everything Mac could, it's just that Mac was a bit better in some specific areas, so if you needed a maximum there, it was the obvious choice. This meant you lost the ability to play 90% of the games.

Then, in the year 2006 Apple decided to switch to x86 Intel processors and that was the end of the difference between a Mac and a PC. Apple did keep good looks and high quality parts and all that, but if you want, you can always build a better PC (better looking, same or higher specifications) for less money. There is also a question of operating system, which comes with Apple, the MacOS. If you do not want Windows OS, you do have a huge selection of Linux distributions for your PC, so you have an alternative in a PC world. Actually, you have a much bigger choice than you get with a Mac, not only for your OS, but for all the applications as well. Since Mac is now basically an Intel based PC, you can use Windows on a Mac and MacOS on a PC, so this does not have to affect your decision in any way.

Is there really a choice here? Is it true that only hipsters buy Macs today? Stay tunned for the next episode of ...

Cool

P.S.

Oh, and did I forget to mention the games? Not many games are made for Mac...

My brother installed windows on his macbook. It starts incredibly slow... Which is weird because it is actually a pretty decent machine. It almost seems like its purposely refusing to run windows efficiently.

RE: Mac or PC? yes I am starting this classical debate
Windows runs decent on powerful macs, but its hard to trust the driver support when its such a small market, and no one earning money to have a reason to fix any driver glitches that arise.
I recommend macs for family members who don't really need a computer, but find a tablet awkward to use.

You mean like atheists pretending to be theists?

One of these black cylinders is a $79 trashcan. The other is an almost-$4000 Apple Mac Pro. Choose wisely.
