LOL there are a HUGE amount of differences, but i probably dont want to because i love my mac and it might lead to a flame war Evil or Very Mad


The most broad things i can say are:

Macs have the potential to bring out the creativity in people
Macs are VERY easy to use
Macs have an unbreakable code, which means NO viruses, Bugs, or hacks Smile

Really? I didnt know that about the viruses and all. They are defenitley for creativity! lol I heard some one say as a joke MAC stands for Mother of All Computer LOL

Anyways, Another thing I have to say about the mac is that all the hardware and software go hand in hand. Like if you plug in a digital camera or printer it will automatically pick it up and begin cooperating with it.

Whereas on windows the computer will crash, reboot and then itll work lol (exxag.)

Just my opinion. Smile Even though I use PC

I guess there used to be big differences. Now I think that gab is narrowing quite a bit, with emulation softwares and also dual booting. So you can now have the best of both worlds. I, myself, have always been a big gamer. PC has always won the gaming wars, so I have always prefered PC.

Yes, PC is definitely better for gaming ill give you that, but even with dual booting there are alot of problems between them, it is better to get a pure mac and a pure PC then getting a dual boot.... i still havnt been able to run a huge amount of windows games on my mac from dual booting Sad

I agree PC is way better for gaming but I think you can still get games as good as PC on a imac? or a powerful machine?. But I would say macs are the best when it comes to compatibility, designing and overall look Wink

Mac's have really good specs, and are very reliable. Hardware and software goes hand in hand Smile
Plus, if there's a game only on PC just run BootCamp lol!

Ok well ima go all computer nerd on you guys n freak you out XD.

Starting with Mac:
Firs of all the most common known thing to all Mac and PC user is that Mac get ZERO VIRUSES!!! This is half true. On macs its very hard to get a virus but you can get one. To get a virus on a mac you literally have to go looking for one like downloading something off of a weird website like pirate bay or something like that. then yea the virus on your computer but it cant do anything until it has your password for your mac. So basically it is almost a no virus computer but then again if your not paying attention you will get one. Then to get RID of a virus on a mac, its not like windows where your like "Oh i will just run a scan!" no, there is no 'Scan=" for macs, i tried to take a virus off a mac, i had to st there and use macs Command prompt and everything, you have to TELL IT what to do, not like on windows when you like just scan and delete infected files. ow outa that, onto games. Pretty much the only good well known game for macs is World of war craft, and that...its ok, but not great. The speed of macs is great, it barley freezes up and never crashes. It because of all the coding that the mac people do. Just makes it really really fast its great! Price. Well im going to use the expression, you get what you pay for. I have yet to find a mac for under $1K hats because macs are just that good. So there is no way you sell it under that.

Onto PC's: Starting again with viruses. Yes it is well known that getting one on a PC is very very easy. But you can prevent it by doing these steps. Getting a good virus program not a free version. Dont download weird things. and PAY THE F*** ATTENTION!!! But you do have the ease of just saying oh i think i have a virus lets run a scan and that will delete it all. The your done. But sometimes your not. Sometimes its a trojan and you need to do more steps that i will not explain...too long. Ok down to speed, Pc's range from really slow to really fast. You could have an integrated graphics card with 512mb of RAM and an Intel Pentium processor and your going to crying cause its sooooo slow!!!!! but then again you could have 2 intel i7's which means you have 7 Processors to spread all your tasks out and that means you have 14 spots to have, games, music, firefox, and all that stuff running and still no lag!!! but i must add the i7 costs you $1K its a lot. But the i7 with windows 64-bit would be like ownage server fast. and PC's price, they can range form $220 which is gonna be a really slow PC to $5K which will be a high end fast PC.

Hope you enjoyed nerd talk!
