I know I'm new here, but I'm a seasoned veteran to other messageboards. Sorry, I just get kind real tired of seeing the same topic over and over, especially when it's like "who's better." You know what I mean? It's like, who really cares who's better? I know people that have iBooks that rave about them, and I know people with Alienwares that say they are the coolest thing since sliced bread. Everyone knows they both have their strengths and weaknesses. I mean, it's like, how about I start a thread comparing a Mercedes SL500, and a Jaguar XK8? They're both awesome cars, and both get the job done.
I dunno, it's just like what's the point, you know?

You're right it hasn't been discussed at length in a while. I ran a search and found this thread:
http://www.techist.com/showthread.ph...ghlight=Mac+PC
The moderators (and members) at the other boards that I belong to encourage people to search previous threads to see if the topic has already been covered. It's just more as a courtesy for everyone to help keep the list of topics fresh. It's all good tho.

Shoot me for saying this, but whats the difference between a Macintosh and a PC?? Aren't they both computers?? One is a brand and the other is a general term for a computer, to which a Mac is.....right??

Default the difference

ok, im no pro, but heres what i THiNK

Macs and PC's both have great graphics, but a mac CPU is OPTOMIZED for graphics(or so i hear) I also heard from a tecaher that a 8ooMhZ mac is equivalent to a 1GhZ PC.. dont know if its true? Mac OSX is Fancy if u like that crap, but there IS LESS SOFTWARE FOR MACS. People say there are NO games for macs, not true, just not as much. PC opposers say that they are unstable and krap, but XP seems to work fine.(finaly a OS that works, from MS) lol... But then again it IS MS so u have 2 restart every other time jk lol anways that was off suject, Macs are based on UNIX, probly much more stable thana PC, if ur a PC user and u say macs suck and uve never tried one, think again. If ur a mac user and dont look at PC's cuz their too "ugly" think again also.

Pc's have more compatible hardware, are easier to fix, and HAVE MORE SOFTWARE However they are less stable in general, less reliable, and secure.(ms security is a joke)lol

Macs have "less compatible hardware" if u know what i mean, are more stable, harder to hack, and does not have AS MUCH software as a PC does.

IF you want a truly awesome computer and OS get a Mac and RUN LINUX ON IT! then u can also have WINE and run lots of win apps
go2 go
