I long ago stopped actively seeking out Mac vs PC discussions (partly because Macs are now PCs -- so the argument is more about Mac OS X vs Windows vs Linux than a proprietary Mac architecture vs an x86 PC architecture), but I still find it confounding that after all these years, people still don't know the basics of the upsides of Macs and OS X...
So here's my answer. Note, despite what I said above about the argument really being between operating systems these days, I've looked at Macs as a hardware and software combination in this article, pitted against regular PCs running Windows. ---APC Web Editor Dan Warne
The full article is here. Some of my favorites are:
- Apple seems largely to be lameness free.
- Apple doesn’t load the system up with crap.
- More useful apps out of the box.
- Still no need for additional security software.
Plus one of my own - the power and stability of Unix married with the most well-designed personal computer user interface experience on the planet (so far).
