Mac vs. PC: The Verdict

Contrary to what the rabid “fanboys” and “fangirls” of each would like you to think, the differences between Macs and PCs aren’t incredibly striking — sort of like Coke and Pepsi!

If you need more than the basics and prefer sleeker styling and Apple’s interface and design capabilities, get yourself a Mac.

Nowadays, computers are quite powerful for the price — all you need to do is figure out what your computing priorities are and pick the machine that best suits your need and budget.
