So before I start this thread I just want to say that I know 99% of you prefer PCs over Macs. I don't intend this topic to become a console battle one (arguing and killing) I just want to hear your over all opinions on why you think which brand is better. I know that there are about 10 brands that make PC computers. Please feel free which brand (toshiba, alienware, etc) I prefer macs because of there build quality. I find that the macbook pro/air line is the best quality laptop out there (magazines claimed it is the laptop of 2010-2012). I know PCs are more accessible. You can access the hard drives, RAM, and graphics (some times). Most people think you can't change anything what-so-ever with macs... I changed out my hard-drive for a ssd (512GB). I got my RAM upgraded (by myself). I also find that things like Word on PCs cost 200$ 0_0 Last year I was considering a PC. I saw that with the whole package (computer+wires) the total was around 1.6 grand. I had too take school into my list as well. I looked at word and it was 200$ for the starter package 0_0 I also needed powerpoint and better movie editors than windows movie maker. I then was way way too deep into my budget. I started looking at macs. The mac I was considering was 1.7-2k A lot I know... I got a discount via work situations. I also bought keynote and pages which are better than word. And the amazing this was that both of the things combined were 35$ instead of 200$. For youtubers PCs are the way to go. Not all youtubers run on PCs, but the majority do because they can use fraps. Fraps is 40$ if I recall correctly. The decent screen recorders on mac start at 30$. I use screenflow and it goes for 100$, but it comes with an advanced movie editor. PC pros- - slightly better accesibility for a pre built computer - cheaper - More hardware for it - make your own - more brands to choose from (duh) -Usually more ports Cons- - A new model comes out every month so inding the correct model gets tricky (personal experience) - laptops are 90% of the time made of plastic - usually have bad screens (laptops) - internet explorer -_- - Toshiba and Acer laptops are crap (always) - too many flashing lights Mac pros - great build quality - cheap word processing stuff - amazing displays (15'' mcb best display in the world) - good keyboards -light - A lot more built in free software (iMovie, text edit, Quicktime, etc) - Safari - got laptop and desktop of the year for many years (imac and Macbook Pro) - has simple design and no useless features - has a WAY better charging cable (magnetic) Mac cons - expensive - can get better specs for cheaper (usually) for PCs -doesn't play all games -Can be a nusense for installing video game mods Please leave your opinion and NO hate on macs or PCs. Do not start any unwanted arguments. This is just too see the differences. Please base your info on fact..
