Mac Vs Pc Laptop

According to CNET in 2005, laptops make up about 55 percent of the computers sold in United States. Deciding which brand of computer to purchase is tough enough, but deciding which major operating system to buy is just as daunting.

Windows Laptop


The Mac operating system and the Windows operating system are very different. A Windows-based laptop needs virus protection since it is more prone to viruses. A Mac laptop requires very little maintenance. Windows laptops require regular maintenance such as defragging.



Mac notebooks, also known as Macbooks, come in different configurations. The higher the configuration, the more it will cost. The base model has a 13-inch screen, 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1066MHz frontside bus and 2 GBs of memory.

Windows-based laptops come in many brands such as Dell, Gateway, Toshiba and Hewlett Packard. These also have base models. The more "bells and whistles," the higher the price.


While a Mac costs more initially, if it will be used often, it may well be worth the price since a Mac laptop tends to last longer than a Windows laptop.


Some people prefer Macs and some PCs. Depending who is asked, there will be different opinions. It comes down to personal preference and what your budget allows.
