Computers are such an amazing piece of technology, wouldn’t you agree?  Some days it feels like they are our only saving grace with the amount of information they are able to hold, produce and solve. That being said, there is a contestant war going on between types of computers. It’s always been a battle between Mac and PC.

Both competitors definitely have their pros, which I’m sure are pretty obvious to most. But what are the cons? Let’s take a look!

Mac Cons:

  • They are significantly more expensive than PCs when comparing systems with identical hardware specifications. Many people say it’s worth it, but it is a big cost to swallow.
  • You are extremely limited on hardware customization, and usually have to purchase a completely new system if you need a significant hardware upgrade. This has changed a little more over the last few years and is a little more flexible. However, it is still pretty limited compared to PCs.
  • Mac OS isn’t suited for hardcore gaming. They just don’t size up in that department. They are meant for more creative inventing things such as photos and music.

With those in place, let’s now take a look at the PC cons list.

PC Cons:

  • The biggest con of them all, viruses. Admittedly, a lot of virus and malware issues occur due to poor web browsing practices, but that doesn’t discount the sheer amount of viruses and malware that target Windows. Macs are slowly starting to get some viruses, but they aren’t even close when you compare the two side by side.
  • There is a huge variety of different Windows systems on the market. This may sound like a good thing, but because there are so many you are losing the quality as well as the single benefits in each one.
  • They aren’t as user friendly as Macs. Let’s face it; they just aren’t as easy to use. You can get lost pretty easily if you don’t know what you are doing.

Although, all of these cons aren’t the worst in the world, most people are very much divided to either side. However, it does depend on what you are using the computer for. For people like us in our twenties, for the most part we have already made up our minds to what we like and what we prefer to use.  A lot of it might depend on your job as well, sometimes you don’t have a choice as what you get to use at work. But having the right computer for work or school can make a ll the difference in the world!

Either way, make sure you do your research before you decide to shell out the money for a computer. It is a big investment and you will be much happier in the end once you decide.
