A few weeks ago I made a thread with a poll in it about PCs vs. Macs. It was just one person and I arguing about which is better so somebody locked it. But now I want to bring it back again. So which is all-around better: A PC or a Mac?
Now, I don't want to go off topic here. Obviously we're not comparing a Dell to a Mac. (A Dell stands no chance even against a Mac...) We're simply comparing the broadest category of PCs vs. Macs.
I lean towards PCs because 1. My school is made up entirely of PCs, mostly Dells, IBMs, and HPs. So if I had learned all about Macs and suddenly went to school with PCs I'd be completely lost. Oh, just go for a little discussion here... one of the teachers has five Macs in the room. And whenever you go on them they're SLOW, SLOW, SLOW and it has problems connecting to the school network and printing. They can't even take my flash drive, which is an extreme inconvenience. Okay, going back to why I favor PCs. 2. You can do more to keep them running fast; Macs simply slow down after a while and you can do nothing about this; you can't defragment, or similar, on a Mac, or Disk Cleanup, or similar, to free up files and boost performance. 3. You can't access as much on a Mac as you can a PC. Macs just shut you out on what's going on and makes assumptions as to what to do when something comes up and tries to run or install.
Again, we're comparing macs and PCs, not Dells and Macs, Lenovos and Macs, or HPs and Macs.
