Differences between Mac and Pc
Mac and PC are very different just like Ford and Jugar are. They both produce products with the same intention, but which work differently and have different capabilitys. To start with most Mac programs are not compatible with Windows, since they were designed for macs. However a lot of Windows programs work on Mac, such as Adobe, Microsoft office, skype and so on. The reason for this is that Mac use have a different operating system to the PC which has Windows.
Other differences are that some shortcuts are not the same, the buttons are a bit different. If you are used to using a PC keyboard you will often at first get the shortcuts mixed up. But after a bit of time and pratice it will come naturaly. And anyhow they are basically the same. The buttons or often only moved slightly to the side.
How to choose ?
Mac are known to be quite expensive. It is like everything which is posh, you pay for the logo, for the name. You can for example get the equivalent of a good mac at Dell but quite cheaper. It all depends on your needs really. Macs are good for visual and sound programs, so if you are going to work in the area of design or music mac is often the best choice. Pc are good for video games, well if you buy the correct equipement such as good graphic card and so on. Mac are not often used for games, there for only a small range of videos games are availble.
And if you are not really interested in computers and all you need is something for work or to put on a few photos, go on the web you should get a PC, it will be cheaper than the equivalent mac.
