Full List, With Details, Highly Suggest You Read As It Goes Into More Detail About The Points: http://www.pcauthority.com.au/Feature/92605,32-reasons-why-pcs-are-better-than-macs.aspx 1 - Service packs don’t cost $199 (only one I'll do with full description, visit link for others) Since Mac OS X was launched in 2001, there have been four “new versions” of the operating system – Puma, Jaguar, Panther and Tiger – with a fifth, Leopard, due imminently. That’s almost one a year, each costing a princely $199 – racking up a total bill of close to $1000 for anyone who’s bought every version. And they say Windows is expensive. Apple has effectively introduced the first subscription operating system, and has somehow gotten away with it. If Microsoft had done likewise, Bill Gates would have been before the anti-competition courts quicker than you could say, “isn’t $199 a bit steep for a service pack?”. The Mac zealots claim that each new cat really is a new operating system, but that argument doesn’t bear scrutiny. Take Panther (Mac OS X 10.3): the Apple press release hails “more than 150 breakthrough new features”, the pick of which are a new “Finder”, a way to see all your open windows at once, and bundled video-messaging software. God knows how insignificant the other 147 were. 2 - No price premium for flashy design 3 - Thousands of decent games 4 - Two mouse buttons 5 - Broadband just works 6 - Custom-made systems 7 - Macs are months behind 8 - Life beyond 1st January 9 - Superior search facilities 10 - Safety in numbers 11 - Sensible support costs 12 - Microsoft’s on your team 13 - Black’s still the new black 14 - The CD-ROM has an eject button 15 - No confusing version numbers 16 - What the hell was that? "For, in Apple’s infinite wisdom, it decided that a simple PC-like “beep” from the hardware to indicate the successful start of the boot process wasn’t annoying enough. Instead, it substituted the most appalling metallic clanging noise you’ve ever heard." 17 - Cheap OEM versions 18 - Far better media capability 19 - IT support expertise 20 - Not so insecure 21 - Copious amount of freeware 22 - What is it with Steve Jobs? "Has there ever been such a self-serving, egotistical, irritating man as Apple CEO, Steve Jobs? Yes, he brilliantly rescued the company from the doldrums in the late-1990s, but boy, he doesn’t half bang on about it." 23 - The menu is where? "For an interface that’s supposed to be intuitive, design-led and superior to Windows, Mac OS has some pretty odd quirks. One of the most annoying is that the menu bar for any given application isn’t actually attached to the app itself: it sits at the top of the screen in one of the most bizarre forms of conceptual detachment we’ve seen in a long time." 24 - Full selection of peripherals "Macs are shut out from a wide range of products and services, from Windows-only home security kits to music download stores and MP3 players – including the Creative Zen Vision:M. Even relatively simple peripherals, such as the handy U3 memory sticks, are persona non grata on Mac OS X." 25 - Build your own computer 26 - The apps don’t crash 27 - Tablets and touchscreens 28 - You don’t need as much RAM 29 - A Mac’s delete key doesn’t delete "No, really! Click on a file in Mac OS X’s equivalent of Windows Explorer. Now, press the delete key. Nothing will happen. A logical, intuitive OS? Is it hell. What you have to do is press the Apple and backspace keys together, or drag the file to the trash can. What a big fat load of rubbish!" 30 - Apple doesn’t like tinkering "Mac users like to boast about how, rather than a traditional BIOS, they have something known as EFI (extensible firmware interface). All very well, but if you actually try to get into the EFI setup to tweak your hardware, you’ll find it’s damn near-impossible. Not so with a PC: just reboot, hit the delete key when prompted, and you’ll have low-level access to your hardware. Tweak it for maximum speed or maximum stability, the choice is yours." 31 - PCs are greener 32 - Best for beginners And here is the best editor of MacUser could come up with for Mac > PC. 1 - Cheaper in the long run 2 - Greater stability 3 - Mac Office is better 4 - More secure 5 - Triple booting 6 - One company controls everything 7 - Macs are faster 8 - Lively developer community 9 - Mods don’t rule 10 - Goodies use Macs, Baddies use PCs Man, 7-10 are all pathetic.
