Apple gets to control the entire system from the hardware to the OS so they get to tune it in to a much finer degree than Microsoft. MSFT is going to try to catch up by bringing out their own devices but their first round (the Windows 8 RT tablet) is not doing well.
Hope this helps you understand the basic reason why the Apple gets a little edge.
That being said you have fans on both sides that will divert you and tug you in every direction. Stay focused and agnostic here and you'll be better off.
So everyone's right here. Some more than others.
Hi, sorry of this is a no brainer.. but..
I've heard it said that if you're doing a 'mac-based' course - let's say Music Production for example - and you're going to be working at home, you should buy a mac because it's compatible with the mac suites at Uni.
But my own brief research suggests that although macs have a slightly preferable architecture (for deaing with audio and graphics), it is perfectly possible to produce a file on a Windows platform and then edit that file on a mac platform.
is that right?
thanks in advance
