Re: Mac and Windows

Well, a Mac a machine and Windows is on OS. So you can't compare them.
But you can run Windows on a Mac (in Bootcamp) and then you have both!

Adding to the other reply

Apple writes the OS and uses the same hardware components in the same models. Windows is a Micorsoft OS written to run on all different hardware components by third party hardware companies like (HP, Dell and Lenova). So the Windows machine have to support a larger number of components and the manufactures write software called driver to get their components to work in Windows.


Apple has less driver errors because they typically don't mix and match components. Apple will cost more because they are the only ones that sell the Apple Computer with the Apple OS. Whereas Windows is sold by multiple vendors (dell, Acer, Hp, Asus and Lenova to name a few) and the compete in pricing. Because of Windows being able to run on multiple brands of PC it took off in the business world. Today Apple and alot of Windows machines use Intel processors also but AMD also runs Windows.

Apple is know for their customer support and they are easier to use it doesn't allow the OS to be tweaked. Windows also more user tweaking.
