Not what you may expect. Some compare the hardware with no regard to the OS and how everything (for the most part) just works. You don't go driver hunting and more.

The list of what you don't have to do on the Apple is where the value is.

That is, look at how much time and money you spend on virus and more protection.

What is that worth to you? If nothing then the Apple is not for you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
