Apple users are better educated than PC users. They're also more popular and and generally younger, according to personalised recommendations Web site The Hunch.
The site, a "collective intelligence decision-making system" co-created by Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake, took answers from 397,859 people and cross-referenced the data with other questionnaires to come up with ways in which PC users differ from their
traditionally more smug Mac-wielding counterparts.
The results are intriguing. The Hunch suggests 67 per cent of Apple fans have a university degree, compared to 54 per cent of Windows users. The figures also show Mac users are 50 per cent more likely to throw frequent parties than those who use a Windows PC.
Mac users are more likely to be of a liberal political inclination, prefer indie films to the Hollywood blockbusters fancied by their PC counterparts, and are more likely to wear designer clothes, according to Hunch's stats.
PC users do one-up their Mac counterparts in some areas of the study. Sixty-nine per cent of PC people say they would rather ride a Harley Davidson than a Vespa, whereas 52 per cent of Mac users, who would prefer to ride the iconic scooter. Crave thinks this statistic meshes well with the revelation that Mac people are 80 per cent more likely to be vegetarian.
There are some areas where Mac and PC users agree with each other, notably the fact that all Linux users are idiots. Only kidding. Both sets of users say debates about operating systems are utterly pointless.
