Mac People vs PC People [infographic]

April 22, 2011 |  by  |  Lifestyle

My first computer was a mac and all I ever used it for was to play DinoPark Tycoon. Ever since then I’ve always been a PC person until college. When I graduated I didn’t want the temptation of playing video games on a PC laptop, so I went to Apple. I love my mac. I have never had a computer that has worked this well for this long, although I still hate Macs mostly the company behind them. A PC is such a more versatile computer. Mac has pretty limited capability and is way too overpriced, but now I’ll stop the computer war and get on to today’s infographic.

Those Mac vs PC commercials really seem to have caught the demographic they were looking for after taking a gander at this graphic. Young, hip, vegetarian liberals seem to be the number one mac fans. I’d say that guy on the commercial looks vegetarian. This graphic seems to stress the fact that mac users like design and art, but these art enthusiasts are not just amateur fans. There are a bunch of software from Adobe and other companies that specifically use macs and have for years and years. This software is usually about art, design, film editing, et cetera. This is probably the main reason why Mac users are so artsy. [Via]

    Starting to think this is all part of a PR push to make me buy a Mac.
    If you wanna be cool buy a Mac.

    Since 52% identify themselves as PC oriented (and the Window’s market share is 90%), the demographics information will be skewed a bit. Let’s say we have a room of 10 people. And two people own Macs, while the majority own some sort of PC. We can say 50% of Mac people are liberal, educated, etc. (just 1 guy). And yet, only 37% are the same for PC owners (3 guys).

    This is NOT a mac propaganda.

    I been using PC all my life(I’m 21) and it works perfect. I think people prefer macs is because they are simpler machines, where PC is advanced and more complicated but if you know how to use it, its superior than MAC. Also, a lot of people think Macs don’t have a lot of viruses because OSX is so brilliantly programmed which isn’t true. The reason OSX doesn’t have alot of virus is because of the low market share. All this cocky behaviour by the macs users: I have a MAC and I’m invincible will soon bite them in the ass as MAC sadly grows more popular

    Like Kerry said – this is so skewed that it just doesn’t work. The funniest part is that I as a liberal, city dwelling PC owner am surrounded by Mac owners. Mac owners are more likely to think they are more “unique and different” than PC owners? Does NOT compute.

    Mac people are 21% more likely than PC people to consider themselves computer-savvy gearheads.

    Hey man I just finished building my PC, You should bring over your mac you just bought and show me all the pre-installed programs while I get all the ones I need online
