Mac vs. PC: Who’s Really Winning?

August 24, 2014 |  by  |  Tech

Last week, I finally took the plunge and bought a Mac. After my ancient 10 lb. Toshiba laptop finally died after a long five year run, I felt like I deserved a nice, lightweight laptop. I started doing research about a month ago on the best laptop to get, but I finally bought it on impulse last week after a reassuring call to a friend with the same laptop. All it took was a quick credit check and a three minute wait before I had my laptop in my hands and happily sauntered out of Best Buy.

I still have my hesitations about this Macbook Air. You see, I’ve always been a PC girl. Sure, the Mac is sleek, light, and pretty… and has so many apps I’m sure I haven’t discovered yet. But that’s just the thing. I have no idea what I am doing with this machine or what it is even capable of. My fear is that I won’t utilize it to it’s $1000 worth of potential. OR heaven forbid, it breaks!? So naturally, I consulted an infographic to try and organize the pros and cons between a Macbook and PC to try and rationalize my fears. So far, I feel okay. We’ll see how the next few days go with this trendy machine, and how it treats me. Hopefully I’ll still write my next post with the same Macbook Air! [via]

    This is one of the worst info graphics I’ve ever seen. These variables are hugely subjective, some of them shouldn’t even be compared to one another, and others are flat out wrong. Your “sources” are largely questionable and the sentence “if you a file or folder anywhere…” Isn’t actually a sentence because it lacks a predicate. Take this bullshit down.

    This is not an infographic, just a list of facts in a dated style with boring stock icons, ugly typography and 2008-gloss.
    Content itself not informative.

    Better remove this.

    Oh! And congratulations with your Mac, good choice.

  • saeen

    My ultra book with windows 8 start pretty fast in less than 20secs.

    After I crashed my hard disk with a virus, I am considering Mac this time.

  • Dp

    You’re wrong about big screen connectivity. My MBP has a full hdmi port, whereas my nvidia 690 gtx only has DVI and mini hdmi which requires an adaptor…

  • gonewest818

    Popularity, market share and units sold are the same basic statistic — you’re slanting the graphic by stating it 3 different ways.

  • Will S.

    The Mac in many ways is the superior product but I think PC wins based on price, Macs are simply beyond the means of people and I doubt the average PC owner would utilize the Mac to its full extent.

  • Andreas Mengel

    Little substance plus typos. Nice pictures do not make your content better.

    • haydesigner

      Also, nice pictures do not an INFOgraphic make.

  • Mex5150

    This was clearly put together by somebody who doesn’t really understand the subject, the most obvious mistake is that mac’s *ARE* PC’s LOL But even if this was put together by somebody who knows what they are doing, it would still be meaningless due to the fact is is all so subjective, different people use computers in different ways and have different needs. Just for the record I run Linux, but jump over to a Win, or Mac virtual machine whenever that is more suited to the task at hand. Why limit yourself to only one OS?

  • Hysteric

    This infographic has lots of baseless “facts” that are wrong. This should really be taken down.

  • haydesigner

    Yes to all the other complaints here.
    ALSO… this “infographic” is almost five years old. That’s more than a full generation in computer years. This info is thusly PAINFULLY out of date.

  • Jim Hubbard

    This is beneath the dignity of dailyinfographic. I expect a poster here to at least GOOGLE their “facts” before posting them in an alleged infographic.

    LIE: “Mac has yet to be threatened by a virus…” Here are the 10 most dangerous –

    LIE: Windows “Can’t run Mac OS” – Run OS X in Virtualbox –

    DECEITFUL : The speed test is crap. What machines were tested? What was the hardware setup? What software?
