Mac or PC?

If your mac has an intel chip, you can run windows.  ;)

I was always brought up around using PCs and Windows and got to grips with it fairly quickly. However, I never really go into the realms of Macs until I started using them for university projects. From which, I have deduced that Macs seem to be a great deal better as a designing tool in comparison to a PC. The aspects of a Mac for audio/visual designing just seemed to be that bit more intuiative (if that's the word I'm hunting for). PCs I'll use for everyday word processing etc but given the choice, having had my eyes opened to what Macs can do, I'd choose a Mac for designing any day of the week! ;)

There are some folks who use both os's.  Mac for day to day stuff, and xp for playing pc video games.

^ I happen to be one such person who likes both Windows and macOS. I would love to get a top of the line MacBook Pro someday, but with that being just as expensive as it sounds, it’s pretty far out of my budget, which is why I have a PC at the moment.

Definitely an Apple person, but grew up on them, they've never had any major issues (I always seem to get operating issues of some kind using a PC), and my Macbook Pro has lasted me... uh... 11 years now... that's quite a long time for a computer! XD Granted it's starting to show signs of fatigue, but definitely a great investment since it's lasted this long!

I use PCs for work, and don't usually have problems with them (but we have like military grade firewalls and such at work that keep nasty crap out), and while I like their price point, I just don't generally like their interface as well (plus GUI is technically Apple's, by way of the guy Jobs hired from Xerox after Xerox's computer totally flopped. XD). But I wouldn't say I dislike PCs, I just prefer Apple.

Well, I’m kinda torn since I primarily use an iPhone for everything now and I’ve never had any problems using a Mac, but I’ve had my Dell PC since I believe 2005 or 2006. It still works, albeit with a host of issues, but it hasn’t kicked the bucket even after 13 years which is honestly amazing. So I don’t know, I guess I just like both :DD

I never really used a mac. Always grew up around Windows computers and even today most software I need will not run on Macs. I have to help Mac people out at my work sometimes and am usually at an absolute loss of what to do :D So yeah, Windows PC for me!

I've used a Mac in school before and it's so different from the Windows PC I'm accustomed with. Even today I still prefer Windows out of habit.
Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.

I'm a PC guy. I've grown up around PCs since I was a toddler and will never stop using them, lest something crazy happens with future technology.
Suddenly, I've written so many fanfics that I can't possibly list them all! :P




Ducky x Petrie forever! :)petrie :duckyhappy

I am a PC guy as well. That might be because it's what I grew up with and thus it's what I got used to. However, there were a good several years when I was in college and one of the computer labs only had Mac computers, so I got to spend a lot of time with Macs as well. However, even after all those years, I never fully got the hang of it. Like, I'm competent enough with Macs that I can navigate my way around, but the layout and functionality has always felt awkward to me. PC just seems more smooth and natural somehow, imo.

Actually, now that I remember, I owned a Mac laptop as well (and I still have it in storage). It was a hand-me-down from my brother, as he didn't want it any more. He's a PC guy too.  :Mo

If you prefer Apple's tech, and don't mind accepting that you'll have fewer hardware choices, you're better of getting a Mac. If you'd like more hardware choices, and want a platform that's better for gaming, you should get a PC.

I just never liked the layout and design of Macs, although I realize this is less of a "negative" and more just my personal preference.
