Some people are even adventurous and have it blended where they use both Mac and Windows. Here we will talk about MAC vs Windows and see the comparison of Mac vs. Windows. Although both are equally strong technology in it's own right when it comes to hardware and software but none the less there is still a difference. Below are some comparison between the two.

Mac:
•Hardware is very expensive for what you pay for and can be limited to what is being offered, even to upgrade your hardware could be very costly.

Windows:
•Hardware is less expensive and more interchangeable with parts made from other manufactures. Easily upgradeable. You get more bang for your buck with Windows products.

Mac:

Mac:
•Hardware and software are harder to upgrade, not as customizable, not third party program and hardware friendly. Not used as often in businesses. App’s drop compatibility with old applications faster.

Windows:

Windows:
•Offers bleeding edge gaming experience. Better graphic cards and CPU to run a game. More options in games, hardware and tools to fin-tune for a non-beatable performance in game play.

The end result is that Macs offer more straight forward approach to computing with fewer maintenance required as to Windows who needs to update more often. Macs have fewer viruses, while Windows requires an antivirus. Windows offers a great backwards compatibility and able to use third party hardware and software while apple products are compatible with only apple products. Windows is the platform that is use mostly around the world. Neither operation system is easy to use nor when it comes to being user friendly that comes with what you are most comfortable and familiar with. Both system as you can see has its pro’s and con’s, which one is best for you; well you can only answer that. I say test drive them both.
