MAC vs PC | Which is better in 2023?

Hardware, True Custom

Which is better PC or MAC

When it comes to the age-old question of which is better, PC or MAC, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. As an experienced system integrator who builds the best computers for the money, I understand both the advantages and disadvantages of using a PC or a MAC. While each type of computer has its unique benefits, I will focus on the transition from using a MAC to a PC from the perspective of an experienced user.

What can a MAC do that a PC cannot?

NOTHING, that’s the point! Everything a MAC can do, a PC can do, and better. Anything from major performance advantages to the price tag.  PCs offer more powerful hardware for less money; this means you get more bang for your buck when building your own custom machine as opposed to buying a pre-built one. This also means you have more control over what components go into your system, which can help you create an even more powerful computer at a fraction of the cost of what you would pay for a comparable machine with similar components. Windows also offers some unique features compared to macOS, such as its Cortana virtual assistant and improved gaming graphics card support if you’re looking for a gaming PC. Overall, desktop PCs provide flexibility, scalability, and affordability that simply isn’t available on macOS machines. With PCs being significantly cheaper than Macs while offering superior performance, it’s clear that they are much better suited for those who are looking to build the best computers for the money.

What is the main difference between MAC and PC?

People choose MAC because it’s a simpler interface. People choose Windows because it is more open to possibility, and is much cheaper to own, which means a greater value.  Some may prefer the stability of the MacOS platform, but that comes at the cost of less customizability. Another advantage of using Windows is the sheer amount of software available for the platform. Millions of applications are available for free or purchased through the Microsoft Store, Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, etc. Finally, with Windows, you can access Linux applications on the same computer – something not available on Macs. With all this taken into consideration, there’s no denying that PCs offer more bang for your buck when building a workstation PC, gaming PC, or desktop tower.

Is MAC faster than a PC?

Custom computer side view

Yes, but only in one aspect – How quickly it becomes outdated. PCs have core strength in having the ability to be upgraded overtime. Even if you don’t have the money to buy “The PC” you’ve been dreaming of, you can start modest and upgrade portions overtime until you have the ultimate PC you’ve been dreaming of.  That’s the beauty of a PC over a Mac – It can be tailored for your needs over time. This means you never have to buy a new computer again! If a piece of hardware needs replacing, you simply replace that part rather than buying a brand-new computer. Not only does this save you a lot of money over time, but it also significantly reduces e-waste as well!

The value of using a Windows workstation

Money, money, money, money savings! There’s no comparison to a Windows workstation when it comes to performance per dollar.  PCs are capable of more than just being cheap – they can be powerful too. Many of the components used in workstation PCs can be bought at much lower prices than those used in Macs and often perform the same, if not better, tasks than Macs. This can result in much higher performance for PCs at lower prices compared to Macs. Additionally, PC components are often more easily upgradeable and customizable than those in Macs, making them more desirable for people who want to customize their machines for high performance. PCs can also handle multiple tasks at once much faster than Macs due to their powerful CPUs and GPUs, which can further increase their performance. Lastly, due to their popularity, workstation computers also have access to more software and applications than Macs, making them perfect for any type of user who needs access to all kinds of programs. All these performance benefits make PCs the ideal choice for anyone looking for the most bang for their buck.

Is Mac or PC more reliable?

Apple markets MAC as being the most reliable system available, but that’s not always the case. With the proper knowledge, you can build a PC that is easily just as reliable, if not more. That’s a value that AVADirect can provide – We know which parts are the most reliable, and we can build any machine (based on those reliable parts) capable of lasting you a lifetime.  Our experts have been building workstation PCs for over 20 years and know what works best for different types of users. Whether it be a gaming tower for high-end gaming performance, a workstation PCs for video editing, 3D rendering or virtual reality, AVADirect has a solution for everyone. Our workstations come with top-notch reliability, and they also offer amazing performance with the latest Intel Core processor technology paired with NVIDIA graphics cards to ensure the best possible performance for your dollar.
