Mac vs PC – which is right for you?


If you are thinking about purchasing a new computer then you may like to consider if you are going to go for a Mac or a PC. Mac is created by Apple and has many loyal followers. Not everyone can get on with a Mac but if you are already a fan of Apple then you may find them great. They do often have a higher price tag than the equivalent PC but are known for their reliability. You can run Mac operating system software on PC’s (although it is not as good as running it on a Mac) but not the other way round.
