There is almost always a debate going on, and pretty heated at that, regarding the benefits of getting a PC over a MacBook. We are here to put an end to that debate and point out ten of the most obvious reasons why everyone in the world should opt for a MacBook instead of a PC any given day. Trust us, the further you look for answers to this enormously irritating and confusing question, the more you will be thrown into a downward spiral that will have no result. So what is best for you is to accept that Macs are better and get a move on. Given below are the top ten reasons why MacBooks are better than PCs. We should have actually called them the reasons why Macs will always be better than PCs and like they, once you go to Mac you don’t come back! This is true no matter how cliché it sounds.
10. Macs are Cheaper than PCs
We know that all of you are going to contest on this very point and disagree but let us explain. When we are talking about a laptop, a netbook or an ultrabook, the cost spans a few years and is not limited to the first time you pay for the machine. So when you look at the initial payment you might think that Macs are more expensive, but three years down the lane, when you are wishing for a trade-in, PCs would be worth 2% of their original price in direct contrast to Macs. Macs will always get you a good trade-in and there will be a million places which would offer one for a Mac. The same does not stand for a PC. The same stands true this very day too despite the fact that most ultra books these days are severely high priced ( you may refer to our post on ultra books if you want more information regarding them).
9. Getting a Mac is a more convenient option
The next thing we are going to enlist as one of the top reasons why MacBooks are and will always be better than PCs is the convenience. Let us offer a clarification to this otherwise confusing point. With MacBooks you have limited albeit the best options to choose from. In short, you are acutely aware of what you are getting and what you aren’t as well as knowing fully well whether the machine can be trusted. With PCs it is always going to be a hard choice simply because there exists such a plethora of options that you can simply go crazy. We would once again like to refer to you to our post about ultrabooks. Ten of them are PCs and only one of them is a MacBook air. We think this fact makes our point for us.
The next problem is that of viruses. MacBooks initially gained their popularity because of the spyware and malware free atmosphere that they provide. MacBooks are literally not penetrable by viruses at all. Although we do acknowledge the fact that in the attempt to be compatible with windows, Apple might just open some doors.
7. Mac and its Assumptions
At this point we would like to point out the fact that Mac operating systems generally do not make assumptions but when they do, they are almost always right. Same is not the case with Microsoft which keeps on making assumptions irrespective of how many times you have to correct the actions that happened because Windows incorrectly assumed something. You can give it a test by typing “a.” before you start a paragraph and Windows will ensure that every paragraph after that first one is bullet-ed by alphabets! It is just plain annoying.
6. Time Machine
We have a question for you before we move onto our next reason and the question is: How often do you back up you data? If your answer is that you don’t back up then we are guessing that it is most probably because you consider backing up your data a fairly tedious process on your PC. Wait till you try out our next reason, Time Machine, on a Mac! You will always be willing to back up every kilobyte of data that you create, it is that easy.
5. Help Centre
We are sure that you have had troubles with your PCs and we are also sure that you ran to your local electronics store to get it fixed. We are again, also very sure that the store told you to call the manufacturers’ helpline. The process till here is similar for Apple to if you ever need trouble shooting but for PCs there are so many manufacturers involved that no one really takes the blame. You have Microsoft for the software, a plethora of companies for the PC itself and then a gazillion third parties for various drivers and devices and what not! With MacBooks you will only be dealing with Apple.
4. Apple is Simple
The next reason cannot be put more simply. Apple ensures that everything is simplified whereas Microsoft introduces so many different ways out leaving you confused beyond measure.
3. PCs are for geeky nerds where as Apple is for the un-geeky un-nerdy
Another fairly simple and acceptable point that counts as a score for MacBooks is the fact that PCs are generally for people who love looking under the hood. MacBooks are for people who would rather get the work over and done with. No fuss what so ever that is.
2. Windows Compatibility
Ages ago people had this valid reason for not switching to Mac that it was incompatible with Windows and all that years of experience and shit. Now that it is compatible with Windows, what stopping you people? Really?
1 Style Statement
The last reason on our list of reasons favoring Mac, we have the most obvious one for you. If you have looked closely into the movies that you watch, you must have noticed how the laptops featured are almost always MacBook! And you would be lying to us if you say that they didn’t appeal to you as far as their look was concerned! That’s right folks, when it comes down to it, nothing beats the high end glamazon we call MacBooks.
