Considering the switch between Mac and Windows? You’re not alone. As many as 1 in 4 Windows users plan to jump ship to a Mac in the near future. But Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, publicly admits that Windows 10 remains ten times more popular than Mac OS. Right now the OS war is heating up and you might be tempted to switch teams.
Let me help you figure out the pros and cons so you can make a fully-informed decision. I personally use a 2019 Macbook Pro for work and an HP Omen gaming desktop for fun. I’ve previously built multiple custom windows rigs. If you ask my parents and grandparents, I’m their go-to tech guru, so you can trust me too!
As I write this article, Statista provides a near real-time Windows vs Mac marketshare report: 77.6% of computers run Windows and 13.17% of computers run Mac OS X. Apple has kicked Windows out of the mobile arena, but Microsoft is maintaining PC dominance.
Most tech writers agree that Windows 10 brought Microsoft toe-to-toe with Apple in the OS software war. But software is just one piece of the puzzle. We’ll go more into hardware in a second.
Mac OS vs Windows laptop and desktop debates are incomplete without an honest look at their drastically different approach to hardware. Apple has a strong track-record of releasing extremely sophisticated and polished hardware, even if the classic Macbook’s style is growing stale. Microsoft has entered the hardware arena, but they’ve maintained their OS licensing deals with an endless list of PC manufacturers. There are clear pros and cons to opening the garden up to everyone, versus walling it off.
When a friend or family member asks me whether they should save money by purchasing a Windows PC or spend a little more on a Mac, here’s what I tell them:
If you aren’t interested in gaming and you’re looking for a hassle-free user experience, go with a Mac. If you are willing to deal with a few extra tech headaches here and there, you want to game with your friends and you want to use the world’s most popular OS, go with a Windows PC.
Of course, in my case, I use both. I’m a geek and enjoy the latest and greatest tech. I run X-Plane 11 on my windows gaming rig, but spend my workday on my Macbook pro. I love them both for different reasons. Hopefully, this unbiased and open-minded review helps you make your next computer purchase!
