The Apple vs. Microsoft Debate

6 Nov


It’s no secret that the war between Apple and Microsoft has been going on for years. There will always be those certain two-sided debates that will forever be up for dispute. Chocolate vs. vanilla. Republican vs. Democrat. Chevy vs. Ford.


I am completely unbiased as to whether or not one is better than the other. I have owned an old Sony computer with Windows Vista operating system for years now and never really had an issue. However, at the time I purchased this old dinosaur, I wasn’t rich enough to afford a Mac computer. With all the new technology out there and opportunities to network through social media, I’ve decided it’s time to do my homework and find a computer that best suits me and will benefit me in the future.

According to my research so far, Microsoft has basically dominated the world’s operating systems market due to the fact that they created an operating system that is compatible with lots of different hardware that is created by companies such as HP, Dell, Sony, IBM, etc. Apple created a design that only works perfectly with their hardware. So that could potentially create issues when it comes to formatting of documents and things like that.


The next thing I read up on was the reviews of features, prices, battery life, keyboards, etc. I am really picky about my keyboard. Some people prefer to have their keys spaced out to reach optimal typing speed, but I like the keys close together. Another big thing for me is the price, of course. Nowadays, all different brands can get pricey. I’ve found that Apple focuses more on the appearance and flashiness of its’ products as well as ease-of-use. While this is really nice and pretty to look at, I don’t wanna pay hundreds of more dollars for that unless there are some great added features that it offers as well.

One important thing that has jumped out at me with the Mac computers is that a lot of big social media companies are said to be using them. With my degree being in sales and marketing, this might be something I want to keep in mind. I know Apple is excelling as far as the creative programs go.


I will also say that the Iphone 5 is awesome! I can admit that in the last several years of owning an Iphone, I have never experienced any major problems. So I guess I am not necessarily choosing one company over the other, but rather searching for the gadgets and gizmos that fit my needs and spending budget best. I’m still on the hunt!
