Which is better, Apple or Microsoft? This is a topic of a lot of debate today. I have chosen to focus on computers manufactured by both companies. Apple manufactures MAC computers while a number of different companies manufacture PC’s that run Microsoft’s

So as I stated before the quality of the computer you buy follows the same old rule as everything else “you get what you pay for”

Another major concern of computer users today is security. MAC’s tend to be
