The reason for this is that many manufacturers of PC’s bundle a lot of other software into their PC’s that are created by third party companies. With all these extra programs and drivers created by third parties running a PC generally has slower performance and is less stable. On the same note this means that there is more software available for a PC when compared to a MAC. There are …show more content…

While the MAC’s may be generally more durable and made of higher quality components when something does go wrong and it will with all computers, the cost and effort required to fix it causes some users to just buy a whole other computer! This is due to the cost of replacement parts and the fact that Apple is using glue to hold many of the components in place.
This makes repair very difficult and expensive. But in defense of the MAC some of the newer

So in the end I think that the PC still has the advantage but the MAC is closing the gap as time goes on. And really your choice depends on what you need your computer to do and how much money you are willing to
