If you are looking for a new personal computer, a bit of research will tell you that there are PCs available using platforms based on MacOS, Windows and Linux. What makes the decision of figuring out whether any of these PCs are right for you hard is because there is very little between them
Yet a comparison between their weaknesses and strengths will help you determine which PC is right for you, and so here are a few steps to do just that:
Step #1: List out what you want to do with your computer
While basic functions such as web browsing, scheduling and management, multimedia playback and document manipulation are usually no different on these platforms, there are certain advanced features that are best on certain platforms.
For example, if you’re a gaming enthusiast, then Windows would be your choice as opposed to the other two. Content creation, the other hand, is where the Mac reigns supreme, and is considered to be perfect for artists.
Step #2: Understand the strengths of each platform
No matter what you do, don’t think that, as a whole, only one of three platforms is the best. However, there are reasons why the Apple Mac, the pre and custom-built PC exist for customers. The Apple Mac is known for great support and service as well as great looks and features while the pre-built PC offers greater compatibility. Also, custom-built systems are not only available at a better price but their performance is excellent as well.
Step #3: Understand the weaknesses of each platform
When it comes to making a comparison between the weaknesses of these platforms, usually a pre-built PC and an Apple Macintosh is priced high. As for custom-built PCs, the issue of not being user-friendly will need non-technical users to learn more about components before attempting to put a computer together.
