I am not one of those people that hate Microsoft or apple. I do not have a bias toward any of the companies. In my opinion, apple computers seem to work much better and smoother then any other computer and brand on the market. You can have the bare minimum requirements and hardware on a computer and it would still run great. Microsoft you have to worry about these updates that can screw up your system start up. You have to worry about unwanted adware and viruses. On a mac, no worries at all. Yes both sides have there advantages of using their system. Microsoft overall has more programs to use then a mac but overall a mac runs smoother in operation.
