“As you may have guessed, we’re rather big fans of Apple computers here at Macworld,” Martyn Casserly writes for Macworld UK. “From the pristine beauty of the iMac with 5K Retina display, to the svelte pleasures of the 11″ MacBook Air, we enjoy them all.”
“But why do these devices cause such loyalty and affection from users, when they could buy a perfectly good PC for a lot less money?” Casserly writes. “Here are ten reasons why we think Macs are better than their Windows based brethren.”
MacDailyNews Take: There is no such thing as a “perfectly good PC,” nor are Windows PCs brethren to anything except the antichrist.
10 reasons why Macs are better than PCs:
2) Seamless integration with iOS through Handoff
3) Your Mac is also a telephone
5) They come with excellent software included
6) Build quality
7) They’re faster
8) MacBooks have the best screens (so do iMacs – MDN Ed.)
9) Macs have more powerful Wi-Fi reception
10) User satisfaction
Each of the ten points listed above discussed in detail in the full article here.
MacDailyNews Take: “Macs have more powerful Wi-Fi reception” – when it’s actually working, which is far less often than it should be. There fixed that for ya, Martyn. OS X 10.10.1 has helped somewhat, but vexing, inexplicable Wi-Fi disconnects still happen when they shouldn’t. (Our iOS iPads and iPhones never lose our Wi-Fi, but some of our OS X Macs do with startling frequency – despite many, many attempts at “fixes.” Why is that, Hair Force One?)
Otherwise, to end on a positive note: Windows PCs are crap. It’s not that difficult to be better than Windows PC. Even Google can manage it. However, Apple’s Macs, current Wi-Fi issues notwithstanding, are so vastly superior, we can’t believe that some of the ignorati are still walking out of Worst Buy with crappy Windows PCs. Poor bastages! Wake up ye already, we commandeth!
