Which is better and why? Im upgrading from my current laptop which is a PC and I was wondering if I should purchase an apple laptop because I heard it was better. Now, I don't know a lot about computers and companies and which is best, that's why I came here to see if anyone has knowledge about these things, f anyone could give me suggestions or the pros and cons of each lamp too.

PS I need it for my college essays, tasks and my writing not for gaming or any of that stuff

The bad things about Apple:

1. For gamers windows is better. However, Apple has improved with gaming but it does not meet what Windows can do when it comes to gaming.

2. Some people do not like the controlling nature of Apple and being told what to do. However, that is one of the things that makes Apple so reliable.

3. Macbooks and Macbooks pros have a bad problem with the screen coating wearing off. This is a well known issue with them and Apple knows their Macbooks and Macbook pros have a problem with this. It does not affect the way the computer operates it just looks ugly.

Pros:

1. Apple computers work. You don't get any of those stupid messages you get all the time on windows computers when windows gives trouble.

2. Apple computers are extremely reliable.

3. There are very few to no viruses for Apple computers.

4. Apple computers are way more user-friendly.

5. Apple computers do not fall to bits like some windows computers do as they are made out of much better materials.

6. Apple computers run very cool and don't get hot and uncomfortable to have on your knee.

7. Apple offers excellent after sales support.

Apple is not better in any way.
Nothing ends up working the way you want to.
Just like the iPhone line-up.
'The screen is slightly better'
Get a PC, Way less expensive, more for the money and more performance than a Mac.

MACS:
Macs are expensive – they retail online (and probably in-store, as well) for anywhere between $800 and $1500; depending on which model you are considering. It's much cheaper to get a certified refurbished one, (which are still thoroughly tested/checked for durability and performance) but I don't know if you'd be open to that. Macs are crafted with attention to detail, and objectively, they are well-built and attractive, sleek machines. The graphics are good, and the picture quality is great. However, the problems appear if or when you want to customize your computer – Apple products are not as personalize-able compared to MS Windows. Their laptops are often NOT upgradable when it comes to hardware – batteries are internal and not removable, and RAM is generally soldered on – meaning there's no way to change the amount of RAM or memory. Macs are most useful and seamless, if you are running other Mac products; and there are sometimes compatibility issues between operating systems, but on the whole, there are many solutions and workarounds for a software problem you might face. While there are a growing number of Apple fans, (Windows users account for about 46% of computer-users in general) Macs are still at relatively low-risk for viruses and worms, compared to Windows. Macs are also considered to be user-friendly, but this is subjective – as it's more what you are used to.

PC:
First things first, the PC is usually advertised at a lower price point. Fully-functional PCs can run you as little as $199, or as much as $1200 to $1500; for a high-end business or gaming laptop. More users in general own a PC versus a Mac; and the software it runs (MS Windows, mostly) though it can be buggy, is stable for the most part. PCs, because they range from low-priced to high-end, can be hit-or-miss when it comes to actual hardware – the cheaper models can be poorly-designed. However, a mid-priced machine, around $600, is generally well-built, and mildly attractive to look at. PCs tend to be more upgradable and customizable compared to the Mac. Specific manufacturers such as Lenovo design their laptops to feature a removable battery, and hard-drives can be swapped easily. PCs are more susceptible to viruses and worms, since the majority of users own them; but of course, free virus protection is easy to use, and will protect you from at least 95% of most harmful malware and spyware. People who are used to Mac's clean and clear interface tend to dislike the Windows-based OS; but again, it all depends on what you are used to, and how tech-savvy you are.

Personally, I've been a Windows user all my life…and it comes down to price, more than anything else. I do tend to stick only with what I know, particularly when it comes to tech; so the learning curve from PC to Mac has proven to be sort of steep for me. I can use a Mac in a pinch, but I find it difficult after spending so much time with Windows.

SteveO:
I own and use both Macs and other Windows-powered machines and macOS tends to just work better all around. Which system I use largely is based on what task I need to complete and there are simply some tasks that are better performed on macOS systems and other tasks that are better performed on Windows.
Summer:
Although Apple is more expensive, it's better.
