How To Know Whether To Buy A PC Or A Mac? [Flowchart]

PC Or A Mac Header

We are actually going to take on the ongoing question whether to buy a PC or a Mac today. Don’t go thinking this article is one of those “Are PCs better or does the Mac actually outperform the PC”. It is not one of those articles at all actually. This one is more aimed towards helping you decided which one of the two is a better purchase for you. By using this decision flowchart, you will be able to determine whether you need a PC or a Mac for whatever it is that you’re doing.

There is always a storm brewing when one of these flowcharts is presented, and I don’t expect this one to be any different. The reason for that pretty much boils down to the fact that PC people and Mac people have been at it since Steve Jobs and Bill Gates got in each others hair back in the day. They started all the humbug, and it’s bound to continue for a very long time.

The flowchart presented to us is called “PC Or Mac?”, and is brought to us by PC Dial A Fix(design by jade5sparks). It is exactly what it says it is, a flowchart that helps you pinpoint whether you are in need of a PC or a Mac. Some of you know that if you’re a gamer then the PC has a lot more to offer. If you’re a Mac user, there is a lot of software that is actually running better than on the PC. So as you can see, it all boils down to what you are going to use the computer for.

You basically have to answer 4 questions, and then sum up your points and look at the end of the flowchart. Sometimes making a decision is easy, although you don’t just want a computer for one particular reason. A computer should be a tool that can perform many tasks, and that is why this flowchart could fall a little short. To decide whether to buy a PC or a Mac has never been easy, this flowchart, however, might just make it a little bit easier.

Nice article but there is one important caveat. Macs can run Windows now, too, using Boot Camp or VMWare Fusion or Parallels. This essentially levels the playing field of Windows’ perceived software title advantage.

Howzabout CHROMEBOOK? Curious about that. I’ve always always been Mac, but these days Mac AIN’T Mac no noah and the sight of those yellow anti-suicide nets at their Foxconn factory in youknowwhere don’t make me a happy Macker. OK, howzabout a compromise: Next time, yet another Mac BUT instead of $300 for insurance get a Chromebook. I only do 2 things anyway: write (and I’m not happy that with .docsx I can’t open years of .doc files, sayonara) and do the Net, mainly Google search, Wiklipedia research, dictionary.com, and stream a flix. Das ist ALLES. I miss my old Macbook, those were the days when I could burn stuff (my iTunes) to a disc in one second. Now I follow instructions and keep following and keep following until I finally say, F. this. Time is up.

Calling PCs the budget-conscious option is misleading. Take a look at the resale value of that $1400 Mac v that $1000 PC after 3 years. The Mac will have lost around $400 – $500 in value. The PC about $700 – $800.

I have an easy way to figure it out:

1) Open a Terminal window
2) Execute the command vi
3) add the text “hello world”
4) save it as a file called hello.txt

If you can’t get past step 3 buy Windows. If you can save your money and go with Linux

Agree with Todd. It’s irresponsible to recommend any kind of proprietary operating system when free versions exist.
