Buying a​ New Computer 101: the​ Basics
Ok if​ your reading this I'm going to​ asume that you already have a​ computer but lets face it,​ in​ todays computing enviroment the​ power (speed) of​ computers doubles about every 18 months .​
We like to​ joke that when you get a​ new computer its obsolete before you can get it​ out of​ the​ box.
You have completed the​ first step,​ deciding that you need a​ new computer,​ now we​ must make a​ vital decision before any others can be made .​
Do you want a​ Macintosh or​ a​ Windows based computer? In the​ past Macintosh computers could only run the​ Macintosh operating system,​ however with the​ release fo the​ Intel chipsets in​ the​ new Mac Pro line users can now run either windows or​ Mac OS X .​
The basic advantages to​ buying a​ mac are: more stable operating system (aka it​ doesn't crash as​ often),​ for all practical pourposes they do not get viruses,​ adware or​ spyware,​ the​ tech support is​ very good,​ you can run Windows XP or​ Mac OS X and the​ operating system is​ very easy to​ use .​
Now the​ advantages of​ owning a​ Windows based computer are: cheaper,​ to​ be honest this is​ the​ honly advantage that I​ can think of​ and the​ main reason they are cheaper is​ usually because inferior components where used.
I own several computers,​ two Macs and a​ PC .​
I​ love the​ macs they are a​ joy to​ work with,​ they never break and I​ never have to​ defrag the​ hard drvie or​ run a​ virus scan .​
The PC I​ use because I​ like to​ play games .​
It is​ constantly breaking down adn having problems .​
It really comes down to​ this,​ if​ you want to​ play games and you cant instal Windows XP on​ your mac then buy a​ PC if​ you cann install windows on​ your mac buy a​ mac .​
Macs use higher quality components and are more reliable!
