Mac vs. Windows Debate

One of the reasons some decide against purchasing an Apple device is the cost. Apple makes premium computers as well as other devices, and thus charges a premium price. However, when you compare the cost of an Apple device to the cost of a PC with similar specs, the price is very similar. Apple computers have great specs. When comparing a PC that is half the price of an Apple, you will see that the PC offers inferior specs and a lower quality that a MacBook or other device.

There are several good reasons to pay the premium Apple price: build quality, superior integrated hardware, efficient OS, more security against malware, less virus threats, some industry standard software that is unavailable on a PC, as well as very easy to use Apple software, such as iPhoto, GarageBand, etc., that is only available on a Mac.

However, none of these arguments mean much if your budget won’t stretch. What can you do if you really want to own a Mac but simply can’t afford the amount that Apple charges? College students or educational staff members may qualify for a discount. In fact, Apple often offers special discounts on their products.

You can also simply buy an older model or a secondhand Mac for much less money. People often sell their used devices when upgrading to the latest model. Apple resellers usually have plenty of old models in stock when a new model is launched. You can shave one-third of the price off a Mac by buying a previous-generation model.

Picking an older or secondhand model doesn’t mean that you are buying an obsolete device. Apple products are typically stuffed to the brim with the fastest components, have a healthy life span, and will still function admirably. Note that Apple also sells secondhand refurbished models. Even last year’s Mac is technically better than most of this year’s Windows-based PCs.
