Celebrity Death Match: Mac vs. PC

You’ve probably heard all the gossip about Macs vs. PCs. It seems like everyone has a chosen side in the battle between platforms. So how do you know which one is right for you?

Macs & PCs each have their strengths and weaknesses. Spending a few minutes thinking about what you’ll need your computer to actually do will save you a lot of potential headaches in the future. Of course, in recent years the capability gaps between Mac and PC have inched ever closer, meaning you can increasingly use either platform to meet your specific needs. Still, it’s good to know where to start when you’re looking for the most effective technology solutions.

If your focus is on multimedia editing and you need something easy to use fresh out of the box with limited setup and solid default security options, then a Mac may be right for you.

But if you’re looking to rely on network resources, regularly upgrade, and customize or if you have a limited budget, a PC might be the better way to go.

Whichever one you choose, Mannassi IT Solutions can be your tech support. We’re your one stop shop for all your computer needs, whether Mac or PC!

What you’ve heard about Macs is true, but you might not know everything.

Yes, it's true! Macs don’t have as many problems as PCs, and yes it's true! That they are less susceptible to viruses. But the Macs’ many wonders don’t mean they are problem free, and the cost of Apple equipment can put them out of reach for some small businesses. Here are three strengths and common issues with the long-lauded Mac:

1: Macs have nuances and nuisances all their own. They are sometimes finicky when it comes to binding to domains, shared drives, and especially with managed security software.

2: Macs come with built in encryption software that enhances security and they integrate well with iCloud and iPhone apps but network integration can sometimes be a challenge if the system hasn't been prepped properly.

3: When the Mac has issues, solutions come fast. Imaging on Macs can be a major problem. However, with the proliferation of MDM software, it is quickly becoming less of a challenge.
