Although Mac has made a comeback in the past decade. Microsoft has the leading share in the world's operating system market. This is at least partly because Windows is compatible with hardware produced by companys such as Dell, IBM etc. In the other hand, Mac has always built both its own software AND its own hardware. This has perhaps had the effect of restricting its spread. Many people find this fact makes them turn away from Mac, as they like to be able to customise their computers and mix and match hardware to build their own computers.
It really depends on personal preference, but we would recommend Macs for those with lower computer skills and PCs for those with higher skills. This is not to say that Macs are inferior, in fact they are more user friendly. However, there are some things people like to be able to do with PCs that are difficult, or impossible, to do with Macs such as custom building computers.
