Mac versus PC – Which Computer Hardware is Right for My Business?

Apple is obviously taking over, but there’s one other piece of tech that is pushing its way into our homes, offices and universities other than the iPhone and iPad. Once only the tool of choice for designers and other creative types, the Mac offers a number of business-focused solutions for those looking to upgrade.

But what are the pros and cons when it comes to sticking with the faithful PC or upgrading to a shiny new Mac, our computer support experts help you decide!

A more cost effective solution

Whilst there are a range of plus points for choosing a Mac or PC, one simple fact remains for businesses that are tight in the budget department, the Mac may be a purchase too far. A MacBook Pro costs up to £1,600, whilst the average PC of a similar specification costs just half that. Entry level PCs can also be picked up for as little as £300.

There are many individuals that would back the Mac until the end, with these parties considering the price tag justifiable for the specification, build quality and reliability that is received in return.

Enhanced user experience

The Mac provides a better user experience for those working across all industries, however, if your workforce has been used to PCs for quite some time then the additional computer support and training required may be a step too far in regards to time and money. Once your employees have got the hang of using Macs however, you may find that your work environment is much more positive and productive as a recent survey revealed that the majority of people enjoy using Macs more.

Lower the risk of hacker attack

Whilst no one is safe from the cyber-attack, viruses and malware are much more common on PCs, especially those running Windows. Hackers and fraudsters tend to focus on PC compatible attacks as more people tend to use PCs but as the Mac becomes more and more popular hackers are certain to expand their repertoire.

Think before you switch

There is no definitive answer regarding whether a Mac or PC is better for business, and it is essentially up to you to weigh up the pros and cons for your individual company. For those looking for slow integration then compatibility between Macs and PCs makes it easy to use both within your company without affecting file sharing, shared drives and resources, or software.
