If you rely on Windows software and applications, you’ll find it a more seamless transition to purchase a PC over a Mac. Whereas if you do most of you work on other applications such as Google Documents, you’ll be able to use either Mac or PC with ease and will have greater choice of which computer to purchase.

If you are looking for a laptop that is portable and easy to take to business meetings or to college, you’ll find that the Mac Book Air is particularly light although modern Mac Book Pros are also designed to be light weight and portable. However, there are still a lot of light weight PCs on offer such as the Microsoft Surface Pro.
So if you are looking to purchase a new PC and couldn’t decide between a Mac and a PC, hopefully the info above has proven useful and will help you make a well informed decision on which PC to purchase.
