What Makes an iMac Stand Out Over a PC?

Better performance over a PC

Ever since Apple iMac hit the market there has been a question among most of the PC users who have either fed up of PC and their problems or just want to try something new, is it better over the PC with Windows or Linux on it. Well, if you want a system that is completely free of problems, hardware failure, or error and works perfectly, then you won’t find any. But yes iMac turns out to be one of the least problematic system and it has lots of advantages over the standard PC  and that makes it a better system than traditional PCs.

  • The biggest advantage of using an iMac is that you will not have to worry about the security issues. Mac is immune of most of the viruses and malicious applications, still there are a few security issues with Mac but those are not a big deal and they doesn’t cause so much problem as in the traditional PCs.
  • Since it is a Mac computer system it comes with all the advantages Mac has over the other PC. It tends to be more plug and play, you can plug any device into your system and work on that with minimal setting. For a new computer user connecting or configuring any external hardware is a bit easier.
  • These computers are faster and power saver than any other PC and they also last longer. You will be paying a higher price for it than a traditional computer system but it is because you are buying high quality hardware that will work better and last longer.

For all those who need simplicity, beauty and performance, the iMac is certainly a better choice.

The security of Apple imac is leaps and bounds better than pcs the security cannot be beat, and hacking I have researched this too, there is little hacking on imac.

frankbeswick You are welcome.

Thanks. I have been considering an update.

frankbeswick There is an advantage with the iMac if you are a designer. Windows based computers are fine for simple based needs. Though Apple does have less security issues, you need to make sure that you have all the updates and security on your Windows PC.

I have simple needs where computers are concerned: email, Wizzley etc, some favourite websites,and maybe some research. Do you think that I would be better off with an Apple mac than with a windows pc?

DerdriuMarriner There is a price difference, but iMacs are build so much better too.

DerdriuMarriner on 02/04/2016

sandyspider, thank you for sharing! iMacs have their advantages and disadvantages, but it's always appealing when a computer combines aesthetics -- so yes, I like the keyboard design -- with efficiency and performance.
