MAC: Well Macs are much more reliable, How? Because Macs and the Macbook Air can use have Solid State Technology making them much better then a netbook... Meaning that they are msily). If you can see the Pixels, like on a standard screen it can be annoying (Especially when having to read PDFs, eBooks, etc.). Macbook Pro's are also epic when it comes to having to do a ton of work (Photo Editing Class is an example). iMacs or Mac Minis our good for the destops (Example: iMacs for the staff, Mac Minis for the student accessible Macs) But a Mac Mini will have to use at least a 1024p screen so people wont be bothered as easily by pixels.
Windows PC: One of the oldest types of computer types... As these are more commonly used more then its enemy, Macs... When Microsoft announced Windows 1.0 a ton of people got it, the bad thing, RAM was not like 2 GB, it was like upto 2MB at that time, (Biggest RAM probably 130MB), and Windows used a TON of resources, then Steve Jobs and someone I cant remember made the Apple I, the FIRST GOOD functional Computer for home/business. Over the time Microsoft grew bigger and bigger. Over the time they updated Windows. Making Windows 9x was Microsofts Big success, then XP, Vista, and 7, 8, and the NT, 2000, Server, Workstations. On higher end machines, they most likely used Linux, Microsofts Gaming Competitor. To fix things up, Microsoft opened Onlive (Onlive Gaming, Onlive Desktop, Onlive Blah Blah...).
So which is better for business or Educational usage [Mac or PC] Also shouldn't apple add the Optical Disk Back to the MacBook Pro?
