Macs or PC’s? Which one is a better choice? It's subjective but here are a few key factors that make Mac a better buy. The general perception is Macs are easier to use, even though it doesn't seem so if you’re a long-time Windows user, especially at the beginning. Macs' upfront acquisition cost is higher than PC, but the residue value is a lot higher if you consider trade-in or resale in the future. Another plus with Mac is it's less of a problem in terms of viruses, spyware, and malware. So which MacBook? MacBook Air is the great choice for the budget conscious and also for someone who is always on the go. MacBook Pro is portable but is also at the top performance chart of Mac laptops.
