I believe that Apple computers are better for students who have a creative side. The options and apps plus being able to personalize is exceptional compared to PC.

Mac computers are not good to keep in schools. They are confusing for many students to use as compared to the regular PC. If you compare copying and pasting something in a PC to something on a Macintosh computer, you may notice that it is way simpler on a PC, thus less time wasted for the students.

When you say "personalize" I assume you mean changing backgrounds, wallpapers, taking pictures, and everything else. If so, none of that is needed and everything else can be done on a PC. They have Word, PowerPoint, etc with all the same features. As a result, Macintosh computers are really just fancy looking computers that cost more money.

Copying and pasting is not always plagiarism. If they copy and paste an entire article from the internet without citations, that would be plagiarizing, for example. But let's say they were doing a project with the school Apple computers and found a picture they liked. It would be harder to copy and paste that picture, and the student could have planned to cite that picture afterward (which, when copying and pasting URLs, it is much more convenient to copy and paste the URL instead of typing out every single letter which the proper capitalization, typing out every single punctuation mark, and typing out every number in the correct order.)
