In this debate, both individuals will argue that Apple brand computers are either better or worse than the various Personal Computer options. The debate is to be determined by whichever individual has outlined better points for their case. Note that for the sake of this argument, Apple computers are excluded from the definition of PC.

The definitions of the two types of computers will be defined as the following:

Personal Computer (PC)- a general-purpose computer equipped with a microprocessor and designed to run especially commercial software (as a word processor or Internet browser) for an individual user. Potentially self built / designed or purchased from various company's to include (DELL, HP, Sony, etc.).

Apple Inc.- an American multinational corporation headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software and personal computers.

-Round 4 (Conclusion)

Personal Computers (PC) are far superior in a multitude of ways.
1. Apple computers are only pre-built and un-customiziable. They are factory built, and what you buy is what you get. PC's come in a variety of options, ranging from the Pre-Built to the Custom Built. Custom building is where you can buy each individual part and build the computer by hand, only with the need of some Thermal Glue and a star-head screwdriver. This may sound daunting, but even the person with little to no computer knowledge could follow a simply 30 minute guide on YouTube or WikiHow on how to put the parts together. If you do not feel safe in doing that there are websites that allow for you to pick the parts of the computer and they build it for you. Apple Computers cannot be customized as it voids the warranty to them; it also only uses Apple brand computer specs. Apple brand specs are in-superior to the many different brands of regular PC spec's, this will lead me to my next topic.

2. Specs definition. (SPECificationS)- The details of the components built into a device.
Specs are like if you have a Ferrari, you expect to have the engine of a Ferrari. This allows for you to say, "My car has a V8 Engine and can go to X amount of speed". So when your PC you say, "I have a GTX GeForce 660 graphics card, that runs at 3.4 GHz and has 4.0 GB's of data". Whereas when you have an Apple brand graphics card, you can only have that one graphics card in your computer at Apples given speed. Apple brand Spec's do not run as fast as competitors, even though Apple computers have started to use other brands like Radeon, it still comes back to their Benchmark Performance. Benchmark performance refereeing to how fast that specific Spec runs, they uses these Benchmarks to compare from one item to another. This allows for the computer enthuses to pick and choose what they want in there computer. Even though some PC's are pre-built and they are still upgradeable and you can always pick the type of PC that fits the best for you.
Sorry for bad grammar and English, as it is not my first language.
