Many people have a certain attachment to the types of computers they use. There is widespread argument on this subject. I believe that computers with Microsoft are better than the apple made Macs. My adversary is a die-hard apple fan. This debate is only on computers.

To start out the debate by saying that I'm a, "Die-hard hard apple fan" which I use one or two apple products, Is a bad statement. But apple is a good product. 51 percent of the population have an apple product. I would like too know how many people own Microsoft products. And Microsoft was good for its time, but apple is the good product for the current time.Microsoft computer share

First of all, your statistics are way off. Apple is the fourth most popular computer brand, headed by Acer, Dell, and HP; which all use Microsoft OP. Apple has only 10.7% of all computer sales. Microsoft computers have more options than any Apple computer, since there are more makers of Windows computers than Apple. Apple computers have no Blue-ray drives or HDMI ports. Windows also has a host of installable software. Apple does not have as many options to install apps and programs into their computers. Windows computers also have Microsoft office, which runs better on Microsoft computers than with Apple. Finally, a lot of people, from teachers to gamers, said in a test that a Windows computer is better than an Apple. This test has even won over a long time Apple user too a Windows computer.

Now, let's get back to the basics. What is the most important is the cost. On average, a good Windows computer costs $500-$1000, a Mac computer costs $1200-$1700. Windows computers are much more familiar. On Apple you don't know where the home is; is it the Mission Control, Launchpad, or the Dock? All Windows computers are familiar to consumers. Even though Apple is "ground breaking," all windows OS are refinements, not re-imagined, that means that Windows computers are better but recognizable.

Reasons for voting decision: All Con does is appeal to popularity, rather than argue anything fallacious. Whilst Pro didn't point that out, Pro's arguments were better, involving actual reasons why Microsoft is better. Conduct to Pro for Con's forfeits. Sources to Pro, as one of them counter-acted Con's mysteriously unreferenced graph.
