Con

Ok, so Pro challenged me to this.

Well, Pro doesn't really make much of a case here. He says they are cheaper, but what P.C would be cheaper? The new Surfacebook is more expensive than the Macbook Pro.

I think that is really subjective. How is it efficient? Macs are more efficient, because they are less likely to get viruses, so the chance of you losing work time or play time is less

That really is your opinion, i like OS X better

Not really. A thinkpad t400 with a 3200 rpm hardrive and a intel core 2 duo is slower than my macbook with a 512 SSD and an Intel i7 processor.

I only had 1 hour to do this, so that's that.

Dear lord, it took an entire hour to write that? Maybe Macs are worse.

5 points to Con (Conduct, S&G, Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: I have not seen a debate with such little interest in the topic among the two debaters. However, I do agree that Microsoft Windows is more efficient and cheaper than Mac OS.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter doesn't make any effort to explain conduct or S&G. (2) The arguments points require further justification. Simply stating that one side proved to be more efficient and cheaper doesn't explain how they proved it, nor does it examine any arguments made by the other side.

Reasons for voting decision: Ok, so the BOP was on Pro, who had a terrible 1st round, and he didn't give himself any more rounds to redeem himself. The arguments from Con won out because he was able to refute all of Pro's arguments. He showed that PC's aren't always faster than Macs, he pointed out that "better OS" doesn't prove anything, and Pro's just stating his opinion. He also won the cheaper and more efficient arguments, because the definition of efficient wasn't provided by Pro. And finally, the cheaper argument was refuted because Con showed that not all PC's are cheaper than Macs. So to conclude, BOP was on Pro, all 4 of Pro's arguments were easily refuted by Con, so arguments to Con.
