PC is better than Mac


I know what you are thinking, and the answer is – NO, this is not another article about which better tool is for designers.

Then what is it about?

It’s about design aesthetics, and while it’s very subjective there is one thing we can all agree about, Macs look all the same. The Clean and sleek design appeals to our inner geek. We wait in line for the latest release and trade-off our old one for something that looks identical. However, if you think about it, the Macs’ aesthetics feel very totalitarian, since Mac uses proprietary hardware. Aesthetic customization of a Mac is limited to Apple alone.




You probably are thinking right now – But Ernest, aren’t all HP or Dell computers look the same as well?

Yes, this might hold true when buying a branded PC like HP or Dell. However, unlike Macs, PC hardware is open source. This means we can build our own computer without going through a manufacturer. As designers, this is almost design heaven in which we creators can inject our own personality into something we use every day. Not only that but anyone can create a PC that is half the price of a Mac and get the same or more performance for their money.

So why not get started and design your own PC? Click the button below and get inspired by other people’s PC creation.

    Nice button and interesting topic! I think Apple has won us over with their style and usability, they continue to try to outdo themselves and push technology further.

    This was interesting. I think it depends on how you surround yourself with and what you plan on doing with your computer. All of my serious gamer friends all have these crazy PCs, they’re incredible. All of my designer friend have Macs, it actually be because our school is more Mac friendly than PC.

    I built my own PC and I love it more than a Mac. I never rally understood why designers like Macs over PCs. I’ll take functionality over looks any day.
