The Differences Between an Apple and a PC

First understand that an Apple or Mac computer is a PC.  PC stands for ‘personal computer’ which an Apple computer is one. So how come only Macs or Apples get referred to by their brand name, while PCs can be any one of many computer brands which are not Apples? That is because Apples are so thoroughly branded that many people think they are something completely different. This is simply not true. Apples, IBMs, Lenovo, Vaios and others are all ‘pcs.’

Ok, back to the question, which is now made even stronger, how are Apple’s so different from other PCs that they are called by their brand name and all other computers are lumped together into one group commonly referred to generically as ‘pc?’

The main, outstanding difference is that Apples have their own operating system and run on a particular type of software designed especially for their OS. Other computers can all run on the same software and have the same operation system.

There are other differences, such as hardware customization, and more. It is harder to get a virus on an Apple, and graphics programs are more powerful on Macs. There are many reasons Mac or Apple users can be called junkies, they just love their Apples.
