Windows vs MAC OS2In the 21st century, we have made tremendous strides in technology from how we watch television, communicate with one another, and how we use the personal computer whether at work or for personal enjoyment. In this essay, we will take a look at the improvements of the personal computer but more importantly review two of the top sellers of our time. Not since IBM introduced the personal computer in the 1980’s have we seen such fanfare when talking about the Microsoft Windows Operating System (OS) versus Apple’s MAC Operating System (OS). For this essay, we will compare and contrast the Windows 10 against Mac OS X and provewhy Windows is a better product. Additionally, we will review Windows 8 and go over the training and troubleshooting options of one of Microsoft’s latest OS.First, we will identify three key areas that make for a great operating system which are hardware, memory, and battery life. Up first will be the Windows 10 OS which has now turned ayear old (Weinberger, 2016). The Windows 10 Surface Pro 3 has upped the ante by converting your traditional laptop with a laptop/tablet combination. The Surface Pro 3 includes a stylus pen and detachable keyboard making your laptop a multi-use piece of hardware. As stated by Anthony, (2014), “Watching the Surface Pro 3 event yesterday, I wryly smiled as Panos Panay finally revealed Microsoft’s vision for the future of mobile computing: The stylus”. The MacBook Pro does not have a touchscreen or pen.
