The main difference is software and games to me. With an Apple, you are using a computer that is versatile and easy to use. It's also geared towards professional applications with an emphasis towards creative services - arts, entertainment, marketing, music, video, etc. Windows is a fully functional system that has considerable weaknesses with respect to viruses and general stability. The upside of Windows is that there are more games and applications that can be used for usually a cheaper price. Plus, many internet games and applications are also written for Windows. Though this is far less of an issue than in years past. If you're only using the computer for family entertainment and games, I would probably recommend Windows. If you're looking for a system that fully operates on both platforms (Windows and Apple) and you plan to keep the computer for more than two years, you'd probably need to consider an Apple.

You would buy a mac for the operating system called OS X. It contains no viruses, and is generally more stable than windows. It also includes Great software that helps you make a website, edit your photos, edit videos quickly and easily, make music (even with built in instruments and beats) and make DVD Menus. You also get great support for a mac. You can even run windows. I have many macs and love them all.
You would use a pc if you want a slow cheap computer that makes word documents and not much else (aka a bargain PC) most of the decision is what you want to do. what do you want to do with the computer?

You get what you pay for, Machintosh makes the hardware, and writes the operating system. No other computer manufacturer can say that. Plus you can run windows on a mac.....better than it runs on a pc. ANd your mac will be around alot longer. And if you value your time, and how it equals money, you dont want to be pulling your hair out while your on an out sourced call to the other side of the planet to get a walk through by someone reading instructions of another computer on drivers or what not that didnt come with the operating system. Not to mention the 2 hrs you will need to install the operating system, because you know it doesnt come preinstalled like a mac. In addition to all the virus, spyware, pop up windows and malicious sotwares you'll have to keep deleting every other week...........its no contest.


Chose wisely.

DON'T BUY A PC!!!!!! Get the mac. A mac can do everything a pc can... and more. I recently got a pc... BIGGEST MISTAKE of my life. Vista crashed on me every 30 minutes and then one day the computer stopped turning on at all. Buying a pc will probably end up costing you tons of time and money. Macs are super reliable and they actually work!

SOURCE: macbook recognizes dell projector, but not vice versa

Hello,
Your Macbook should automaticaly find the best resolution, if everything was OK. Is there any HDMI input on the dell projector? What projector is it? Is there is an HDMI input, you can use a HDMI to mini DVI cable: better picture and sound than VGA, and will probably solve your problem

If you can afford it the entry-level Macbook Pro 13" from Apple is one of the best you can buy. If you're a Windows user and want a PC you can't go wrong with any of the Toshiba Portege or Satellite models. Steer clear of Dell, Fujitsu, and Acer.

Which is the best laptop?


This is very subjective, but either the MacBook or MacBook Pro because the MacBook Air is more expensive than the Macbook because it is thinner, but does not outperform it.
Now between the MacBook and MacBook Pro there are so general guidelines: -If price doesn't matter, the MacBook pro is the best Apple laptop because of its RAM and Aluminum body finish, also its Sandy Bridge processors and its new Thunderbult Port.
If price does matter, than there are some general deciding factors:
  • What do you do? If you work on your MacBook pro using PhotoShop and Movie Editors and a lot of software- the MacBook Pro is what you want. Also if you game, the MacBook pro is awesome.
  • Is it just for fun? If you want this laptop just for recreational use and not for games requiring heavy processing power for graphics, just get the MacBook.
Bottom Line: MacBook Pro is the best Mac laptop

Hi, I have forgotten password for Macpro apple. how could i get involve?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I cant find Macpro, but Macbook pro from Apple.

- if this is the one, then:

In a word 'no', you need the disk, then it is very easy.

If you have lost your disks, Apple will replace them for a small cost, less than the price of a retail version of Tiger.

You could also take it to your local Apple Store and ask if they will help...they shouldn't charge you anything !
