USA Today Compares Macs and PCs
7:40 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story
Gene Steinberg of USA Today has entered into the Mac vs PC fray by writing an article he titles The ultimate smackdown. Working to dispel the old "megahertz myth", and refusing to accept the results of tests conducted by the computer manufacturers, Gene conducted his own tests to establish which platform is faster. Here is an excerpt from the article:
I've heard from diehard PC users who claim Apple somehow sabotages the test PC to cripple its performance, or that the version of Adobe Photoshop used is specially tweaked to give the Mac an advantage.Whilst not really adding anything new to the old debate, this is certainly a decent article to use to prove your point in your next argument. It must be said that Gene himself is not totally impartial being a Mac user since 1984, but given the nature of the debate, it is unreasonable to expect any article to be without bias. This one is certainly more platform-neutral than most. To check it out, follow the link below.
USAToday compares Macs and PCs
Rather than argue the point, I decided to conduct my own comparison. Apple even provided the actual Photoshop picture used, a full-color photo over 44 megabytes in size, depicting seven bike riders with colorful bikes and helmets. This is the sort of file that graphic artists have to manipulate on a daily basis.
