Aqui está uma noticia/teste que tantos esperam.... Two very common questions related to Mac vs PC hardware: * Mac vs PC - What’s different about the hardware? * Mac vs PC - Why do Macs seem to be more expensive than PCs? Let’s take a look at the hardware inside a Mac and see if this gives us some insight to the Mac vs PC Hardware question and why a Mac may seem more expensive than a PC… Mac vs PC - What’s different about the hardware? So if you take apart a Mac, will you find top-secret Mac only computer hardware inside with the serial numbers filed off for security reasons? No, you will find many of the same computer components that you might even find in a similarly configured PC. A few years ago there was one big difference that separated Macs from PCs, that was the CPU. Macs in the past used Power PC chips that had a RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) based processor and PCs use an X86 CISC (Complex Instruction Set Computer) based chipset. Now with the new Intel based Macs, Macs and PCs share even more of the same hardware and for this reason, Macs can now easily run Windows if need be. The real difference with the Mac hardware over a PC is how Apple handpicks and configures all the components to run with absolute optimization on Apple’s own OS X operating system. There are virtually no bottlenecks or hardware components that aren’t taken advantage of to their utmost. What this means is with two similarly configured Mac and PC computers, the Mac will outperform the PC. This is also true even when comparing Windows verses Windows on Mac vs PC similar configurations. ....continua no site.
