It’s no surprise that the war between Mac and PC users has been going on for ages. But now- a- days, Ultrabooks (the PC world’s answer to the MacBook Air) are getting better day by day. Models such as the Asus Zenbook, HP Envy and Dell XPS are a credit to the breed. We will take a closer look to evaluate the important features and technical specifications of both the Macs and the PCs.

Operating System Versions - Market ShareMac operating system has traditionally been more stable than Windows. The main reason for this is that Apple used to produce both the hardware (Mac computer) and the software (Mac operating system). They had better control over the integration of the entire system. Now Apple uses the same architecture as a PC, but is selective about the components within the system to ensure stability. Since the Windows operating system can run on hundreds of different types of computers, variations in hardware configurations within those computers can cause stability problems. Now three years old, Windows 7 offers PC users superb speed, stability and functionality – with very few problems.
Winner: Tie

MAC into a PC (and vice verse)
A MAC can run Windows on it(By installing software like Boot Camp) whereas Apple does not allow the use of its operating system on non-Apple hardware. So a Windows PC cannot run Mac OS X.
Winner- Mac

Apple spends years sweating design details. As a result Macs are known for their elegant designs and stunning lines. Attractive colors and curvy looks make the MAC aesthetically more appealing than the PC. PCs have also come a long way in changing their looks. New generation ultrabooks are getting its looks closer to that of the Mac but it depends upon the PC manufacturer.
Winner: Mac

User Interface
The most noticeable difference between Macs and PCs is in the user interfaces. While both have a graphic user interface, Mac was the pioneer of the GUI technology and still continues to be the masters of it. But here we cannot say PCs have bad GUI, it totally depends upon personal preferences.
Winner- Tie (depends on user preference)

Traditionally PCs have had the upper hand when it comes to gaming because more publishers developed games for the PC platform and PCs have also provided more powerful processors and speed is an important criterion when it comes to gaming.
Winner- PC

Hardware - Mac vs PCBoth computer runs on same architecture and processor (generally intel’s processor ) but as discussed above the Mac OS and hardware are designed for each other but PCs have different hardware configurations like Macs typically have smaller hard drives than PCs and Macs have the memory between 1 to 4gb while PCs have anywhere from 2gb to 8gb.
Winner- tie game

Both systems support most open-source software’s. Software for both systems is user friendly and easy to learn. For the average user, this may be more of a tie. But if you’re a finance person or a gamer, you know the Mac finishes a poor second.

Adobe programs and other major software titles are very similar or identical on both platforms. If a game-maker even deigns to make a Mac version of a title, it will come out months after the PC release. Instrumentation and general application software’s are generally made for PCs.
Winner: PC

PCs and Macs can usually share peripherals if they connect via USB, FireWire, or Bluetooth, Most popular applications for Mac and PC use the same file formats, making it simple to exchange documents with friends and coworkers or move existing files from a PC to a Mac.
Winner- tie game

When you are choosing Mac then you accept a compromise that you cannot upgrade your Mac. You can’t even replace the RAM in a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro with retina display because the memory is soldered to the logic board. With PCs, it’s easy to swap out drives and sound and graphic cards, or even build a custom PC from the ground up, if you’re reasonably handy.
Winner: PC

Mac computers are inherently more secure than PCs. Macs are rarely the target of malware attacks and no notable virus has been written specifically to attack the brand. The reduced number of its users also allows the company to focus much of their strategy on excellent technical support and security measures while PCs have maximum number of users and hence maximum virus are made for PCs. Yet you’re secure on a PC when you have an antivirus software installed – and can withstand a hit.
Winner: Tie game

Some of the highly engineered Ultrabooks have finally caught up to or dipped under the Rs. 55,000/- entry-level price tag for MacBook Air. But most PC users can buy a perfectly good laptop or desktop for around Rs 30,000/-.
Winner: PC

Mac Users
Mac computers are most widely used in the creative professional market, including journalism and desktop publishing, video editing and audio editing, and have also made inroads into the educative and scientific research sectors. PCs are also used with some of the video and audio editing and research purposes but are found largely as the Home or Office Computer. PCs are also widely used in gaming due to a wider variety of games available for the Windows platform.

PC UsersSo which one is better – a Mac or PC? That really depends on what the user wants to do and is comfortable with. Weigh the pros and cons based on your work needs and personal requirements to get the best out of the brand and model of your choice. Well, the sole purpose of this post is to show you all the facts about both types of Computers, and let you decide. After all, the only person who knows you the best is YOU!


Mini Display Port

The Mini DisplayPort (MDP) is a miniaturized version of the external display connecting port. There are many other display connecting ports like VGA port, DVI port and HDMI port. All these are used for connecting external displays (like Projector, LED/LCD TV) to your laptop, notebook, desktop and mobile devices.

Mini Display Port - What is it?

 The main differences between Mini Display Port and other Display connecting ports are:

Size : There are practical issues. With other display ports, you have to use thumbscrews to insert and secure a connection; whereas you just have to push a Mini Display Port connector into place as you would with a USB device. And, you can’t easily bend a MDP (Mini Display Port) connector’s pins, like you can do with that of a DVI/VGA connector.

Higher resolution: The use of a digital micro-packet signaling protocol enables the standard to support higher resolutions. Mini Display Port supports up to 2560×1600 pixels resolution Display.

Audio: Generally audio signal is not transmitted through MDP but it depends upon the manufacturers of laptop/notebook/ultrabook. Some devices support audio transmission over MDP, but in case of no audio transmission we can use standard sound card that is the available audio out jack (3.5mm audio jack) on laptop/notebook/ultrabook for sound.

Mini Display Port was first introduced by Apple but now it is being adopted by a number of PC makers, these ports are generally used in notebooks/ultrabooks. Following are the devices which have mini display port:

  • Apple- MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro
  •  Dell- dell XPS13”, 14”, 15”, and 17” HP- HP Envy 14t
  • Lenevo – ThinkPad notebooks X1 Carbon, X230, L430, L530, T430s, T430, T530, W530
  • Microsoft Surface tablet devices

Now the question comes to compatibility, which means whether external devices have Mini DisplayPort or not. If yes, there will be no problem. But, in case the external device has other standard display connecting port (VGA port , DVI port and HDMI port), we will have to buy display adapters ( Mini DisplayPort to VGA, Mini DisplayPort to HDMI or Mini DisplayPort to DVI) as per the requirement.

Samsung Loses Battle, Apple Gets Over 1 Billion Dollar In Patent Suit

After several trials and adjournments, Today US Court ordered Samsung to pay $1.05 billion damages, after ruling that the South Korean firm infringed on some Apple patents in patent infringement trial between Samsung and Apple. Today Jury concluded that Samsung stole the technology from iPad and Iphone.

Earlier Apple claimed that Samsung has copied its design and technology by infringing its six or seven patents (381 patent, 915 patent, 163 patent, etc) in Android Phone line. Last week Judge Lucy Koh and Jury said that Samsung and Apple both destroyed the proofs. In another trial, a South Korean court blamed both the companies, ordering Samsung to stop selling 10 products including its Galaxy S II phone and banning Apple from selling its four different products.

After Court’s Decision the Samsung PR team said that

“Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.”

On the other side Apple PR Head said:

We are grateful to the jury for their service and for investing the time to listen to our story and we were thrilled to be able to finally tell it. The mountain of evidence presented during the trail showed that Samsung’s copying went far deeper than even we knew. The lawsuits between Apple and Samsung were about much more than patents or money. They were about values. At Apple, we value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. We make these products to delight our customers, not for our competitors to flagrantly copy. We applaud the court for finding Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right.

Samsung has been ordered to pay Apple $1.05 billion but this is not the actual loss as Samsung has to pull out all infringed smartphones from US market which would cost them much more than this.

Earlier Bloomberg reported that Apple and Samsung combined, make up for more than half of global smartphone sales. About 22.7 million smartphones and tablets have been sold by Samsung. So now it means the overall sales will also get reduced!

So guys this means that the verdict is a blow to Android as much as Samsung. So now we gonna have fewer phone options?

For me I can this is truly wrong, I will also say this whole patent system truly wrong in US and several other countries. Samsung also replied to the patent system by saying

Unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners.

Thank God it’s not in India.

According to me, now let Samsung stop supplying Apple the chips & microprocessors that run iPhones!!
