Most laptop users may be divided into two groups: “Windows supporters” and “Apple lovers,” and each fan group has its own reasons for using the computers they do.

Hence, if you plan to buy a laptop in the UAE or elsewhere, it is critical you first understand what differentiates MacBooks from Windows laptops. It’s difficult to recommend one of these laptops above the other since they both have unique qualities that make it impossible to make one single verdict.

We explain the differences between Windows laptops and Apple MacBooks so you can make an informed selection.

MacBook and Windows – 7 Main Differences

A MacBook and a Windows laptop vary in a variety of ways apart from the Operating Systems (OSs) inside. We’ll discuss each of them briefly below.

Design vs Variety

The most visible and immediate difference is in the design. Whether it’s an iPhone or a MacBook, Apple’s aesthetics have always captivated customers. This is undoubtedly the primary reason behind MacBook aficionados’ fascination with Apple goods.

Windows laptops, on the other hand, are available in a number of shapes and sizes. There are several varieties, ranging from business-focused to user-centric aesthetics. Even yet, if you put a

MacBook next to another laptop, it will stand out. It’s because, unlike MacBooks, which are only manufactured by Apple, Windows laptops are created by a range of manufacturers.

Yet, the presence of many manufacturers shows that there are various design options. You might acquire a laptop that suits your computing requirements.

Pricing and Hardware

A MacBook is often equipped with high-end, more expensive hardware components. MacBooks have faster processors and higher-quality components than Windows PCs. A MacBook frequently has more memory and storage than a regular laptop. There’s more to this than meets the eye, so this doesn’t necessarily mean Apple has won.

A Windows laptop may also deliver a similar level of power or more in terms of Processor, Memory, Storage, and Graphics. The most current Apple laptops, on the other hand, provide a conventional set of I/O ports. Windows laptops have more functionality, but you may select a laptop based on your needs. A laptop with HDMI, TV tuners, DVDs, and various connections is available in the UAE market and online places.

Limited vs Unlimited Apps

Apart from the operating system, one of the primary difference between a MacBook and a Windows laptop is the availability of programs. Whether it comes to apps for work or leisure, Windows laptops outperform its competitors. This is a crucial element in Apple laptop low sales in the UAE.

There are several Windows laptop apps available that may help businesses manage their workload. The majority of developers build their products to work with the Windows operating system in order to access a broader market. Despite its agreement with Microsoft to deliver Office Suite to its users, Apple laptops remains at the rear of the pack.

Similarly, when Windows laptops grow more popular, game makers produce games for them. MacBooks are already under threat as Windows laptops become more popular. Yet, after comparing pricing, large corporations choose laptops over Macs due to software availability.

Customer Care and Satisfaction

The final thing that sticks out and has the biggest effect is the degree of customer satisfaction. When it comes to personal tastes, the debate gets heated. Each Apple and Windows laptop has distinct characteristics that influence the user.

When you consider the low price, spec combination, and model availability, Windows laptops stand out. You may also be able to get great laptop bargains. A MacBook, on the other hand, ensures longevity, a sleek design, and an exceptional user experience. A MacBook also provides significantly superior customer service than a laptop.

Custom-made vs Third Party Internals

While deciding between MacBooks and Windows versions, evaluate how much computing power you want from your laptop. ARM CPUs, which are utilized in MacBooks, are improving. They may integrate computing and graphics on a single, tiny chip, allowing devices to have exceptionally long battery lifetimes. The fans will hardly even be heard when they begin to spin up.

Windows, on the other hand, often employs Nvidia or AMD graphics cards as well as Intel or AMD processors. Since the fans are continually on, there is a higher power consumption and hence a shorter battery life. Although the x86 architecture allows you to play more games and download more apps, it also allows you to be more versatile. Nevertheless, since many Windows laptops are now using ARM processors, the discrepancy in this market isn’t as big as it once was.

While Windows laptops have easier access to high-end graphics, both MacBook and Windows laptops provide excellent computational power and can perform almost similar tasks.

Open vs Close Ecosystem

On Windows laptops third-party software such as email, calendars, note-taking, and reminders is readily accessible. Apple’s MacBook lineup remains limited. Notes and Reminders have gone a long way and they still lack many of the capabilities seen in third-party applications. Apple Mail is horrible, notwithstanding the few improvements made since MacOS Vista.

MacBooks operate best when used in an Apple environment. Using an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, or any other Apple gadget with a Laptop is a joy. And here Apple environment has a disadvantage. You are compelled to stick to Apple’s limited vision of what an ecosystem should be. The website has not much to offer.

Whereas, Windows laptops are significantly more open. You can utilize many of the same functions on a Windows laptop as you would on a MacBook, such as chatting and file transfers. Samsung phones, in particular, work well with Windows.

Microsoft has several fantastic first-party applications. OneNote is a powerhouse that has the potential to be one of the best productivity tools ever developed. The fact that every Microsoft app is available on all platforms is the best feature.

Windows – The Choice of Gamers

Gaming is the last area where a Windows laptop outperforms what Apple has to offer. Gaming on a Mac is not as fun as it is on a Windows laptop. Absolutely, MacBooks have access to a large number of titles. Cloud gaming is supported by Game Pass Ultimate, Stadia, and GeForce Now. But you will not have access to every function, degree of smoothness, or offline capabilities.

The Windows environment outperforms the Apple ecosystem. Nevertheless, in the real world, Apple is confined and reliant on Apple-only goods. It’s more like a well-kept garden than a diversified landscape.

In contrast, Windows wonderfully captures the concept of an ecosystem. Although some individuals prefer a more controlled environment, the truth remains that a Windows laptop provides access to more devices and programs than a MacBook.

Take Away

MacBooks are exceptional due to their high-quality build and UNIX-based macOS operating system. Windows laptops, however, dominate the laptop users’ landscape in the UAE as well as around the globe because of design and pricing options.

An Apple MacBook is a better option than a Windows laptop but then you have limited peripherals, software, and gaming possibilities in exchange for a refined, visually pleasant computing experience.

Everyone else must get a Windows-based laptop. You will have significantly more flexibility in how you utilize the tool. If you have an Android phone, you should not even consider a MacBook. Moreover, players have no choice. Windows is their only choice.
