Windows or Mac

I am a windows guy through and through (Surface is my jam!) but I'm thinking about starting up a new business that would hinge on facetiming/zooming with tech support oversees.


What is your go to for something like this?


Mac is more user friendly but not sure if it translates overseas as well as it does here in the US.


Thanks in advance!

Not at all. The UI is slightly different but for the most part a web browser looks like a web browser

Oddly, I am both!

Prefer windows for work but mac for personal. If you're using Mac for work, you'd better hope your company are all in or it'll be workaround central

Honestly, I use both for different purposes.

Windows: Gaming and Work
Mac: Browsing and Video Editing

Really just comes down to what you want.

For work I prefer Mac, not because it is better but simply because it always just work. I have had Windows for work, and while it is a better OS for messing with your setup, I always end up having issues with getting it to do mundane things. When I'm doing presentations and demos for customers I just want something that I just plug in and it works and not having to deal with tech issues, and Mac is perfect for that... currently I have a MacBook Pro and I never have issues.

For personal use I have a Windows machine, as I fiddle around with the setup I want. Plus Mac is just too expensive and I don't want to spend my own funds on an overpriced Mac.

Mac is the best for a non technical guy like me.

I used Windows as well but for gaming and video (altho future M1 chips seem crazy) although sound card issues abound.

Our business uses Mac but the scalability price wise, becomes a challenge.
