• Mac OSX vs. Windows – Web design video tutorials for beginners

    It has been 6 months since I picked up a MacBook Pro and I have been very impressed with this machine.

    To be fair, it isn’t perfect but it is the best computer I’ve ever used:

    For example:

    Every MacBook comes with a tiny webcam (iSight) built into its’ cover – no need to buy an external cam anymore. It is convenient to be sure, but how about the image quality?

    … To my surprise, the little webcam produces a better image quality than even top notch webcams from Logitech!

    How about 3rd party hardware?

    As is consistent with Mac OSX (in that things tend to work), when you plug in any piece of hardware, it seems to just work.

    At first it was a little strange to me, as I was expecting dialog boxes to pop up etc … as you have with Windows. But after a while you get used to it.


    OSX has an intelligent security system where it only prompts you for permission, if you are installing core components of the OS. Contrast this to Vista where even deleting shortcuts will require extra annoying clicks!


    I’ve had Mac OSX die on me twice in 6 months. Both times, it was problems related to having a few external devices connected, and me being very impatient, clicking a lot of buttons.

    … A simple restart, and OSX came back like nothing ever happened.

    With Windows, I find when you boot back up (after a crash), half the time, you have restart again because the OS will be .. shaky. It as though Windows needs another crack at cleaning itself up …?


    If you’ve never used Mac OS and are considering a new machine, I think it is time for you to consider.
