Consumer reports goes on the record to voice its opinions on the Mac versus PC debate

Consumer Reports has beaten the hornets’ nest, releasing its own opinions on the Mac vs. PC debate in its latest consumer computer survey.  In the survey, the research firm overwhelming gave Macs better scores than PCs.  However, it also noted that the Macs cost three to four times the price of a PC.  The results, interestingly, play into both companies' current advertising campaigns.

The publication purchased most of its computers at Best Buy.  Its top picks were all Apples -- with MacBooks holding the top spot in the lightweight, 14-inch, 16-inch, and 17-inch categories.  In the lightweight category, the MacBook Air took top honors, scoring 60/100, with HP's dv3-1075us in second with 55/100.  The HP system, though, was priced at $850 USD, while the MacBook Air retailed at $2,300 USD....   [DailyTech...]    [Comments...]
