What Makes MacOS superior?
MacOS as the operating system that runs any Mac products has been far more sophisticated than any other operating system. It is because of the ease it offers to the user. To know what kind of ease it offers, the following discussion might help you.
- No Manual Shortcut
Compared to the Windows when people need to customize what they like and put it on the desktop as their shortcut, MacOS doesn’t require such thing. Your favorite or most visited programs will set up in the desktop automatically.
As the time goes by, your MacOS will remember your preference and it makes you easier to operate any programs when your computer and you become a good working partner that knows you well and can tell you what you like and what you don’t.
- Security System
Virus intrusion hardly happens in MacOS as it has a top-notch security that absolutely distinguishes the other operating systems. Although the era has changed and virus traffic can be undeniably high, the defense brought by Mac has covered you from those. Nevertheless, the chance of getting infected is still there if you’re not careful enough in clicking the bait of the virus while browsing some sites. The role of the user presumably determines the security defense against the malware probability.
- The Built-in Programs
Mac offers a bunch of built-in programs that you still can customize. As the first statement at the beginning, you can also install Windows on Mac as you like since it is possible. It brings the exclusiveness in its software packages that already cover what you need from a computer including iTunes, iMovie, Garageband, Keynote, Maps, Pages, Photos, Numbers and so on.
Doesn’t Mean MacOS is Flawless
Within all the superiority that has just stated, MacOS has got its flaws as well. Despite the strength, durability, and defense that cover almost all of the works which it even can cooperate well with the user, MacOS has got its flaws in some ways just the same as other operating systems.
- The High Price
The most noticeable value of a Mac is its fantastic price. The Apple fans will surely claim that it is appropriate to have such high price considering the quality it offers to the user. And indeed, it is right. The high-end hardware and software of Mac have got no competitors since its only Mac that has got MacOS. This giant incorporated will never let any product meddle in any of its components. In other words, it is exclusive. Only the ones who dare to pay will have it.
- It isn’t for Gamers
As its presence aims for the executive ones, gaming doesn’t count in MacOS. There are certainly some games that are compatible with Mac, but it will not work as good as it works on Windows. Some games require a hardware upgrading and it only likely happens on Windows since it is way impossible to upgrade the Mac hardware.

- Way Much Cheaper
