Mac vs PC, Who really Cares? Well That Is Debatable.

Column Five Media created an infographic for Tech Hunch that shows the differences between Mac people and PC people. I know, like me this is one of those things you thought died a while ago, but apparently it hasn’t. Although I think you could simply swap Mac for iOS, and PC for Android, and this would feel like a fresh debate.

This is a follow up to a study Hunch did in November of 2009 where they explored the differences in personality, aesthetic tastes, and media preferences between Mac and PC users.The original 2009 study was based on findings from 76,000 respondents, vs this years 400,000. A lot has changed since the first study was done. Apple has launched the iPad and iPad 2, iPhone 4 for more than one single carrier, an updated Apple TV, and redesigned iPods.

The infographic is fun, but there is real world information here. If you would like to see all of the results beyond this fancy image, click here.

Oh and just for the record, and to pour some more fuel on the fire. PC means “Personal Computer” a “Mac” is a PC, so really this debate should be Mac vs Every Other OS in the World, or Mac vs Microsoft Windows. The “PC” term gets me as much as people that can’t pronounce nuclear, oncologist, supposedly, or karaoke correctly.
