    Yes. And it also depends on needs:

    Strengths:

    Android os - openness of oS, larger screens
    Apple iOS - elegance/best GUI, less fragmentation in product line, cohesion of whole "i" Life.
    PC's - more business software
    Macs - more --- coolness --, better graphics and music software written for OS
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    While I disagree ( as does the graphic designer at my clinic does ) that Macs have better graphics, I know of more than a few desktop and laptop models that can be had with much better and more powerful processors and graphics than any mac, I think you are more balanced than most on here

    Thanks.. But I didn't say anything about 'the graphics look' of a PC versus Mac. That's all a function of the graphics card you install. Read my post again.. It said 'Graphics SOFTWARES'.. The best software graphics software in the world is a Mac product. All pro houses use it.

    OK I'll bite, by far what I know most use around me is Adobe software ( is it owned by Apple?) What is the name of the Apple design product you speak of because I could not find this popular software in the first page or two of google when I asked best Apple design software? I would like to know to be informed please.

    The couple of graphics guys I have delt with and also my son, all use PC's and Adobe at the moment I should inform them as well.

    Obviously PhotoShop is the top graphics software in the biz. It was only released for PC about 5 years ago.. Still runs way better and more intuitively on a MAC. Mac was its only platform for more than 15 years. Again - for obvious reasons.

    But this debate is an old and tired one.

    Still my main point stands.. You choose OS based on what each does best. And sometimes on price.

    Let me first state that I am entrenched in the Apple Eco system with an iphone 5S, an Ipad, Macbook pro and a Mac mini. However, one has to be realistic about what is happening with market share in the smartphone market. All the facts state that Android is growing and IOS is shrinking. The attached article for example show that over 80 percent of phones sold last quarter were Android, Apple share was only 12 percent. There is a lot of information out there confirming this.

    Apple Shares Slip After News of Smartphone Market Share | Wall St. Cheat Sheet

    This is a worldwide view not a US view and is from Gartner a well respected research firm.

    Apple share of the Tablet market is also being continuously eroded it has dropped from over 80 percent to about 50 percent in a very short time. This is not surprising with the large number of Cheap tablets coming onto the market recently.

    There is a place for both Android and Apple in the future and the competition will hopefully keep Apple focused.

    Photoshop 1.0 came out 23 years ago, for Mac only. 2 years later it was released for Windows.

    and my mother owns my i5 but she hates iOS7. xD
    That can be cleared up with a different launcher and getting disabling double tap to bring up S-Voice.
