23 Aug Back to School: PC or Mac ?

  This is a common question we get asked by many of you. Since it's back to school time, let's focus on what makes them so special.

Manufacturers such as HP, Dell, Acer, Sony, and more produce these desktop and laptop computers for use with Microsoft Windows. Windows is what most of us are familiar with.
