    This is my first post as I have just joined this website.
    I've always had PC's, but some of the things i do on them are just too slow.
    I am getting a Macbook pro tomorrow, and I am really excited!

    I was wondering what features does a mac have that is better than a PC?

    Congratulations!

    What I consider to be better on the Mac is just the overall ease of use (once you get past the learning curve) and its overall stability over Windows.

    Generally, I am in love with OS X and the trackpad. After using Apple hardware and OS X, it will be difficult to ever own a Windows computer again. What are the specs of the machine you bought?

    Apart from the build quality, OS X, battery life, better iDevice integration a some specific software packages(such as Final Cut), there really isn't anything a Mac can do that a PC can't.

    I chose a Mac because I prefer OS X in my daily workflow, in my opinion, a quality Mac laptop and a quality PC laptop(such as a nice high-end lenovo) are very comparable in terms of performance, and both OS X and Windows 7 are solid OS'es.

    It's a matter of personal preference, really.

    And a button on the side that tells you your battery life?

    So...you're spending money on a Macbook Pro, and you've not done this research before your purchase? :confused:

    I don't know how most people do it, but if I'm going to plop down big dollars for a computer, I'll figure out the "what's better" question first. :D

    All components are manufactured by the same producers, e.g. the display is made by LG or samsung, the CPU is intel, the GPU is AMD, hard drives are toshiba or samsung or hitachi, and so on.

    So yeah, nothing that's inherently better compared to a windows PC.
