Computers For Students

     Being a full time student I am always using computers for one thing or another.

It has been my experience that the IBM compatible PCs have a wide range of
software programs. These programs range from high tech 3D simulation games to
integrated word processors, financial and life management systems to elaborate
encyclopedias. IBM compatible computers are easy to use and are continually
becoming even more "user friendly" every year. They are found at any school
or government establishment, and most businesses throughout the country and
around the world. PCs have a proven reputation for being upgradable, reliable,
and common machines. Because of these reasons and because I learned all my
computer skills on IBM compatible machines I would have to say that for myself
IBM and IBM compatible computers would be the best choice.

However, that is not to say that the Apple Macintosh is inferior in any way. In fact the Macintosh is
many times considered a better piece of equipment for such applications as
graphic arts. Like the IBM compatibles it is also found in different businesses
and schools around the world. The only drawback to the Macintosh would be the
lack of some of the more popular software that is usually released for PCs
first.
