A Windows OS vs Snow Leopard benchmarks are in. Prepare not to be surprised

Oct 16th, 2009 | By | Category: Technology

Just caught this story on Cnet and thought I’d share.  Benchmarks of Windows 7 Vs Snow Leopard are coming in and the results are pretty much what you’d expect them to be.  Windows trumps the show with 3D stuff and Gaming, Snow Leopard takes the cake with Multitasking, encoding and boot times, as well as Battery life.

The entire article can be found here: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-31012_7-10319612-10355804.html and here are some of the highlights:

The conclusion? First all of all, you’ll get much better battery life running OS X on Mac laptops than running Windows. Secondly, performance-wise, Windows 7 is probably a better choice if you are a gamer (there are more games developed for Windows, anyway), even on Mac hardware.

Third, if you can get by with just software designed by Apple and if money is not a big issue, you will be happy with a Mac. Examples of these software choices are iTunes, iLife, QuickTime, Safari, iChat, and so on (and you probably won’t need much more than those for daily entertainment and communication needs). Finally, if money is not an issue–and it definitely is for most of us–you should get a Mac anyway. It’s the only platform, for now, that can run both Windows and OS X.
