Video: 1984 Mac vs. 2007 PC with Better Specs

Mac vs. PC: The PC has better specs on paper, therefore it’s better, isn’t it?

  • 2007 PC vs. 1984 Mac
  • 1.73 GHz vs. 8 Mhz
  • 2 GB vs. 128 KB
  • SATA vs Floppy
  • 32 Bit vs. 16 Bit
  • OS on HD vs. OS on floppy and in ROM
  • Still loading vs. Ready

The benchmark showing “what sucks on today’s PCs.” Does it have something to do with bloatware known as Windows?

iPad vs. PC / Android Tablet

In related news, recent tests showed that the new iPad is faster than Xoom, the Android tablet with nominally “better” specs and PC-like performance.

    To be fair, I have a feeling that the old Mac, which was also the exact same as my very first Mac, could also probably repeat the above if you also pitted it against a new brand new Mac when it came to boot-up times. Maybe the new SSD MacBook Airs would be it, I don’t know?

    The reason, is of course, that the old Mac’s OS only comprised about a whopping 184k of memory!

    Boy, oh boy, how times have changed!
