Survey Finds Nearly 25% of Windows Users Plan to Switch to Mac in the Next 6 Months

A recent survey conducted by Verto Analytics found that nearly 25% of current Windows users plan to switch to Mac within 6 months.

According to the results of the Verto Smart Poll, nearly all (98% or more) current Mac owners intend to stay with Macs as their next computer. However, nearly 21% of current Windows laptop owners and 25% of current Windows desktop owners responded that they intend to switch to a Mac within the next six months.

And of those current Windows owners, consumers in the upper income bracket (those with an average income of $150,000 or more) showed the highest likelihood of switching to a Mac: 20% of respondents intended to switch. Lower income groups (those making $20,000 or less annually) also report higher probability of switching to Mac: about 14% of these respondents intended to switch. However, a further drilldown shows that these lower income respondents are also in their teens or twenties, suggesting parental assistance.

Verto says the survey polled 6,000 current Windows PC owners age 18 and older in the United States.

I tried working on a PC a while ago. OMFG what a stinking pile of crap. So much for "cross platform software". If Apple would make a machine you could game with I'd take a hammer to my PC faster than it takes to crash, again.

What a lame comment! Macs use solid state drives which makes boot time in seconds. Maybe you live in a cave and never came out. It is 2017 now and PCs and Macs have SSDs. The cheap-o PCs still run on HDDs. And those are the slow computers you say. Not a Mac! The latest Macs ditched the HDD and uses SSDs and FusionDrives their own version of Hybrid Storage).
