Hunch.com offers a great visual snapshot of Mac users and their PC
counterparts over on the site’s blog Thursday
. The personalized recommendation engine collected data from its users to paint a picture of the average Mac and PC
person, and at least a good portion of the results are pretty much in keeping with prevailing stereotypes.
The infographic takes users who responded to the question “Are You a Mac Person or a PC Person?” and cross-references those responses with the answers from other questions taken from the question pool the site uses to inform its intelligent recommendations engine. Some key highlights:
- Mac users are more likely to be young liberals who live in cities
- Mac users are bigger partiers than PC users
- Mac users are more likely to see themselves as unique, but also to see others as alike
- PC users watch a lot of Leno, while Mac users like critical hits like Friday Night Lights
