Mac vs PC People

Mac users are more politically liberal, more urban, younger and more educated than their PC-using counterparts.

That is according to a new survey by affinity aggregator Hunch. Among the more interesting findings:

• 58% of Mac people are “liberal,” as compared to 38% of PC people

• 67% of Mac people have completed a four-year college degree or higher, as compared to just 54% of PC people

• 52% of Mac people live in a city, while PC people are 18% more likely than Mac people to live in the suburbs and 21 percent live in rural areas

• Mac people throw a lot more parties than PC people

• Mac people are more confident about their verbal abilities but less confident about their math abilities than PC people

• Mac people are more likely to see random people as “similar,” whereas PC people are more likely to see them as “different”.

There is a great infographic on this, from Hunch and Column Five:
