Re: Need a new computer!

Too many factors to give a simple "this or that" answer.

Most of your data usage depends on what you're doing on your computer and how you're doing it, and not what type of OS.

Re: Need a new computer!

You are not limited to just those options either.

I have switched two of my computers over to Linux Mint 17.3 with good results.

Hello Chuck,

I wish the answer was simple. Like others have mentioned it bogs down to your browsing, and day to day habits. Each OS offers about the same features and services. How you use them will be the biggest determining factor. If you provide us with info on what your main use of a computer will be, we can give you recommendations on how to best manage on any device you choose. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you,

Hi Chuck,

IMPE OS X uses significantly less data including backup to iCloud than Windows does.
That being said, All the answers above about browsing use/habits are correct.
