Which one is better?

Due to the information we have on RAM, we think that the Dell Inspiron would be a better choice to buy. We chose the Dell Inspiron because there are more RAM options to purchase, and they are way less money. Dell offers 8,12, and 16 GB while Mac only offers 8 GB and 16 GB. The highest price for a Dell Inspiron would be $999.99. The highest price for a Mac would be $1,999.99. Some people cant afford that. This is why we chose the Dell Inspiron.
