Ever since the computer was created, the debate between Windows and Mac continues to live on in each and every Windows and Mac user. No question, both operating systems lead the race when it comes to being two of the most used and most popular OSes out there. Both again have their own key advantages over the other. However, if you’re stuck right in the middle of the rut and you simply can’t decide whether you’d go for the configurable Windows or productivity-first Mac, why not choose both and experience both the best of both worlds. Yes, through Synergy, Windows and Mac one-two punch is right in your palm.
The short answer on that long debate is that – Windows is for gaming and Mac is for productivity. But having them both functioning consistently and in harmony is hard to accomplish until Synergy came. Synergy allows the user, or in this case, Achoo01, to simply copy/paste, drag/drop files from one Windows screen to another Mac screen. As if there’s no OS boundary at all. Now that’s done and out of the way, let’s proceed to hardware porn. The Windows setup features Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor that’s being taken full advantage by the Zotac – GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB AMP! Video Card in 2-way SLI setup.
Cooling both GPUs might be a problem here except that it’s not with the presence of two Air Series AF140 LED Blue Quiet Edition High Airflow 140mm Fan inside the Corsair Air 540 ATX Mid Tower Case. Gaming is the focus here with the Asus ROG SWIFT PG278Q 27.0″ 2560×1440 144Hz Monitor in place along with another wide monitor for extra screen real-estate. For the Mac setup, of course, you have the Macbook attached on a laptop stand. All that, of course, while placed on a DIY desk, made and crafted by none other than Achoo01 himself. And that my friend is how you connect Windows and Mac powered by Synergy.
