Hodgeman Versus Long: AutoCAD for Windows Versus AutoCAD for Mac® Technology Showdown
Collapse Expand


After a 17-year hiatus, AutoCAD for Mac software returned in 2010. Since its initial offering, Autodesk has improved stability and reliability and has added numerous features in every release. But what is different? Can it do everything the PC version can do? Can it do anything better? This direct, objective comparison of the 2 products looks at both the similarities and differences between both offerings and hopefully puts to rest some misconceptions about them. We also venture ever-so-slightly into a comparison of the general operating system features for those who are looking to either switch or set up their first office.
