(Reuters) - Orbitz Worldwide Inc has found that people who use Apple Inc's Mac computers spend as much as 30 percent more per night on hotels, so the online travel agency is starting to show them different, and sometimes costlier, travel options than Windows visitors see, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

Orbitz executives said the online travel agency is experimenting with showing different hotel offers to Mac and PC visitors, but said the company isn't showing the same room to different users at different prices, the Journal reported. They also pointed out that users can opt to rank results by price.

Mac users are 40 percent more likely to book a four or five-star hotel than PC users and when Mac and PC users book the same hotel, Mac users tend to stay in more expensive rooms, the Journal reported.

In addition to the Orbitz website, the company owns other travel sites, including CheapTickets, ebookers, HotelClub and RatesToGo.

Apple and Orbitz officials could not be reached for comment outside of regular business hours.

Check out some of the new features Mac OS X Mountain Lion will bring to users when it becomes available in July.

  • Mountain Lion Messages

    iPhone users can respond directly on their Mac to messages received on their phone. The feature not only enables Mac-to-Mac and Mac-to-device messaging, but also saves the complete message history. (<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/11/apple-wwdc-2012-liveblog/" target="_hplink">Image via <em>Engadget</em></a>)

  • Mountain Lion Notification Center

    "Sometimes when you're using a Mac it can have something it needs to tell you," Federighi said <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/11/apple-wwdc-2012-liveblog/" target="_hplink">during WWDC 2012</a>. Similar to notifications on the iPhone or iPad, Mac users will receive instant alerts and notifications in the upper-right hand corner of the screen. However, oftentimes these notifications can be disruptive. With Mountain Lion, these messages will slide in and users can navigate back to the full list using two-finger gesture control. Users can also enable Internet notifications from websites like Twitter to pop-up in this fashion.

  • Mountain Lion Sharing

    Support for sharing is built directly into the operating system so users can authorize specific apps and programs in order to seamlessly access and connect to social media services and networks. For example, in iPhoto, users can press the share button and instantly send a photo to a friend via Messages.

  • Mountain Lion Safari

    Among the Apple browser's newest features, the new unified smart search field received the most applause. Users will be able to type in their search inquiry and Safari will bring up the best result using bookmarks, browsing history and other data. Safari will also be iCloud-enabled so that browsing history, bookmarks and even open tabs will be automatically synced across all devices. A user could effectively switch from their Mac to their iPad, picking up their browser where they left off. Federighi demonstrated Safari's improved usability with multi-touch gesture control. Scrolling is smooth and lightning fast and users can visually navigate through all of their tabs with the swipe of a finger just like in iTunes.

  • Mountain Lion Dictation

    Although Mountain Lion will not have Siri -- not yet anyway -- the Mac OS is being revamped with its own voice dictation service. A user can talk directly into the microphone and Mountain Lion will dictate to Facebook, Microsoft Word or other third-party programs. (<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/11/apple-wwdc-2012-liveblog/" target="_hplink">Image via <em>Engadget</em></a>)

  • Mountain Lion Power Nap

    Siestas are often necessary during the day, but that usually means time away from our laptops is time wasted. With Power Nap, a user's Mac will automatically update itself, fetch emails and auto-sync while its offline, enabling users to sleep easy. The feature will run quietly in the background, and boasts power efficiency. "We all love using our Macs, but wouldn't it be great if when we weren't using them they were still working for us?" Federighi said. <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/11/apple-wwdc-2012-liveblog/" target="_hplink">during WWDC 2012</a>.

  • Mountain Lion Airplay Mirroring

    With this feature users will not be hindered by bulky cables when they want to push something from their laptop onto their TV screen. Airplay Mirroring enables users to wirelessly push pixel-for-pixel 1080p content from an Apple laptop with Mountain Lion, <a href="http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5209" target="_hplink">or another device</a>, to a screen via Apple TV. Airplay will not only be limited to visual devices. Users can effectively send audio from their laptop to their stereo system. "We also support sending audio to AirPlay-enabled stereo systems and speakers," Federighi said during WWDC 2012. (<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/11/apple-wwdc-2012-liveblog/" target="_hplink">Image via <em>Engadget</em></a>)

  • Mountain Lion Game Center

    The platform will appear the same on Apple laptops as it does on a user's mobile device. Federighi showed off his racing skills -- or lack there of -- in an on-stage CSR Racing demo against a <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1123502/The-Stig-s-unmasked-Top-Gear-use-FOUR-different-mystery-test-drivers.html" target="_hplink">Stig</a>-like racer (any Top Gear fans?) Using both Airplay and Game Center, multiple players can participate in a game whether they are on a Mac or a mobile device. (Photo credit: AP)
