Bud, I'm not sure you'd go wrong with either... I've used both, gave away a 2i2 Scarlett and use PreSonus now for several years... Both good quality Interfaces.

The Scarlett is fine. Since COVID my company eased a good portion of my work as a recording engineer/sound designer for film and video home with me. They asked me for a list of gear and I built up a DAW for home. I spec'd the Scarlett 2i2 Gen3 because we had just installed five of them in video editing suites and the maintenance engineers spoke highly of them. The Scarlett was one of the easiest installations I've ever done and it has worked flawlessly ever since.

I've had a presonus for awhile and I had a Scarlett 2i2 Gen 2 but I can't find it, both work great on Mac, but you should check sweetwater reviews and if their drivers have windows issues, I would guess not.
