With every major purchase, doing some research on the company and products is an essential step to take before pulling out your wallet.
So, when it comes to Macs, what should you know?
A Brief History
Should you get a Mac desktop or laptop?
Currently, for desktops, Apple only offers the all-in-one iMac. You can choose from two sizes – the 21.5” and 27”. They each come with 4k to 5k retina displays. They are both sleekly designed, measuring only 5 mm at the edge. Even with slim aesthetics, they are packed with powerful features, from lightning-fast storage with Fusion Drive to a 4.0 GHz i7 processor.
If you would like to choose a cheaper monitor and purchase a separate computer, you can choose a Mac Pro or Mac Mini. You can choose from a quad or 6-core, 3.5GHz or 3.7GHz processor with the Mac Pro or the compact Mac Mini with a dual-core, 1.4 to 2.8GHz processor.
You definitely have more variety with Macbooks. Whether you’re looking for portability or power, you can find either one of these features and more with these computers.
Mac’s current operating system is OS X El Capitan (the name inspired by Yosemite National Park.) This system comes with just the right amount of personalization, allowing you to do anything from edit photos to perfection, surf the web smartly with customizable Pinned Sites, create Notes with photos, checklists, & font styles, and plenty more.
And there you have it.
Before buying a Mac, take the time to understand the history and how far these computers have come, and then weigh out what is most important to you – portability, power, or simplicity.
