Why you should buy Apple MacBook
Apple MacBook is simply the best Laptop ever made. It boots in less than 10 seconds, no lag while opening apps. Experience is even more awesome because of multitouch. It still feels solid. Here is main reasons you may go for Apple MacBook to buy-
- Build Quality – Awesome, go use, hold, feel, look at any of Apple’s current offerings for laptops. Its softness and premium feeling overwhelmed you. Check out brands like HP, Dell, etc. The build quality is completely different, they’re not even in the same ballpark. All of the mainstream PC manufacturers use copious amounts of plastic in their builds. Apple uses aluminum and glass, which feel significantly more substantial. Also, their “unibody” construction just helps the machine feel significantly sturdier.
- MagSafe power adapter, I haven’t seen this replicated in the Windows laptop world yet.
- The trackpad. Always imitated, never cloned. It’s good enough that I even use a stand-alone magic trackpad at my desk. It’s smooth, responsive, and the gestures that you get are phenomenal.
- Superior displays. Today’s MacBook Pros and iMacs, have very, very good displays. If you do graphics work this is a very important consideration. Mac is the industry standard platform in the graphics design industry.
- Performance: It has rock solid performance. You click on Chrome and it opens up. you’re going to be hard pressed to find a more powerful laptop. It has the most remarkable ways of managing memory and other system resources. It looks beautiful and the design of everything from the hardware to the software is a pleasure to work with.
- Cost: Macs are actually cheaper in the long run: You can buy a Windows PC for fewer up-front dollars. But the true cost of ownership should be calculated based on not only the acquisition cost, but the residual value after you sell it or trade it in. It’s the difference between those two numbers that really tells you what your computer costs to own. When you calculate the cost of ownership in that way, Macs win easily. All you have to do is compare the value of a Windows PC from, say, three years ago (which is often close to zero), and compare that to what you can get for your 3-year-old Mac. It’s virtually always no contest.
- Boot time – The Lenovo ThinkPad took anywhere between couple of minutes to five minutes to boot up. The Mac hardly takes a minute to boot up.
- Degradation/Sluggishness – Mac has slowed down a bit since the first use then over the years but then nowhere near the sluggishness of a Windows laptop; however, Apple does optimize Mac OS to run smoothly on handful of devices whereas Microsoft cannot afford to optimize for the million models of laptops running Windows.
- Viruses: While this has changed just a little as Apple has gained ground on Microsoft, Mac users are still living in relative bliss with the lack of viruses, spyware and malware. We’re not saying they can’t get them, but it’s just far less of a problem for Mac users than it is for Windows users.
- Time Machine and the Cloud: Not nearly enough people back up their hard drives (because it should be everyone), but Apple’s Time Machine makes it so elegant and simple that all you really need to do is hook up a drive and turn Time Machine on. And it’s not just a back-up, but you can go back in time to find a document you deleted. Apple is further assisting with backing up with the utilization of iCloud, something especially appreciated in this age of people using multiple devices, such as the iPhone and iPad.
- You can run Windows on a Mac anyway, so why not get the best of both worlds?
- Free OS updates – Mac OS updates will be free and reach the machine for sure whereas with Windows your laptop might have to pay for the update (Windows 10 was free only if the laptop had Windows 7; others had to pay) at the risk of making your machine sluggish.
- XCode – if you want to develop iOS apps there is no other option
