Why buy an Apple MacBook?
There are so many manufacturers of laptops out there who boast about the wide range of bells and whistles that come with their machines. Speed and size, charge-time and power, there's such a huge variation in option and quality that it's almost impossible to know whether you are getting the right, or best, deal.
That's what makes an Apple MacBook so special.
When it comes to a Mac laptop, quality and user experience are the forefront of their design philosophy. Apple is known for creating superior, high-tech computers, and an Apple MacBook is no exception. All MacBooks come with a suite of exclusive apple programs and apps that are easy to master while being a professional's dream. You can store all your music in one place with iTunes and easily manage your photos with the Photos app, all with the Apple Store being just a click away.
But the best part about buying a MacBook is that much of the software and apps that come as standard on Apple MacBooks often have to be purchased separately with a standard Windows laptop or PC.
The cutting-edge technology in an Apple laptop is designed to help you be more productive whilst enjoying the experience of working on top-of-the-range tech. Every single MacBook is a high-performance model, each being faster, quieter, and far more efficient than any PC laptop out there.
How many types of Apple laptop computer are there?
While MacBook is typically the catch-all term for Apple laptops, there are in fact 3 main types of Apple laptop - the slender MacBook Air, standard MacBook, and mighty MacBook Pro:.
Apple MacBook Air
A MacBook Air is the most affordable Apple laptop in their range. Sporting a 13-inch screen and an advanced multi-touch trackpad, the MacBook Air might be small, but it's more than capable of outshining most high-end laptops on the market and running strenuous, RAM devouring apps. Its processor capability can be placed somewhere between the superbly powerful MacBook Pro, and the perfectly capable standard MacBook; and while it has a less powerful Turbo Boost than the other models (3.2GHz), it comes packing 512GB of storage with upwards of 12 hours of battery life. For creatives on the go, there's not a lot that can beat a MacBook Air.
The classic Apple Mac laptop comes in a variety of specifications that can be suitably tailored to your fancy. Options include choosing which processor you'd like to run, spanning the m3, i5, or even the i7, as well as letting you make the most of the 3.6GHz Turbo Boost; a subtle piece of Apple laptop technology that grants increased performance and reduced power usage by switching off unused processor cores.
This Apple laptop computer is also decked out with the classic Apple Force Touch track pad, and with the option to customise its colour, you can truly personalise your laptop. Apple has created a super versatile, super-capable laptop with the standard MacBook, and its price makes it more than worth the investment.
Apple MacBook Pro
The ultimate display of power when it comes to an Apple MacBook, the MacBook Pro comes in three different, highly tuned specifications. Each option lets you choose your processor and screen size, as well as plenty of other nifty little features such as Touch Bar and Touch ID, allowing you took take the most powerful Mac laptop Apple has to offer and make it your own.
If you want an Apple laptop computer capable of running the very best in creative editing software, then donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t settle for anything less than a MacBook Pro.
Apple and viruses
Where a Mac laptop really outshines the competition, however, is in its resilience to much of the malware and viruses floating around out there. Apple has much less of a problem when it comes to viruses, compared to PC laptops, as the majority of viruses simply aren't tailored to target Apple laptops. This, and Apple is constantly updating its security features on a regular basis to stay one step ahead of modern malware.
Can you run Windows on a mac?
Yes, you can. A MacBook laptop can have Windows installed via a program called Boot Camp or a third-party program such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion, or VirtualBox. This means that a MacBook laptop is capable of giving you access to virtually any software you want - including the much-loved Word, Excel and PowerPoint programs.
