Macs for Personal and Professional Use
If you are in the market for a new computer, it is hard to ignore the MacBook and MacBook Pro as top options. Apple’s line of high-performance computers are marketed heavily and bought frequently, and for good reason. The original MacBook Pro was unveiled in 2006 with a revolutionary screen, MagSafe power adapter, backlit keyboard, large trackpad, and unparalleled speed. Since then, Apple has worked hard to continue improving its core line of computers. Today, MacBooks are preferred by a wide range of personal and professional users who enjoy their sleek design, ease of use, high performance, and seamless compatibility with iPhones, iPads, and other Apple products.
The Mac operating system (macOS) offers a clean, straightforward approach to computing. The user interface is easy to use and similar to the interface found in the iPhone and iPad; so if you enjoy those products, chances are you will enjoy MacBooks as well. Another large advantage to macOS software is that it works effortlessly with MacBook hardware. While Windows computers are built by many different manufacturers, MacBooks are built exclusively by Apple, allowing for optimal collaboration between the software and hardware. Ultimately this makes Macs very efficient. From a security standpoint, macOS is less susceptible to viruses and malware that Windows computers. MacOS also makes purchasing and organizing apps a breeze with a centralized app drawer called the Launchpad
Like all other Apple products, MacBooks feature a simple, minimalistic design both on the outside and inside. From their slick outer shells to their user-friendly interfaces, Mac design connects to users from all around the world. Steve Jobs created an ideal that all Apple products should have high-quality designs that are built to last – an ideal that pushes forward long after his death. Apple fans are pleased to know that everything Apple creates is created with attention to detail.
On the outside, the MacBook and MacBook Pro are both encased in a shell cut from one brick of aluminum, which improves the rigidity of the entire exterior. They both feature the innovative Force Touch Trackpad, a new sensory-driven touchpad that allows you to command the machine like never before. Force sensors make it possible to perform a variety of different actions in different programs, all on the same surface. The trackpad also features the Taptic Engine, which allows you to not only see what’s happening on the screen, but to feel it through your fingertips. As always, the full-size keyboard boasts large, thin keys that are satisfying to press and easy to control. It features energy-efficient, precision backlighting that delivers a refined look while helping users work in lowlight settings.
On the inside, Macs continue to boast incredible user-friendly interfaces that make it easy to perform a multitude of tasks. Processing power is a plus as well, as the new MacBook Pro features a commanding Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, while the newest MacBook is available with either the Intel Core m3, m5, or m7 processors. If you need to run Windows, you can do so easily using Mac’s Boot Camp software.
