About This Brand

Apple computers usually cost more than similarly configured Windows-based systems. Apple computers use Mac OS X as their operating system, which had fewer problems with viruses and other malware. Macs can also run Windows in a virtual setting. The company primarily offers several consumer lines, the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air (laptops), the iMac (all-in-one desktops), and the Mac mini (a small, budget desktop). The Mac Pro desktop is its professional line. Apple's free telephone tech support is limited to three months, but you can get unlimited free support at the Genius Bar in Apple stores.

It's all about the operating system
Easy To Use
Good Battery Life
Best Uses
It's all about integrating the hardware with operating system and application software. As a former user of Windows (for over 30 years!), my sons-in-law turned me on to Apple products about 8 years ago. I have never looked back. <br /><br />The down side is that all Apple Products are expensive, compared to their competitors, but the upside is that the tight, intuitive integration of software and hardware commands a price premium, which, in my late stage in life, I am happy to pay. <br /><br />I also am happy to have a substantial holding (by my standards, at least) in Apple Stock, which means that the amount of money I have invested in its products come back to me, at least a bit, in both dividends and capital gains.<br /><br />Steve Jobs lives on!
