5 Reasons Why the Time Is Right to Buy a Mac

The trend is starting to shift from the long dominant PC platform

If you are like the majority of the computer users in the world, you use a Windows PC at work and home. Sure, it has its problems. But what system doesn’t? You get your job done everyday. Your kids get their book reports written. And the gaming situation couldn’t be better. You can’t think of any reason why you should pick up a Mac. I can think of at least five:

The Mac is on the Rise

It’s not about picking winners and losers. It’s about… Oh… Who am I kidding? It absolutely is about picking winners and losers. And we all do it. We like to believe that we are on the winning team. In sheer numbers of units sold, that has always been the PC by an overwhelming margin. But that trend is starting to shift

By profitability, one has to look to Apple.  It is not just profit, but design. Whether or not you own a Mac, your recently purchased PC notebook was likely designed by Apple’s Jony Ive. The blatant copying was kicked off by HP with their Envy series. The entire ultrabook category was the PC industry reproducing the Macbook Air for Windows. Though all eyes are on the iPhone, the Mac is on the top of its game, while Windows is struggling. 

The Mac Is Mostly Safe from Viruses and Malware

The thing about viruses is they have to be specifically written for a particular platform. There are many good reasons why virus writers target Windows. But are there any viruses on the Mac? If there are, they would turn up on the Mac Virus website. When you examine that website, you don’t actually find viruses, but security vulnerabilities that could lead to viruses should someone decide to take advantage of them. On Windows, these vulnerabilities would lead to viruses. On the Mac, they generally do not.

The antivirus for Mac software providers, like Trend Micro, recognize the lack of virus proliferation, and craft their product so that it:

  • Blocks Dangerous Websites
  • Protects Your Privacy on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and LinkedIn
  • Provides Safe Surfing

These risks are common to all computing platforms. For these types of things, antivirus for Mac can be very useful. 

Your iDevices will Thank You

Back in 2010, it was reported that more than half of iPad users were also Windows users. Most likely, such high numbers were true for Android users, as Android tablets were not really around at that time, and never became popular when they finally hit the scene. 

That means that you might already have at least one Apple product. The iPod only went mainstream when Apple made it compatible with Windows. The same is true for the iPhone. There are simply not enough Mac users to account for the popularity of these products. 

They all work more seamlessly with a Mac. You can do things like Handoff and Continuity if you also have a Mac. You can take and place calls right from your computer. 

Macs Have Never Been More Affordable

The Mac mini starts at $499. You will need to bring your own monitor, keyboard, and mouse. While the ones you already have will work just fine, it is better if you just spring for the Apple variants. Almost any monitor will do. The world-beating Macbook Air starts at $899. You will have to pay at least that, if not more, for an equivalent Windows lappy. 

Nothing Resales Like a Mac

You’ve heard this trope many times. But it happens to be the Zeus-honest truth. A few days on eBay or Craig’s List will get you a significant portion of the original selling price. It is even more shocking when compared to how little one can get for a used PC. That means if you don’t love your new Mac experience, it doesn’t have to be a total loss. With what you get from selling it, you can buy a shiny, new PC.

Considering Windows 8, Microsoft just seems to be in a state of confusion right now, while Apple is hitting all the right notes. Use what you love. But if you have never tried a Mac, now’s the time.
