For every person who is always asking and thinking about the various of the advantages that a Mac has, despite it’s over priced computers. One of the weird things that I have really seen with the people is they compare the Windows systems with the Macs that is all other brands such as HP and Sony which come into the scenario, but here I am going to turn out some of the facts that are really going to make you think in a completely different manner.
So for every person who thinks that the same hardware configuration is offered by HP in a laptop which costs around $500 and a Mac which may not have that level of hardware(in terms of RAM, Hard Disk space etc.) costs at least $999 should have a close look at the following stuff below. Here I would be mainly covering for both the users and professionals. This is how a Mac may be suitable to a lot of people from various of the professional backgrounds.
This includes both, the ones who work in the studio as well as the one who really make the songs. Some of these softwares till now are not available for any other operating system and are only there for the Mac.
# MOTU Digital Performer
A great software for music creation and is used by tons of people around the world. This provides a great place for MIDI editing and making sounds and music. So this may turn a great software for the electronic musicians or the musicians who make most of their music with the help of their computers/softwares.
# Logic Pro
Apples own software for the musicians and most of the people call this the best software for the ones who are using MIDI as a regular part of their songs. The best part in this is the simple interface one may ever imagine about and the library of sounds that is provided by Apple all royalty free and free of any other cost. Apart from all this even the users are free to modify various of the sounds and create loops for themselves or download ready-made ones.
A great software for all those who are new to sound editing or studio work. This software provides a great canvas for people to learn how to play and record and edit it literally the easiest manner ever. A person with no experience related with musical terms or any technical terms can also go ahead and make a fine tune. This software is based on the same software engine as of Logic pro but is a smaller version of it. Not to worry the files stored in this format can directly be opened in Logic if once the user decides to go ahead and use logic instead of Garageband. Also to note that Garageband comes free with every new Mac.
The best part that I always saw in these softwares was the simple interface that allowed every user to get into the software real quick. Apart from that the proper color combinations and the unique design that always gave a unique feeling to the person who is doing any sort of work with these softwares.
Now coming to all those people who have been using Windows Movie Maker or something of this sort. I would love to tell you what wonders Apple has been doing and can also help you do.
As usual Apple has done a great job for a movie editing program here and the best thing once again is that this is also attached with every Mac, that means you buy a new Mac you get this along with it. A great way the team at Apple who developed this showed it to the people when it was launched. If you haven’t seen it yet, then have a look and you would surely get an idea about how this amazing software does its work.
# Final Cut Pro
This is the bigger version of the software that is mentioned above. The bigger and the better form for all those who already know how to use the software above. Apart from all these, this software is well considered as the industry standard for movie editing.
Now finally making my move to the common people or users.
Now I would come up to the common users who are using computer for their day-to-day uses and how this software really makes a difference and helps them out with it.
# Cheaper Upgrades
Now not to mention about those people who get a free upgrade to every version of Windows because they are using a pirated version or something as such but when it comes to the Mac OS every new release is only for $30. Once you pay this you will get the download via the Mac App store easily. Another big thing, till the time a new version of Windows comes up succeeding the previous version Mac already has 3 big releases till then. Also the amount and number of updates one gets for Mac is highly more that the one people get for Windows(called service packs).
# Other OS Supported
As we can see in the computer segment til now I don’t find a lot of users to be using Linux(although it is amazing), but also for the ones who are using Linux, Windows doesn’t officially support Linux to run with it(Try run Ubuntu One in Windows and Windows Defender will block it). By saying this I don’t mean to say that you cannot do this but If you tweak around in a laptop in any way to run Linux along with Windows then you are simply playing with the warranty of your product which would lapse for sure. Apart from this, running a Mac OS is not only illegal but also a tough task for any one on any other machine other than a Mac(but its possible).
On the other hand if you have a look you will see that along with Mac OS you are legally permitted by Apple to run any other OS on the same Mac. So you may have Windows or any other Linux distro on you computer easily and not even play with the warranty of your machine. You can easily do this with the help of an app called Bootcamp that comes along every Mac.
# Simple Sync
Now one of the most popular smartphone in the world in the world is iPhone which is also developed by the same company as of the Mac so the best thing you will see here is the easy way it will get synchronized with your computer. should any other updates get released for either of these then it would come up to you in the form of an update and you obviously don’t need any driver to be installed on your computer to go ahead with . Also as the company has announced that their next release OS X Mountain Lion would be having various of the features of the iPad and would have an easy way as how users can synchronize with Twitter and various of the social sites.
So I think various people who have been having this question in their minds have got it cleared till a lot of extent. If any one thinks there is something I left out or something that is a big disadvantage in the Mac, I would encourage them to go ahead and mention that in the comments below.
Also this article is not against Windows users or any other computer manufacturer. All do a great job, and the target of this article was just to tell the users the best in the Mac.
