If you are thinking about getting a new computer and you are considering getting a Mac instead of a Windows computer, here are some things you should be aware of.
Macs are very good computers, but using them is quite a bit different from using a Windows PC. I’m not saying one is better than the other, just that they are different. So if you are used to Windows, there’s going to be a learning curve as you learn to use a Mac just like if you were used to a Mac, moving to a Windows PC would present a learning curve as well.
Windows software won’t on a Mac unless you run it under a Windows emulator. Not all Windows software can be run under an emulator called Boot Camp. Running under an emulator is slower than running a program native to the Mac. For that reason, you may need/want to purchase Mac versions of your software. I’m referring to software like Quicken, Quickbooks, Office (Word, Excel, etc.), card games, or any other software that you run on your current Windows PC.
Despite what you may have read, Macs are vulnerable to infection. So you will need to make sure you install a good anti-virus/anti-spyware security program.
Macs cost a little more to purchase and they also cost a little more to repair.
Before purchasing a mac, check printers, scanners, phones, or any devices you connect to your computer to make sure they are compatible with the Mac.
