Starting a business will, of course, require computers and mobile devices. If you have yet to decide between Mac and PC, consider the benefits of choosing Macs and other Apple products for your company and its employees.
User Interface Is Easier to Learn
Mac computers have user interfaces that are easier to learn and do not change much between versions, whereas Window computers typically change their interfaces quite a bit with each new release. An easy-to-use interface is essential for a company that relies heavily on computers to stay in business. Without one, the company would often spend time and money to re-train employees to use the systems as they updated.
Better Industry Standard Options
Mac computers are usually much more advanced than PCs even by today’s standards. Their screen size and clarity alone makes them preferable for editors and others who need creative programs. The computers’ industry-standard apps and programs for designing are more plentiful as well. Designers who use Macs have more choices in everything from editing software to the fonts they use.
Safer From Malware and Viruses
Macs are typically safer from malware and viruses than PCs are, largely in part because they are a smaller market and hackers prefer to target a larger one. In addition, a Mac’s operating system is based on Unix, which has built-in security features. Despite this, they aren’t completely immune to hacking, so you should still use a solid antivirus program and have a relationship with an Apple Premier Partner — a business specifically chosen by Apple to fix Mac products — in your list of contacts.
Excellent “Wow” Factor
Simply put, practically everybody has a PC. Because Macs are considered high end and tend to be rarer, customers and clients often have a preconceived notion about a company’s abilities if its employees use Apple products.
When deciding which Mac products to purchase for your business, consider what you’ll need them to be able to accomplish. It is also helpful either to build a relationship with someone who offers Apple Certified Tech Support or to become certified yourself.
