10 Top Reasons To Buy A Mac

Updated on December 26, 2009

Top 10 Reasons To Buy A Mac

Here are my top 10 reasons to buy a Mac laptop or desktop.


The first reason to buy a Mac is the ease of use.

Mac computers are created very user friendly. It is very easy for ANYONE to get used to using a Mac, wether you are a first time computer buyer or a computer pro Apple's products are very simple!

The operating system(Mac OS X) is very easy to configure and change.

Programs on a Mac are generally easier to use as well.


Next on the list is design.

Apple has continually created the sleekest looking computers available. From the iMac to the new Macbook, Apple's design has remained flawless compared to the competition.

The new Macbooks are absolutely beautiful!

It seems like every year Apple creates something that is 10 years ahead technologically!


Performance is my next reason.

Apple computers have always been known for their performance!

Even older model notebooks and desktops still run better than some newer models of other brands.

To this day I still use my iBook from 2002. It is current with the most up to date software and runs great!


Apple cares about the environment!

The new Macbooks are the "greenest" notebooks available!

Even my iBook gets great battery life, which means less batteries thrown into dumps! I get about 2.5 hours on a charge, can't say that for my old dell laptop or even my newer dell laptop!


Best bang for the buck!

Macs are packed with the best and newest technology available, not only this but they are built the best too!

As I already stated my 2002 iBook stills works great!

Apple uses the best parts for their computers, so they last!


Compared to other brands Apple is very affordable.

If I was going to purchase a new laptop or computer the new Macbook or Mac Mini would be my first choice.

The price for a new Mac may seem high, but look at other high-end laptops or desktops, Apple is extremely affordable.

If you don't want to fork out money for a new Mac, you can always get a used or rebuilt Mac.

Apple offers rebuilt Macs on their website for less. Or you can buy a used Mac for way less!

I bought my 2002 iBook for only about $200.00 and it's awesome! It's older, but updated and works perfectly! It's better than some brand new computers I've used!


Viruses, trojans, spyware don't worry about it!

"Macs can't get viruses!"

Well that's not completely true. However it is very unlikely to pickup a virus on a Mac.

I've had my iBook running without any virus protection for about 2 years now, and no problems! Try surfing the web unprotected with a PC!


Easily sync an iPod or iPhone.

I can easily sync my iPhone with my iBook. This helps me keep track of all my contacts, music, photos, videos, email and more!

You can easily connect your iPod or iPhone to a Mac and sync everything to keep organized!


Easily update ALL of your programs/software.

Your Mac computer will automatically look for updates for all your programs! When updates are available you simply click "update" and it does everything on it's own!

No longer do you have to search the web to see if all of your programs are up to date, Apple lets you know when it's time to update!

You Mac even lets you know when you have a software update for your iPod or iPhone!


The tenth and final reason to buy a Mac...
You get the best of everything, all in one!

You get the ease of use, with the easy to sync and the easy to update plus the best bang for your buck, and more all in the most environmentally friend computers available!

A Mac is great for anyone and everyone!

      I disagree with most of your points, having owned both a Mac and PC.

      1. Ease of use? sure, it was easy to use, but confusing from the perspective of a born and bred PC user.

      2. Design? probably the only decent pro about Macs.

      3. Performance? Ha. My sister's sh!tty netbook loads programs and website faster than both my old Mac and my father's new one. Not to mention if I want to do graphics work on it.

      4. Again, battery life isn't even that special either. I'm got a Dell Vostro which lasts 3 hours on full hardcore gaming speeds. 5 on power-saving.

      5. I can make a 3.3GHz desktop for less than a GHz laptop from Apple. That should tell you all you need.

      6. The latest Macbook Pro is $1200, nearly twice what I would pay for a decent desktop.

      7. Probably the only strong point, but who wants to hack a Mac?

      8, 9 and 10. Should not even be considered reasons, especially since my sister's free, crappy netbook can do them all.

      Its almost sad how you pump each of these ideas up as strong points, when they are just weak, pathetic attempts at convincing a hostile market.

      I have read nothing but goodness about macs. And anything so called 'bad' or negative about them, when you really think about it, isn't so bad at all. Quite the contrary. And quite frankly, I could care less if a pc 'can do all macs can do and more' as some say, pc's are a pain and more complicated then they should be and using pc programs aren't nearly as user friendly or even FUN to work with. Anyways my vote wholeheartedly remains with macs.

      highly doubt your pc looks half as nice as a mac, but that's not the issue an 800mhz mac will out perform a pc with much higher specs, damn that registry it'll be the downfall of bill

      Ah mate for every single point you've made pc's are comparable. Windows checks for updates for your software automatically. Windows 7 is designed to run on a pc with minimum specs for XP, which was released 9 years ago. You can spend as little as $700 for a full pc or if you want the bees knees you spend more but you have the ability to choose what kind of performance you need, rather than a one-suits-all solution. Also, with a mac if something goes wrong with the hardware you need to take it to Apple to get it fixed or you void the warranty. With a pc there are heaps of different brands for parts available all over the place (compared to one or two mac stores per city) and it will not void any warranties to fix it yourself because each part has a separate warranty. I understand why people like macs but you can do all of the same things with a pc plus heaps more. I don't want Stevey boy telling me what I can and can't install on my computer. That's why I jailbroke my iPhone- another great Apple device which falls short of its full potential because APPLE want to control what you can and can't do with it! It's my device and I will do with it as I please thank you very much.

      By the way my pc looks hotter than any mac will ever look.

      I have been a windows support engineer for 15 years now and when I got mad redundant from my last company, I bought a MacBook and have not looked back since.

      If anyone is thinking of changing - and can afford it - I would say go for it. My Mac is so solid and reliable that I cannot see myself replacing it any time soon!

      Thanks for the info. Am carefully saving my money for my first MacBook, so this is welcome (and reassuring) advice.
