iPad for a lot of things, and I also have an Apple desktop PC which is great, but I don't tend to use that all that much anymore.
The number of Apple things we have at our house that we don't really use is shocking. It seems like we spend so much money, buying things on a whim, that we're not even going to use! It's terrible really, but I always feel as though I have to buy things when I'm in the Apple store, because everything just looks so beautiful and new and shiny!
Well Apple are clearly doing their job well with you, then! I do like them as a company though. When you're buying from them, it just feels as though everything's much more personal than anywhere else, and the machines feel as though they're just for you, rather than other machines which are just made for anyone. I know that doesn't make sense, but it's how they make me feel!
Does it really better or easier in use than windows? What are the benefits on it?Just wondering - what kind of computer do you use, and what drew you towards that as a choice for business purposes?
I'm running a 2011 MacBook Pro, and it still stays strong for four hours of battery, even after three years. This is the main thing that attracted me to it. I know that the machines are a little more pricey (okay, much more) than their Windows equals, but I got a good deal on it (student deal plus staff discount at the time) meaning I paid just £700 for the thing, including MS Word etc!
I don't really see any drawbacks to using it - however all I do is browse and type, so I suppose anything could do that.
