Are you a professional and want to work on a Mac? Discover the good reasons and advantages of working on a Mac when you are a professional!
A little semantic reminder: If the term Mac brings together all computers developed by Apple running the operating system macOS, the term Pc refers to all computers that work with the operating system Windows.
Apart from home use, both Macs and PCs are also suitable for professional and corporate use. Knowing which is better between a Mac and a PC is a long-standing debate, and the purpose of this article is surely not to answer it!
However, for professional use, Apple Mac computers have significant advantages that are important to know.
An operating system only dedicated to Macs for better daily use
Where PCs can be built with different components depending on the manufacturer, Apple chooses all the parts of its machines and ensures their installation.
The fact that Apple ensures the complete construction of its machines and provides them with a dedicated operating system also allows better harmony and stability. Indeed, this limits breakdowns, because there is less computer programs (drivers) required to provide the link between the computer and peripherals.
The Macs therefore break down less and have a more stable operation !
Ease of use
Designed to be accessible to as many people as possible, Macs are easy to use and this is true on several points.
First of all, the operating system developed by Apple, macOS, offers a simple user interface and intuitive. The handling is done quickly even when you are new to the subject thanks to a number of actions, clicks, or movement, which has been reduced to the maximum.
Then, concerning the management of applications, it is also very simple. For example, to install an app, all you have to do is download the file with the program, accept the general conditions, move it to the applications folder and you’re done! Also, note that the tool Launchpad in the dock bar is very practical because it allows you to have a overview of all your installed applications.
