Who should buy a Mac?

And for those who are less familiar, an Apple computer. Apple computers henceforth referred to as macs are not quite like windows computers. They work differently. Windows aims to give the user more control and customization, whereas a mac takes away much of the responsibility and keeps it's focused on the user experience. So the main question was, who should be using it? We have listed down a few groups and explain why said the group would benefit much more from a mac rather than a windows computer.

Designers should buy a Mac.


We know it is quite a cliche. But there is an excellent reason why macs and designers go hand in hand. There is a perfect reason why Apple is so focused around its retina display technology and their new retina OLED screens. It is all about colour correction. Macs do something that windows tend to struggle with; it is to show colours meant to look like on the screen. There is no blue, red or green tint to worry about.


What you see is what you get and above all else, the details are amazing. Even if you are using a small screen on a mac book pro, you can guarantee that your screen is already optimized to show you the correct colour. Colour that matches when you print the image on an image printer knowing full well that the colour that comes out the same. Macs have always done graphics well, and they always pride themselves in optimizing the settings for you, so you don't have to. It is like having a guitar that always auto-tunes itself.

Video editors should buy a Mac


Much like designers, be it graphics or whichever, video editors are also frequent users of macs. A Macs design is to show colours well, which is of course extremely important when you are an editor doing colour correction settings on your video. Applying filters and gamma correction cannot be accessible if the screen is not showing you exactly what you need to see. But something else is needed, a graphics processor that can handle all of that processing. We are not talking about 3-D here. But videos still do require rendering and processing. Macs have always designed around that and for that. If you go to any video production company, we can guarantee that you see almost all of their editors on a mac.
