Many people have a hard time deciding whether to purchase a Windows computer or an Apple computer. Of course, both have their advantages and both have their disadvantages. This guideline will go over a few advantages of Apple computers. In most cases, you will have to shell out a small fortune for an Apple computer, but in the computer world, you definitely get what you pay for. To learn more about Apple computers or to purchase an Apple computer, check out sites like Apple Store and Apple Store Canada.

1. Security

Apple computers are known for their amazing security. Not to drag Windows computers into this guideline, but Windows computers have many more security risks and threats than Apple computers do. The reason for that is that most of the viruses, malware and adware that is out there is designed for Windows operating systems, not Apple operating systems. Plus, Apple computers are not as popular as Windows computers, which makes people who produce viruses and other malicious software want to target Windows computers instead of Apple computers.

With a Windows computer, it is an absolute must that you have a strong anti-virus program. With an Apple computer, it doesn't hurt to have an anti-virus program, but you can feel safe about the security of your computer without one.

2. Reliability

It is a known fact that Apple computers are strongly built computers. When you purchase an Apple computer, that computer should easily last you for five to 10 years, if not longer. With an Apple computer, the same Apple employees who create the hardware also create the software. With a Windows computer, different teams create different components of the computer. The Apple operating system is designed to be run on Apple computers only, which allows the Apple employees to spend more time focusing on the reliability of the software and hardware. Generally speaking, Apple operating systems are much more stable than Windows operating systems, which creates a more reliable computer.

3. Advanced Technology

Apple is known for using all of the latest technology in their computers. For example, in the 1990's Apple came out with an all in one desktop computer. It took Windows based machines many more years to accomplish that task. Other examples of Apple using advanced technology in their computers include their Macbook Pro featuring an LED monitor and multi-touch mouse trackpad and their Desktop Mac Pro featuring a whopping 4 terabytes of storage space. Years ago, Windows computers had an advantage over Mac computers because of Intel processors. Intel processors are now available for Apple computers, as well, which means Apple computers can do everything that Windows computers can do and more. You can even purchase Apple computers that have 8 core processors, which creates a blazing fast computer.
