it’s now known by everyone that the best place to buy a Mac or any Mac
related product is from MacMall. The reasons are many but the main one
is price – MacMall simply has the lowest prices on Macs, period.
Especially when you usea discount code. That said, let’s get down to our 4 Favorite Macs and the how’s and why’s of each.
1. The MacBook Air
powerful enough to serve as your primary computer and is still mobile.
It’s ultra-thin and light but solid and tough, so durability shouldn’t
be a concern. Video loads and encodes quick. The battery life is
outstanding. You can work almost all day on this and not need a charge,
Apple claims up to seven hours and we saw no reason to think they’re
screen is bright and crisp with minimal glare. Ours came with a 256GB
solid state hard drive, 1.8GHz Intel Core i7, 4GB of RAM, and a shared
memory Intel HD Graphics 3000. Looks great, runs great, runs fast, the
solid state drive making a big difference in the speed of opening files.
We liked the ease at which Apps can go fullscreen and the Mission
Control feature which gives you a look at everything that’s running on
you need to do serious work on the run and unless you do a lot of video
editing (check out the MacBook Pro w/Retina if you do) this one should
be able to handle anything you throw at it.
2. The iMac
you want an all-in-one desktop, this one beats them all. The latest
iMac is the thinnest from Apple ever. How thin? 5mm thin. Thanks to
Apple, thin doesn’t mean small when it comes to screen size, as it’s
available in a big 21.5 in. or a really big 27 in. version. Another
plus, the screens in new iMacs feature a 75% reduction in glare from
come loaded with Apple’s latest OS, Intel's Core i5 processor, and
Nvidia GeForce graphics into the computer. This gives the iMac up to 60%
more processing power for use with 3D games, HD home videos and more.
It’s available with a Fusion Drive that permits high-capacity hard-drive
storage but performs like flash storage – this means speed. Also, it
features Apple’s Thunderbolt technology that allows users to daisy-chain
storage drives, cameras, and even monitors with that port. Very
All in all, dollar for dollar, feature for feature, we think this is the best computer around.
3. The iPad
the iPad. What can we say about it that you don’t already know or envy?
You gotta have an iPad, all there is to it. It’s so much than just a
media device, with apps that let it behave almost like a laptop. You can
write with it, work on spreadsheets, work in Powerpoint, etc. In short,
you can work as well as play on it. If you are going to be doing a lot
of writing, we do recommend you get the Apple Blutooth Keyboard with it.
use for eBooks and eTextbooks is a big plus, and its battery life is
nothing short of amazing. Like we said, you gotta have an iPad.
4. The MacBook Pro w/Retina
Rolls, Ferrari and Hummer of laptops in one package. Nothing has better
a display, the Retina now being the industry benchmark to beat. It’s
slim, portable and as powerful as a desktop. This version has some
upgrades over the last one, most notably HDMI and faster ports.
you value style as much as performance, and aren’t satisfied with
anything less than the best, then this is this one for you. It’s the
best laptop Apple’s ever made, and that’s saying a lot.
it, for now. So, head on over to MacMall and pick up one or more of
these things. Don’t forget to tell ‘em their CouponPals said “Hey.”
