Reasons for switching to a Mac

Posted on October 30, 2013

Image

Still considering moving from Windows to Mac? Here are a few reasons that VIVO Computers quickly put together for you:

Here at VIVO, we care about our customers and want to offer them the ultimate computer experience. After much deliberation, we have come up with a hefty list of reasons why you, or any Windows user, should move to a Mac platform.

(Stay in touch for more blogs written about this topic.)

Reasons for switching to a Mac:

1.Viruses

Working on a computer that doesn’t have a virus scanner may seem a bit uncommon, but it’s really how we like things to be. The Mac OS X operating system is not affected by any of the hundreds, if not thousands, of PC viruses out there. In other words, Mac computers feature built-in defenses that help keep you safe from spyware and malware. This feature also saves you from scanning for anti-virus software, from the hassle of constant alerts, and from often annoyingly expensive updates. Because computers with a Mac OS X are not hindered by viruses or malware, you’ll save tons of money on yearly virus scanner licenses, avoid all-night scans of your hard drives, and, consequently, have more time to play.

2. It all works!

Apple has diligently designed the best software and operating system (OS X), making sure it all works properly and without crashing. We know your time means money, and Apple, as well as VIVO Computers, wants you to save time and get the most out of your productivity.

3. No drivers.

Most base systems do not require a driver in order to function properly. Most devices are compatible with Macs, and all the applications are designed to work in a plug-and-play manner.

4. Affordable, if not free, software upgrades ($19.99), as well as free software updates. Apple has made sure that upgrading your operating system translates into a hassle-free process with less troubleshooting, and therefore, fewer headaches. Why worry about overpaying for operating system upgrades anymore?

5. Outstanding, state-of-the-art hardware and software.

Another important reason why Macs perform longer and are much more reliable than the average personal computer on the market.

Why worry about so much about warranties when Apple products rarely break?

6. Amazing operating system: “OS X”.

Macs can run both the Mac OS X operating system and Windows (Windows XP to Windows 8) with either Apple’s Boot Camp or Parallels’ Desktop (without rebooting) proprietary applications. Mac OS X is also designed to run Windows applications without hassles. This can be a huge plus for long-time Windows users who don’t want to reinstall their operating system on a twice-yearly basis.

7. Award-winning technical support.

Yes, just like it sounds: award-winning technical support from Apple, either through the Apple Retail Store (Genius Bar, Joint Venture, Workshops, or One-to-One) or over the phone with the extended warranty, also known as the AppleCare Protection Plan. Additionally, VIVO Computers offers free tech support for all of our customers within the 30-day warranty period.

And the list goes on and on…so why are you waiting to switch to a Mac?
