iPad, iMac or MacBook: which one is right for you?

 

Apple products are some of the most sought after tech in the world – and rightly so, offering as they do a clean and intuitive operating system, beautifully simple design and some of the most powerful home computing on the market today.

They’re the machine of choice for everyone from families to students and even professional graphic designers, but with so many products on the market, which one is right for your needs?

We’ve picked out the key features of some of Apple’s top selling products, so take a look and see which one is best for you.

Apple iPad

If the main use you’d get out of a computer is surfing the net, watching catch up TV and the odd bit of word processing, skip a desktop or laptop computer and go straight for an iPad.

They’re incredibly light and portable, have vibrant screens and offer excellent responsiveness. If you buy a bluetooth keyboard, it has almost as much functionality as a laptop or MacBook.

This option is perfect for families – even very young kids can use it with ease – or people who don’t need to do a lot of home computing but like to have something they can take out and about with them.

Apple MacBook

The Apple MacBook range is a big step up from the iPad, offering an array of features suitable for professional audio, picture or video editing, on top of the ability to carry out all the regular functions of a laptop like spreadsheets, word processing and gaming.

It’s a great option for an amateur design buff or a student in a digital media field.

There are plenty of choices of size from the 11.6 inch Apple MacBook Air to the 15.4 inch Apple MacBook Pro Retina, even more choice in specification with prices starting at £649 all the way up to £2549 and even a choice of colours.

Apple iMac
