Apple Explains Why You Should Buy a Mac

Apple today added a new "Why Mac" explainer page to its main Apple.com website, which, as the name suggests, pitches reasons why customers should choose to buy a Mac.

why mac website
The Mac is "easy to learn," powerful, and equipped with tons of apps and free software updates.

Easy to learn. Astoundingly powerful. And designed to let you work, play, and create in ways you never imagined. It's the computer that comes packed with apps that are ready to go right out of the box. Free, regular software updates keep things up to date and running smoothly. And if you already have an iPhone, it feels familiar from the moment you turn it on.

The mini site features highlights on how easy it is to set up a Mac and migrate info and accounts, the Mac's capabilities, and details on how simple the macOS software is to learn.

Apple points out how well the Mac works with other devices like iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch thanks to continuity features, and the privacy features introduced with the M1 chip and the macOS Big Sur update.

The new "Why Mac" site is featured on the homepage, and it includes purchase links for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac.

Seriously, I've had a Mac as my primary computer since 2007 and as long as they keep making them, I will keep buying them as my primary computer because I continue to be "surprised and delighted" using them - including protection as a customer.

With the iPad Pro having the same M1 chip as the Macs yet an OS no where near as good as macOS, they should probably explain to people why they should buy an iPad. :rolleyes:
