Which Apple Mac?

You most likely want all Apple Macs, right? Luckily there are only three to choose from:

  • MacBook
  • MacBook Pro
  • iMachome-office-finance-business-office-workstation-of-3630

While there are also (adding to the confusion):

  • Mac mini
  • Mac Pro

But which one should you buy? It really does depend on your needs, after all, they essentially do the same things!


The MacBook, the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro are the equivalents of laptops, with the Pro being the most expensive, the heaviest and most powerful – with this comes and shorter battery life. If you’re looking for a general home computer on the move, then perhaps the Pro or the Air are for you. If you’re into your gaming or design work and multitasking, then take a look closer at the Pro range. It’s worth noting that they all contain SSD drives as standard, which means much faster loading times than a regular HDD.


The iMac is an all-in-one desktop computer with two current differing screen sizes: 21.5-inch and 27-inch, all LED backlit and the option of upgrading to a 4k resolution. You have a range of differing hard drives to choose from (unlike the MacBooks which have set drives), a standard but fast HDD, Fusion drives or SSDs.

More Confusion

Just to mix it up a bit, don’t forget about the Mac Mini and Mac Pro. Neither have displays with them, both are connected with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built-in, but the Mini is designed to be high in energy efficiency – all you need to do is connect your own keyboard, mouse, and monitor and you’re ready to go! It’s very much conceived to be a highly portable computer with everything you’d expect from a desktop computer – it literally fits in the palm of your hand.

Then you have the Mac Pro, created solely with massive power in mind – it seems to be the very best that Apple can offer in a computer. The GPUs, processors, and storage are much more than that of the MacBooks or the iMacs and it completely dwarfs the Mini.
