Choosing the right Mac for you

Mac vs. PC

Whether you’re buying your first computer or considering switching from PC to Mac, there are two main features that make Macs stand out: design and user experience. Apple products deserve a gold star when it comes to design. They look good on the outside and perform seamlessly on the inside. Whether you’re using an iMac, MacBook, iPad, or iPhone, you’ll also enjoy a consistent user experience that to Apple's operating system, OS X. Mac products also come with popular programs that are unique to Apple including iTunes, iCloud, iPhoto, FaceTime, and more.

Desktops vs. Laptops

If you’re seeking a computer that you can use both at home and on the go, a MacBook is an ideal choice. Its portable form factor means you can take it to class, meetings, the coffee shop, and anywhere else you choose to work or play. If portability isn’t a consideration, iMac, Mac Pro or Mac mini is a great addition to any home. Often boasting more powerful specs than a MacBook, a Mac desktop is ideal for everything from everyday computing and home entertainment to gaming and creative tasks.

Laptops vs. Tablets

A MacBook offers the ease of typing on a full-sized keyboard, while an iPad provides a touchscreen for easy navigation. MacBook runs on OS X, which is well suited for productivity, while iPad runs on iOS, which is well matched for entertainment. When choosing between a MacBook and iPad, it’s important to consider how you’ll be using the device. If you need to multitask and work with spreadsheets or documents, a MacBook is an ideal choice. If you mainly surf the web, watch movies, and play online games, an iPad may be a more suitable alternative.

Processor (CPU)

The processor or CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the brain of your computer. All Apple computers are powered by Intel processors. Most models feature a dual-core or quad-core Intel Core processor with high performance for everything from web browsing to streaming Full HD movies. The Mac Pro offers the option of a quad-core or six-core Intel Xeon processor, and is configurable to a 12-core processor – it provides extreme power for your most demanding tasks.

Memory (RAM)

The amount of RAM (random access memory) you opt for depends on how you’ll be using your Mac. Apple computers come with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM, with some models offering the flexibility for upgrades. If you mainly use your computer for casual tasks like web surfing, word processing, and watching movies, a Mac with 4GB RAM can provide the performance you need. For power-hungry tasks like creative work and gaming, a Mac with 8GB of RAM or more delivers superlative speed to keep up with your demands.

Pick the Perfect Apple: MacBooks, iMacs, Mac Pro, and the Mac Mini

Apple’s line-up of Mac computers are truly in a league of their own. Every model is powered by an ultra-fast processor, and comes equipped with the latest Apple operating system and iLife software. And whether you choose the powerful all-in-one iMac, ultra-lightweight MacBook Air, super-small Mac Mini, or the MacBook Pro, you’ll find them all in-store and online at BestBuy.ca.

MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro is Apple’s lightweight and powerful laptop that is constructed from a single piece of aluminum. These machines are loaded with advanced features that ensure every operation is performed smoothly. Plus, MacBooks are equipped with a brilliant LED-backlit glass display, Multi-Touch trackpad, and an energy-efficient design that’s free of most harmful toxins. The latest MacBooks also have the ultra high resolution Retina display that shows off your graphics in incredibly sharp, vivid detail.

MacBook Air

The MacBook Air takes just about every incredible aspect of the MacBook Pro and condenses it into an impossibly-thin device. The Air’s design eliminates the optical drive as well as the spinning hard drive and opts instead for all-flash storage. As a result, it performs and boots up quickly, and offers more room for a bigger battery so you can work and play for hours and hours.

Mac Pro

The latest installment in Apple desktop designs, the Mac Pro combines top performing technologies in graphics, storage, expandability, processing power and memory within an innovative sleek style of chassis. Redefined from the inside out, the Pro is engineered for driving intuitive usability and maximum efficiency, with premium features that get the job done. 


iMacs are Apple’s all-in-one desktops that offer more power than some higher-end PCs. They’re home to the some of the best features available so you can tackle every task with ease whether you’re a graphic designer, video editor or hardcore gamer. And you don’t have to be a pro to own one; Apple’s easy-to-use operating system makes these powerful all-in-ones perfect for everyone.

Mac mini

The Mac mini is the smallest, most energy-efficient desktop computer around. It weighs less than 1.4kg but is loaded with all the power, ports, and performance that you’d expect from any Apple computer. And with Mac mini’s sleek aluminum design, removable bottom panel for easy access to memory, and a built-in power supply, it’ll make a huge impression.
