Mac computers are a successful force in Education as well as in Industry. Apple has come a long way in shaping this platform, and now Macs, which have always been lauded as easy to use, are now also perceived to be in the same level with PCs in terms of market acceptance.

Mac computers, however, are still allegedly view as expensive by some. Despite this, it is not hard to understand how they have become a powerful force as part of a learning environment.

Since its inception, Macs have been used by people in education — both professors and students for several reasons. First, Macs are easy to use and durable, essential characteristics for machines that you want to use for 4 or more years during your college degree.

Also, it is particularly important that they are durable machines — the hectic environment in our schools makes it every day harder to keep the machines working in good shape for all those long hours.

Here is a list of tasks in which Macs have become indispensable over the years:

·         doing lab assignments

·         researching the web

·         writing lecture notes and even recording them

·         keeping work safe from computer viruses

·         creating outlines for assignments and essays

With all of this going on, it is important to have good computers that are flexible and easy to use. Especially important is to have simple software with a good interface, and this is another area in which Macs are some of the best computers around.
