Which New Mac is Right for You?

By -

Apple has a wide range of Mac products to choose from, but the problem for many people may well be choosing the one that is most suitable for them. If you are considering selling your old Mac and buying one of the latest models, here is a quick guide to the options available to you.


The iMac has changed considerably since it was first released by Apple, and the latest version is the best of the lot. This all-in-one computer is now thinner than ever before at the edges, and it is incredible to think how much they have managed to pack into it. It comes with a widescreen display, a quad-core processor, a 1TB hard drive and 8GB RAM that you can upgrade to 32GB. It comes in two screen sizes, 21.5 inches and 27 inches, and as with all Macs it runs on OS X Mountain Lion.

Anyone who wants to receive money for Mac computers by selling an old one online can simply sell their device via a website that pays for old computers, and can then use the money to invest in one of the latest versions.

MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro comes in four different versions: the 13 inch and the 15 inch with standard screens, and the 13 inch and the 15 inch with Retina displays. They range from 2.5GHz dual-core to 2.7GHz quad-core models, making them very fast indeed, and come with up to 16GB RAM. Battery life is good in all of the MacBook models, and they also look amazing with their unibody designs. All in all, this is one of the best laptops you can buy.

MacBook Air

The MacBook Air caused a sensation when it came out because it was so incredibly thin. If you like the portability of tablets but you still really need a laptop, this is a great option. The 11-inch model is now the cheapest type of MacBook that you can buy after Apple decided to ditch its classic white MacBook. It also comes in a 13-inch version with up to 256GB flash storage, which leads to a very quick start up and also comes with Thunderbolt for superfast data transfers.

Mac Mini

The Mac Mini is the smallest and cheapest device in Apple’s Mac collection, and it is a very popular device. It provides you with all of the good things about a Mac, but at a lower price. You will need to purchase a monitor, keyboard and mouse separately, but if you already have these then the Mac Mini could be a good option. You can also choose from a 2.5GHz dual-core or 2.3GHz quad-core processor, making it a very fast little computer.

Choose Your Perfect Mac

These are the main models that you can choose from when you decide to invest in a new Mac. Apple is constantly changing its lineup, so in the next year it may come up with even more options. However, in the mean time, consider all the features of the above devices and decide which one is most suitable for your needs, then invest in a computer that has proven itself to be hugely popular with fans all over the world.
