The Mac currently comes in three main categories
- The notebooks – MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air
- The desktops – iMac
- The CPUs – Mac Pro, and Mac mini
Apple has not updated a lot of these models for quite some time, while on the other hand, they have made some of the Mac models obsolete.
Prices and Competition
The Macs have historically dominated their global markets and on an average face less competition than, say, the iPhone or the iPad. That’s not the case in India, though.
Prices continue to be a huge drawback for Macs in India. Apple products usually cost more in India than their western counterparts. Which is a big setback as the desktop and laptop space in India is saturated with low cost alternatives. The newer Macs are only going to complicate this problem with their huge price tags.
The app store also continues to be a huge selling point for the Macs. Apple’s biggest rival in desktop space, Microsoft, takes a huge beating when it comes to the number (and variety) of apps on offer for the desktop. Here’s a look at our favourite Mac apps from 2016.
