Most everyday you will hop on your computer to check your email, facebook, watch a video or just to pass time. Well 9 out of 10 you of reading this are probably in front of a computer running windows. This is because Windows is the standard for operating systems today. It’s just a matter of chance; Apple and Microsoft were pushing for their software at the same time and windows happened to pull ahead. This doesn’t mean Apple is worse or inadequate, but in this situation for Apple, it is quite the opposite.
Apple has created a mindset in the average consumer, this mindset is,”Apple is the best, the coolest, the must have product.” This could be because Mac OS X is just about virus free, or their success in mobile devices, or maybe it’s just that Apple logo. Although I will say that their quality of their products are better than pc suppliers like Dell, Hp and so on.
Another thing I like about Apple is how they say who makes their parts for their computers and mobile devices. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Foxconn, but Apple makes it public that they make their parts. I like this because again Dell, Hp and a number of computer maufacturers have many off name brand parts in their computers. I bought an Hp Pavilion laptop and when I went to upgrade the RAM, I noticed the 4gb stick of RAM in it was made by Ramorex. I’m familiar with many part maufacturers, but Ramorex would never come to mind when I think of good companies who make good quality parts. I wouldn’t necessarily say Foxconn is great, but their pretty good and I’m glad to see Apple is upfront about their supplier.
Even though I would recommend building a desktop yourself, Apple is a great company, the king of the mobile device and by far the best company at advertising.
