Why you’ll love a Mac.

The Mac is designed to be better than ever before.

Incorporating the latest technological innovations, a Mac is a user’s delight. With incredibly fast flash storage,
new powerful CPUs, Thunderbolt connectivity and thin, lightweight and sturdy unibody cases, new Macs are about three times faster than their predecessors.

It works well with Office and Windows.

Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint work great on a Mac. And if your studies require you to run the occasional Windows app, a Mac can do that too.1

The Mac App Store is a great place to get new Apps.

The App Store features over 75,000 education apps that cover a wide range of subjects for every teaching and learning style. From phonics to Physics, the App Store gives you endless ways to learn new concepts.

Long battery life.

Finding a place to power up on campus isn’t always easy. That’s why the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display model features a breakthrough battery that lasts 10 hours and the 15-inch model has battery that lasts 9 hours – enough to get you through your day.

The world’s most advanced operating system.

OS X Yosemite takes the power and simplicity of the Mac to a new level, with a beautiful new
design and app enhancements that you use every day. And with OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 continuity features, your Mac and iOS devices recognize when they’re near each other and work together in amazing new ways.

A Mac is compatible with your stuff.

A Mac easily finds Wi-Fi hotspots and connects to your college network.4 It also works with almost every printer, camera and Bluetooth-enabled device out there. Turn on personal hotspot on your iPhone right from your Mac—without having to remove your iPhone from your pocket. Your iPhone automatically appears like any other Wi-Fi network, so it’s just as easy to join.

Documents, presentations, spreadsheets. The Mac way.

The iWork suite of applications makes it easy to create professional-looking essays, projects and CVs.5 And you can open, save and share Microsoft Office files.

Everyday applications that work together.

The Apps give an amazing touch to your routine jobs. AirDrop lets you share files instantly, and also you can send and receive files between Mac and iOS devices. The new Markup feature helps you quickly fill out and annotate forms, images, and PDFs right in your email messages.

It comes with software you’ll love to use.

Every Mac includes built-in software that lets you do incredible things with your photos, turn videos into cinematic masterpieces and create great-sounding songs.

Video chat straight out of the box.

With FaceTime, you can talk to friends and family face to face anytime — whether they’re on a Mac, iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. You can also share presentations, photos and more with iChat Theater.6
