About Apple Mac Computers
Apple Mac (Fortune Magazine's recently announced company, the most admired in the United states). The Apple organisation has been producing computers since the 1970s and is a great competitor in the field of consumer electronics, particularly in the last few years taking a much larger proportion of the world market with such well recognised products as the IPhone and the Ipod. Its recently introduced Ipad has raced to be a world leader and the popularity and acceptance has prompted many more people to look again at Apple's range of computers and appreciate some of the advantages they have to offer. Apple prides itself on innovation.
The Sunshine Coast has not been slow to observe this development and have embraced this growing demand for information by establishing a dedicated section of enthusiasts to promote and learn from our member's experience.
Perhaps a legitimate criticism leveled at Apple in the past was the dearth of compatible applications created by other manufacturers. This is now no longer the case as not only do many offer a "Mac" version of their apps, but your Apple computer can be easily adapted to run the Microsoft operating system to enable your computer to run the two systems side by side and easily be switched back and forth. In these days of cyber intrusion, Apple also offer exceptional security and has hundreds of drivers for peripherals pre-installed.
Apple Mac does everything any other other computer is able to do, but often in a more friendly-user way. In concert with the other two main operating systems of Linux and Microsoft Windows, there is a growing interest in Apple Mac at the Sunshine Coast Computer Club.
If you are not a current Sunshine Coast Computer Club member, why not join and become part of this special interest group. There is a small yearly membership available for individuals ($45) or families ($55) and an entrance fee of $4 to attend meetings which includes use of all equipment and tea and coffee.
