1. How to choose a new Apple Mac Computer if you are new to Apple, and Apple Macs?

The Apple iMac 24-inch M1 desktop computer is often the best Apple Mac computer to buy if you are a new Apple Mac computer and are new to Apple Macs, and you need to use a new Apple Mac computer at your home or at your office, however, if you need to travel, or you need a laptop computer, then the Apple MacBook Air M2 would be a model to consider for a new Apple Mac computer home user.

Today all of the Apple Mac computers sold in 2022 are fast computers, the days of a slow Apple Mac computer is over, with one exception, some Apple resellers, and John Lewis are still selling older but new Apple Mac computers that have either Intel technology, and or a slow Macintosh HD storage volume.

The best way to make sure that you are getting the most recent version of a Apple Mac computer model is to use the Apple Store online to check that the model you are looking at has the same technical specification. Buying from the Apple Store online always gets the most recent new Apple Mac computer technical speciation.

2. New Apple Mac Computers use Flash SSD Storage since November 2020!

Did you know that all new Apple Mac computers now come with flash storage volumes also known as Flash storage? Flash storage is way much faster than the previos SATA technology Macintosh HD found in the older generation of Apple iMacs, and the Apple MacBook Pro, and Apple Mac Mini range of Apple Mac computers.

One key point to know, is that with new Apple Mac computers the entry level Apple Mac computers come with 256Gb of flash storage vs an older Apple iMac or older Apple MacBook Pro that has 1TB of storage. So if you have been using an older Apple Mac computer that has a 1TB SATA Macintosh HD and you buy a new Apple Mac computer with just 256Gb of storage, storage issues and problems will arise.

Before you buy or purchase a new Apple Mac computer from the Apple Store online, or from your favorite Apple Store or from John Lewis, Peter Jones, Harrods, or from Currys Apple store, make sure that you are buying or purchasing a new Apple Mac computer that has the right amount of storage that you need.

To work out how much storage you need if you have an existing Apple Mac computer, is to look at the Apple Menu Item and about this Mac, and look at the Storage panel. If you have a Apple iPhone or Apple iPad or an Apple ID account, take a look at how much storage has been used. If you have a Microsoft Windows PC computer then look at how much data storage has been used. This can help you work out on how much storage you might need.

If you plan to to more with a new Apple Mac computer, for example you might want to use Apple Photos for Mac, or you might want to try video editing on the Apple Mac computer, then a new Apple Mac computer that has 256Gb might not be another storage for you.

The best way to work out how much storage you need, is to have a 5-to-10-year plan on how much storage you might need, or how long to keep Apple Mac computers for, like cars some people like to buy a new Apple Mac computer after 3 years. The 2022 range of Apple Mac computers should be ok to use for at least 10 years, but more people will buy a new Apple Mac computer after 7 years, this depends on new MacOS features, and new Apple MacOS applications that only work or are supported on newer Apple Mac computers.

Did you know that you can use an external storage volume to either boot MacOS from an external storage volume, this can be useful if you have a Apple M1 iMac desktop computer that has 256Gb of storage volume space, and you now need a Apple iMac computer that has 1Tb or 2Tb or 4Tb of storage volume space?

By using an external bootable MacOS storage volume allows applications like Apple Mac Mail, Apple iCloud, Apple Photos for Mac, to work on a Apple iMac M1 desktop computer or from a Apple MacBook Air, or Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer that only has 256Gb of storage, and 256Gb is not enough storage. 2022 Apple Mac computers are not upgradeable after purchase.

3. Find out about the Apple Mac computer models that are available to purchase.

If you have a Microsoft Windows PC computer, or you want to use a HDMI Monitor or you have a Windows PC computer screen that has a HDMI port, and you have a USB keyboard or a PC computer keyboard that has a wireless USB dongle, then the Apple Mac Mini computer might be an option to look at, vs the Apple iMac range, the Apple Mac mini does not have a Mic or Microphone or any video camera. But by using a USB-C to USB-A adaptor some USB Keyboards and USB video camera can work with Apple FaceTime and with Microsoft Teams or with Google Meet if an external USB Microphone is used. with MacOS Ventura, the Apple iPhone can be used for Apple FaceTime Video.

The Apple MacBook Air vs the Apple MacBook Pro Apple laptop computers.

If you need the most portable Apple Mac computer to use then the Apple MacBook Air M2 or the Apple MacBook Air M1 is light and is very portable to use. for a home computer user that need to think about either the Apple MacBook Air or the Apple MacBook Pro Apple laptop computer, the performance of the Apple MacBook Air M2 or Apple MacBook Air M1 is going to meet your needs and requirements, as using a Apple MacBook Air vs a Apple MacBook Pro on Apple Mac Safari, Apple Mac Mail, Apple Photos for Mac, Apple iCloud or with Microsoft Office for Mac 2021 is going to be the same.

The Apple MacBook Pro models have the technical edge when it comes to all day use, and all-day Apple MacBook laptop computer performance, the Apple MacBook Pro has a better brighter display, and slightly better studio quality microphones, and the MacBook Pro fans keep the MacBook Pro nice and cool.
