Nowadays, Apple is focused on its MacBook, iMac, and Mac mini lineup, as well as its more potent Mac Pro machines. Apple also makes one of the best – and most expensive – monitors on the market in the form of its Pro Display XDR

Types of Mac 

Apple now makes a range of Mac computers and they’re all slightly different. You have desktop computers and laptop computers, and different configurations of each for different types of users – from casual users to professional creatives. 

Here’s a complete breakdown of all of Apple’s current Mac computers: 

MacBook – The MacBook is Apple’s most popular laptop computer. It’s not as powerful as the MacBook Pro and is designed for casual and professional users alike, however, those that need more RAM and processing power should look to the MacBook Pro. The MacBook is Apple’s everyman’s computer, meaning it is suitable for all – but not optimal for heavy workloads and intensive apps and software. 

MacBook Pro – The MacBook Pro is Apple’s premier laptop. It is designed for professional users and is used by all kinds of people from all different disciplines; from photographers to graphic designers to web developers and bloggers, everybody knows and loves the MacBook Pro. It is essentially an industry standard these days. 

Mac Mini – The Mac mini has been around in one form or another for years. It is a standalone desktop computer that does not ship with a monitor, keyboard, or mouse – you have to buy these separately. Or use your current ones. Either way, the Mac mini is a popular choice for a couple of reasons: 1) it is the cheapest Mac computer on the market, and 2) with its new M1 chip, it is exceedingly powerful and it comes with better I/O than both the MacBook Pro and the iMac (2020).

iMac – The iMac comes in two flavors; you have the new M1-powered iMac, which is designed as a home/family computer. It is colorful, packed with great specs and hardware, and has a brand new design. Apple also sells an Intel-powered 27in iMac, though this model will be replaced by a new M1-powered iMac Pro in 2022. 

MacBook Air – The MacBook Air is the thinnest and lightest Mac. Apple has been making its MacBook Air laptops for years now, and its latest is one of the lightest and most potent laptops on the market. Ideal for anyone that travels a lot, the MacBook Air fits anywhere and is perfectly suited to working on the road or remotely.
