A few decades back, Windows computers were popular among programmers. This has since changed as coding becomes more demanding and programmers shift from getting the job done to focus on performance, resilience, and efficiency. Today Macs have taken over the programming world. If you look around, you will notice that almost every programmer uses a Mac. But why is that?
Some of the reasons why programmers prefer Mac to PCs lies with the operating system, the community behind Mac OS, the Mac build-quality, cross-platform compatibility, and of course, personal preference.
Just like with the Windows computers, Mac developers have a lot for you on their menu. Apple products include; MacBook Air ($999 – $1,249), Mac Pro ($5,999 -$6,499), iMac ($1,099 – $2,299) , MacBook Pro ($1,299 – $2,399), and Mac Mini ($699 – $1,099). They also recently released the M1 MacBooks Air and Pro, and M1 Mac Mini. With this long list of Mac computers, you can’t help but wonder which one to go with, especially if you’re getting started in your coding journey.
To solve this mystery, we’ve highlighted the key features to look out for in a Mac. We’ve further given you a tip on which Mac product to go for and a few insights to actualize your passion for programming.
