If you are someone who relies on any creative work for a living, you probably have a Mac desktop or laptop with you. One of the best things about having a Mac operated PC is its smooth usage experience. That’s why, many of us give up other operating systems and start using Mac. Like others I also had to take this huge step to switch to Mac from the Windows, and looking back into my life, I find it as one of the best decisions I have ever taken.

No offence Windows lovers, that’s the fact. I don’t have any lagging experiences in my new OS and the Mac is inbuilt with a lot of applications and features. For instance, the Pages which comes preinstalled on the Mac is very reliable to use for my blogging purposes.
