Why It’s A Good Time To Switch To Mac…

More and more people are converting from PC to Apple Mac.

Did you know that the first Macintosh was invented in 1984? Just 28 years later, their progression has been astounding and Mac’s are now one of the most talked about topics worldwide!

Sleek, fast and elegant are just a few words that spring to the Nexus team’s minds.



Here are a few fantastic things worth mentioning.

Security: Mac users are at less risk of being infected by spyware or viruses in comparison to Windows users.

Portability: The MacBook Air and iPad are light and compact – great for carrying around with you!

Reliability & Speed: No more waiting around for your machine to start up – the boot up and shut down process is quick, they suffer from fewer in explainable slowdowns, and not forgetting that Macs can handle tight memory situations much better.

iCloud: It provides you with the facility to store your data on the internet instead of your local storage (such as your computer.) This online space enables you to file photos, apps and contacts etc. Furthermore it allows you to sync multiple devices like the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
