Mac buying guide: all Apple computers — 2022

The range of Apple computers has increased over the years to the point where there is practically a computer model for each type of user and their needs. From the MacBook, the Apple laptops, to the Mac Pro, the most powerful desktop that the Cupertino company has created. In this post we are going to review all the Apple computer models and we will also remember some long-awaited relic.

Mac mini, the entry range to Apple desktops

If we look in the history of Apple for the first Mac mini marketed by the Cupertino company, we have to go back to 2005, specifically to January 2005 when Apple unveiled the first Mac mini to the world, a very inspired computer in an earlier model from the company, the Power Mac G4 Cube. It also did so at a very affordable price, only $499 for its most basic version available in a single color, silver.

Changes introduced throughout history

When we talk about the Mac mini, we are talking about a device that, despite being a desktop computer, has really small dimensions, hence the name that Apple gave this device. The year 2010, however, was when Apple did a major design overhaul by making the Mac mini truly mini. Until then the dimensions were small, especially if we compare it with the desktops that were available at that time.

We can even consider that the latest renewal of this device, in which Apple has introduced its own M1 chip in this device, is also a great leap since, in some way, it has provided this device with power and features that until now he hadn't enjoyed the moment.

One of the curious points of this Apple computer is that, even today, the Mac mini is the only Apple computer that the company sells without peripherals, that is, you just buy the computer, and you have to buy it separately. both the screen, the keyboard and the mouse or trackpad.

To what public is it directed according to its benefits?

Historically, the Mac mini has been aimed at a public that had very basic demands in terms of power and performance, since the use of the computer was intended for surfing the Internet and doing office work. In addition, one of the peculiarities of this device is that, really, if you buy only the Mac mini, you will not be able to use it, since you have to buy, separately, both the screen and the keyboard and mouse or trackpad.

However, as we mentioned before, the features of the Mac mini have been increased considerably after the latest renovation in which Apple has introduced the M1 chip, which has given it power and performance that it had not had until now. turning it into a device that can be taken into account by a much broader audience with more demanding needs.

iMac, the computer desired by all

To find the first iMac that Apple released, we have to go back even a century. We are in 1998, specifically in the month of May. That was the date chosen by Apple to present to the world the first iMac known as G3, a range of computers desired by practically any Apple user.

This launch was the result of the return of Steve Jobs to Apple, whose objective was to launch a desktop computer on the market that was capable of one of the main elements of a desktop computer, the tower, making the entire CPU inside the same monitor, an idea that broke with the concept of a computer and that endures today, being one of the hallmarks of the iMac.

The initial price of that device started at $1,299, so from the beginning it was a device with a high price that, in addition, the maximum memory configuration it had was 256 MB.

iMac G3 original

Changes introduced over the years

When talking about iMac we have to talk about the change, as we mentioned before, the fact that the entire CPU will be integrated into the body of the monitor and in this way the tower could be dispensed with, already represented a really big change. However, the iMac itself has also undergone changes throughout its history, some more striking than others.

The first iMac models had a really bulky screen and it was the Bondi Blue model that achieved the best sales with its translucent sea blue cover that referred to a Bondi beach in Sydney. Later, in 1999, Apple gave the possibility of purchasing this iMac in up to 5 different colors, which referred to five different fruits: Tangerine, Grape, Violet, Blueberry and Cal.

The first change of the iMac came with the iMac G4 or also known by the iMac lamp due to the aesthetics of the device that resembled or reminded that of a lamp, it was in 2002. Apple wanted to bet on a very modern design, in which differentiated two parts of the device, the screen, available in 15, 17 and 20 inches, and the base on which the screen was held, where the CPU was placed.

In 2004, the first iMac model arrived, which is quite similar to what we have today. Apple wanted, with the iMac G5 model, to re-introduce the entire CPU behind the screen, which in this case was available in 17 and 20 inches.

iMac 2009

One of the biggest changes came in 2006, not so much aesthetically, since the iMac Core Duo looks a lot like the iMac G5, but inside. This iMac was the first Apple personal computer that had an Intel chip, which caused the capacity of the iMac to increase considerably, giving it more power and better performance.

In this way we arrive at 2007, where the change was once again in the aesthetics of the iMac, thanks to the iMac Core 2 Duo, a computer that was made of aluminum and glass, breaking with the plastic used until now. The change in manufacturing material was not the only notable difference with respect to the previous model, but the screen also saw its thickness reduced, offering an aesthetic, as a whole, of being a much more sophisticated product.

Two years later, in 2009, the iMac Core iX arrives with Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and a slight, almost negligible redesign. In this case the available screen sizes were 21.5 and 27 inches. Finally we come to the current iMac, the thinnest to date that was presented in 2012. With this renewal, Apple broke the streak of more than 500 days without renewing this device, and it did so with a completely renewed model that is characterized by the thinness of the premium yet elegant body and aesthetics of this device.

One of the biggest changes in the history of the iMac arrives in 2021. Accompanying Apple's M1 chip, the Cupertino company nods to the past of these devices and along with a complete redesign of these devices, introduces them in 8 different colors , mimicking the move he made with one of the first iMacs in Apple's history. Beyond the new design and the striking colors, this computer is especially important because it is the first iMac that has the chip developed by Apple.

Target of this type of computers

The iMac is a product that is recommended to practically any user. Depending on the demands of the user's use, the chosen configuration will vary, but it is a reliable computer that will work perfectly for many years. Buying an iMac is synonymous with durability, quality and reliability, therefore, buying it is completely advisable for all those users who are willing to spend a little over a thousand euros on a computer that will undoubtedly more than meet expectations .

Mac Pro the computer for the privileged

As the years went by, Apple provided computers for all types of users, and in August 2006 it launched the first Mac Pro, Apple's most powerful computer, the range dedicated to the most demanding professionals who need enormous power and features to be able to carry out all your ideas and work.

In the same way that at the performance level it is a computer that is only reserved for a minority that really needs this power to carry out their work, the same thing happens with the price, which is in line with its capabilities and again, reserved only for a privileged few.

Mac Pro 2006

Changes introduced over the years

Interestingly, the Mac Pro is the only computer that meets Apple's initial idea of ​​a desktop computer, since from its birth until today, the Mac Pro does have a tower as is the case with traditional computers. This is a point of difference in the design line of Apple, whose desktop computers lack the characteristic tower.

Since its launch in August 2006, Apple has introduced few but notable changes in the Mac Pro, that is, it took a long time since until 2013 the Cupertino company did not make a facelift to the Mac Pro in terms of design. Users went from having a traditional tower to a device that looked like a black trash can, whose design was very striking and distinctive. In 2019, Apple gave the Mac Pro practically the same proportions and design, leaving aside the design change produced with the Mac Pro in December 2013.

Mac Pro target audience

As we mentioned before, the Mac Pro is a computer that is reserved for a minority that needs extreme power to carry out their work and ideas. In fact, the Mac Pro is the only Apple desktop computer with standard expansion slots for graphics cards and other expansion cards.

MacBook Air, the most popular Apple laptop

The MacBook Air is a product that seems to have been with us all our lives, however, the birth of this Apple laptop is relatively recent since it was in 2008 when Apple presented and launched the thinnest laptop in history. In addition, it should be mentioned that this laptop was the first Mac that had an SSD storage as an official option, in the same way it was the first Mac that did not have an optical disc reader.

We can say that the MacBook Air marked the path of the laptop industry, which from then on drifted towards much finer devices despite cutting back on performance. Even within the Cupertino company itself, the MacBook Air marked the way for the rest of the laptops to come. In this way we have seen how the MacBook Pro has been resembling its aesthetics to this, making each time a lighter and thinner product, that is, in this case being able to opt for very high performance and features.

MacBook Air 2008

This is how the MacBook Air has been changing

As we said, the birth of the MacBook Air was a turning point in the world of laptops, since Apple offered with this device something never seen before, a really thin, elegant and easily transportable laptop thanks to its dimensions, thickness and weight. Presenting such a modern device meant that the MacBook Air in later years did not undergo too many changes, beyond moving to a 13-inch screen, gradually decreasing its thickness or adopting the retina screen of its older brother, the MacBook Pro.

Perhaps the strongest change that the MacBook Air has undergone was witnessed not long ago, when Apple introduced new colors, removed all ports to leave only USB-C and introduced Touch ID as an unlock method for the most famous laptop in the world. Manzana.

MacBook Air Colors

The absence of a major renovation for several years could have been caused by the birth of a competitor within Apple itself, the MacBook. In fact, as a result of the presentation of this laptop, a current of thought was created that bet on the disappearance of the MacBook Air to make way for the MacBook as an entry-level laptop. In the end it was not like that, in fact, just the opposite happened, a somewhat high price compared to the performance of the MacBook made Apple finally bet on the MacBook Air.

To what public is it directed according to its benefits?

The MacBook Air has been and is so successful for two reasons, the first, the groundbreaking design with which it was born, accompanied by such striking dimensions and weight, made the MacBook Air the perfect laptop for most users. To this we must add that, over time, it became Apple's cheapest laptop, being able to buy it for less than a thousand euros, so it was accessible to a much larger audience.

Given its features, the MacBook Air is an ideal device for those users who do not need very high features, since the use of the laptop is intended for carrying out daily tasks such as browsing the Internet and office automation, with the possibility of also doing tasks most demanding on a timely basis. Although perhaps we will have to modify this label thanks to the fact that, currently with the M1 chip developed by Apple itself, the MacBook Air enjoys performance and power that it had not had until now, capable of giving many more users that necessary power. for video editing, for example.

MacBook Pro, the power made portable

The birth of the MacBook Pro, surely one of the best products as a whole that Apple has carried out, occurred in 2006, when it was presented by Steve Jobs himself during the MacWorld Expo. As is often the case with Apple products, the MacBook Pro initially impressed everyone due to its design as it broke with the usual aesthetics of laptops. Apart from the disruptive design, it also stood out for having a FireWire 800 port, an iSight camera and the MagSafe charger.

With the launch of the MacBook Pro, Apple gave users a laptop with a completely new design, but without having to give up the power necessary to carry out highly demanding tasks from anywhere.

MacBook Pro 2008

Evolution of the MacBook Pro

The birth of the MacBook Pro already meant a really big change in the world of laptops, but in addition, this device was one of the laptops that was always at the forefront of technology. For the first two years of its inception, the MacBook Pro was one of the first computers to feature Intel Core duo processors and later Intel Core 2 Duo processors. It had 320 GB of storage, which at the time was something really important.

With this device, Steve Jobs marked the way for laptops, a laptop that was completely renewed in 2008, placing special emphasis on design, much improved, and on providing greater autonomy and more power. This change meant saying goodbye to the removable battery, which made the MacBook Pro have better autonomy. The performance of these improved thanks to the incorporation of Intel i3, i5 and i7 processors.

4 years after that first renewal, the second took place, a change of scenery that brought the MacBook Pro closer to its little brother, the MacBook Air, in terms of design, since the thickness of the device was considerably reduced. . The highlight of this renovation was the screen with which the Cupertino company provided the apple laptop for professionals, the famous Retina screen, a high-resolution screen that had more than 5.1 million pixels. It should also be mentioned that with this generation, the MacBook Pro began to have SSD storage units, without a doubt, a leap in quality.

MacBook Pro 2015

We arrive at October 2016, and we witness the last great renewal of the MacBook Pro range so far. Once again, Apple renews the design of a device that is truly adored by all users who enjoy it every day. Retina display technology delights users who enjoy it, in addition, the Cupertino company introduces the Touch Bar, a touch bar on the keyboard that the user can customize to their liking in each of the applications they use.

In 2020 the company makes a historic move, it begins to manufacture its own chips for its own computers, and the MacBook Pro is one of the first devices, along with the Mac mini and the MacBook Air, to have the privilege of mounting the M1 chip from Apple, a change, that although physically or aesthetically does not take place, since the body of the MacBook Pro is the same, internally it is a really gigantic change, a new era in Apple computers. The MacBook Pro with M1 chip returns to take a leap, in features, performance and power.

Who is the MacBook Pro for?

Apple has perfectly known how to focus each laptop on a very specific audience and this MacBook Pro is reserved for all those users who want a laptop capable of giving them all the power necessary to carry out any task or job they need. We could classify it as the powerhouse with legs, thanks to its design and size it is capable of performing any task anywhere.

Another of the strengths of the MacBook Pro is its durability, a device capable of working as well as the first day for years and years regardless of the updates and use that can be given. Therefore, all those users who want a very powerful laptop, comfortable to transport and with a long life, the MacBook Pro is the computer for them.

Apple computers that are no longer for sale

There are countless Apple computers that are no longer for sale, however there are some mythical models that you have probably heard of. Below we show you some that, at least in our opinion, have a greater value in the history of the company.

Apple I

Apple's first computer. It went on sale in July 1976 and only 200 units were built. The peculiar thing about this computer is that it was really a completely assembled circuit board, which contained 62 chips and for which you had to buy separately a case, a power supply transformer, a power switch, an ASCII keyboard. and a screen.

Although it had many aspects to improve, it is one of the most iconic for being, literally, the first Apple product. With it, both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak intended to standardize the use of personal computers. It did not have an interface similar to what we know now and in those years it was very difficult to find a place for it, but the verbiage of the already mythical Jobs did a lot for the project to go ahead.

Apple I

Apple Lisa

The Apple Lisa is a computer ahead of its time, perhaps that was the reason why it was not a commercial success at the time. But really, this computer was a pioneer in integrating a set of technological advances at the hardware and software level that later became industry standards such as the mouse, a user interface, the hard drive or virtual memory, among others. .

Of course, it will remain in a certain way in the black history of Apple and Steve Jobs. The excessive budget that the development of this team meant to Apple was one of the culprits that Jobs was gradually losing the trust of the shareholders' meeting. And another curious fact that has never been confirmed and is also related to Jobs is that it is believed that he was called Lisa just like his daughter, who was not recognized at that time.

Apple Lisa

Macintosh 128K

This is the first Macintosh, announced in 1983 and featured in 1984 in a famous commercial aired in the third quarter of the Super Bowl. It is considered the best advertisement in history despite the fact that the computer did not appear for a single second, being intended to show IBM consumers as a kind of herd at the orders of Big Brother.

The computer itself supplied two applications designed to display its graphical interface, MacPaint and MacWrite. The first demo was given by Steve Jobs, which became the first of his famous keynote speeches. Of course, if the Apple Lisa began to generate mistrust around Jobs, this was the straw that broke the camel's back. His poor sales compared to the investment made the legendary co-founder have to leave his own company.

Macintosh 128K

iMac G3

On May 6, 1998 Steve Jobs presented a colored iMac, exactly we are talking about iMac G3 that enjoyed a very wide range of colors, something unusual if we talk about an Apple computer. In addition to this, another of the curious points of this iMac was that it had a handle to be able to transport it. This computer helped Apple to get out of a small economic downturn since it was in a free fall financially speaking. Within the different colors, the one that stood out the most was Bondi Blue.

A computer so iconic that even in the presentation of the iMac 2021 it was recalled in a certain way. Both in the essence of the colors and in the spots with which Apple promoted it, a nod was made to this range of computers that evidently endures in the memory even in our times.

iMac G3

PowerBook

We are in 1991 when Apple launches three PowerBooks, the first three Apple laptops, and the parents, so to speak, of the current MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The three computers were the PowerBook 100, considered Apple's low-end laptop, the mid-range PowerBook 140, and the PowerBook 170, the high-end laptop.

These three laptops made a lot of noise in the industry due to their compact cases, incorporation of a trackball, and keyboard layout that left room for wrist rest. There is a lot of difference with what we understand by a laptop today, but in its time it was a revolution and is still considered iconic for its design.

iMac Pro

In 2017, this computer was launched with a form factor identical to the iMacs of that time, but offering an exclusive space gray color that other versions did not have. With a 27-inch 5K panel and Intel processors from the Radeon Pro Vega range, it came to occupy a professional market niche that was not being covered by the Mac Pros of that time.

In 2021 they began to run out and allow only one default configuration until they were finally discontinued completely. The arrival of Apple's own processors and even the latest 27-inch model with Intel were leaving it in an indefinite position and since it was never one of the favorites of the professional sector either, Apple decided to discontinue it permanently.
