Today, Mac is still widely used by a great majority of people around the world and has given Windows a run for its money.

Apple has produced both desktop and laptops computers. Unlike the Windows operating system which can be used for any computer brand, the Mac operating system is only used with Apple computers.

The MacBook Air introduced early this year is a 13.3 inch notebook computer which weighs only 1.36 kg and is 0.16 inches thick. This uses Intel Core 2 Duo processors and 2 GB of RAM.

Aside from these computers, Apple has also produced the iPod which is a digital media player and the iPhone which is a phone, an iPod and an internet device in one.
