If you now have an Apple laptop - you will have either a Macbook (standard size laptop) or a Macbook Air (very slim lightweight laptop), rather than the options of a Windows laptop, tablet or an iPad. The MacBook Air has been the market leader in the lightweight laptop sector. There are many laptops on the market, but this market is rapidly changing. There are now many new tablets on the market including those from Samsung and the new Microsoft Surface, but the iPad is still the market leader. For people on the move who only need email, internet, the occasional bit of word processing and document reading, a tablet will cover all those requirements and many more.
Some elements of these laptops are very similar, some are different. Most laptops do not have touch screens yet, they use a mouse or trackpad (built in mouse), and fuller versions of some applications are built in. For example, if you have transferred from using a Windows laptop with Windows Explorer, using Finder, the file management program and keeping your laptop tidy inside is different to what you are used to. However, the settings are very similar on all the Apple products. We are there to help and can sort your document organisation and hard drive if you are finding it a bit of mess.
