With its inception in 1984, the Mac was formerly known as the Macintosh. It gained its new name 13 years later in 1997 as it also evolved into a highly sought-after computer in recent years. There are loads of differences between Macs and the well-known Windows-based operating system where people seem to clearly have a preference and loyalty to the one they identify with the most. Due to the nature of the Mac being a glamorous and trendy piece of equipment, people tend to choose it because of performance and looks. Windows users who choose to stay with their sphere of comfort will likely say that the Mac is not all it is cut out to be. However, most Mac users will attest that it is a very powerful piece of hardware that caters to power users of all sorts. One such profession it serves is the photographer. The fast response of the Mac along with its friendly user interface makes it a strong contender for photo editing.
