Apple In this day and age of iOS this and iPad that you'd nearly forget it, but the gadget maker from Cupertino actually makes personal computers and an accompanying operating system as well. It's been nearly three years since the last substantial release, so it's about time: Apple has just announced a press event titled 'Back to Mac', with a lion on the invite.

(currently, benefits of Mac are mostly imaginary/subjective, apart from not needing a virus scanner)

Actually, the reasons why I bought a MacBook(anecdotal, but still, a reference):

- Aperture
- Motion
- Final Cut Pro
- Logic Pro and GarageBand
- My girlfriend uses it without difficulty

I also use Maya (but the interface feels horrible, while on Windows it is good enough) and Adobe Suite, which are ok or better on Windows, but the Apple suite is killer. There is nothing like GarageBand or Logic Pro on Windows.

Indeed, GarageBand is a nice piece of multitrack software. I tend to prefer REAPER for heavy work, but it's clearly not targeted at the same public at all, and manages to make audio sequencing somewhat easy.

In fact, if I remember well, Logic and GarageBand have some link at the engine level. It's the UI and exposed features which are different.
