Must have applications if you move from Windows to Macintosh

Beyond the cost of the hardware – which ranges from moderately expensive to eye-wateringly expensive – you also have to think about the software that you use. Unless you’re going to run Windows on OS X – and to do that you’ll need a spare Windows license to allow you to carry out the installation – then you’re going to need to invest in OS X-compatible software.

If you use suites such as Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Suite, then switching is going to be pricey (although some licenses, such as that for Adobe Creative Cloud, allow you the option to choose Windows or OS X).

But yes, this is not going to be cheap. The hardware alone is going to be hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Here is a list of hardware essentials that we have connected to our Macs

  • Apple Bluetooth keyboard
  • Apple Magic Mouse
  • Apple Magic Trackpad
  • 29-inch LG display hooked up to my Mac mini
  • Variety of external storage (WD My Book, WD My Book Duo, WD My Passport Pro)

Here is a list of applications/utilities that we see as “must haves”
