[/frame_left]It was a cold Cincinnati day and I agreed to spend that day coding in exchange for a brand new Mac Mini.Â I could not wait for that day to be over so that I could bring home my brand new Mac, plug it in, and never look back.Â Since then I have started my own business
and have purchased more Macs to add to my arsenal of awesomeness.
My Apple Suite
The newest addition to my suite of Apple products.Â I do the majority of all my work on it; including design, coding, SEO, research, email, video, etc. Itâ€™s also the hub of all my time tracking, invoicing and SERP/Backlink reporting.
Additionally, I have it set up so that I can remote in from any of my iOS devices to retrieve documents or control the screen and itâ€™s attached to a 2 Terabyte LaCie hard drive that acts as my time machine and large video/photo files.
13â€™â€™ MacBook Pro
Perfect for getting work done in coffee shops, while traveling, or when ever you want to work from a couch or outside under a tree.Â I think of it as the next best thing to having my iMac with me in a mobile setting.
The iPad is a terrific device.Â The more I use it the more uses I find for it.Â Letâ€™s say that you are meeting someone at Panera Bread to talk business.Â You just need to check email, browse the Web, and use a few simple SEO tools for quick auditing.Â You donâ€™t really need all the production power of the MacBook Pro and the beauty is that you have all this capability that fits inside of a Padfolio.
Iâ€™ve found the iPad to be an excellent presentation device as well.Â One can very effectively give a great presentation using KeyNote for iOS.Â There is even a way to use the iPhone as a remote!Â I donâ€™t know if it can get much cooler than this!
This was my first Mac and it has been worked hard in the beginning; as it was used for everything.Â Now that I have the iMac and MacBook Pro for design and video so now the Mac mini is in retirement and does a wonderful job at being a general workstation that runs reports and acts as a Mac mini server.
There are so many uses for the iPhone 4 that Iâ€™m not going to even try to list them here. Â Most of the apps that I have on my iPhone are also on my iPad 2 but are much more convenient and appropriate to use in a business setting.Â Imagine presenting a proposal on your iPhone!Â 😉
If you are a Mac convert Iâ€™d love to hear your story!
