Todays Mac notebooks come with dozens of valuable features for mobile business users, from automated network connections to state-of-the-art security features.
With Intel processors in the MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, the Mac or PC issue has become irrelevant: With software tools like Boot Camp integrated into Leopard you can run Windows XP or Vista at native speed on your Mac. And third-party utilities like Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion allow you to use Windows applications alongside your Mac apps without restarting your computer*.
Of course, theres no shortage of stable, reliable business software, such as Apples iWork suite, which features Keynote presentation software, Pages word processor and Numbers spreadsheet application; Microsoft Office for Mac, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Entourage for mail; accounting apps like MYOB Accounting, Personal Accountz or Hansa FirstOffice Start; database applications such as FileMaker Pro; and design and web tools like Adobe Creative Suite 3, and other essentials.
Since Macs strive to adhere to common standards, its easy to establish Bluetooth, Ethernet, FireWire and USB connections, join networks and get online with or without wires.
