Mac in Business

Every Mac means business.

From notebooks to desktop computers, every Mac is packed with the latest technologies, advanced features and robust security to meet your business needs. It’s never been easier to get more power and productivity for your organisation.

Amazing hardware. Built to perform.

The Mac line‑up has everything your business needs, from notebooks with all-day battery life to powerful desktop computers. And every Mac comes with OS X Mavericks, the world’s most advanced desktop operating system.

Great performance.

Every Mac is made with innovative components that give you smoother graphics, faster storage and great all‑round performance. From the thin and light MacBook Air to the robust and redesigned Mac Pro, each Mac is equipped with fast Intel processors, high‑performance graphics and high‑speed DDR3 memory. No matter which Mac you choose, you get superior performance for just about everything you do in your business.

Fully integrated.

OS X is built to bring out the best in your Mac, so you get a fully integrated system in which the hardware and software work together seamlessly. OS X works with the processor in your Mac to deliver the best possible performance. It works with your super-responsive trackpad so Multi‑Touch gestures feel natural to use. And OS X Mavericks includes energy‑saving technologies to help you get more out of your battery when you’re on the go.

Easy and intuitive.

It’s easy to find, create, share and do just about everything for your business on a Mac. From the desktop you see when you start up a Mac to the applications you use every day at work, it’s all designed to be easy and intuitive. And thanks to iCloud, the apps on your Mac work with the apps on your iOS devices automatically.1 Add a calendar event on your iPhone and it appears on your Mac. Or create an iWork document on your Mac and continue editing it on your iPad.

Advanced OS. Power to the desktop.

OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac and is designed to deliver the most intuitive and integrated computer experience in the world. And now with OS X Mavericks available for free, it’s never been easier to keep your Mac up to date.2

Designed for productivity.

OS X Mavericks offers powerful ways to get work done as efficiently as possible. For example, you have multiple options to organise and find files — whether they’re on your Mac, on a server or in iCloud. Use tags to organise your files, so you can easily find them later by searching or simply clicking a tag in the Finder sidebar. And Mission Control gives you a bird’s‑eye view of all the applications that are running on your system.

Safety built in.

OS X Mavericks is built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation. It’s full of advanced technologies that work together to constantly monitor, encrypt, update — and ultimately keep your Mac more secure. Gatekeeper makes it safer to download and install apps. FileVault safeguards your data using strong encryption. And sandboxing protects your Mac by isolating apps from each other, as well as from your system and your data.

Works with Windows.

A Mac can fit into just about any business environment — including Windows networks. You can easily transfer all the files from your PC to a Mac using Migration Assistant in OS X, work with Microsoft Office documents or run Windows on your Mac with Boot Camp.3 And OS X Mavericks has built-in support for the latest version of Microsoft Exchange Server, so you can keep your email, calendars and contacts all in one place.

Apps made for business. Productivity in every Mac.

OS X Mavericks includes an amazing collection of apps for the things your business needs every day — so you can be even more productive on a Mac from day one.

Powerful apps included.

OS X Mavericks comes with many of the apps you need for work — apps for sending email and messages, managing your schedule and contacts, setting reminders, browsing the web, making video calls and backing up your Mac automatically. And now every Mac includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote, so you can create and share documents, spreadsheets and presentations right from the start.4

Collaboration made easy.

Pages, Numbers and Keynote are the dynamic business applications included in the iWork suite that make sharing and collaborating easy. Share a link to your work via Mail, Messages, Twitter or Facebook. Open and edit Microsoft Office files or export your documents in Word, PowerPoint or Excel formats. And for real-time collaboration, iWork for iCloud beta lets up to 20 people edit the same document at the same time from any Mac or PC browser.

From the Mac App Store.

Discovering, installing and updating apps has never been easier with the Mac App Store, built into OS X Mavericks. Browse apps by category such as Business, Graphics & Design, and Productivity. Or search for something specific. Then just click to download and install within seconds. No more boxes, no more discs, no more time-consuming installation. You can set up automatic updates from the Mac App Store, so you always have the latest version.

Powerful server. Streamlined. Simple. And more advanced than ever.

OS X Server brings more speed, control and collaboration to your organisation — so everyone on your team can work together more effectively. It’s so easy to install, set up and manage, you don’t even need your own IT department.

Simple deployment.

Profile Manager in OS X Server can simplify deploying, configuring and managing Mac systems and iOS devices in your organisation. Create profiles to set up user accounts for Mail, Calendar, Contacts and Messages; configure system settings; enforce restrictions; and set password policies — all from one place. And you can use Profile Manager to distribute apps and books bought via the Volume Purchase Programme for more control over your content.

Secure connection.

Virtual private network (VPN) access enables your offsite users to securely connect to your organisation’s network. OS X Server includes VPN on demand, which allows every Mac to automatically connect to your network and its services securely while also preventing unauthorised access. VPN Server supports L2TP/IPSec and PPTP protocols to provide encryption and remote access for Mac computers, iPad and iPhone devices, and Windows PCs.

Effortless installation.

Caching Server 2 speeds up the download and delivery of content through the App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes Store and iBooks Store by automatically storing purchased content and software updates on a local Mac running OS X Mavericks Server. So your users get faster downloads of content and updates to their Mac and iOS devices directly over your corporate network.
