Making the Switch: PC to Mac® Computer

Thinking about making the switch from a PC computer to a Mac computer?

Experimac knows this can be a big decision. Whether you’re making the switch because you are looking for a more reliable operating system or you prefer the beautiful design of Mac computers, here at Experimac, we want to help you make the best choices for your own individual needs and style. We can help with your PC to Mac computer migration from beginning to end.

Planning to Make the Move

Once you’ve decided to make the switch from a PC to a Mac computer, it’s good to become familiar with the Mac software, OS®, as soon as possible. You can easily do this by stopping by an Experimac location close to you. The best way to become acquainted with your new Mac computer is by exploring and experimenting. Come by and ask one of our highly trained team members to assist you in learning how to use a Mac computer. As intimidated as you may feel in the beginning, know that it gets easier the more you use it. One example of a difference you might notice right away is the method for accessing shortcuts; you will be using the ⌘ key on a Mac computer instead of the PC’s CTRL button.

Variated Applications

PC and Mac computers utilize different applications. You do have the option of running Windows® on your Mac computer, however, we recommend taking advantage of the applications available to you as a Mac user. There are products that enable you to easily move from Mac computers to Windows-based computers, such as Adobe® Creative Cloud®. However, that is not the case for most applications. Because viruses don’t often target OS® software, Mac computers aren’t offered the same variety of anti-virus software. This could be a problem depending on your business and plans for use of your Mac computer. You may also lose some applications you’ve purchased with your PC, so it’s a good idea to speak with a member of our sales team to find out more on how you can make the switch stress free.

Data Migration

Making the switch from a PC to a Mac computer may mean you need to migrate data. There are several different tools and ways to transfer your data from your PC to your Mac computer. Shop our pre-owned Mac computers in store and we’ll be more than happy to help you migrate all of your data to your new laptop or computer, no questions asked.
