Mac the power to make things happen
Mac has been empowering the world’s leading engineers, artists, scientists, designers and musicians for decades. And it’s been doing the same for students too. Because it’s packed with power for their most ambitious ideas.
High-performance graphics and processors, advanced storage and memory, and a breathtaking Retina display all come together to run pro-level apps for any passion.
The best build and high performance
The high-resolution Retina Display on Mac is great for students who need the extra screen space for big projects, and the clarity to fine-tune even the smallest detail.
That’s essential if they demonstrate an interest in things like graphic design, engineering or video editing.
With high-performance processors, cutting-edge graphics and super-fast Flash storage, Mac has the power to create and move massive project files and simultaneously run multiple pro-level apps. And all that power is encased in an incredibly thin and light design, so students and teachers can get work done almost anywhere.
Mac puts unprecedented performance into an impossibly thin design, yet still provides all-day battery life — up to 10 hours. So teachers and students are free to keep building, designing, developing or composing, without being tethered to the closest power socket.
Keyboard and Trackpad
The full-size backlit keyboard is incredibly comfortable and precise for writing and coding. Unlike other notebooks, the spacious Force Touch trackpad on a Mac lets you click anywhere. And it knows what you want it to do based on intuitive gestures like pinch-to-zoom and subtle differences in pressure.
Apps to get students started. And apps to take them further
Every Mac comes with powerful apps for productivity and creativity built in. The Mac App Store has thousands of additional apps designed specifically for education. And professional apps for everything from video editing to CAD illustration work beautifully on Mac.
Turn a passion project into a full‑on production
Mac gives students more opportunities to grow professional skill sets. Apple-designed apps like Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X are great for video editors and musicians. And qualifying institutions can get them at a special price. For coders, there’s Xcode for building their very own apps. And third-party apps like Microsoft Office, Photoshop and AutoCAD work beautifully on Mac too.
Built-in Apps Ready to craft, calculate, communicate or illustrate.
Every Mac comes ready to create with Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie, GarageBand and Photos. Book reports and essays look stunning. Spreadsheets become canvasses for visualising data. Students have a creative studio to explore and present any idea. And teachers have everything they need to craft creative assignments and beautiful materials.
Thousands more options to explore
The Mac App Store makes it simple to browse and discover thousands more apps from education software developers, so students and teachers can dive deeper into almost any subject.
Run with ideas across all devices
Mac does a lot. And when students use it with other Apple devices, it does even more. They can snap a photo on their iPhone or start an idea on an iPad, and pick it up on a Mac to make it even richer. iCloud safely stores all of their documents, apps and projects, keeping them up to date, secure and accessible from any authorised Apple device.
Apple creates products designed to inspire the minds of teachers and students.
With Norrcom and Apple in the hands of students, they have the tools to excite and challenge. Students love iPads and Macs as it works and excites.
