Commentary

 

Buy an Apple product to run the Apple OS.  HP does not build a computer for Apple Operating System.  Too bad in a way, although it would no doubt irritate Apple.  Hate to see a company that large in a bad mood.  Smiling.  

 

HP does have a working relationship with Apple and supports a number of specialty programs that run on Apple flavored products, including print software applications.

 

How to get "close" to the Apple Experience on a Non-Apple computer:

 

In the event that you are interested, Apple OSx is "Unix flavored".

 

Linux is the flavor of Unix for the masses (those of us not running old server farms).

 

HP computers, many of them, support installing Linux.

 

 

Linux is not Apple OSx -- know that you need to understand what you are about when installing and using Linux.  Linux requires a bit more "hands on" experience.  There are distributions of Linux for various skill sets -- some Linux distros are easier to use than others.  You might get your choice of Desktop Manager, too:  KDE or GNOME.
