  4. 4, 8, 12, or 16GB RAM? Why RAM is important.

    RAM stores information that your computer can quickly access, however, once the software is closed it gets deleted. Usually the more RAM a computer has to process information, there is an improvement in system performance.

    If you're looking for a Mac to browse the internet, write documents and create spreadsheets, 4GB RAM would be perfect for your needs. Software such as Microsoft Office and internet browsers don't use a lot of RAM space so you can multi-task across different software without seeing any slowdown in your Mac's speed.

    On the other hand, if you are using the Adobe suite or other powerful software to edit photos and videos or create digital art, it is recommended to have 8GB or more. This type of creative software takes up a lot of RAM space and is recalled by the Mac a lot, so 4GB would cause a slowdown in your Mac's speed and

  5. Time to upgrade your phone.

    We have just released four different Apple iPhones ready for next day delivery. But why would you want to purchase a refurbished phone...and from MacTwo?

    All the newly released phones are of Grade A quality, this means there's only slight wear and tear with no problems with the overall phone to distract you from the high-quality of iPhones. Combine this with great savings such as the iPhone 6s Plus 128GB that is available for £324 off (50% off) buying the phone brand new, you really are getting a bargain.

    Products available on MacTwo (besides brand new products) go through various testing and are ensured they are ready to be released. This process includes a 50-point pre-sales checklist to ensure the device is wiped of all data, set to factory default and is ready to use straight away. Plus if you ar

  6. Dual or Quad-core processor? Should you get more cores?

    Quad-core processors are not twice as fast dual-core processors. Let's get that out of the way. What a quad-core processor can do is multi-task more effectively than a dual-core processor could do.

    If you are going to be using your Mac to swap between different software a lot and run multiple software that requires processing power, the quad-core processors such as Intel Core i5 2nd generation (i5-2xxx) and above will suit your needs.

    A lot of modern software can take advantage of quad-core processors such as an internet browser. Google Chrome's internet browser runs faster and can handle more background tabs before slowing the Mac down. If you are going to be working with large spreadsheets or editing multiple documents, you will also see a speed increase over a dual-core processor.

    Dual-core processors should not be mocked, if you are goi

  7. macOS: It's why the Mac experience is unique.

    Looking to upgrade your Mac or stepping in to the Mac experience for the first time, you will come across macOS High Sierra (free upgrade for all users on eligible Macs). Designed specifically for the Mac, it lets you do things other computers simply can't do.

    Out of the box, macOS comes with the entire suite of Apple apps, iCloud storage, and even lets your Mac talk to your iPhone. Don't worry though, Apple prioritises privacy and security at all times when creating their macOS.

    Easy to use

    macOS High Sierra is designed to work the way you expect it to with intuitive controls - from finding your documents to having your apps automatically update themselves. Whatever you choose to do on your Mac, there's less to learn and more to accomplish.

    Connect your devices

    Your Mac works with all your other Apple devices in ways no other computer can. Want to copy text or image from your iPad, you can paste it
