Refurbished Macbook Pros for Accounting

 

Refurbished Macbook Pros have plenty of power to handle most accounting applications and bookkeeping. GainSaver has a wide selection of refurbished Macbook Pros with Intel i3, i5 and i7 processors. If you have really large data files, then you'll want to get one with a Quad Core i7 processor to get the best performance.

 

If you sometimes need to meet clients at their offices, a Macbook Pro can be easily taken with you. When you use it on your own desk, you can attach an external keyboard and mouse along with an external monitor, and your refurbished Macbook Pro becomes a desktop computer. An external keyboard may also be preferred for data entry, since an external keyboard will give you an extended keypad. This makes data entry more convenient.

 

If you are going to use the Macbook Pro screen, and not an external display, you'll want to get a 15-inch Macbook Pro for the additional screen space. Consider getting a Retina display on your refurbished Macbook Pro, and you'll be able to see much more data on the screen than using a Macbook Pro without the Retina display.

 

The Retina display really makes a huge difference, especially since you will be doing close work on the screen all day.

You can go with either a 21-inch or a 27-inch iMac. This is largely a matter of preference. The bigger screen size will make it a lot easier to read back the numbers you enter. If you have clients who are looking at the screen from a distance, they will also be able see better.

 

Refurbished iMacs at GainSaver come in a wide range of processor types and speeds. As with Macbook Pros, shop for Intel i7 Quad Core processors to get the fastest number crunching speeds.

 

Refurbished Mac Pros for accounting

A refurbished Mac Pro could be the best choice for your accounting service if you need to maintain extremely large spreadsheets with dozens of linked files and complex formulas. You'll also find that charting and graphing your financial data on a refurbished Mac Pro is practically instantaneous.

 

One other advantage of a refurbished Mac Pro is that you can have GainSaver install additional internal hard drives for you that can boost data storage capacity to many terabytes.

And finally, if you are considering a dual operating system with Mac OS and Windows installed on the same computer, a refurbished Mac Pro can't be beat for speed and affordability. You'll be able to run your accounting software on either platform, and quickly switch from one to the other. For pure power, a refurbished Mac Pro is a real bargain.
