New ABA book offers guidance for a switch from Windows to Mac

As technological trends change and features such as usability, reliability and security become even more important, lawyers and law practices are contemplating a switch from Windows to Mac operating systems.

The new book “Macs in Law: The Definitive Guide for the Mac-Curious, Windows-Using Attorney,” is a resource for any lawyer who wonders whether Macs might be a good fit for their legal practice. It answers specific questions about running a Mac-based law practice and offers a step-by-step action plan for switching to Macs.
