“Later this year, we’ve got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple.”

These words were said by Apple’s senior vice president, Eddy Cue just last month. Sitting in our office in New York City, the gang at Turnkey Office Space got to thinking – what are the best Apple products? The mega-corporation has produced so many with such speed and grandeur over the last quarter of century, it’s difficult to really consider what are an office’s most vital Apple devices and computers. Fortunately we were able to concoct a succinct yet comprehensive list of the most intuitive and intelligent Apple gadgets and contraptions.

1. Mac 128K. After an embarrassing failure with the Apple III, the Mac 128K had its promotional debut in a commercialduring the 1984 Superbowl. The sarcastically somber tagline “You’ll see why 1984 won’t be like ‘1984’” swayed thousands of consumers to rush to their local tech stores and drop a whopping $2,495 on this beige, boxy critter.

2. iMac. From 1998 to 2003 we graced our desks with these translucent gum drop-esque machines. They came in a variety of “flavors” – from Bondi Blue to Tangerine to Flower Power. Today the iMac has a totally different reputation than it did 10 years ago. The 6th generation iMac features a 5mm thick edge and full lamination, a process that minimizes the gap between the LCD panel and the glass, thus eliminating reflection from the screen. The latest iMac is 97% more energy efficient than the original version, and uses just .9 watt of electricity in sleep mode.

3. iPad Air. iPads have a great, natural command for business activities. The set of preinstalled apps streamline projects, presentations, and data in a way that many computers can’t. Keynote allows you to easily create beautiful and inventive presentations, Pages helps you generate powerful and illustrative reports, and Numbers lets you track and compile data by using tables and graphs. We chose the iPad Air over the traditional iPad because of its improved design and new front facing camera which features face detection and backside illumination.

4. iPhone. It would be weird if we didn’t include the iPhone on this list! The all-in-one phone, computer, organizer, GPS, camera etc… is an office’s no.1 lifeline. We made it number 4 because the monthly bill is a bit of a drag, but all of its resources make it a must-have.
