Summary
  • The IBM PS-2 Model 25 and the Apple Macintosh SE are compared on the basis of versatility and user friendliness. Although Model 25 is aimed at the education market, it is fine as a business machine. Even though documentation and starting users' tutorial are geared toward child level, it is suitable for secretaries, CEOs and other infrequent users. It comes with a space-saving keyboard. A regular keyboard is available for $45. The mouse, however, is sluggish and unresponsive. the Macintosh ingratiates the user immediately with its interactive Mac tour. Here the mouse is quick and responsive, while the keyboard feels small. Again, a normal size keyboard is available. The SE is a strong machine with an increasingly large selection of business software. The ideal machine for business would be a combination of the SE and the IBM PS-2.
