Mac for forensic

Active Member

Actually I use win, for some tasks linux. 

My activity in forensic is changing in the past years ton of forensic copies of pc or phone. Now I do analysis of webapp and java source code auditing. I thinking to buy a Mac. What do you think about this idea?

Is mac usefully on forensic?

yes macbook is a good idea. You can make some partitions with the system for example kalilinux. Before choosing macbook check models because new macbooks have problems with temperature and fans are very loud and are susceptible to hardware damage.
I have been using the Macbook for several years and I recommend it!

Can't say I can ever recommend Apple laptops/desktop PC's for doing forensic investigations. Having some kind of Apple OS can be useful for purely investigating Apple operating system devices.

If you are simply doing code reviews and need to be more mobile, try a high end Dell or Lenovo laptop. If portability is not as much of a concern a mobile workstation from either of these is more powerful than Macbooks all day long.
