Apple looks set to continue its reign as the designer of computing products that consumers love, and that CIOs love to hate. We understand. With many of your core enterprise applications optimized for the Windows OS, you may not even have enough Apple experts on staff to help support the demand from your workers to bring new iPhones and iPads into the workplace, let alone consider accommodating products such as the MacBook Air. But, as Apple continues to win over consumer hearts and minds, you'll need to be prepared for the day when your CEO wanders over and asks, "Why aren't we using this?." With that in mind, here are the 10 Apple products you'll need to evaluate this year.

All this talk of iPads and iPhones misses one important point: in order to evaluate those products, you'll need to also take a look at their operating system. And that software, iOS 5, is considered more enterprise-friendly than any of the previous Apple mobile platforms, and well ahead of its Android competitors in that regard. It's no BlackBerry OS, of course, but it's worth another look.
