Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (September 2009): Yael Markovich

Welcome to Macenstein‘s “Mac Chick of the Month”. Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely Yael Markovich, an Israeli model who just happens to be a die-hard Mac Chick!

Born in Israel to a Polish father and a Syrian/Turkish mother it is easy to see where Yael gets her exotic looks from but converse with her and you will find out that she is not only beautiful but extremely intelligent (as evidenced by her love of Apple gear!

As Yael finishes her semester in college she explains why she chose a degree in Business. ” I never liked working for others and a Business degree gives me the freedom to be an independent contractor…letting me manage my finances and set my own schedule.”

Yael moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a makeup artist but shifted her career path when a photographer by the name of John Graf thought Yael should be in front of the camera as opposed to behind the scenes. Yael agreed to a photoshoot and ever since then has been modeling full time.

“My first Apple product was an iPod shuffle 1 GB, I remember thinking this is a great invention! but then the iPhone came out and I knew it was official…it was the greatest invention yet!”

“I was used to using a PC and granted it took me a couple of weeks to learn the Mac software but it was well worth it!

    She a beautiful lady, love her look!!!!!!!

  12. Batman says:

    Quick – Hand me the pliers! No not those… the Zircon Encrusted ones!

  13. Brando says:

    Yael, you’re super sexy!
    I like the shot with the “moving hair”, very dynamic.

  14. Bjarki Gudjonsson says:

    Pretty hot. But picture number 2 isn’t very flattering. Her eyes are all crooked. Look at it for too long and your brain starts to melt.

  15. Loweded Wookie says:

    She has eyes? 🙂

    Pic 3 is by far and away the best.

  16. Laky says:

    WOW, beautiful

  17. Connor says:

    Excellent idea for the stickers! Will be trying that tonight, although, i feel a swift backhand to face from my wife is imminent,

  18. Alonso says:

    Beautiful!! i love her!! …
    Hey Doc you should make a MCotM wallpaper for iphone..

  19. Excellent. And I just received two stickers with my Snow Leopard disc. 🙂

  20. Dave Goldstein says:

    I’ve seen a fair number of Israeli girls before. She’s pretty close to the best.

  21. John says:

    Pic 6 – Is she perhaps using the iSight camera to reconfirm to herself how awesome her backside is? I can cover that job and she won’t have to worry about lower back strain.

  22. Stephen says:

    Oy Vey indeed!

  23. YAEL says:

    thank you everyone for being so sweet with your comments! 🙂 a special thank you to Doc for contacting Mike (my manager) and making me Miss September!


  24. Daniel says:

    What a beautiful to accent a Mac! 🙂
    Mr. Jobs could really sell iPhones with help with ladies like Yael.

  25. Will says:

    Wow…. this is really cool! You know what would be really great, I wish there was an iPhone app or something to get updates on this.

  26. Overtkill says:
