3 Tips for Choosing the Right MacBook® for College, Bend, Oregon

Laptops have become a must for college-bound students and play an important role inside and outside of the classroom. With the wide scope of products available, it can be difficult to know where to begin shopping. Luckily, there are tried-and-true tips to determine what type of laptop is best, so you can be confident you select a MacBook® that meets your needs.

3 Factors to Consider When Choosing a MacBook for College

1. Portability

If you plan on toting your laptop with you to classes and the library, portability is an important factor to consider. Laptops can get heavy, which is why something like a MacBook Air® may be a good choice for an on-the-go student. Keep in mind, however, that with reduced size, you lose operating power.

2. Usability

If you’re studying graphic design, video editing, or something that will require a lot of computer power, a MacBook Pro® or other high-powered laptop is the best choice. They’ll be able to save large files and ensure smooth functionality. They’ll also have superior display systems. You can find many used MacBook options at a discount through a certified refurbished retailer.

3. Operating System

You need an operating system that you’re familiar and comfortable with, and if you have existing subscriptions to software, a laptop should support them. Luckily, Apple® products allow both Windows® and OS X®, so any software can safely run on a MacBook.
