3 Factors College Students Should Consider When Shopping for a MacBook®, Highland Village, Texas

A high-quality laptop is a crucial piece of equipment for college students. Since Apple® makes some of the best computers on the market, their wide range of MacBook® laptops includes options for everyone, from students who just write term papers to power users going into film or graphic design. Here are a few factors to consider when shopping for a used MacBook laptop for the new term.

What You Should Think About When Choosing a MacBook

1. Portability

Many college students use their laptops to take notes, so you might wind up taking your computer to every class. All MacBook computers are extremely light and portable, but the base model is the smallest of them all, weighing in at just over two pounds. While this model does feature excellent retina display, despite the smaller screen, it may not have the power for more intensive projects like graphic design, so consider a MacBook Pro®.

2. Price

The MacBook Air® is the most economical model in the Apple lineup, offering more power and a wider range of ports than the standard MacBook. However, it is a little heavier and doesn’t feature the sharp retina display you’ll find on the other models.

3. Performance

The 13-inch MacBook Pro boasts powerful dual processors, giving it the power to handle almost any project. If you need a truly high-performance machine, however, then consider the 15-inch version, with its quad-core processors and expanded, crystal-clear display. Although it’s the heaviest laptop in the Apple lineup, it’s also the most powerful.
