If you’re in the market for a used MacBook®, you might be torn between a few different models. While you may initially narrow your choice down by size, there’s far more to making the right choice when exploring the world of Apple® products. Here’s how to determine the best laptop for your needs.
As used MacBook computers go, few compare in quality to the Air. This model is a favorite among high-schoolers and college students who favor its thin silhouette and light weight.
Up until 2017, the Air featured an 11- or 13-inch screen, but Apple introduced a revamped, higher-powered model in 2018 that discontinued the smaller size. Older models feature standard USB 3.0 ports, making it easy to plug in anything from a wireless mouse to an external hard drive.
The 12-inch MacBook is a reliable option if you find that the 11-inch screen of pre-2018 Air models just isn’t large enough, but the 13-inch seems a bit too large. This offers the ideal middle ground and is housed in a sleek aluminum case.
Among its greatest advantages are its high-resolution screen and its Core m3 processor. Unlike other models, the 12-inch MacBook doesn’t have a cooling fan, so it operates relatively quietly. If you’re a student or a professional who requires something lightweight for general purposes, this is an ideal choice for its simplicity and portability.
Those who work in creative industries or who simply want a more robust used MacBook might favor the Pro. It features an LED-backlit display that provides crisp, clear, high-resolution imagery. That makes it especially appealing to graphic designers, video editors, photographers, and filmmakers.
Brand-new models of the Pro are available in both 13-inch and 16-inch sizes with elite processing speed, while older models packed the same punch with 13-, 15-, and 17-inch sizes. No matter what Pro you choose, expect it to be slightly weightier than the Air, but it will still feel light and slender enough to carry with ease.
