I have always been an apple fan for a long time, i have waited for 6yrs to get my hands on a macbook pro, at first i was very skeptical, i built a custom PC to act as a "game rig", and it turned out amazing, price was double but totally worth it! It handled everything i through at it games, word processing for my side business at the time, editing of my pics and videos off my go pro, and it was lightning fast Core i7 extreme liquid cooled, 2TB HDD raid, 32gb of DDR4 Ram, Nvidia GTX 1080TI, 256GB SSD (for OS), ASUS R.O.G Maximus MotherBoard, 42in 4k LG curved monitor. Windows OS 10, Again i built this computer for a purpose to play games!!, I was thinking of going with a mobile (gaming PC) i.e. Asus, MSI, Alienware, but realized they were so big and bulky, picture like caring around a desktop everywhere you go, i sat down and thought to myself what is going to be the soul purpose of my laptop, to play games?.....Well no i built my desktop for that....word processing?...Yea every computer and tablet can do that now days....criuse the web?....well yea my tablet and phone are good enough for that....then i figured it out....i wanted something to handle a little of everything!....but not extreme...lightweight for ease of travel to and from class/work then i saw this macbook sitting there for display at my local bestbuy, i now thought wow price is doubled of a PC, Lightweight, powerful duel core i5 Processor Duo's are more stable for everyday use in my professional opinion, Quad cores are pointless, after a test you will see that quad cores don't even hit all the cores, at full load they will but at basic use they will only use 2, and some of the 8th gen duo's, have faster speeds with the boost feature then the i5 quads!, All-in-all i decided to go with my mac 13in i5 after seeing the beautiful display, ultra portable design, really bright backlight keyboard, and amazing touchpad!, for the price point of this small but powerful machine, very much worth it!, i will be using it for online schooling, picture and video editing with my go pro, and help with my new job. Don't let the HDD size trick you!!! Buy a portable HDD for mass storage and use google drive for everything else!! Computers don't NEED hdd space to function!! Take it from me just being honest!, I hope this honest review helps people out like some did for me i am big on real life reviews and specific ones as well, i will be doing a video review soon! Will update when it is up.
