It is a great personal computer. Went with the touch bar and 256gb because it was on sale. Definitely go with more storage because nowadays to back up your phone you will need at least 128gb. The color displays are great and the machine can run multiple apps at once without a hitch. The USB attachment is sold separately though I feel that for the price it should have been included because the attachment is not cheap and you need it since there is nowhere to plug in you phone or iPad if you are a cables person but I see how they are pushing their cloud.
This is the first Mac that I have used. I have only ever had a Lenovo and was skeptical to switch to apple despite having all other apple devices. I wasn't sure if I wanted to take the chance on hating it (since its so expensive) just to have the added perks of all of my devices connecting together. However, after hearing enough good reviews from friends I decided to switch and it was the best decision! It is such a nice computer. I love the slimness of it as well as the speed and applications. It sure is nice to have all of my devices connected together as well! I would say that the only downside is how expensive it was but I would have to say that it is worth it.
I bought the new 2019 macbook pro with touch bar. I have a windows 10 laptop with much higher specs but this mac never feels slow and weak in terms of performance as compared to it. Its a solid performer for everyday usage. you will never be disappointed in playing back any type of media, little video editing and some games and office work. solid machine.
as this machine as only two 2 usb c ports, i bought a usb c hub to plug external monitor or normal usb drives, but hardly used it. It has got usb c charging so it can be charged with compatible charges and even power banks, perfect machine for those long drives and vacations. easily gives me 8+hrs of backup on battery in normal office products and working for office. Tight integration between apple products is another positive.
my previous 2011 mac air is still functioning like new, and hope to get few good years with this powerhouse as well.
I switched from using a windows laptop to buying an Apple MacBook Pro. I researched it carefully and the advantages outweighed the disadvantages. I was so disappointed in my last laptop purchase only 2 YEARS AGO (slow processor, laptop freezing, constantly calling Geek Squad, etc), I decided to invest in a RELIABLE laptop that had great reviews. There was a bit of a learning curve going from Windows to IOS, but that's what's getting me excited about this laptop. It's quick and the storage is more than sufficient for home use (256gb). So far, this is the BEST laptop purchase that is worth every penny!
The operating system on macs are unmatched. It was extremely easy to learn and is able to handle multiple programs at a time. It has been a lifesaver through nursing school. The only thing I can say is if it’s not placed on a hard surface, it will get very hot. Do not place it on your lap for extended periods of time. The touchbar is tailored specifically for whatever page or application you are using. It’s very convenient for things like Spotify or safari. Overall it was worth every penny.
I was very nervous about purchasing a MacBook Pro since I’ve been using an HP laptop the past few years. However, since teachers use MacBooks in many schools I wanted to give it a try! I really like my Pro and highly recommend it. It’s very fast and quiet. Also, I was able to adjust very quickly to the operating system. I am very happy with my purchasing since I saved $200 during the back to school sale.
A:AnswerIt has a more powerful processor (2.4 ghz vs 1.4) and 4 thunderbolt 3 usb c Ports instead of 2. Turbo boost brings the processor speeds to nearly identical standards so now that the lower end models have a Touch Bar, the only difference that would be noticeable to the average person is the amount of ports
A:AnswerI would go with a MacBook Air, Kaity. If you’re mostly doing online courses and web browsing, the Air is more than sufficient. The Pro would be useful if you’re in a photography or online video editing class that would require more power. Good luck and have fun in college!
A:AnswerI bought the Pro because I could. My cousin has the Air and he’s an Economics major, he says Air does everything he needs it to. Ultimately, you should write down everything that you would need to use, and see if both computers are able to do what you need it to do. Both are reliable and sturdy. The Pro just has more “cool” features.
