  • Macbook Pro or Macbook Air?

    So, since i accidentally stepped on my laptop and tragically it broke down, i’ve decided to buy a new laptop untill i didn’t and thinking of buying a Mac (because of Garageband and solely because of Garageband).

    I didn’t use a laptop to actually play games on, well sometimes i did, but mostly i only use it for school purposes so i only need a laptop that’ll get the job done

    But since the only Apple product i have is my phone i am completely clueless as to which Macbook is far superior considering its price and whether or not it’ll get the job done, therefore i ask this forum because some of you are a mac user

    edit :
    I did read the difference between the 2 but it gets balls deep into it till i can’t understand it anymore, because all i want is a simple comparison damn it
    tu me manques.

    Macbook air is way better in every regard. The issue with the macbook pro is that unless you're getting the 16 inch ver, it just sucks in everyway. It overheats easily, and only has 2 ports, what kind of pro machine is that? To boot, it costs so much more too.

    My recommendation is to get the macbook air. There are 2 versions to mainly consider, i3 or i5. i3 has 2 cores vs i5 with 4 cores. It depends on what you need. If you're using it just for school, the i3 is more than enough. If you plan to use your laptop for more intensive things (Rendering, video editing in high def) only then you should consider the i5.

    2nd thing, you should try to get an official apple refurbished macbook air. There is practically no difference between a new one and a refurbished one, and its cheaper too. If you want, you can use the extra money to buy other things.

    Also, can I ask if you're interested in other laptops? Macbooks are pretty expensive.

          Ok so If you use a MAC here is my rant on why you shouldn't —> I’m going to start off with Right to Repair... Every Mac or apple product I have ever used has failed, due to poorly thought out designs (Such as Putting the heat exhaust vends next to critical display cables, slowly melting the display from the inside out) to just flat out poor quality, I have never had any apple device that has lasted over a year, and this is with me taking upmost care of these devices. Of course this wouldn't be as much of a problem, if I could get the darn laptop repaired... As of currently Apple will REFUSE to repair any device that is beyond their “Profitability Margins” this includes devices only one model behind the most current model, every time I attempt to take my devices to an Apple Genius Bar I’m as struck with reducullpus claims such as, “It would cost more to repair the device than just replacing it” or “We can’t repair it” the SECOND I take the laptop to a 3rd party repair shop they claim it’s a simple fix or “Oh it’s just the annoying chip that blows whenever you use the laptop” that’s right, certain models of MacBooks I’ve used have just up and EXPLODED! For crying out loud! I’ve had a Note 7 (the phone that’s supposed to explode) and compared to my luck with MacBooks/Apple every, single, time, their products have failed.

          Part 2–> Such a bad Price, ok so Obviously I have stopped buying apple products, however any apple product has a significantly cheaper alternative that is the EXACT SAME THING, or even BETTER than the apple product for a lower price, And yes that includes the easy use operating system of Mac OS except this time it’s a Linux operating system, with significantly more features and freedom, and most if not every windows option is simply a better deal. Also they don’t break like a MacBook, saving you much more money. Also if you NEED Apple OS just make a Hackintosh

          Part 3–> Software limitations, Oh so your telling me that I can’t install more than half of the programs I need on a Mac? Ok then... Oh dang it looks like that nvidia driver is not properly optimized for OPENGL, I guess nothing will run as efficiently on your Mac -_- (Same goes for AMD drivers)

          Part 4 —> The Auto Correct. Apple currently has the worst autocorrect and grammar engine, if you have solely used Apple tour entire life, you most likely won’t recognize how poorly you have been treated with this garbage engine, try some other devices such as google or Microsoft’s option so see what I’m talking about

          Part 5: The finale: Ok so don’t believe me? Don’t believe that Apple completely screws people over?

                  they're pretty top tier in those aspect but I don't think I need to go through an entire long discussion again on a monthly basis on explaining why

                    As somebody who owns a macbook, they are 100% not worth it. If you just need GarageBand than I would get a different laptop and just run MacOS with a virtual machine on it.
