This week on Reasons Why… we’re going to address something that many will have missed. It’s time to buy a new laptop and the question arises whether we want to buy a Mac. Should we get a MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air? That has one that doesn’t have the other and can tip the balance. We’ll try to look at these aspects in three simple sections.
The first and most obvious reason to buy a MacBook Air is weight. At a very low weight, we have a good performance team. Because MacBook Air ushers in a new era of ultrabooks – thin laptops that don’t compromise on traditional laptop specifications. MacBook Air weighs from 5 pounds to 5 pounds, depending on the model.
A design that is groundbreaking and does not leave you indifferent. Apple’s product caused a break with traditional design and that wedge image has caused a trend. Many other brands have made notebooks of similar design following Apple’s master hand seeking to match and improve it. MacBook Air is only 17 millimeters thick at its most prominent part.
Price. With a starting price of ?1075 and a ceiling of ?1588, although more expensive than similar competing computers, it’s a significant savings when it comes to buying a computer compared to its big brother, which has prices ranging from ?1281 to ?2079 for the MacBook Pro with a Retina display.
Specifications If you’re looking for a powerful computer to use for resource-intensive work, you’ll want a MacBook Pro. The new range of Intel processors ensures a computer that’s ready to handle the most demanding tasks. RAM, which can be expanded to 16GB, is also a highlight. And all in a signature design that’s both sober and elegant.
Screen. Compared to the MacBook Air display, the MacBook Pro offers more possibilities. And I’m not just talking about inches, which range from 13 inches to 15 inches. The main advantage is that you can get a MacBook Pro with a Retina display, whether it’s a 13- or 15-inch screen. The resolution of 2560 by 1600 to 227 pixels per inch for the 3-inch MacBook Pro or the native resolution of the 15-inch MacBook Pro, at 2880 by 1800 to 220 pixels per inch, makes the display experience entirely new.
Possibility of expansion of its components. The architecture of MacBook Pro allows us to modify the different components. So while we may find, for example, that we have 256GB of disk storage, this can be expanded to 768GB, something unthinkable on MacBook Air. The same goes for RAM. These are just three points, in my opinion, where one product stands out from the other. Surely there are many more, and it should always be the user who, when purchasing or taking possession of one, values different aspects such as the use it will be given, the price, the possibilities it offers or the design, and consequently makes a decision.
