Why Should You Buy a Macbook?
You must be here to learn why a MacBook and a Windows at the first preference? To understand that, let’s take two steps behind and let me introduce you to myself. I am a freelancer cum student and to meet both of these targets, my laptop is the sole companion. Attending top-class online tutorials to completing freelance assignments, all I do use my favorite laptop. Well, this is my second laptop as the previous Windows PC dragged to the repair shop a couple of times, but in vain. So, today I came up with three great reasons why you should buy a Macbook.
Wait, are you a Windows user? Cool..no problem, this article might help you the answers to the problem that might have troubled you so long. But no more! Let’s dive in.
MacBook Vs Windows Notebook
Apple always makes the right assumptions about its software, but with Microsoft, it’s not often
Though it is subjective to use MS’ software on a MacBook, it makes interference, trying to assume what you are trying or doing to keep yourself one step ahead. However, at times, it gets really annoying to entertain such interventions in the middle of any serious task or show time. For example, if you start writing a bullet point by using the “1” icon, the consecutive “2” icon automatically appears as you shift to the next paragraph, even if it’s not needed there. So, this is what happens, and most people end up consuming more time in undoing things than working straight to the point. In that case, I would say Microsoft is a real mess not to go with.
Mac OS upgrade is always simple, Microsoft keeps its complicated
Apple takes its users directly to its latest Mac OS updates for free. Talking about Windows, they can’t even keep the version names similar to each other, their naming scheme for each version is different from the other, like Windows: 7, 8, XP, 10, Vista, CE, NT, 98, and 2000. In actual sense, their scattered naming approach matches the varied approach to their operating system (Windows).
Microsoft is for tech-tinkering people, Apple is for those who are solely committed to getting the task done
Well, the fact of the matter that back-end, server-infrastructure managed well by Microsoft is true indeed. It is, however, to the tech-geeks who love spending hours tinkering with their PC and laptop, to know more about the settings and customizations. Those people are fanatic to front end Windows as they are already aware of the intricacies of the PC system. On the contrary, Apple isn’t that big in the IT world. But that’s fine because the front end UI of Apple doesn’t need its users to be necessarily tech-savvy to get things done.
If an error occurs or something goes wrong
Microsoft creates and develops the software. Sony, HP, Dell, or seemingly lakhs of other PC manufacturers, make the device (i.e. Windows PC). Then there are these third-party drivers and other counterparts required for all the peripherals. When something goes wrong or an issue appears, everyone ends up pointing fingers at each other. When the same with Mac, the issue stays within Apple itself. That means the brand is undeniably committed to its users at both ups and downs.
MacBook Air Vs MacBook Pro
Which is bigger: MacBook Air or MacBook Pro?
The debut of MacBook Air in the market became a success for its sleek design. However, both the Pro and Air editions are light enough to be easily carried around. The ultra-lightweight of the Air edition weighs only around 2.75 pounds, whereas the 13-inch Pro weighs about 3.02 pounds. Yet, you will be surprised to know that the latter is way slimmer (i.e. 0.59 inches) than MacBook Air which is 0.61 inches wider.
Which is more powerful: MacBook Air or Pro?
If you compare both Air and Pro from the entry-level machines’ perspective, they closely resemble each other. MacBook Air comes with a 1.6-GHz 8th generation Intel Core i5 Central Processing Unit. MacBook Pro comes with a 2.3-GHz 7th generation dual-core Intel Core i5 Central Processing Unit. Both the MacBook editions include 8GB RAM standard and 128 GB SSD, plus both include the Retina display feature.
MacBook Air or Pro: Which one to buy?
As MacBook Pro is capable of upgrading to a level higher than MacBook Air, most consumers prefer buying Pro to Air. Well, that’s just a generalized view. MacBook Air is yet an excellent device too.
If your objective is simply to buy a good looking Apple laptop, go online, check out the latest editions, compare and buy one. There is no point in shelling out for buying Pro if you are not a professional. Pro is best for handling rigorous heavy official tasks to deal on a daily basis. If you are still a student or a casual user, go for MacBook Air; only the hardcore web designing professionals and programmers should go for the high-end MacBook Pro.
Best for Coding & Programming: MacBook or Windows Notebook?
Mac Build Quality
MacBook is easier to get repaired compared to Windows Notebook, as the former can be easily diagnosed and the issue can be spotted out via its inbuilt software. With Windows, be ready to spend in its repair, and still you couldn’t expect anything fruitful. Well, that was my personal experience with Windows, don’t know what about others. That is the reason, developers, generally, don’t take such risks at the job place and prefer MacBook. The other good thing is that with a MacBook, you won’t have to often worry about any future technical issue. The job of a software developer is quite stressful and needs constant focus throughout the coding and MacBook offers that privilege.
With Mac OS X, you can run all the major OS on your MacBook. This is a huge benefit for the programmers. Conversely, working with Windows PC, running OS X would be quite difficult. It will be only possible if you have the hacked OS X version installed on your Windows PC. Mac has the advantage of running both Linux and Windows in a virtual environment.
The benefit of cross-platform capability is that during programming, you will get a number of tools that are only available on Windows. Whereas, the rest of others are available only on Mac OS X. This is where the need of being able to switch among different OS platforms steps in. That is why, according to most programmers, MacBook is the preferred flexible choice for hassle-free programming.
Well, that was all. Hope this helps you to decide and pick the right one that suits your business or other purposes accordingly.
