Technology is always a gamble, particularly when it comes to computers. Each brand has it’s own quirks, some good, some not so good. When shopping for a new laptop, what brands should I look at, and which ones should I avoid?
I converted from a PC to a Mac in 2006, and haven't looked back since. I think the 15" MacBook Pro is best. 15 inches is the best of both worlds between 13" and 17". It is light enough to carry around with you, but has a big enough screen too. Unlike the MacBook Air, it also has USB and CD ports. Macs are better for video content, gaming, and graphics overall, and with more people streaming tv on their computer, that is even more important than before.
I used to work in the information technology field in a call centre. I spent my days talking people through fixing their problems on windows machines. I knew windows pretty well, and sued to play with my windows computers at home as well. When a Mac user used to call in, it was dreadful, mostly because I didn't know what I was doing. When my wife and I got into photography, we were told Mac was the way to go, hands down. Now I'm a complete convert, I have one windows machine in my home which I use for gaming, but my primary computer is a Macbook pro which I think is the best brand of laptop. I only turn on my windows machine if I absolutely have to.
The MacBook Pro 13-Inch with Retina display combines strong performance with long endurance and a best-in-class display. Starting at $1,299, this laptop provides an eye-popping 2560 x 1600-pixel Retina display with stunning colours that are good enough for artists and media mavens alike. A 4th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and blazing-fast Flash storage drive make the MacBook Pro with Retina display a speed demon, while lightweight, and 9.5 hours of battery life let's you carry it all day.
