Buying a New or Used Mac


When you are in the market for a new computer, there are a lot of different factors that can make your choice difficult. Once you decide on a brand, you still have to decide whether you want a desktop or laptop. Finally, you must decide how new, how fast, and what size you need your new computer to be.

To accommodate the spike in demand caused by the growing popularity of laptops over the last few years, Apple has expanded their laptop offerings. Currently, there are three different Mac laptops available: the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

If you are struggling to make a decision between one of these notebooks, make a list of priorities. Do you want the cheapest computer? Or is the weight more important to you? Are you a graphic design artist and need more storage or power? Once you have your list together, you will have an easier time choosing between the three different types.

To help give you a better idea of what each machine has to offer, we have broken down what each model brings to the table.


I call these "entry level" Mac laptops. They are fast, lightweight and well made, without the sticker shock of the MacBook Pro


At the time when the MacBook Air was released, it was the world’s thinnest notebook. The ultraportable laptop was marketed to the person on the go. Both business professionals and students appreciated the new design, which prioritized portability, making it convenient for travel and carrying to class.

The MacBook Air comes in both 11-inch and 13-inch options, with different built-in configurations. The model also stands out from the rest of the other ultraportable notebook computers due to its long battery life, fast flash storage, and light weight (under 3 lbs.).


If you consider yourself more of a power user, the MacBook Pro might be the best option for you. Currently available in both 13 and 15-inch options, the MacBook Pro is the highest-end model from Apple’s lineup of notebook computers.

Depending on your priorities and requirements, one of these MacBook models will be able to fulfill your needs. According to your preferences on price, weight and configurations you will be able to find the perfect Apple notebook that is the best fit for you.
