“I get asked this a lot, Dean……why use a MacBook?
But time has taught me that the coolest response is WHY NOT?
It is the safest when it comes to defence against Virus attack and no doubt I have turned more heads walking into a meeting. Fine I agree, it is pricey… but so is a Ferrari. – Dean (Software developer at PlanetNest)
Plot twist, an Alabama based self-acclaimed “Machinist”, Chris Sevier, who married his MacBook is suing state officials for refusing to recognize the wedding.
How awesome is the computer that it can surpass the love and companion of a Man or Woman?
The MacBook family is a brand of Macintosh laptop computers by Apple that merged the PowerBook ,and iBook lines during Apple’s transition to Intel processors.
From the fairly affordable 13-inch MacBook Air and super-light 12-inch to the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar, the line-up has never had more variety.
The MacBook Air is the cheapest notebook in Apple’s lineup, and it has 14 hours of battery life, which makes the Air a good option for students. You might also appreciate that the Air comes with full-size USB ports and an SD card slot, which makes it easy to transfer photos from your camera.
Not a fan of the new flat butterfly keyboards on the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro? The Air sports a traditional keyboard, which some may find more comfortable.
“I dig the MacBook.It is simply amazing, awesome, with a beautiful UI (User Interface) and simple user experience.Yeah, its simplicity is dope. As a software developer, it has great tools to enhance the quality of the software I develop” –Oluwagbuyi Abimbola (Software Developer)
Very slim and light, the 12-inch MacBook is the ultraportable to get if you’re constantly on the go. You’ll barely notice this notebook in your bag or backpack. It also has a sharp and colourful Retina Display, which puts the Air’s panel to shame, and you get a pretty strong 9.5 hours of battery life, which is better than many Windows ultraportable this thin. The latest version offers a faster Kaby Lake chip, which gives this machine more pep than its predecessor, as well as a slightly improved keyboard for better typing comfort.
The 13-inch Pro crams a lot of power into a slim and light 3-pound chassis. It is the same weight as the MacBook Air, but you get a much faster 7th-generation Core i5 processor and the latest Intel Iris graphics. It also offers a bright display and powerful speakers, plus two Thunderbolt 3 ports for the fastest possible transfer speeds. While the butterfly keyboard is flat, it feels snappy when typing.
Touch Bar and Touch ID button of the MacBook Pro 13-inch is pretty tempting when you see what they can do. The multi-touch screen above the keyboard provides all sorts of relevant buttons and controls as you use various apps. This version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro also offers two more Thunderbolt ports, as well as a faster 3.1-GHz processor and slightly-faster Intel Iris graphics. Whether you edit gobs of RAW photos or you want to tackle 4K video editing projects with silky smooth performance, the AMD Radeon Pro 560 graphics inside the 15-inch Pro is what you need.
“The MacBook has an amazing SHELL, beautiful display, and an incredibly awesome Touchpad gestures”
– Banjo Mofesola Paul (CTO Planet Nest)
Apple also pairs 16GB of RAM and 256GB of fast flash storage with a quad-core, 7th-generation Core i7 CPU for maximum horsepower. The 15-inch MacBook Pro sports the sharpest resolution you can get on an Apple laptop at 2800 x 1800 pixels, and offers a wider colour gamut than the previous 15-inches. Other yummy features include a super-large Force Touch trackpad and loud stereo speakers.
Another plus is the 15-inch Pro’s battery life, as it can last nearly 11 hours.
Is the MacBook indeed Bae?
