You would think that buying an Apple computer would be easier and more straightforward since there is only a limited selection of computers but finding the right Apple toy is still a bit of a chore. Apple has 2 laptop choices on the menu right now, the aluminum MacBook Pro in three different sizes (13, 15 and 17 inches); and the ultraportable MacBook Air (11”, or 13”). Apple no longer makes their entry-level white Macbook, but you can of course still find them on Amazon, and Ebay, and other reputable dealers.
The thing that is the biggest factor that goes into purchasing a Apple laptop is your budget, while the second is determined buy your usage. In other words, a student will be shopping for a laptop that fits a cheaper budget therefore will need less bells and whistles than say a professional shopping for business purposes.
Every single Mac will come with 2GB minimum (and most now start with 4 GB), but getting more RAM will always will improve the performance of your computer. The more RAM you have the more applications you can run at once without dragging the system down. Tibesti experts say upgrading RAM is more important than a jump in processor speed.
Another vital thing to consider is the computers hard-drive size. Files such as music, photos, and video files take up a lot of space, so adding a larger hard drive is definitely a worthwhile upgrade.
