I use my macbook for school. Im a college student. Also use it for personal use like social media. Im a stay at home mom and love loading all of pictures to my mac. Have never had an issue with this cp slowing down. Its a best buy for your money. If you buy an apple you have a life time computer. the only issues i have with it are. The charger doesn't want to stay in the port so i have to hold it with my hand and mess with it till it charges then set it against something so it charges. Also after being on it to long the bottom of it get very hot. I would buy this mac book again because I've never had any technical issues and its never slowed down. well worth the money.
