MacBook is the best lap top to own!
I have been using Macs since 1998 and, despite snide remarks by friends, continue to love them. In 2009, two of my sons purchased a new iMac for my birthday. Almost a year to the day later, it was stolen from my home. This necessitated a new purchase. I contemplated both the desktop and the laptop. Finally decided on the laptop mainly for the portability feature. I love the idea that I can take it with me wherever I go. Macs are much better than PCs, in my opinion because they are much more user friendly. You can get things done much more easily. The creative options are outstanding. The Macs are not as targeted for virus' as PCs are so I feel more secure. It has taken me a while to get used to the flat keys of this lap top and I'm still getting used to using a trackpad rather than a mouse. I greatly miss my iMac but am thrilled with this lap top. I would highly recommend that anyone who purchases a Mac product also purchase the Apple Care protection program. It's worth the cost in the long run when things happen. One of my sons just had his hard drive replaced, for the 2nd time in almost 3 years, free of charge because he had the Apple Care protection program. Ease of Use Open it open, push the power button....ready to go! Battery Life I usually have it plugged in but have not had any problems. If the battery is running low, I just plug it in and it recharges quickly. Support & Service For anyone who purchases an Apple product, I strongly recommend the additional purchase of the Apple Care Protection Plan. I normally do not purchase extended warranties but this one is well worth it. I dropped my lap top, cracking the case. Took it to my Apple Store where they replaced it free of charge, no questions asked. Speed/Performance Never an issue. The speed and performance are awesome. Design It's the perfect size and weight. Durability Would never recommend dropping it as I did....
