A Student to Another: Macbook Pro

For most college students, college can be a very expensive experience. Most likely the most expensive thing they will be paying for, other than tuition, is a new laptop. People say that you can survive college without your own computer, I find that very false. Classes today usually involve papers and projects that need to be done on a computer and the only place I could think of that offers free computer usage is the library. The libraries that I know of aren’t open 24 hours of the day; in order to get a project done you will have to conform to their hours. As a college student, I have had to get a job. I never have time to go to the library, which means if I didn’t have my own computer, I would never get anything done. I have just recently purchased an Apple MacBook Pro and after spending a small fortune on it, I am going to evaluate the portability, the speed, the programs, the mouse, the screen, and the battery of my Macbook Pro.
The first objective I would like to evaluate is the portability of MacBook Pros. The MacBook weighs less than 4 lbs, which makes it a very ideal laptop to carry around campus in a backpack. It is also very thin which is perfect to slide into your backpack without having to take anything out.

As a student, I take my Mac everywhere and most of the time I’m not anywhere near an outlet so the battery life of a Mac is ideal for a student. Also, as a music lover, I am able to download new songs without having to worry about if I’m going to have enough battery power left to work on my homework.
Overall I would recommend the Macbook Pro to anyone. It has so many more great features other than the portability, battery, the multi purpose mouse, and the speed/ performance of the programs. I would recommend to them that upgrading to the matte screen would be worth the extra pretty pennies.
