4 Things to Consider Before Buying a MacBook

Get the fastest processor speed you can afford

Since Apple doesn't allow swapping out parts on any of its laptops, you can focus on buying a MacBook that matches your budget and comes with great processor speed. As you check better processors, expect to pay around $200 (~₱9,800) more as you check faster processors.

Instead of going overboard, consider how you will be using your new Apple laptop. If you're planning on taking notes and writing reports, then you can save some money by purchasing an Apple laptop with lower processor speed. If you're purchasing a MacBook to do creative work, then a laptop with a bigger processor would be a great choice.

RAM and storage

It's important to choose a MacBook wisely, as Apple doesn't allow you to change RAM on its laptops. RAM (Random Access Memory) is your device's short-term data storage. If you plan on running multiple programs, then get an Apple laptop with a high RAM configuration, as it allows for quick access to data. As for storage, don't opt for a MacBook with minimum storage, as it may not be enough over the long term. The same goes for an Apple laptop with over 1TB of storage, as it can be too much.

Buy a MacBook Case

Apple laptops are premium devices, but they can also be fragile. To keep your Macbook in mint condition, protect it using a Macbook case or bag.
