In the present day and age, education is heavily dependent on technology. There are online schools with coursework and assignments being given and submitted via e-mail or on a given school webpage. This means that it is no longer a luxury for a student to own a computer, but a necessity.
Meet Beauty and the Beast Functioning as One
Today, we are looking at the reasons why students should invest in a M rather than any other personal computer. Personal Computer, loosely referred to as PCs, is a blanket term for many computers that use Microsoft windows. Here, it is used to create a distinction between Apple and all other computers.
The obvious reason why a student would prefer a MacBook is its superior aesthetics. A MacBook is incredibly slim and light. This makes it less bulky and hence can be carried around with ease. It is important to note that the MacBook still has a superior processor and keyboard since none of the integral parts of the Mac are compromised to enhance lightness or slimness. It is also very beautiful as it comes in classy hues: silver, space gray, and gold.
MacBook’s are also targeted by fewer viruses mainly because most of their software is specific and their market share is not deemed as large. This is probably the reason why most sites, which offer assignment help in Australia, cite Mac Book as the computer of choice. With fewer viruses to target them, chances of random loss of data are also minimized.
Cheap is Expensive in the Long Run
MacBook computers might seem a bit pricey, but they are still the best buy for a student hunting for a computer. This is because they rarely breakdown and have the best customer service to help in case of any difficulties. Moreover, their interfaces are relatively easy to use.
It is important to note that when buying a Mac, you get all your software from one shop. This means that you will not have to download drives from one place, buy antivirus software from another, and install others directly from the manufacturers. The acquisition and installation process is streamlined.
Most Apple stores also offer monthly payment options meaning that one does not have to cough the lump sum at once. It is important to note that a student’s liquidity increases with their possession of a MacBook compared to other PCs. This is mainly because PCs depreciate incredibly fast while Macs do not. If you needed to resell your laptop, the MacBook would give you a higher return value, close to the original value compared to the PC owner.
At the end of the day, cheap is expensive. One would rather buy a computer that is valuable and functional and hence can be used even when one transitions into the corporate world.
The Angel is in the Details
It is important to note that the MacBook does not need a fan, as its operating system and processor are so efficient that there is no whirling noise or overheating. One can also be able to make videos and/or take photos using the Mac hence making artsy and creative school assignments easier.
If one has never tripped over a power chord in their lives, they are either very old (and born before computers, mind you) or terrible liars. Students have probably tripped on cables more than twice as much as the rest of the population mainly due to their harried lifestyles and educational pressures.
The good thing is that a Mac’s cable is magnetic and hence comes off when pressure is applied. This prevents the Mac from falling unlike in PCs where the PC would fall off a table were the charging cable accidentally tagged. It also has a full day’s battery longevity, necessary for the busy college student.
Ultimately, the decision to purchase a Mac or PC is up to the individual and their preferences. When making your decisions, remember that Macs are easy to use, easy to install software, virtually virus-free, have superior aesthetics and hardware, and are ultimately a better investment.
