    I've moved away from Apple's MacBooks but if you're gonna get one, get the right one

      So, what would you choose in general between a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, Dell XPS 15 or a 15 inch Macbook Pro for someone who has other Apple devices but is not really tied to macOS (I actually love using Linux)? Any devices with great battery lives for Linux that you might know of?

      Why did you move away from Apple? And which laptop do you recommend for a college student 👩‍🎓 that used it lightly for research everyday

      Saw this again today because I'm few clicks away to purchase a refurbished mbp 13 early 2015 ( i5, 2.7ghz two cores, 8gb ram and intel 6100 integrated graphic card) with 1 year warranty from a autorised refurbishing company from Spain, where I live. The laptop have no scratches on chassis, same the display and the battery have ~350 cycles. The display is the original which I find a plus, but the price is something I m not sure about because I find it pretty expensive for it s age and very near to the newest ones which I hate for their keyboard. It s 900euros and I plan to change the original 128 ssd with a 480 owc ssd for another 150 euros. And what I plan to do with it it s like power point presentations, exel work and a bit of photo editing for myself, not professionaly, and media consuming. My concern and question is : it s a great deal for the price? I plan to use it for like another 3-4 years for same things. I would appreciate any response. And Dave, thank you for your great knowledge you share and quality videos you deliver to us. Peace.

    MacBook Pro 2014 15 inches Retina display, Core i7, 16gb, 512 gb SSD, Geforce 2 gb VRAM is the best MacBook ever.
    I don't think most non-pro users need more powerhouse than that for the next 5 years for browsing, programming , photo and video editing.
    It also has all ports available and the best keyboard ever.
    The glowing Apple logo as well.
    A second hand is cheaper than bullshit PCs on the same price range and you have the best operating system ever, MacOS as well as the possibility to install any other x86 compatible OS of your choice

    Better deal on Apple's refurb store? Just looked at the MacBook Pros on Apple's refurb store (www.apple.com/shop/refurbished/mac/macbook-pro), and all they are doing is taking like $150 off full retail price. You can find the same deal on Amazon or Best Buy throughout the year for a brand new MacBook Pro... Sorry, but that's not a better deal...

    • Ben Driver
      Ben Driver 12 days ago

      Just went to Best Buy's website, and yep, you can buy a brand new MacBook pro, for the same price as Apple's refurb www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-macbook-pro-13-display-with-touch-bar-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-128gb-ssd-latest-model-space-gray/5998700.p?skuId=5998700

    I just got a non-retina 2012 MacBook Pro 13 for 200 dollars. It is still so much better than even modern windows laptops.. i has a lovely 17” HP which played up and I had problems installing extra ram and ssd into it.. after that I installed Linux... and there are just so many inconveniences... love my MacBook Pro now though)))))

  • iQlo Das Ve'r

    Well, I kinda confused, cause my brother birthday is coming up soon and I like to buy a present for him which is a laptop/gaming laptop. He interested in Video editing, Photo editing, 3d rendering, Animating, and of course gaming. I personally don't use Apple product, but from what I heard many people prefer Macbook for editing, etc. I would like to know why, cause from what I search the Macbook has spec like I7-9750h and I7-9880h and well with mediocre GPU, while the gaming laptop I choose to compare is Dell Alienware Area 51M / M17 (depend on the spec that I would choose) but yeah the point is they all pretty much same spec which result in same performance in the end except the Gaming.

    Nb: For about battery, thickness, and weight it's pretty much doesn't matter since I believed he won't be allowed to bought the laptop outside from the house. So yeah pretty much just the spec.

    I feel like the right one is a used macbook pro from a couple gens back for a decent price and some of the older ones still have upgrade paths IIRC, like 16gb, swap in an ssd and a quad core. That's what I'm getting from my 2012 macbook pro got that for free because of a bad HDD cable that I replaced for 15$
    EDIT: Glad to see that was a suggest option, not many people do that and its nice.
