New School, New Laptop

There is always the controversial question of “Mac or PC?” Personally, I’m a Mac person but everyone else in my house is a PC lover. Though the choice is up to you, Apple has finally released their new MacBook Pro and it might sway your decision. The new MacBook Pro is 25% thinner according to Huffington Post, and features the retina display, a 29% improvement in contrast with over 5 million pixels in the 15.4-inch screen. The retina display features four times the amount of pixels as the past MacBook. If you go on the website you can actually see the difference between the old and new screens. When you scroll over the text you can really see the difference!

The senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, Phil Schiller, claims that, “There has never been a notebook this thin, this light, this powerful for professional use.” This MacBook has two USB ports, two Thunderbolt ports, and one HDMI port (so you don’t need an adapter for projectors/tvs with an HDMI port). There is also upgraded RAM, processors, and available storage. The battery has been upgraded to last seven hours and has a standby time of 30 days.

In July 2011 Apple discontinued the white MacBook so now the only choices left are the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini, unless you want a desktop-like computer. You can compare all of the Apple products at their website.

So comment below, are you a Mac or PC user?
