I just want to ask you guys this question. Why did you guys decide to get a macbook even though you pay for less specs. I'm trying to get a new laptop and did some research. It seems like if you buy pc you get better specs with same money as you would spend on the macbook. So I'm just wondering why did you guys chose to buy this machine

In summary, you get what you pay for. If you're skeptical about that claim, schedule a personal shopper appointment at an Apple Store and see what you think.

And since we've visited this topic so many times before, I see no reason for yet another one of these.

Feel free to use our search function if you feel the need to do more research.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
