Read this article if you want to learn if MacBook Pro is the one for you.
Advantages And Disadvantages Of The MacBook Pro
There are lots of laptops to choose from in the market. Most of them are competent enough to keep up with the work-from-home workload of many employees. They are aesthetically pleasing, too, when placed on your quaint coffee table in Singapore.
However, only a few are superior enough to carry more than just light office tasks at home, and one of them is the MacBook Pro. So lie down in your queen size bed as this article relays the advantages and disadvantages of the MacBook Pro.
ADVANTAGE: Unmatched Operating System
What is an operating system (OS)? A computer has two primary parts: hardware and software. The hardware refers to the physical component of your laptop, such as the keyboard, screen, batteries, mouse, graphic cards, hard disks, and so on.
On the other hand, software is a set of instructions, data, and programmes that operate the computer to do tasks. Your internet browser, audio player, and video player are among the tons of software you can install on your computer.
The operating system is the mother software of your laptop. A person cannot install other software on their laptop without the OS that manages other software and hardware. The OS also coordinates your computer’s storage and memory. A laptop without an OS is like using a toaster oven without anything in it– useless.
Most laptop brands use a third-party OS like Microsoft Windows. What sets MacBook Pro apart from other laptop brands is it uses its own OS– macOS.
What is the advantage of macOS over third-party operating systems?
The macOS is so user-friendly that even an 80-year-old can learn how to navigate it.
On top of that, macOS has a superior display, which can be advantageous for graphic artists, photographers, videographers, and photo and video editors.
Furthermore, macOS has excellent protection against viruses and malware. You won’t encounter unresponsive pages with macOS as well.
Perhaps, the biggest barrier that stops people from buying MacBook Pro is its staggeringly high price. You can even purchase a children’s closet and kids bed in Singapore at its cost. But what makes a MacBook Pro expensive?
Firstly, the brand itself, Apple, skyrockets the price of the MacBook Pro and all other Apple products. Apple marketing is not to ignore as well.
Secondly, the materials used for the hardware are high-grade and very efficient.
Thirdly, the superb performance and security of its OS also increase the costs.
Lastly, the longevity of the MacBook Pro is remarkable. Because it uses durable and high-quality materials for the hardware and secured, user-friendly, and efficient OS, users can use MacBook Pro for many years without having a fault in the performance.
These things make up the staggeringly high cost of the MacBook Pro. But in hindsight, you can actually save money by not needing a virus fix, formatting due to slow performance, and subscribing to security software.
ADVANTAGE: Impressive battery Performance
If you are the type of person who is always in a place with electricity outlets unavailable, MacBook Pro would be the perfect laptop for you.
The battery of an ordinary laptop could last four to five hours without charging. The MacBook Pro? It can last 11 to 12 hours! It is why people who are always on the go prefer the MacBook Pro. It is perfect for people who like to lie on their queen size bed all day, too.
But remember, the battery usage of all laptops depends on the applications and programmes they are running.
DISADVANTAGE: Lack of software support
More than 70% of laptops today use the third-party OS, Microsoft Windows, so it is not unsurprising that many software and applications today are compatible with Windows.
Although many software developers today create the macOS versions of their applications, there are still a few that are incompatible with MacBook Pro.
This drawback slightly limits people who use various software and applications for their work.
ADVANTAGE: Structure And Design
Besides the glowing Apple logo at the back of the laptop that screams class and refinement, MacBook Pro is definitely aesthetically pleasing. Its slim design makes it look clean and sophisticated.
But MacBook Pro is not only about looks; it values functionality. MacBook Pro is lightweight and has a widescreen display.
MacBook Pro is the best option if you need to carry your laptop around.
DISADVANTAGE: Outdated hardware
The hardware MacBook Pro is extremely durable. They may even last longer than your toaster oven, but the only problem is you can’t upgrade it.
For example, the older MacBook Pro only has two USB-C ports, while the newer models have an HDMI port and SD card slot. If you need these ports, you need to buy adaptors or docks or purchase the latest MacBook Pro model.
Nevertheless, all laptops need hardware upgrades anyway.
Choosing the best laptop is far more difficult than selecting a coffee table in Singapore. There are a lot of things you need to consider.
The performance of your laptop affects your productivity. Your productivity rate will drop if you spend a lot of time rebooting your laptop or waiting for the unresponsive pages to load.
You will also spend money on repair when your laptop battery, camera, charger, and the entire casing of your device start to deteriorate.
Speaking of money, you also have to calculate the return on investment of your chosen laptop.
