MacBook Deals 2017
MacBooks are simply the best laptops you can buy, offering stunning performance and truly great design. Apple is unlikely to discount MacBooks, but we are sure that other Mac resellers will want to get in on the action, and we will bring you those deals first. If you want to score a great deal on a MacBook, here's what to look out for.
MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air
There are three major divisions in the MacBook world. The 12-inch MacBook, the MacBook Pro, and the MacBook Air. These further divide in terms of display size, components and storage capacity. All are powerful, all are portable. But, basically, the MacBook Pro is the top-of-the-range power PC, the Air is the thinnest and lightest, and the remaining plain old 'MacBook' sits somewhere in between.
MacBooks all run Apple's OS X software, which is stable and easy to use (although somewhat different to Windows). You can get all the major programs you use in Windows and run them on your MacBook, or indeed even install Windows should you desire. There is nothing wrong with buying an older generation or refurbished MacBook, as all Apple computers are well built and run well. But you should consider what connectivity ports you need, and whether you will need to update your third-party software.
We'll be scouring the web for great MacBook deals.
