Top 4 Reasons Why the 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro Is Perfect for Students
Choosing the perfect laptop for school or creative work is a bit tricky. You want to have a laptop with good performance and all the right features, but you also want it to be reliable and affordable at the same time. There are plenty of choices to go through from the Windows camp, but Apple recently made one of its MacBooks even more appealing for students.
I'm talking about the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display; the 2017 version, of course. The non-touchbar variant of the 13-inch MacBook Pro is shaping up to be the perfect laptop for the job for four interesting reasons.
It's More Affordable
The base model 13-inch MacBook Pro now starts at $1,299. For the money, you get Intel Core i5-7267U, a fast NVMe SSD, and more than enough RAM for multitasking. Apple decided to lower the internal storage included in the base model to 128 GB, but you can always pick up an external hard drive or SSD at an affordable price if you need more storage.
The lower starting price also means you can pick up the higher models at lower prices too. You can even get the 13-inch MacBook Pro with touchbar at a cheaper price compared to the last year's model. You get extra storage with the upgrade too.
A Stunning Screen
The MacBook Pro screen with Retina Display is one of the best on the market today. If you're taking an online bachelor science in information systems from a reputable university such as the UAB Collat School of Business, and you do a lot of reading and course assignments on the laptop, you will find the MacBook's screen to be a good companion.
The screen can be very bright when needed, but it also works just as well when set to a dimmer level of brightness. You get enough screen real estate for your applications and superb details that make even small text and web pages appear very readable.
More Battery Life
The 2017 MacBook Pros also come with a newer, more efficient processor, which means you can expect the battery to last longer than before. In fact, various tests revealed that the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display can be used for more than nine hours on a single charge.
For those pursuing an online BSIS degree, the extra mobility offered by the extended battery life is certainly a huge plus. You can study from any location without having to carry a charger around.
The base model of the 2017 MacBook Pro only has two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, but this is less of a problem today thanks to the wide variety of accessories available for USB-C devices. You can even pick up a dock for your main desk at home and connect things such as a bigger monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, and other USB devices while charging the MacBook Pro simultaneously.
Higher models offer four USB-C ports, two on each side, so you have even more options when it comes to connectivity. Combined with the stunning performance this generation offers, you can never go wrong with the MacBook Pro.
