Refurbished macBook Air

How to choose your Macbook Air ?

Deciding what MacBook to get is never easy with the frequent new releases and new technology. And most people do not know what to look for when getting one. To pick the right Mac, you need to consider the purpose of the device. If the Mac is for sending emails, skyping, or using Instagram, you do not need an expensive laptop. While people looking for a gaming laptop will go for Macs with higher processor speeds. There are various factors to consider when getting a Mac: the cost, the laptop’s processor, memory just to mention a few.

However, you will notice that the 1.1GHz quad-core i5 can bite much more because of its CPU power. Quad-core i5 has twice the cores i3 has. If you need the 'superman,' you have the 1.2 GHz quad-core i7. It has enough processor power for heavy tasks such as video editing or crunching heavy numbers.
