A Condor has $2,000 and wants to buy the best Apple laptop for the money. Tell me your thoughts. This bird is thinking of buying refurbished, but can be persuaded otherwise. This bird also is looking for a device that will last for years and years. Reliability is key. This bird is currently using a Windows laptop that is 4+ years old. Will the Mac last longer? This bird does not NEED the laptop now. It will NEED the laptop within 3-4 months.
