So here I am, a college student looking for a portable computer . I seeked the internet for advice and they said Macbooks are the best all around laptops, so I thought what the heck I could use a new OS. I'm a windows user all my life and I currently have a decent PC on my dorm (my high end pc is at my home).. And I'm currently looking for a laptop I can carry around and replace my desktop as much as possible. I'm a 2nd year engineering student and I video edit for our school projects, here I ask, what Macbook should I buy? What I'll do with it (Highest to lowest) : Browsing the web, streaming/watching 1080p videos, typing documents, editing 1080p videos for our projects and some light gaming like Skyrim, I don't play online games(I know I can use my desktop) My Budget: As expected, a college student such as myself can only fork out a 1100$ which is Php50000(in our currency ) or so. I guess my I can ask my mom to bump my budget by a 100$ or so I can't buy on amazon knowing I live on the Philippines, which has no amazon like website (as far as I know) If I'm going to buy a macbook it would be my first apple product other than ipod classic (which I absolutely adored) I'm thinking of getting 8gbs of ram if my budget allows it, and I have 3Tb of external hard drive so I don't need a larger storage space. For now, I'm leaning on a Macbook air for its portability and whatnot Thank you for reading, and an advanced thank you for the answers and suggestions. Edit: I forgot to add that we will be programming next semester, can a Mac program? If so, can the created program be used on a PC?
