Of course it won't be the latest and greatest available. Computer technology changes so quickly these days. However, if you take care of it, the MBP will last you for many years.i know everyone says macs last forever compared to windows systems. does that mean my new santa rosa 2.4 ghz 2 gig mbp will last me all 4 years of college if im majoring in graphic design? thanks
Technology moves forward at the same speed no matter which brand your computer has, so it will be slower.but speed wise, i hear they dont get as bogged down as quick, so like will it be super slow by my 4th year? i dont know if this is making sense, but i heard macs wont feel as old as they are with osx compared to windows
Almost. It will last you 3 years and 201 days. You're going to drop it on the way to class one morning. But that's OK since there will be something even better to replace it.i know everyone says macs last forever compared to windows systems. does that mean my new santa rosa 2.4 ghz 2 gig mbp will last me all 4 years of college if im majoring in graphic design? thanks
I am running Win98 on a Pentium 633 as my main and do not recomend it! 9 years is pushing it for a PC. A ten minute start up time and being limited to word processing and internet is not good. I am guessing Macs are not this bad.[snip]Where people say macs work better are with older/new os revisions on old hardware, but then you can run Win98 on a say Pentium 233 just fine aswell but do people? And everyone and there dog seems to suggest that a mac gets "so much faster" with more ram, so obviously it's not low on ram resources either, it might work but you will prefer to use it with more.
