What to look for when buying a Macbook Pro?

Other Apple Chat

Until buying my Iphone last year, it had been many years since I used an Apple Product. After a lot of research about accessible smart phones, it has been my understanding that since 2005, all Mac and IOS systems come with built-in accessibility right out of the box.

I love my Iphone and I am now looking to buy a Macbook Pro.

Unfortunately, I know what to look for when purchasing a Windows system, but Macs and PCs are very different. Can anyone tell me what I should put on my check list to look for when purchasing a Macbook Pro?

Thank you in advance.

It depends on what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a mac that you can take with you where ever you go get some thing like the mac book pro or mac book air. Another thing is that if portability is not what you want then get the mac mini or iMac.
Here is an article that explains each model of mac in full detail.

Hi. Though you may not need it, they have retina displays on most Macbook pros. true, you don't need to worry about a hard drive, unless you gowith solid state. i'm still ont he old school 5400 or so rpm one, solid state isn't big enough for me just yet. plus, if you go that way you have a larger price tag. Also unless you need it, or want to get amybe 2013 mac instead of a 2015, the older ones still have a slot dvd cd drive, the new ones don't. You'll add on aother eighty bucks or so to your order. Not something you need right now, just giving you your options.
