The Cheapest MacBooks on the Market

You want to buy a new laptop. What brand to choose? Do you need a big display or more portable? What about battery or storage? So, let's dive in.

Choosing Your MacBook

Let's say you've decided on a brand. You need Apple. Desktop or laptop? If you need mobility and portability, the answer is, of course, only one — a laptop. However, it should be noted that Apple MacBooks are not inferior to desktop computers of many other brands and even bypass them in terms of technical characteristics. And all this at the same time in a lightweight and convenient form-factor.

The next argument is the price. Buying cheap electronics is always a little scary, because low price often means quality trade-offs, bad condition or outdated tech. However, you can get more confidence with Apple. If you properly match your requirements with device specifications, even an inexpensive MacBook will serve you faithfully for quite a long time.

It's all about certain characteristics, which have an influence on the price. Let's look into them and find out what the price depends on, what you can save on, and which MacBooks are the most inexpensive.

Some Conclusions

What conclusions can we draw? The price depends on display size, processor generation, memory and storage capacity, and surely grade. You can save money on all of these characteristics as long as it fits your requirements and use case.

If you’re not planning on storing video-editing projects, or big catalogues of RAW photos from a DSLR camera on your computer, then you can just go for a MacBook with less storage space. If you only need a computer to surf the Internet, you won't need an advanced processor either. And if you’re not aiming to use your MacBook as a home theatre, then a small display won't be a big problem for you.

Start small and then come back for an upgrade! :)
