Os: This laptop, being a Macbook, comes with their signature operating system OS X. While this is a terrific operating system for creative app users, this can be replaced with another OS if so desired.
Storage: While it is a bit less than you may be able to find in this price range, the 512 gigs of storage that comes with this laptop is a lightning-fast solid state drive. This means apps and files will load much quicker.
Apps: For those creative types, there’s a lot of mileage to get out of this Macbook. It supports many different apps for creative uses, such as Final Cut and Garageband, ideal for video editing.
Hardware: The CPU that comes with this laptop is a top of the line Core i7, a beast at multitasking. Additionally, the dedicated separate graphics card can handle most rendering without any problems.
Airflow: Macs are great for a lot of things, but they’re not the best at heat dissipation. The aluminum shell is meant for heat absorption, meaning it will be hot to the touch on your lap. Consider investing in a cooling pad.
