    Anong sinabi ng limang disenteng laptop PCs (circa 25k each) or 13 acer chromebooks ($200 each) sa ligayang maihahatid sayo ng 15in 2.5GHz i7 (125k each). Pwede rin ito: High end na laptop PC (50k) + high end smart phone (35k) + smart watch (15k) + goPro (20k) + food trip. Sa MacBook Pro pa rin ako. LOLOL

    I bought macbook air way back in 2013. nag-aalangan akong bumili noon kasi i might not be able to handle well yung os ng apple. i have been using windows ever since i can remember so ang dami kong doubts noon. i am not a techie person. i use the laptop only para sa mga work ko sa office. buying the macbook is one of the best decisions i have made so far. super dali lang siyang gamitin. i especially love the “trackpad” (not sure of the name) of the macbook, and there is no need for me to use mouse na.

    if you have the money to burn for macbook, then go for it. sabagay, kanya-kanyang trip lang talaga yan.

    my previous laptops were: toshiba (satellite series) which i used for 4 years before siya nag-give up; tapos i went for acer; then etong macbook na. it’s been more than a year na since i bought my macbook and super satisfied naman ako. :-)

      Sa apple wla namang reklamo e. They can deliver. Kaso nga lang if your working in a company na kailangan certified ng microsoft ang mga programs na gagamitin mo, it’s really hard to get away from MS. Kahit timesheet lang ng mga companies kailangan certified ng MS at kng ano ano pang mga certificates na nilalagay ng IT. But yes, macbook is a very nice product para sa tamang audience nya.

    Nagslash sila ng price around Php.2800 sa mid model ng 13″ MBPr. I don’t know kung 0.2 GHZ (processor) lang difference niya sa Late 2013 model. Haven’t check the Tech Specs on it.

    It’s easy for people to dismiss macbooks as either overpriced or for social climbers. Pero hindi mo talaga malalaman ang worth niya until you own one. I’m not generalizing but macbooks give users a sense of satisfactions after ilang years. I have this laptop na mas maganda ang specs compare sa macbook ko but years later that laptop nagla-lag na pero yung macbook ko is okay pa din.
