School and University is set to return for 2015 and you’re likely looking to buy a new laptop for your education. If you are considering a Mac computer I am going to say you’re onto a great choice.

Apple is only interested in creating powerful Mac computers that are well designed, easy to use, come with the latest in technology and best of all are long lasting. This is why Mac is the most popular computers for education.

You can get up to 12 hours of battery life on the MacBook Air while the new 12-inch MacBook will give you 9 hours and 10 hours for the MacBook Pro.

Apple Mac computers are extremely popular among creative designers with many graphic designers, video editors using Mac.

High quality displays in MacBook Pro and iMac 5k model are great for photography, drawing and other graphic design work.

Law & Business & related courses

If you’re studying courses such as Law & Business you know you’re in for a long course. This means you’ll be doing lots of research, typing, document creation and will need a computer which lasts for many years.

The best option here is the MacBook Air however I’d recommend the 13-inch model over the 11-inch. MacBook Air is the lightest, thinnest Mac notebook yet is still extremely fast and offers a full size keyboard.

It makes a great Mac for your studies, while will be easy to carry around. It’s strong aluminium design and latest gen technology will see you still using your MacBook in years to come.

Architecture & Engineering coruses

Architecture & engineering courses require you to have a fairly powerful computer to run some advanced software. You’ll need to be able to run advanced CAD drawing software (REVIT, AutoCAD, ArchiCAD) and a Mac capable of doing tasks such as 3D rendering.

A iMac is a great solution it offers huge display sizes (21.5 & 27 inch) great for CAD, while giving the best in performance capable of running such programs. While it makes a great Mac for the home or office it likely isn’t portable enough for School/University.

The best choice will be the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. These models give you the largest displays for a Mac notebook, fastest performance while offering dedicated graphic cards – Great for CAD & 3D rendering!
