The Right Laptop for College


My name is Craig, and I'm going off to college this Fall and I'm looking for a laptop. I really like the Apple computers, not a big fan with how much Windows crash, but my grandfather, who is buy my laptop for me, wants to be sure that I'm getting a laptop that will handle everything I need for college. I told him that I think a Mac will be best, and he doesn't care. He just wants whatever is going to be best.

Any suggestions?

What are you going to mainly use it for?
If its only college and to run basic apps, macbook will do you fine.
If you're looking to play games, then macbook pro (as it has the latest nvidia geforce 8600gt graphics card)

I have an apple laptop i want to download facebook. help?

Hey, no problem if you have a new enough MacBook!

Go into the search bar in the top right corner and type in "store" and search.

if you find a hit labelled Mac App Store, congrats! Open that baby up and then search for Facebook within. If that doesn't come up, then you'll have to try to find another way. I would try a new question stating what model Mac you have and which operating system you have, like Leopard, Lion, or Maverik, and that you don't have access to the store.

Take the phone, computer, and cable to the Genius Bar in your closest Apple Store and ask them to look at it. This is hard to diagnose through text; they will be much better equipped to help you.

Does the mac come with a program for typing papers?

There are scores of downloadable word processing programs for the MACBOOKS that are free from Google has online programs that emulate Microsoft office format as does I would suggest looking at them for no cost solutions, especially if you are going to print out hard copies of documents only or need to collaborate over the web.

However if you want compatible documents, or ones that are able to be shared with others possibly not on MAC platform, like professors on Windows, etc. then you will need to purchase Microsoft Office for MAC. Check with your school as well. If they are on the MAC platform many times the school will provide the software via an enterprise license agreement with Apple/Microsoft. If in the end you have to foot the bill for the program and load it physically, be sure and get the educator discount, it substantially cuts the cost. You can do a search at or for the online purchase options and use EDUCATOR or STUDENT as keywords.

Mac powerbook G-4 will not start up with battery in. it boots without the battery but the fan is not on and it shuts itself down within 30 minutes. please any help will work

You can try swapping out the memory / booting with only one stick.

And you could also try a PRAM reset...but it's a long shot.

More than likely a key component on the logicboard has failed and it will need to be replaced.

It's too bad I really like the 12" powerbooks they're awesome. If you plan on upgrading you could always get a 1.5ghz 12" for around 400 now. Or you could just jump up to the new macbooks.

It's always sad to let a nice machine I'm sad about my old G4 12" that I had in college that died :(

Hope this info helps...let me know if you have any other questions, I'll try my best to help.
