For gamers they just don't. And Matlab, SPSS don't care about this lag. Instead of taking 5 seconds it may take 10. Is that so bad?
The MacBook Air models may not have huge drives so you must plan ahead. No one but you can guess this but 128 or 256GB drives are too small for compsci folk.
Apple refurb gets same warranty as new. And you get Apple care for the number of years you need it covered.
So I needed some advice. I wanted to know what is a better buy, a dell xps 13 or a MacBook Air with the Parallel software downloaded to run Windows on it? For college I need certain apps and softwares which are generally only compatible with windows and I really don't know what to buy.
If I buy the Macbook Air and download all that, will the Windows OS lag while I'm running it? Or do you all think it's a good idea to just stick to a windows laptop. Since I'm a science student I won't need any of the editing apps, I'll mostly be using softwares such as Matlab and SPSS.
Furthermore, is it safe to buy a refurbished product? Or should I just stick to new products?
Please advice, thanks!
