Thinking you might want a laptop PC, desktop PC, Mac desktop or Chromebook instead? Find out which kind of computer is really for you.

Macs used to be the expensive computers that graphic designers and "creative types" used. Now, they're a serious option for any computer user thanks to their solid construction and easy-to-use operating system.

Of course, they're still on the expensive side, and there are quite a few options. You want to buy the one that's right for you the first time. That's where I can help. Let's take a look at your options and the pros and cons of each.

MacBook Air

The MacBook Air started as the go-to Mac if you're a frequent traveler. It then became Apple's budget laptop option.

The Air comes in two sizes. There's an 11.6-inch model for those looking for a super small laptop. And there's a 13.3-inch model for those wanting a bigger screen.

To keep its size down, the Air has a few space-saving features. Perhaps the coolest is the flash storage. That means there's no physical disc that holds your data. This is a more reliable, quieter and faster method of storing information.

Flash storage also makes booting up, opening programs and browsing through media extremely fast.
