Apple vs. Windows: You can’t go wrong with these back-to-school computers

Apple vs. Windows: You can’t go wrong with these back-to-school computers

As millions of students head back to school and off to college, it’s time to consider a student laptop. Now, the good news is that, no matter what you choose, Apple or Windows, it’s hard to go wrong.

Hard, but NOT impossible.

Apple says that in just a few weeks, it will release a new, so-called, “entry-level” lightweight, MacBook laptop, with a 13-inch screen and an Intel, “Kaby Lake” processor. The price will start at $1,200. While Apple calls this an entry-level computer, that's still an expensive laptop, by any standards.

The good news is that, for students, it’s hard to make a mistake in buying a computer, as long as you buy a name brand, like as Dell, HP, and Lenovo and that you buy from a reputable retailer.

And more good news: Unless your student absolutely, positively HAS to have a MacBook, you can get just as good a display, processor and operating system, with the brands I just mentioned - all for around $500-600 - for a great Windows computer.
