Mac for Education

Which Mac Fits Your Needs And Your Learning Style this 2022?

The pandemic had a significant impact on education–as it did on everything else. Because of that, pursuing it became difficult for both the students and the teachers. While cases have significantly dropped, COVID-19 remains a reality we need to face. And even this should not postpone learning. So, to prevent academic freeze, education systems transitioned into online learning that both students and teachers had to adapt to–quickly.

And as we all learn to adjust to the new normal, teachers and students had to rely on technology to make distance learning possible. But how sure are we that the tools we have can sustain learning in this new classroom setup?

What to Consider?

We gave you a few suggestions of devices to help you choose the right Mac for your education, and here are some additional factors to consider:

• Price – Consider your budget and know which Mac fits your pocket. If you are just going to use the computer for homeschooling and not for studying on the go like in libraries, or coffee shops (which is not recommended because of our pandemic situation), you can just opt-in to a Mac mini. Affordable yet powerful and has fast processors.

• Battery – (excluding Mac mini on the list) Longer battery life is also a great factor to consider. Again, if you are just going to use the computer at home, buy a Mac mini which you can use as long as it is plugged in. But if you really like to work outside to get things done in coffee shops, parks, or while traveling, you can choose between a MacBook Air (easy to carry) and a MacBook Pro (good for graphics).

• Processing Power – Better processing power gives you the ability to work on your projects, edit videos, watch movies, and play during your breaks.

Bottom Line

These top picks will help you decide which Mac device will help you with your academic pursuit. The right technology should make all tasks easier and lighter. So, it is best to know the right one before upgrading or getting a new one. Know all the series of Macbooks and learn the difference between each model, try to check out the Mac comparison.
