I am a student and manage a computers department at an electronics retailer. I am noticing that MacBook Pros are very common with the college student demographic. I am not giving an opinion on the laptop itself here - moreso, the situation makes me wonder: what on earth are these people doing with a MacBook Pro? I can't wrap my head around why self-proclaimed "tech-illiterate" buyers decide on a $1K+ computer to use for social media and Microsoft Office? These kids are using their grants, loans & scholarships almost completely on a computer they only utilize .1% of. Is it really just for the logo on the back? I understand the ease of use opinions I understand the iPhone/iPad has prompted interest with this demographic I understand the argument for security But even though all this makes sense to me - why a Macbook Pro and not a MacBook Air? In general it just baffles me why they buy a Pro machine to use, essentially, like a glorified tablet. I am not trying to be rude or condescending. I just don't understand why they feel they need a Pro machine when they could honestly use a Chromebook.
