Have a Macbook Pro (Late-2011) that barely functioned through college. Looking for a new laptop that will keep up with me in medical school.
For my undergrad, I had this computer:
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)
Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Unfortunately, this computer ran so incredibly and frustratingly slow. Apps were constantly unresponsive, and often times I couldn't get any of my apps to work, especially the essentials (Safari, Word, Powerpoint, Pages, or Keynote). More often than not, it would take 45-60 minutes to open a word document. This computer absolutely hindered my academic success, and I cannot believe how agonizing this was.
I am going to be starting medical school in August 2016, and I am really hoping to get a powerful computer that won't constantly give me the "spinning beach ball of death". I need a computer that won't slow me down!
I can get a financial aid adjustment for up to $3000 for a computer, so that would be my max budget. Any advice regarding specs, devices, etc. would be so greatly appreciated!
