What Mac should I buy?

I am a first time laptop buyer. I know I want a Macbook. I was leaning more towards a Macbook Pro but I'm still not sure. I will be using it for school mostly but also; music, photos, movies, and one game. So I'm wondering if I should just get a regular Mac instead.

  • You would do well with a base 13 inch MacBook Pro, upgraded to a 500GB hard drive if you have a lot of material. That should be a perfect fit.
