Computer Systems

Stasha Garrett

Today I will be choosing two different computer systems that I would want to personally use. My choice will be based on opinion as well as the computer quality. My choices will be based off of Apple products.

Macbook Pro

$1,299

This particular computer system is called the "Macbook Pro." The Apple product has some good results, including a four out of five star rating. The features of this specific laptop include:

Monitor:

  • Apple
  • 13-inches wide
  • 0.71 inches thin
  • 3.46 pounds
  • Retina Display

  • 8 GB
  • 16 GB

  • Up to 2.6GHz, 2.8GHz, and 3.0GHz

  • 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB options

Operating System

  • OS X Mavericks

  • Logic Pro X
  • Final Cut Pro X

The reason I chose the Macbook Pro as one of the two computer systems is because it's reasonably fast, portable, and possess a clean, sleek look.

iMac

The iMac is an extraordinary system that has tons of fancy features including:

Monitor

  • Apple
  • 28 inches wide
  • 17.7 inches high
  • 5 millimeters thick
  • 12.5 pounds

  • 8GB
  • 16GB
  • 32GB

CPU

  • Intel Core i5 - 3.4GHz
  • Intel Core i7 - 3.5GHz

USB Ports

  • Four USB 3 Ports
  • Two Thunderbolt Ports (connect high performance peripherals including external hard drives and cameras)

The iMac doesn't specifically have a Hard Drive, but here are the internal storage choices:

  • 1TB Serial ATA
  • 3TB Serial ATA
  • 1TB Fusion Drive
  • 3TB Fusion Drive
  • 256 Flash Storage
  • 512 Flash Storage
  • 1 TB Flash Storage

Operating System:

  • OS X Mavericks

Pre-Loaded Software:

  • Aperture
  • Logic Pro X
  • Final Cut Pro X

Included with iMac

I chose this computer because of its super awesome software and because of how its incredibly sized to perfection.

If I had to only choose one computer system out of the choices listed above, then I would choose the Macbook. The reason that is, is because it's portable which would give me a great advantage during school and after school events.
