We realise it can be daunting looking through all the different models and specifications. This can seem like a simple process if you know exactly what you are looking for. However, this may not always be the case. Jargon can feel like a barrier to your understand and we are here to help and support you through the process.
We have tried to simplify it as much as possible to help you choose the best alternative for your individual needs.
CheshireMacs thoroughly tests all our used Macbooks and iMacs before they are offered. This makes sure that they meet all the original specifications and functioning (as if they were new). If anything fails the extensive diagnostic testing, parts are replaced only using original Apple parts. This process is completed by our trained technicians to make absolutely sure all computers meet their original specifications.
Below we have split into 3 categories and selected a list of suitable Mac's:
These general tasks will include:
Streaming ~ Netflix/Prime/YouTube etc
Social Media ~ Facebook/Instagram/Twitter etc
Normal Internet Use ~ Shopping/Banking/Researching etc
Basic Office Programs ~ Word/Excel/Powerpoint
Video Calling ~ Zoom/Skype/Teams
If this sounds like it would suit your needs, view our list of suitable Macs.
Although most Apple Computers are suitable for general students, they tend to prefer lighter models which are easy to carry around so we have kept our list to MacBooks.
The selected MacBooks are suitable for academic use for tasks including:
Performing Coursework for GCSE/A-Level & Further Education
Researching and Storing Information
Basic Photo Editing/Graphic Creations & many more tasks used in your studies.
If you are looking for a MacBook for this area of use then here is our selected choice.
Our selection here is for more heavy use and running higher performance programs such as Music and Photo Editing. The more expensive MacBooks and iMacs we have selected will run programs more smoothly than others, but we have taken the highest listed Minimum and Recommended Specs from the software companies listed below and created a collection of suitable machines.
Photo Editing~ Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom,
Capture One, Affinity Photo
Music Editing~ Logic Pro, Audacity, Garageband, Adobe Audition
CAD Software~ AutoCAD, Solidworks, Fusion 360, Revit
These are just some examples of popular software used by professionals. Our Selected Models will also run many more similar software packages.
