Better ways to spend your money in college than trying to impress with a mac
Why does it have to be a Macintosh? Plenty of other quality laptops to sink $1k+ into..
Not everyone enjoys apple's OS environment Confused

very sluggish laptop before a ssd replacement, and not really worth it after one either. might be okay for mom or dad but no one who's in a hurry... hard drive replacement took about an hour for me and I've done about ten on different laptops. hardest part was getting battery out cuz its got double stick tape holding it down.

Weighs 4.41 lbs. and measures 1" thin
Balances portability and screen size, so you get a respectable amount of viewing space without the laptop being too cumbersome for practical portability. 3-cell lithium ion battery.

Looks like you can swap the the hard drive with an ssd or etc. Appears to be a pain though.

The passmark score is almost 2k. Have a hard time believing that its that slugish considering its $200.

edit: any why would you take the battery out. Doesn't look like you would need to do that to get to the hard drive.

I take it that there's no way to add 4gb of RAM

Edit: per the video there didn't appear to be any removable RAM and again per the Crucial website it says not to exceed manufacturers memory

I had a laptop with a Pentium b950 that performed very well two or three years ago. The only reason I upgraded to one with an i5 is because I needed a 1080p screen and I really wanted back lit keyboard. only somewhat premium laptops had those.

I've found upgrading from 4 to 8gb of ram to be a much more cost effective upgrade compared to an SSD. 8gb of ram and a spinning drive will load web pages as well as handle 10 open tabs better than 4gb of ram with an SSD.
