I hear the new MacBookAir is amazing and really lightweight and portable. I’m pretty sure you can run all your programs at once.  I don’t know anything about Samsung or any other non-Mac computers, unfortunately.

As far as refurbished computers/electronics go, I was working at an office and they ordered three refurbished Macs and one was defective and had to be exchanged but the others worked fine.  Personally though, I wouldn’t buy refurbished.  I’m not a tech but I feel that once these machines are opened up and the chips are switched out, etc., they are just never the same because they’re not designed to last a long time in the first place.

Again, that’s just my opinion because I’m definitely not a professional:)

I have a basic Macbook laptop; I’ve had it since 2008, and it’s still running strong as if I had just bought it yesterday. 

Macs are nice because they allow you to have a ton of different windows up at once and it doesn’t slow things down.

They also don’t get viruses like PCs do. 

I love my Macbook for doing school-related work (I’m a teacher) because I can have student essays, my gradebook, a rubric, and Wedding bee pulled up at once. 😉 haha

I have a Macbook Pro, and I love it. I did the whole PC thing and went right back to a Mac.

I’m going to put another good word in for the macbook pro! My husband got one because we were tired of burning through PC laptops every 3 years. When my laptop kicks the bucket I plan on getting one as well because I’m jealous of how awesome his is.
