What I Want: Electronics

Lately I've been noticing that most of my favorite bloggers are using Macs to create their page posts and imaging. I started doing some research, asking around, and testing out some computers to see what all the fuss is about? While I'm no computer expert, from the very limited exposure I've had with the Macbook I can already see why bloggers are loving it! 

I've heard that the lifespan of a Mac definitely holds it's weight in its current price tag. While I've never owned a Mac, I have had several PCs in my lifetime and they have not lasted very long. It seems like after a couple of years they start to get full and slow down significantly and eventually with the competitive pricing of PCs you  just buy a new one rather then attempt to fix your old one. 

I was lucky enough to have some friends that let me play around with their Macbooks to see if I noticed any significant differences right off the bat. The main thing I saw right away was the brightness and clarity of the Mac screen is undeniably better than my current PC. Just putting my blog up, side my side, I was shocked!

So what are your thoughts? Are you a Mac or a PC? 
If you blog, with a Mac or PC, what do you love about them?
I'd love to hear what some of you ladies that use Mac (or don't) for blogging have to say, so thanks in advance!


  1. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! I'm a California girl who went out of state to college too! I graduated last May but still haven't moved all the way back home :( closer though! Haha. Anyway, I’ve decided to follow you! If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)

  2. I've been a loyal mac user since 2007, and the computer I bought back then still works! (I have since upgraded and gave that one to my dad, and he uses it all the time no problem). So yes, in terms of how long it lasts, it's definitely worth it! I had a Dell laptop prior to that and it died a year and a half in - which really sucked. So just for the longevity alone it's worth it!

    Aside from that, I also use an iPhone and I love how seamlessly everything syncs up. I also love that I never get the PC problems that seem to happen on a regular basis - viruses, spyware, etc, just never happen.

    All in all, I say GET A MAC! haha and when you decide what to get I highly recommend opting in for more hard disk space if possible. I wish I had done that with my macbook air, but now I have the iMac so I mostly save stuff there. But seriously, your hard drive will fill up a lot faster than you think! And it's annoying to have to use an external drive. haha

    If you have any other questions I'm happy to answer/discuss with you! :)
