Episod 1093 (1:48:45)

Debbie from Calabassas, CA

Debbie wants to buy her son a laptop computer for his birthday, and wants to know if there's a Mac for around $500. Leo says no. She can get a base MacBook Air for $900, which has an 11" screen. It's powerful and affordable. 128GB is a fine size for an SSD and Debbie's son can always add an external hard drive, or he can bring it back and get something different. Should she get it at the Apple Store or at Best Buy? Leo says she won't save any money getting it at Best Buy. So she should go at the Apple Store. And if he needs Windows applications for work, the Mac will be able to run Windows so he could get those to work as well.
