Theo's daughter has $500 and wants a computer for school. Leo says he likes Chromebooks, and $500 will get her quite a bit. It's all web based, so if that's her main focus, it's a great choice. It does have 16GB storage for offline access.
laptops for college
Michelle's daughter is going to college, and will be majoring in science. What computer should she buy? Leo says if she can afford it, she should get a Mac -- specifically the upper level Pro models. If she prefers Windows, Leo advises going with a pro business line. In other words, she shouldn't get any of the cheap laptops.
Jerae's son is going away to college and his major is computer science. She wants to get him a computer. But he's on Windows, not Mac. Leo says that in college computer science, most use Macs because the heart of OS X is BSD Unix. So getting a Mac is definitely the way to go for computer science. But there's no reason to not get a Windows machine. Leo likes the new Dell XPS 13. It's thin, light, and has excellent battery life.
