I'm starting a full courseload on Monday. I'm taking 5 courses (18 credit hours) and my netbook has been overcharged twice now and it only lasts 45 min before going down to 50%. When I first bought it, it used to last 1hr 15 and it would only be down to 85% ish. I was told to get the Macbook Pro.
I'm only looking at the 13 inch one, but I'm confused at some details...
There are two kinds, the regular kind and the one with retina display. I'm not really looking for anything fancy. I just want something that has a battery that lasts more than at LEAST 2 hours, and people swear theirs stays charged up to 80% with a couple hours of use and if they use it all day it can go up to 4 hours on the maximum performance (like high contrast, applications running, browsing on wifi, etc)
How do your Macbooks treat you? Also, is it better to go with the higher storage capacities? I know the basic 13 inch comes with 128 GB but there's a 13 inch with 256 as well. I just want something I can use Microsoft Word with and surf the web. I don't use it for any fancy music/photo/video editing.
