Deciding on a new Apple MacBook can be challenging. Should you go with a MacBook Pro 14 inch model with the Apple M1 chip? Or maybe you need the productive power of a larger MacBook Pro with the glorious 16 inch screen. Or maybe you need the ultra-portability of one of the MacBook Air 13 inch models. If you’re stuck between a MacBook and a hard place, look no further. Here are a few questions you need to ask yourself, along with a few tips to help you arrive at the right decision based on your needs.

What’s Your Budget?

This might be the most important question of all. Before you set out on your MacBook-buying journey, it’s important to have a budget (or range) in mind. Your budget can inform the buying experience. A smaller budget may put you in line for a MacBook Air, while a larger budget may mean you’re well-positioned for a MacBook Pro with custom options.

Of course, whether your budget is limited or flexible isn’t the end-all be-all. You may have a limited budget, but you may be able to get a higher-end model through a retailer’s MacBook trade in program. Alternatively, you may have a flexible budget, but a high-end MacBook is too much MacBook for your needs. So, let’s look at a couple more questions to narrow things down.

What Are Your Computing Goals?

We’re all content creators in one way or another. That’s why you’re looking to get a MacBook. You may be a writer, a photographer, a videographer, a musician, or you simply need a reliable computer to get work done. When your primary goals include checking email, browsing the web, streaming content, and writing, one of the MacBook Air 13 inch models may meet your needs (with plenty of computing power to spare).

However, if you’re rendering super high-res raw images or doing more intense visual work, you may need to turn your attention to the MacBook Pro line. The more intense your needs, the higher-end the model. If you need a vibrant screen that delivers on detail—while giving you plenty of processing power and RAM—a custom configured 16 inch MacBook may be the way to go.

How Mobile Do You Want to Be?

If you’re on the go all the time, portability is a concern. Thankfully, you once again have options. The MacBook Air 13 inch line is, as you’d expect, the most portable line of Apple laptops. Both the 13 and 14 inch MacBook Pro lines still retain portability while giving you more options when it comes to processors, RAM, and storage.

Additionally, the 16 inch line still offers some portability, but it does start to feel more limited in terms of how much space you need to work. There is another option if you need ultra-portability: the iPad and iPad Pro lines. These devices can be productivity powerhouses, too, however, you’ll want to check out the keyboard attachments and other accessories to enhance the experience.
