My 2014 Air Review: youtu.be/HlnFSZw9L2o

Since Iā€™m a Mac user and I've reviewed many Apple products I decided to make a Mac Buyer's Guide video for 2015 and help you decide which MacBook would be the best for you.

MacBook Family
* 3 models of the MacBook family: MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro
* Go over each laptop and tell you what person it's best for to see if it fits what you want

* Brand new; available in April 2015; Base model starts at $1299
* 1st MacBook to be available in 3 colors: silver, gold, and space gray (like iPads and iPhones)
* 12ā€ IPS Retina display with 3 million pixels
* Intel Core M mobile processor
* 8GB of RAM and at least 256GB of flash storage
* MacBook is for you if you just love having the newest Apple features (Force Touch trackpad and new butterfly mechanism keyboard)
* Care about looks more than performance (sexy; retina display; colors)
* Want something ultra portable and mobile; Apple's thinnest and lightest laptop (2 lbs and 9 hours battery life)
* Just run basic applications like web browsing, email, productivity software, nothing too CPU dependent (has mobile Intel Core M processor)
* Don't use USB drives or other external devices that much: SD card, cameras, charge phone/tablet, monitor (only 1 USB-C port for charging/input/output)
* Don't Skype/FaceTime much and don't need to record HD videos with the webcam (only 480p)
* Want something that resembles an iPad
* Most of your digital life is all wireless and on the Cloud
* Have the budget for it (expensive for what you get)

MacBook Air
* Comes in 2 sizes: 11ā€ starting at $899 and 13ā€ starting at $999
* It does not have an IPS Retina display
* 4GB of RAM (can be upgraded to 8GB) and 128GB flash storage (can be upgraded to 256GB)
* Fifth-gen Intel Core i5 dual-core processors (can be upgraded to i7)
* MacBook Air is for you if you
* Want a small, lightweight, thin laptop
* Always on the go (great for students and travelers)
* Don't mind having a non-HD display
* Like the thin compact size of the MacBook but need better performance and speed
* Care about battery life more than anything (13" gets up to 12 hours; longest battery life of any Apple laptop)
* Run typical everyday applications and can even handle some photo editing and light video editing
* Still need access to Thunderbolt and USB ports
* Need an HD webcam (720p)

MacBook Pro (Retina)
* Comes in 2 sizes: 13" starting at $1299 or 15" starting at $1999
* Both models have IPS Retina displays (13" has over 4 million pixels; 15" over 5 million pixels)
* 13" comes with 8GB RAM (can be upgraded to 16) 15" comes with 16GB RAM
* 13" has 128GB flash storage (can be upgraded to 256 or 512); 15" comes with 256GB flash storage (can be upgraded to 512)
* 13" comes with fifth-gen Core i5 dual-core processor (can be upgraded to i7)
* 15" comes with fourth-gen Core i7 quad-core processor
* MacBook Pro is for you if you
* Want the best performance and fastest speed
* Run CPU-intensive or graphics-intensive applications like gaming, HD video editing, 3D modeling, CAD, virtual machines, hardcore Photoshop
* Don't mind having a heavier laptop compared to the other MacBook models
* Want a desktop replacement
* Need as many ports as possible (HDMI, Thunderbolt, USB, SD)
* Get 13" if you want long battery life, new Force Touch trackpad, and fastest read/write disk speed
* Get 15" if you want the bigger display and want the best processor performance and best graphics.
