Apple MacBooks have become highly popular in Bangladesh. Many youngsters and working professionals have recently chosen MacBooks over Windows laptops because of their reliable performance and long battery life.
In this article, we will explain why MacBooks are so popular, some of their disadvantages, their product line-up, and a comparison between them. We will also tell you where you can get original Apple MacBooks in Bangladesh.
Apple MacBooks are well-known for their durable build quality, unprecedented performance, extra-long battery life, and more. In this section, we will describe the core features that make MacBook hugely popular among its users.
Apple MacBooks are famous for their sleek and portable design. You can easily carry them while traveling. They are lightweight and take up minimal space. For example, the latest MacBook Air 2 weighs only 2.7 pounds.
Apple MacBooks are equipped with blazing-fast Apple M1 and M2 chips. These chips perform well in demanding tasks like designing, video editing, animation, and coding.
When a device provides super-fast performance, normally, the battery life tends to be poor. But that’s not the case with MacBooks.
Apple’s M1 and M2-powered MacBooks offer exceptionally good battery life. Take the MacBook Pro for an example. It provides up to a whopping 22 hours of battery life on a single charge.
Most laptop manufacturers rely on multiple third-party companies to produce their hardware and software. So naturally, they don’t have complete control over their products. As a result, they can not optimize their laptops to the full extent.
Since Apple doesn't rely on other companies, they can fully optimize hardware and software on MacBooks. Because of that, we see fewer bugs and crashes on MacBooks. Every application can fully utilize the system resources.
All Apple MacBooks come with comfortable keyboards and roomy trackpads. You can type for hours without hurting your fingers. Trackpads, on the other hand, offer a smooth tracking experience with tons of gesture support.
If you use other devices from Apple like iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, you can seamlessly connect them with your MacBook. Then you can easily transfer files or unlock your MacBook using these devices.
In terms of security, MacBooks have better built-in security features in their MacOS operating system. MacBooks tend to be less prone to cyber attacks, malware, and online phishing than Windows laptops.
One of the major disadvantages of buying a MacBook is that there are basically no upgrade options available. This means you can not upgrade the CPU, GPU, Storage, and Memory like you can in a Windows machine.
Apple MacBooks usually come with limited ports. For example, the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro have only two ports. So you are bound to use an external hub with these devices.
However, it’s nice to see that the recent MacBooks, like 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, offer more ports than usual.
Apple MacBooks are divided into mainly two categories - MacBook Air and MacBook Pro series.
The Apple MacBook Air series consists of two models: MacBook Air M1 and MacBook Air M2.

Apple MacBook Air series focuses on making ultra-sleek and lightweight MacBooks that are slightly affordable to buy. Since the main priority is making this series super portable, no active cooling system exists.
Apple MacBook Pro series, on the contrary, focuses on making the highest-end MacBooks perfect for creative professionals. These have active cooling systems to sustain stable performance in the long run. These tend to be slightly thicker and heavier than the MacBook Air series. Yet, MacBook Pros are still easily portable.
