A great computer for daily tasks
Going from a dual-screen workstation to a single screen at your desk in your own home might be jarring. At the very least, it could negatively affect productivity. Give your loved one a hardware expansion. This MacBook comes loaded with a roomy 500GB HDD, great for bulk storage of important files. On a full charge, the battery could last up to seven hours. That means they wouldn’t have to stay stuck at their desktop for the whole workday.
Don’t underestimate this MacBook Pro because it has a few years behind it. The Turbo Boost(opens in a new tab) could drive the processor up to 3.1GHz, and 4GB of RAM should be plenty for running a few work-related apps.
Some modern MacBooks only have a few USB-C ports and require adapters for older hardware. This one comes with ports for Thunderbolt, USB 3, Ethernet, Headphones, SD cards, and FireWire, and there’s even a slot for a Kensington lock. There are plenty of tools out there to manage your cybersecurity, but there aren’t many simpler ways to make sure nobody can walk off with your computer.
