I don't know that much about computers so I need your guys' help. My HP notebook is getting in bad shape, I have about 9 different colored lines running down my screen, and if I have my screen opened to certain angles, the screen will go completely blurry and I have a feeling that it will be out of commission soon... So I am thinking about getting a new laptop soon. At this moment I think that I am going to buy some sort of Macbook. (I am not a gamer, I just want a new computer for school and to last for a long time while maintaining quality). I was just wondering what is the worst things that happen to Macbooks? I was wondering if they ever freeze up like my HP does? Do Mac books get the lines down the screen like my HP has? Do Macs last longer than other notebooks? What are the downfalls of Macs compared to other notebooks other than gaming quality? I also am wondering what the difference is in quality of a Macbook and a Macbook pro? Is the Macbook pro really worth it? Thanks for the help everybody.
