Is Doom still around? We used play it on the company's LAN in the 90's.

My niece just asked me for advice about Macs. I don't have a clue and nowhere else to ask.

She has iPhone (does it matter?), she has a budget of around $1200, she is not gonna use it for work but school, net(flix), not games. She would like to spend as little as possible. She was saying something about MacBook 2020 (wtf is that) and difference between i3 and i5 (ok).

Can you help me here? Thanks in advance.

Apple have just started a major change and are switching from Intel processors to making their own. So if she wants one, make sure she gets one with an M1 processor. Luckily, they've put these processors in their cheapest models first, and the M1 Macbooks usually outperform the more expensive Intel ones. Personally I'd just get (and did) the base model Macbook Air. It's $1000, which is extremely cheap for the performance you get (especially when you consider that it doesn't even need a fan, so runs completely silently - trust me, you don't know what you're missing with this). Having said all that, if I was just buying a computer for a bit of school work, I don't know if I'd bother spending a grand on a computer at all.

I bought a new Windows one for $600 with a solid state hard drive. I wish I did this 5 years ago, it's lightning fast booting up, and fast enough for me at web, pritning, file explorer, things like that. If I wanted to play modern games a new video card would probably do the trick.

A £300 Chromebook will happily run Netflix, Youtube and anything you're likely to need for schoolwork. Add a refurb PS4 for games to that and you've still got a couple of hundred quid change. As IWS said, unless you want to edit videos or any other serious number crunching a Mac is overkill.

She is 16, she wants to be in style, I guess, and she was working for the money. So base model with M1 if possible. Thanks, guys. I was hoping for Macdoc to sell me something :) but this will do.

I will try to talk to her about Chromebook because it will indeed do the jobs she needs to be done, I thought.

edit: is there anything to be gained from having iPhone and Macbook? Is it same platform like Windows phone (thats a thing right?) and PC or its irrelevant these days. For file transfers and I dunno what. She also has some headphones for iPhone, specialized I think.

I think there are certain things like Airdrop that make it a bit more seamless, but overall I don't think it makes much difference nowadays. A lot of stuff that's advertised as being for Mac is bollocks. It will work fine on anything, they just put "for Mac" and make it white, and then they can charge more for it. I've got a Logitech mouse and I bought the Windows one because it was cheaper. It works fine on both systems.

It seems to me that a lot of Apple gadgets are overrated. They seem to be quite good in terms of parameters, and quite reliable, but there are gadgets from other brands that work no worse, but are significantly cheaper. So why pay extra for a logo?

Mine was cheaper than the almost brand new Windows laptop it replaced and outperforms it in benchmarks (despite being silent, having a better screen, touchpad and 4 times longer battery life). With Intel ones I'd agree with you, which is why I'd never bought one until now, but the new M1 processors are actually pretty good value for money. Dunno about iPhones. I've never spent more than $150 on a phone because I only use them for the basics. I'd also generally avoid all of the overpriced official peripherals.

you also pay for that seamless interaction.
I got iPhone, iPad, Mac and my iPod pro just go from one to the other without interruption.
The stuff is designed to interact with each other nearly perfectly.
