Best compatibility with Ubuntu : Macbook, Macbook Air or Macbook Pro?
I'm considering buying a computer from Apple. I am trying to make a wise choice and select either the Macbook, the Macbook Air or the Macbook Pro.
I am an everyday computer user. I surf the Internet, use Office and play a couple of (rather old) games. I use occasionally programs like Google Earth, Skype, Gimp and Stellarium. I want a computer which can help me organize my music, my family pics and videos. Ideally, I'd like to keep it for 5 years.
So I would like your opinion to help with my choice.
- Which will be more compatible with Ubuntu out of the box?
- Which is the best 'bang for the buck' in regard to what I want to do?
- Is polycarbonate a bad choice compared to aluminium?
- Is it easy to change the HDD to an SSD in these models?
Thanks a lot for your answers!
