I know you are tempted to buy a MacBook pro for ~ INR 50,000. My advice to you is - a) Go and check the calendar b) Realise that it is 2016 c) Go back and start considering the MacBook Air and newer Retina Pros. PS: Don't buy a Macbook Air with 4GB RAM either.
The Good
  • Has a SD Card slot
  • Hey, it's a Mac after all
The Bad
  • Very bulky design for a Mac (Non-Mac users, you may feel like home)
  • Display looked so good before you saw a Retina Mac. Sorry, I would hate it today. But Windows users, you will still like it.
  • Who puts 2 USB ports so close to each other?
  • No HDMI slot
