Student here whos laptop got damaged by water :(

 

 

 

Looking to buy a cheap macbook or a cheap laptop.

If its a macbook(Air or Pro, would like 2013 or later, also use lightroom and photoshop so something that can handle that)

 

Prepared to spend upto 900-1000 on a Mac.

 

Any windows laptop, maybe 300-400 laptop in working condition, that has a decent processor (i5 or i7) with an ok gpu would be a bonus. Prefer auckland so I can pick up. Would consider spending more for the right product.

Your parents' contents insurance if you live at home. I'm a student and claimed this way. The excess was quite expensive, but they ended up giving me the latest MacBook Air. The Core (near UOA and AUT) will do an insurance quote for free (student discount).

I use a 2014 11 inch MacBook Air as my daily computer for uni. My brother has the same one as his travel laptop, and he uses it for Lightroom etc. (he's a photographer).

Agree on check with your parents about insurance.. Most students don't have contents insurance, but most students parents do, and some contents policies will cover children's possessions whilst living away from home at school/uni.
