Delta Rents a huge range of MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs!
So now that you have decided to rent an Apple Macbook Pro or an Apple Macbook Air at a sensational weekly rate from Delta Rentals, the only problem is…. which one is the right one for you?? We have the widest range of Brand New Apple products to rent from. This not only includes all the models of the Macbook Air and Pro, but also the iMac range and the iPad & iPad Mini Range.
These Apple products are all offered under Delta’s standard rent to own plan which thousands of our customers enjoy.
Let’s start with the size. The MacBook Air is much thinner than the Macbook Pro. The MacBook Air is practically exactly as it claims to be, ulta thin and ultra light. The MacBook Pro is bulkier however it also has a DVD Drive which the Air does not.
Both laptops are powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core ‘Haswell’ processor. The MacBook Pro comes with a dual-core Core-i5 clocked at 2.4GHz with a Turbo Boost of up to 2.9GHz and 3MB L3 cache as well as an Iris subsystem. In comparison, the MacBook Air adopts a much slower dual-core Core i5 model clocked at 1.3GHz with a Turbo Boost of up to 2.6GHz with 3MB L3 cache plus an Intel HD Graphics 5000 GPU.
Having a much more powerful processor and more advanced graphics capabilities means that compromises had been done. The processor on the MacBook Air for example is an ultra low-voltage model which would explain its 100% Turbo Boost capabilities. Hence, while the 95Whr battery that equips the MacBook Pro may well offer nearly twice the capacity of the one in the MacBook Air, the latter trumps its big brother when it comes to battery life with up to 12 hours worth of wireless web browsing, 50% more.
The Macbook Air comes with a super fast 128GB Flash drive compared to the Base Model Macbook Pro’s 500GB. So the edge in speed is with the Air in this regard, however the pro has the storage space advantage.
The rest of the specification is remarkably similar on both devices with a Facetime HD camera, two speakers, two microphones, a full-size backlit keyboard, a multi-touch trackpad and OS Mavericks (that comes with an assortment of apps).
In conclusion, choosing either will depend on your priorities. The MacBook Air wins when it comes to battery life, overall portability and storage capacity while the MacBook Pro will appeal to those looking for a cheaper and more powerful solution with a much sharper, higher resolution screen.
