Do you think MacBook 11inch would be good for Nursing School? Or is it too small?

    I like the 11 inch MacBook laptop because I think it is very light and easy to get in my purse or backpack. Very light weight and just very practical but what do you guys think? Let me know

    Would this be your only computer? I think you might find it to be too small for doing research and writing papers. However, you could purchase a monitor and a keyboard to hook it up to so that you could work on it more comfortably when not in school.

    I have an 11" laptop as well as a 17" laptop. I find myself usually using the smaller one both at home and on the go. It works for me!

    I have a MacBook Pro...and don't really like it. I'm planning on getting a netbook for school. Mac is not very user friendly, but if you are a Mac person then go for it.

    I have the 11in MacBook and have gotten through my online MSN with it (6 more weeks!). I love it! I find it much more user friendly than windows! I have written a lot of papers with it with no problems! I would go to the Apple store and play around on one before you make your decision. Good luck!

    I have a 13" Pro, but was trying to get an 11" Air (the VA wouldn't go for the Air). The 13" was fine, and I think something smaller would have worked well, too.

    The size and weight are definitely convenient. I took mine everywhere while in school.

    I think the 11" mac air would be fine. Go with the base model. 4GB Ram and I5 processor.
    Use the $100 difference between the 11" and 13" model towards a 21" - 23" monitor or laser printer for home.

    Good day:

    Why not a 13" Macbook Air for the extended battery life over the 11"?

    Thank you.

    I have 13 inch MacBook that I love. I wouldn't mind having an 11 inch MacBook and probably would have gone with that if I purchased it myself. But this was a gift and I am not complaining. Really one of the best gifts I've ever gotten for nursing school.
