Should MacBooks takeover old computers at schools?
Debate Rounds (2)
They said that they should buy more useful things for our schools. I disagree because MacBooks are extremely useful. A top of the line computer is one of the main necessities of a child's education. Yes, there are older computers, but MacBooks are the best that there are in my opinion. Therefore, it is not "wasting" money on MacBooks, so the older computers should be replaced by MacBooks.
I believe that the older computers should be replaced by MacBooks because of new technology and features included in the MacBooks. With these new features and new technology, students will have a better learning experience in school. A better learning experience means better grades, a possibly college education, and even graduating from college to ensure a good job. Therefore, the old computers should be replace so we can ultimately create more jobs in our economy, thus helping our economy greatly all because of replacing some computers at a school.
First of all, there are clumsy kids out there, even a guy dropped his MacBook earlier in the week, and this is the fact that they are able to carry around these laptops wherever they want to in classrooms. This gives higher chances of damaging the computers, having to spend more money to replace them with a new one. And lastly, the mouse and screen. The old computers had large screens for everyone to see the small words fine, but with the MacBooks, there is a higher chance of the small text giving kids hurt eyesight. The mouse, well, there isn't one on the MacBooks, so scrolling through resources is far more difficult to do compared to the older computers with mouses. And thats a true statement because of the time in class people have, the computers are for finding quick and easy resources to search.
Therefore, MacBooks are more complicated to handle.
First of all, they have not specified what type of MacBook that the older computers will be replaced with. What are they? MacBook Pros? MacBook Airs? The world may never know. Since the type of MacBook is not specified, I believe this weakens my opponents arguments and the entire topic as a whole.
They said that MacBooks are hard to handle, and that clumsy kids drop them. I do not disagree, however I would like to propose a solution. Put cases on them! It's that simple. So, if the clumsy kids out there drop them, they don't break! It's magic!
They also said that the trackpads are hard to use. I disagree. After a while, you get accustomed to them. I am using a Mac trackpad right now, and it's working fine. It's not hard to use at all!
There is also a money issue, but let's weigh the impacts. Money or education? I'd choose education.
Through the points I have stated, I believe that I have won this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: I thank both sides for debating this issue at their respective ages. Both sides made a fair number of unsubstantiated claims. On the whole I believe than Pro presented a clearer argument.
