Hello, how can you convince your mom to buy a mac notebook like a normal macbook air 11 inch or a macbook pro retina or not retina. Anyway, my grandfather (from my mom's side) baught a macbook pro retina display 15 inch that costs 1,600 US dollars to my cousin (From my dad's side). I love programming and I'm looking forward to be a software developer. I already own a macbook white 2009 edition but it lags so much and it is very slow. Everytime I try to program it lags. I keep on telling my mom but she just doesn't want to listen. I baught a samsung notebook windows 8 but it seems so laggy and I hate pc's so my dad wanted to take it to work. How can I ask my mom or convince my mom to buy a mac. In my previous report card I got 7 out of 7 in humanities, 7 out of 7 in spanish, 7 out of 7 in 4 diffrent subbjects. Over the last 4 months I never asked her to buy one, so can anyone help me ask her or persuade her.
