    Don’t get a MacBook! My sister went to uni and got one and she keeps complaining about how it doesn’t sync up with uni printers, or formatting when submitting coursework doesn’t work when the lecturer opens it in word etc.

    Stick to windows, she can get a shiny apple product later

      Absolutely any laptop these days will play DVDs. You can find 15 year old laptops on eBay for £20 which will play DVDs??
