Question for anyone familiar with Apple products: I have a ten or 11 year old MacBook Pro that still works - most of the time. Occasionally it just completely shuts down for no apparent reason, then takes forever to reboot. Or if I forget to plug it in and it’s in the sleep mode, it goes completely dead fairly quickly and once it’s plugged back in, takes multiple tries to get it to reboot. Otherwise it’s a good unit with the largest screen and a built in DVD player, I think the last year they made them with one? I mostly use it for typical home computer use - surfing the internet, rarely watching a movie and some word processing with Google Drive for some volunteer work I’m doing with a Catholic periodical. Is there anything simple I can do to avoid it randomly shutting down while I’m using it? Is it worth taking it to an Apple tech shop for it to be looked at? Conversely, would an Mac Mini serve my purposes? Or an iPad? Is there anything a MacBook or iMac can do that a MacMini cannot? I already have the Bluetooth Apple keyboard and mouse, but I don’t have a separate Apple monitor, and unfortunately money is an issue; I can’t afford a new MacBook or iMac. Any thoughts or advice? Any valid reason to go back to a Windows based machine other than cheaper units? I really don’t miss Windows.
