dell is garbage, literally the worst you can buy out of Mac, HP, all the other top names...im not counting bullshit like acer


my computer has never had a single problem in my year of owning it.

Macbooks are garbage and hip.
learn sumfin.

sure they are fine if you are using firefox (oh god safari) and itunes, but they cannot handle photoshop or anything.

^Co-sign on what Fest said...I know a lot of designers and they all personally use macs along with the studios they work in.

The simple fact that I don't have to worry about viruses and updating some shitty anti-virus software everyday is worth the extra couple hundred bucks.


iMovie has unexpectedly shut down

well, there goes my final project for digital film-making


If you're using iMovie in a digital film-making course, drop out.

Build a computer.
Macbooks are terrible.

My computer (Dell XPS 1530) was the same price as a macbook (1,300$)

4GB Ram.
15" Screen (1440x990).
300+ GB HDD.
Nvidia Gforce 8600.
And totally customizable.

Learn about computers.
The Macs at school are trendy as hell, but when i try to open 3-4 .tiffs in photoshop, it nearly explodes.
end

i got the same, + free bluray upgrade
all in all, pc > macs.

anyone with a PC have a real reason to avoid Macs? specific issues

honestly, cuz all these application quiting/not handling stories do not hold up, they're cute but doesnt really happen like that

im running safari, firefox, slingbox, vmware/vista and logic right now, and theres no signs of it not handling it at all imo

in my short experience with PCs (XP/Vista) i got waaay more errors, CPU problems, driver issues, lags, etc etc blah blah

Hardware failure rate that I've experienced is about on par with both OS's. They're just that OPERATING SYSTEMS. Their hardware may be slightly different, but at the end of the day it still comes from the same vendor.

Hell, the Mac OS is just a Linux based platform. B.T.W Macs & Windows based computers are both PC's. =/

^Pro? like Logic/Protools/Final Cut Studio

the business side of PCs are cool and all like at grocery stores but honestly that doesnt affect most consumers like it does corporations or businesses

idk lol. the arguments arent fairing too well

i just realized this is pointless arguing about why mac/pc is better than the other when this kid is simply asking what's a good laptop to buy to do simple stuff like surfing web and occasionally type up essays for class.

I recently convertered from a PC to a Mac. I wouldn't even really say that though. Since Mac switched over to Intel based chips, I still have a "PC". I had always used Windows, ever since 3.1. It was fun, it was exciting. But, eventually we all have to grow up.

What I can do on a Windows based system, I can now do on a Mac. Hell, even Linux is catching up with Windows on the things it can do, I'd even say it is there. I'm not gonna bash any operating system, each have their own plus and minuses. You have to look at what you're gonna be doing with it.

If you're gonna be typing up papers, surfing the net, listening/watching music and video, or plan to do some sort of image/video or even music editting. Go with a Mac. Simply based off personal experience. Whenever I'd try to do image editting and video editting(all amature stuff), my Windows would freeze up or the program would crash. I'd have what I considered a decent system. It had the 3.0 GHZ processor, the 3gig DDR2 ram, the ATI/Nvidia card, all that stuff. It'd still freeze. I wouldn't say it was my hardware, could have been, but to this day I believe it was either the software wasn't properly coded or Windows wasn't.

Since switching over, by chance I may add. My parents had bought the Mac, based off the commercials on tv. However, my mother could not figure out how to use it. Since I had experience with Linux, which OS X is based off of FreeBSD, I would always swing by to help her out on it. She eventually gave up and bought a new HP desktop. I had experience a major crash in March, either I was hacked, virus, or system final gave up. Either way, I paid my folks some cash for the Mac and I have yet to try and bring back my desktop PC. Simply because I can do all my image editting and video editting and the Mac won't even hesitate.

Sure, it doesn't have the processing power my desktop does, or the large amount of ram. It's simply because Apple really tweaked the OS and hardware to run perfectly together. Yes, you pay more. But, you aren't paying more for hype, coolnes, or any other reason you can think of. Sure, some people buy a Mac because they think they will be cool, some people buy them because they know Mac's are tuned in just right to work with the hardware they are provided with.

I don't need Windows anymore to run a video game I may want to play. I can get VMWare, Parallel, CrossOver, or if I really truely wanted too, I can Boot Camp Windows. Sure, I can't upgrade my sound card, video card, or swap in a new motherboard. I simply won't need too for a few more years. When you buy a Mac, you're getting some of the most recent hardware on the market. Windows is nice if you want to do stuff. Linux is nice if you never want to worry about viruses. Mac, however, combines those two. When I open Camino, it runs and it runs fast. When I click on Transmission, it starts up fast. When I turn my firewall off. I don't even have anti-virus software installed. No need for it.

But, I will say this. My freedom won't last. Every year the virus, spy/malware stats for Mac and Linux rise. Simply because people are opening up their eyes and seeing that there are other efficient, stable, and very appealing operating systems out there. Which is great because prices for everyone will be fair.

If you got the money, get a Mac. If money is a issue, get a Windows based laptop. It's that simple.

ps. I can right click no problem. Since my mouse and keyboard are USB devices, my Mac reads them just fine.

the best part about apple laptops is the multitouch on the trackpad
soooo much easier to scroll down with 2 fingers than using one finger on the right hand section of the trackpad to scroll on dells which sucks
