just saw a program on my MBP called "partition inspector" is this a program that comes with OS X? I've never noticed it before and didn't see it on my iMac when I had it either

Need help deciding on what to get for a laptop. It's going to be my main workstation for making beats (Reason and Ableton). Thinking of getting either the new macbook pro when it comes out, asus u44sg, or msi x460dx. I would instacopthe asus u44sg, but a lot of reviews have concerns with overheating. MBP seems to be the most reliable for producing though.

Can anyone else recommend other shit? I'm looking for something thin and lightweight. 13-14" display and less than 5lbs.

I love mine. Has the best keyboard for a laptop.

Looking at buying a SSD, but not sure what brand to go with or how much space I'll need to be able to dual boot on it.

Any suggestions?

I have an e220s and it's kinda small so probably won't be getting an x220. The T420 is too bulky for me.

I think you would be better off waiting for Mountain Lion to release this summer

I couldn't agree more. Mountain Lion seems promising.

What do you hope to gain? What can't you do now?

I usually put off upgrading OS as long as I can because newer OS on older hardware usually doesn't mean better performance.

I haven't upgraded to Mountain Lion, but it seems promising from the reviews I've seen. I'm still running snow leopard and is doing good for me.

You keep saying that, "seems promising" but you neglected to actually answer my question. What do you hope to gain, what can't you do now?

The reviews you're also reading are done on current hardware. If you're running 10.6 that means your Mac is at least 18 months old, possibly as much as 4 years old - in which case upgrading won't make a lot of sense unless you have software compatibility issues.

If you buy the Sony, you'll have to wipe it and do a clean install of W7 or Ubuntu, then it will run as fast/problem free as the Mac.

Oh word. Is wiping it clean gonna cost anything? How do I do that?
I feel like a mac is so limited when it's compared to windows, but im probably being ignorant on this one.

It is limited compared to Windows.
Not hating on Mac I have both a Macbook Pro and an Asus desktop. Love em both they are two completely different machines and used for two different things.

Some people will prefer Mac OS, some people will prefer Windows.

I personally like both. End.

Wiping is free, it's just reformatting and installing a non-OEM version of Windows. Sammy and Sony love to pack their laptops full of bloatware, gotta get rid of that. You'll need to get your hands on a copy of W7 though, but that's not hard, just torrent it or ask a friend.

Friend's Samsung Chronos(i7) was slower than my old HP(c2d) when he first got it because of that garbo they put on there. Wiped it, now it runs like a dream.

As for Mac being 'limited', nah, not really unless you're a big gamer. I find the OS is confusing whenever I use a friend's, but I'm sure they'd say the same about my laptop running Ubuntu.
