Default Re: good laptop on $1500 budget?

Check out Sony's FW series. Very nice laptops (I've got one). I'd recommend it to anyone that fits the specs it offers.

Haven't heard much about battery life....beyond that, they seem to be quite reputable, but I've never read up on them in depth.

The MacBook is a decent computer, but it's not suitable for gaming.

You're right. He wanted advice.

That's not advice. It's simply a quote from a person who has no idea what they're talking about.

But they are overrated?
I'm not a fanboy of Windows
And nor do I dislike Mac


But from what I've seen, you can get a setup that out performs a mac for a lower price

To put things in perspective for you, it's like me posting the following -

PCs are overrated
lol
How does that help the original poster? How?

Macbooks price to performance ratio isn't all that good
I wouldn't recommend a Mac to him/her if theyre going to spend 1,500 on a laptop
when they could be getting better performance for something of that price

when people think of a good laptop, they think of macs, and that to me is wrong
BECAUSE THEY'RE OVERRATED

to answer OP: my answer is that they're still overrated because
you pay alot more for something you can get cheaper

is that enough clarification for you 01001010?
