Default I dont know what to do..

Hey all,

Well I just got a job, in Pizza Hut delivery, so I have got a way of getting money now..!

So I can afford a mac, however, I am not sure whether I should get one or not..will it be worth the extra money - or should I just be buying a good Windows one?

Grr..700 is alot to pay, Im 15, and I really need some advice..what do you lot think I should do?

Sorry for making another thread about this, but I dont want 700 going down the drain..

That's another thing, does anyone know where I can get new ones, for cheaper??

Thanks

lol. its just that OSx cant play games. the actual computer will play them alright tho.

well, if u just want to do watch movies, listen to music, and do some homework, then a cheap windows pc will be just fine. u dont need much power if u r only gonna do what u listed.

I want a laptop..

I like macs because you dont need to fuss about with them, Windows is just a pain in the arse.

I want something that sticks out in a crowd as well! If I could get on the damned apple website, I would compare it with Windows laptops.
