Default Laptops

Hi im new to this forum and I have a question. I only have a desktop(windows) and was thinking about getting a laptop. Iam leaning towards getting a MacBook but I am not sure that this is the right choice. Please help me decide. I am pretty tech savy.

yes get one mac os is awesome. you can also use bootcamp to run windows alongside it if you have programs you need to use but require windows. definately get a mac if your budget allows it.

I see no harm in getting a refurbished apple. Apple has great warranties and their tech. support has always been better than any PC maker. Definitely get the apple, besides the refurbished one will save you a few bucks.
