Default Re: New laptop

I would put my vote for a Mac, but I am somewhat of a fanboy. I understand that Mac's still use Core 2 Duo's and such. But honestly, it's a freakin' laptop. I really don't need a quad core and 4870x2 CrossFire. My battery life on my 17" Macbook Pro lasts me through ALL of my classes which is about 5-6 hours worth a day. I just crank the brightness down to half and I'm good. This is a 3.0Ghz C2D, 3GB RAM, and 8600GT.

I'd go Mac if I was you. Superior quality plus if you like to game, steam is now on Mac!

I'd get a Mac but they're a bit more expensive

The only thing a Mac can do better than a PC is look nicer (subjectively), video edit with FCP, and cost more money. Unless you're planning on attending film school, a macbook wouldn't be my first recommendation.
