    Re: Best place in ames to buy laptop

    I know they're expensive, but I have had my macbook pro 13" for two years and haven't had a single problem when my roommates with PC's have gone through four laptops between the both of them.

    They sell them at the bookstore, but you can get like $200 off online if you're any kind of student or a teacher.

    Lol, considering thats the typical reason mac owners buy theirs, as a status symbol.

    Macs are at least 50% overpriced at any time. Buy a PC. If it dies on you in half the time (it wont), you have the remaining money to go buy a new one.

    Bingo.

    I bought an Acer Aspire One netbook from Wal-Mart for $300. Not $300 off, $300. Macs are fine, but they cost too much for what they are.

    Get a cheap netbook. I save everything on flash drives and this thing runs like a dream. I've had it for 3 years.

    I buy Macs because they work and they are easy to use. I'm not a computer guy, I'm just a guy. My computer doesn't define me. It's a tool I need, that's all. I want it to be trouble-free and user-friendly. There's no argument for PCs being as trouble-free or as user-friendly for the average household consumer.

    I dont think ill buy a mac, they are nice and all, but I think i'd get more utility out of 600 dollars in whiskey I can save by buying a pc.
