Or should it not be done? Mine has died, possibly consider a netbook
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.
surprisingly best buy has some decent prices compared to buying it online. and alleyaddict...your 1 mac probably cost more than their 4 laptops combined
Im a student, and my hp laptop lived three years until I apparently put it in the toilet last night.
just got the new mac book pros in at the UBS... you get a $100 student discount too.
or get the old macbook pros.. they're like $300 off now which is a dang good deal imo
How much did that run you?
Looks like no tigerblood for you. #notwinning
Oh, i'm winning, just not on charlie sheens budget.
Not even close.
Original poster: buy a Mac. Unless you think your **** will be bigger with a windows machine.
i just picked up the 399 laptop from bestbuy with decent spec. phenom n830 4gb ddr3 500gb hd. i figured that's not too bad
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.
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.
im not a mac person either, just make sure you know you get what you pay for
Charley, I would wait for a Best Buy sale on a laptop that has an HDMI connection. I would look at slkickdeals.org and see what the geeks are saying also.
Yeah, id recommend something more mid-range. I love some of the thin and light asus computers that are out there in the U series.
Here you go:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG RF510-S02 NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 640GB HDD 5400rpm DVD±R/RW NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
That said, i will give some credit to apple for their customer service.. i just had a friend of mine who had had tons of problems with her macbook pro 09 model. After taking it in numerous times they're now giving her a new 2011 model as a replacement.
I will say the MBPs out there right now certainly arent bad computers by any means, especially with the new sandy bridge series processors. A bit overpriced, yes, but not bad computers.
