I recently purchased a laptop, and am super anal with my money. I hate compromising an am fully willing to wait forever before buying something shitty. I was kind of skeptical with all the mac love, and how trendy they are, plus they are expensive and I figured they couldn’t be thaaat could. That being said I was also really skeptical about Vista and read lots of horror stories about it when I was doing my research. I ended up chatting having lunch with out IT guys at work about who was the best etc and they universally said if I bought a PC make sure I could get one without Vista, and to seriously consider mac.
I took their advice and did more research on macs, borrowed a friends for an afternoon and havnt looked back. I went with the Macbook Pro and although it was expensive I can honestly say it is the best computer, not just laptop that I have ever used, it blows my PC desktop out of the water and I officially hate my piece of shit work computer now. That is my experience and I would recommend Macs to you not just for their computers, but their quality of service is awesome, I am super pleased to say that they live up to the hype for once. If you refuse to go mac, the IT guys at work said look for the best warrenty on laptop because they are always at risk, and recommended HP and Sony but admitted that their service sucked, but their laptops were comparable to a regular macbook.
