I love my macbook but hate the extra accessories needed. Went to buy a mini displayport cable so I could hook up my Macbook to my TV, $44.99...didn't bother

No lagging.

No annoying spyware to eff up your comp.

No freezing.


And I don't even have an anti-virus.

A year and a half after I bought it my laptop is still running as well as it did the first time I turned it on.

That's worth the extra 20% IMO.

Couldn't agree more. I've had a Dell notebook for 5 years now, my GF has had her Macbook for about the same time. I've used both and there's no contest imo. When my DELL dies which btw it's not far from doing, i'll be getting a MAC and i won't hesitate to pay the extra cash.

BTW, 1/2 the price? An iPad is 550-800$. What size notebook do you have?
11.6 inches
$350
and I need a keyboard. you can get one with the iPad but its another $100

never understood the purpose of a tablet... unless you work on a factory floor and you have to check inventory

my mom had a macbook air and the screen messed up after 1 month. you have to hit the back of the screen to get it to work.

I've never had a blue screen of death
One thing I did notice is that having no anti-virus is better than having it. No viruses since I bought my netbook 1 1/2 years ago

Why do things always come down to, this is better than that etc. I hear it with with PS3 and Xbox and I hear it with Apple and PCs. So annoying.

Anyways, the entire Apple has no viruses stuff is crap. It depends on numerous factors and I've seen users have with Macs get a virus.

The day the multi-national companies decide to go Mac, you can bet that Mac will be seeing spyware, viruses etc. It's a matter of time.

And after looking at buying a computer and comparing them both, I've realized that I'm paying for the brand rather than actually purchasing a good machine. For the cost of a Mac I can get a powerful laptop.

+1 Not many would bother to develop viruses and the like that could only affect 10-15% of computers, it's very very inefficient.

Gotta get the comp that best suits your needs.

That's all that should matter.

I love my macbook pro. I'd also love a laptop that I could've constructed for the same price (which would probably be much more powerful).

Like everything else with technology it's just preference. Myself I've used both and i prefer MAC, I also know people that have both and I've heard about a lot more problems about PC's, including myself. Get what you want for whatever your needs are.
