You can get very good laptops nowadays that bring 1TB and cost $700-800. I think Lenovo's. HP's are good too, Acer as well.

Macbook=Great laptop, but otherwise you're paying that extra $1k for a name and nothing else that you can get from another laptop.
I disagree.

While you're right in a way. If you plan to use a Mac to do photo or audio work, then Mac is the way to go.

Not that I'm saying windows is sh*t but you will have to do some tweaking and manage the computer properly. A Mac, as gay as this sounds, it just works.

It's much more stable and has a less chance to crash on you. Dj or music production software will push your computer to its limits. If you don't have a stable machine, expect lots of lag and poor latency. You don't want that, trust me.

Plus, a top of the line windows pc will run atleast 1.5k. I'm talking 6gb+ Ram, 2.2+ ghz, 3rd generation i7 intel processor and depends if you choose a normal harddrive or a SSD.

SSD has less memory but the computer will run faster.


If TS plans to just go on boxingscene, facebook, youtube, and write papers for school. Then I don't see the point in buying a mac. Just buy a normal laptop and that will do for your needs.

It all depends who you plan to do with it. Personally I'd go with a Macbook Pro. Although I've seen a nice HP Pavilion that goes for about 850+ on the HP website with nice specs and lots of good reviews. Thinking of purchasing it soon.

Also, I would never get a 13in laptop.

Screen resolution blows.

15 is the best imo. But you gotta check the resolution specs, some 15in laptops are dick.

I have a MacBook air at work and a Asus Ultrabook at home.

Honestly, the MacBook air is kind of a pain for doing some things at work that were easy on a Windows machine.

I almost feel like the Mac should be the one for fun, and the Zenbook for work, but I didn't have to buy the Mac.

so if you get a mac you dont have to worry about viruses?

How is that?

It has its own anti virus program built in for life?
