    Get a Mac by all means.
    The new Toshiba has a shitty display and gets really hot.
    The Dell is a Dell.

    Plus the Toshiba gets really hot.
    There are a ton of reviews on the three.
    but I'd go for the Mac. You can never go wrong with one.



    Well do you?

    Well, with money as no object, bootcamp'd Macbook pro.

    Otherwise, Build your own Acer if you're a penny-pincher like me

    Or go with the toshiba. I was planning on picking up a satellite for college. On sale at staples or something. The only problem is that you should open up that remove programs dialog STAT!

    Also, why is mac always quoted as "graphics and music"... while Window's target is mocked.

    When it comes to business applications, where computers actually help productivity *gasp* it's windows and/or custom Unix kernels.

    Let's just say, I wouldn't take a mac to MIT if you value your dignity.

    Brawny, I agree. If I was an engineer I would have a Windows build.

    But I'm a psychology Major (possible Bio minor) which puts me in CAS at my school (college of Arts and Science)





    I'm a Liberal Arts major, and I use a Mac

    I'm most likely late to this party, but I have a toshiba, love it, had an hp, was good for when I got it, and Macs are great, just expensive, any way you slice it you should be good, just stay away from compaq and can't say that I've ever liked any dell I've used.

    Also, why all the dell haters?

    It's gotten a lot better over the years.

    The XPS line runs with the alienwares nowadays and you don't pay for the name quite as badly.

    Well I have a lot of friends in college who have them and I don't care for them, and my parents had a dell desktop that gave us nothing but problems so thats my reasoning.

    As for the XPS, yea they're great, just expensive, but so are mac's so it depends on whether or not you want viruses or gaming capabilities (correct me if I'm wrong).

    You sir, are wrong. LOL... jk

    Spyware/virus scanner, and a hardware firewall will do you fine. As well as smart surfing on the internet. (What?! Limewire has virusessss?). I'd much rather run a scan every few weeks and be able to play games.

    Dell is just the build....the mobo's, video, psu's and everything else is all stock .... My company's Inspiron 5000 does it's job perfectly. It's decent build quality too.

    The new satellite is sexier than an I-book IMO too. :P

    If you're talking about the toshiba satellite, it is quite sexy that's what I'm using right now, love the thing, so much better than the hp I had, but that hp was 2 and a half years old.

    WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T GET A DELL!
    Dell labtops are well-known to failing. Don't get macs, because they are second to window users anyways.
    I suggest HIGHLY Toshiba out of your list. (HP is best)

    Just trust me on this one.

    If you're not used to the Apple OS, then don't go for Mac either.
    I've always used Toshiba. Good stables PCs.
    Do you work in IT?

    my dad does, been in the business 15 odd years, head of IT in fact at a good firm, he buys dells, plenty of dells, dells are good.

    and why not go for Mac. the OS takes about 10-15 mins to actually get used, it is so simple.


    At the end of the day, a top spec Windows laptop will do only what windows does.
    A top spec Mac Laptop, will do everything a windows laptop would do, as well as all of apples features. 2 for the price of 1? or just buy one get no deals. your choice at the end of the day.
    Mac Expert.
