I'm wondering if somebody can help me decide, preferably someone who owns a mac and isn't biased towards it. I've used a friends Macbook (the very bottom one), and it's quick, looks good and has some nice features.
However, I have £1,100 to spend on a laptop... I'm currently looking at one from http://www.cyberpowerpc.co.uk/ (the Xplorer 90).
AMD Turion TL-56 1.8GHz (x2 Dual Core) 1MB L2 Cache
2048MB Corsair Value 667MHz RAM
256MB GeForce Go 7600
120GB S-ATA150 5400RPM
Wi-Fi 54MB/s a/b/g
Windows XP MCE / With *FREE* upgrade to *Vista Home Premium*
I like the look of Macs and have never had one before. I'm not sure whether I will love it or it will be a 5-minute-wonder. For the equivalent price (I can't get a Macbook Pro) I can get the top MacBook with;
Intel Core 2 Duo // 2.0GHz 4MB L2 Cache
2048MB 667MHz RAM
64~256MB Intel GMA950 Integrated
Mac OS X
I understand the Cyberpower laptop has a slower CPU, but its sufficient for what I need it for (and can play games as well as far as I'm told).
Can anyone help me with what to get (please suggest other laptops around the same price that are better ~ just good as).
