Hey guys, I know someone here can convince me to buy either one. I'm going to be a freshman this fall at college and I definitely need a new laptop. Originally I was going to buy the Macbook just because it looks sleek and It runs smoothly(not to mention no viruses!) but as of late the HP HDX 16t has captured my heart. I'm split between these 2 beauties. If anyone could tell me which one is worth my money, I would highly appreciate it.

On one side..

Alright I admit I'm a little biased against Apple. But really, I think of Macs more as status symbols because they cost more for the same performance. Case in point: the Mac you're looking at has inferior hardware to the HP, but costs more.
You said it yourself: the Mac looks sleek and runs smooth. But you will really get more performance out of the HP. Not to mention the advantages of Windows, which include gaming compatibility and the simple fact that more programs are available for it. But if you're just the Average Joe type user and don't care about gaming or moderate performance differences, then the best advice is just to follow your instincts. If you want a Mac, because they are sexy and smooth and what-not, go for it.
