    i used to hate Apple. i remembered when my cousin bought his first macbook pro 5 years ago. I was so mad, i was like why you buying Apple ? freaking expensive and overprice. While his macbook pro still running like new while i was going from HP, Sony, then back to HP and then i decided to get the white Macbook, and i will never go with anything other than Apple. You get what you paid.

    ^^HP is terrible in my opinion. But that is because personally I have never had any luck with them. The samsung ones were new and got pretty good reviews which is why I suggested them. I will stand by the fact that lenovos are rock solid anyways, they are probably the most used in the computer science field. And there are reasons for that.

    IMO, you need to replace your thermal paste! It will run better than new!

    You do know that the only difference between Apple and PC is the software correct? Apple went to intel chips some time ago.

    the brand new macbook airs are worth looking at as well, they are fantastic.

    I was talking about build quality! At the moment I have 5 laptops as I need them for work/school and use them a lot. Every each one of them except the Mac has had some kind of shit going wrong! Got 2 Sony's, 1 HP & 1 ASUS and only my MacBook Pro has been flawless! And it is the one I use when I travel or when I'm by the sea.

    As for the PC counterpart, I was talking about a Windows PC with the same specs.

    Your comparing Apples to Bananas, I know of many Apple priced non Apple laptops with same if not better build quality. Discrediting a 600$ item because it doesn't live up to par with a $1300 item is not cool.

    what are these laptops you speak of?
    i have yet to encounter them. even my Vaio, which is a higher-tier pc doesn't even compare to my dads macbook air in terms of build quality.

    I need laptops for Game Art, modelling and stuff, so they're pretty powerful! And I'm not comparing Apples to Bananas. I said that the same spec PC is relatively cheaper than a Mac. Anyways, even the most powerful and expensive PC's almost cannot compare to Apple. It is known that Apple is a Hardware company and not a software one. (At least until lately)

    HP Envy for one

    I will give apple a round of applause for their trackpad though, unfortunately they have the same internal guts as any laptop except packaged in an aluminum shell.
