Too bad its not a PC...
I wish they made the same exact thing. Only a PC version...
Could you install XP on one of those things???
you can run virtual pc... which is terrible. i wonder how hard it would be to gut it
I wish it had 2 mouse buttons built in.
I wish I knew the OS better, I can do pretty much anything with XP and I really like XP.
I wish IBM or Dell would make a high end laptop that was 17" and brushed aluminum.
Does anyone know of any companies that make a laptop as nice?
I know there was a thread earlier this week, but no one responded.
I know toshiba has one, but it is not nearly as nice.
Virtual PC is ok as long as you have enough ram. i never had a problem with it. Just dont expect to do any high end applications with it. That being said, anything you would want to do with a PC in Virtual PC you can do with a mac.
Sony VAIOs comes closest.
Mac > Pc
Apple's ID dept is bar none the best in the world IMO.
OS X > Win XP. It's simply a better OS.
I still use a PC frequently though, but I love my 12" Powerbook.
Gutting a Powerbook and putting in PC stuff is like gutting an NSX and putting a 90 Ford Taurus engine. Macs are so much better... Gotta work with one to understand.
ive worked with them for over 5 years. doing graphics too. im still going to pick a pc.
Sony computers are a piece of crap..
the only thing sony is good for is their displays .. and thats it..
I just got to hold a 17" powerbook today, some kid at college had it (design college).
Awesome build quality and design, shame i dont like(read: hate) the OS
I wish PC manufacturers made laptops that nice. I buy Sony, but they are still not as solid.
I hear ya LEGbEND, PC's are hard to let go... I still miss em sometimes. I can't mess up OSX, no matter how hard I try, and that's why I use it. I don't think people realize how solid it really is.
Just curious, how many people in this thread have actually USED a mac?
Yeah I work with Macs at college and use PCs at home.
PC for me
Out of interest, what do you mean by that?
my first comp was a mac
Performa 631CD.... non powerpc
lol it was alright, but then i hated it. used macs @ school... i agree, osx is much more solid, yeah it looks nice (like it matters) but i still don't like the interface. just preference
i'm digging this one: http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/notebooks/product.cfm?ProductType=4780
if it only had a dvi output
Running 10 things at once, photoshop filters and burning cds, the kinda shit that would give you the blue screen of death on a pc. I never fight with this computer, that's why I love it.
The company I work for makes Windows based trading platforms. I have to have XP to run these. Emulators do not work. Which is why I would not get the Mac. I love the way the look,speed,Etc. But my job makes me need a windows machine. Plus everyone I know has a PC. And the wireless networks around Chicago are all Windows based.
