Hi, well my advice is definately go witha a Mac!
I converted to Mac a couple of years ago and haven't looked back since.
Their laptops are just AMAZING...mine haven't crashed ONCE, no pop-ups, viruses, very light and LOTS of storage space oh and they look awesome. It has been one of the best investments I've made also they're very durable. If you go to the Mac store they'll show you everything and you can pick the right laptop for you.

I'm so suprised to see that this thread is so unsucessful.So everybody at TFS has a Mac ? I feel so alone.I personally have an Asus EePc 1005 ha.Like this one :


(gadgets.boingboing.net)

Except,that mine is all black.I absolutly love it,the battery life is great,almost 10 hours (but you can count on 8 hours really,with the internet,Microsoft Words open,music and bluetooth on).The design is perfect,very MacBook Airesque.And of course it's very easy to use,and fit perfectly is pretty much all of my purses.It's not that heavy.Anyway,it's very pratical.The keyboard is great aswell,the touches are not small,like on some other laptops.There's like 3 USB ports on it too,which is pretty cool.So if you want to invest in a netbook,go and buy this one.

i use Samsung NC10 : love the sleek look and how small but still somfortable it is . I stopped using my PC when i bought this baby last November. Of course i would love to get Mac 13'' but it is not in my student budget I use my Samsung all the time , seriously like 24/7, and for now it works very good. I can always take it out to school or some cafe in Old Town

I have been using my Toshiba for the past 5 years or so now. I dropped it twice and spilled water on the keyboard once and it's still working wonderfully. I also have an Acer netbook that I bring to class. It's convenient to carry around, super light, and does pretty much what any regular laptop does.

I have an IBM Thinkpad I got from my mother a few years ago.

Works pretty well.

Eventually thinking about getting an HP Laptop or check out a Macbook, though I haven't owned a MAC in years.

I just installed Windows 7 last night, and so far, I like it muuuuuuuuuuuch better than crappy Windows Vista. It's less of a resource hog and runs less background processes. And my fan hasn't been going super crazy trying to cool down my laptop. I also really like the taskbar and jump lists. :p

I've decided that if this laptop breaks after warranty, which is up in a year, I'll take the plunge and get a Macbook Pro.

^Have you tried the shake thing? Where you shake a window and all your other tasks will just... hide themselves? I use a macbook, but I still get really curious about what pcs have to offer. Gosh I really want to try out Windows 7!

yea, LOL! it's really cool. I also like the snap option, where you drag a window to the side of your screen, and it snaps to take up half the screen. If you drag it to the top, then the window maximizes.

Bought a Macbook Pro 15 today...I had an ibook before and was very pleased with it! I must say my new one is excellent for watching videos!! I only have some problems with the constant resizing of the text size but otherwise I think this one is a winner too

^ change the battery itself, i suppose. battery life decreases with usage, so in time, you'll probably need to get a new battery.

I'm one of the few without Mac (had to use a MiniMac at work though).
My usual laptop is a Dell Inspiron 640m, apart from me ruining two keys (from food drinks...) it has hold up very well...
Then I have an Asus eeePC 901 for skyping and on the go (the Dell is too heavy, 3kg ugh(
