I seem to go through a laptop a year being an abuser of machines... I am on my third notebook. I have had it for a month and I love it. I bought myself a siemens pro v2020. doubled on the ram as well. wi-fi means I carry it everywhere! you just buy credit in advance like your mobile and pay as you go. brilliant! And i can burn music and dvds to my hearts content! and its encased in titanium ! what more can a gal ask for?! Picked up a stylish jil sander case to transport it and all! but best of all it is utterly silent.
Laptops seem cheaper over this side of the pond imo

DDR! Go DDR (or better). This can't be said too many times. Seriously, you could have 1 gig of SDRAM and it would still be rubbish.

As I've already said - Macs are a total rip-off. They cost more for less performance.

Depends what you want. If you want your laptop to look good then perhaps you should by a Mac or a Sony VAIO. If you don't want a Mac but you do want someone to help you if it explodes then buy from a large reputable firm. If you just want the most bang for buck then go for some tiny unheard of company that has dirt-cheap prices.

Pink - if you end up going for a computer besides a Mac, go for a Vaio or a high-end HP. I wouldn't recommend a cheap laptop because it is easier to 'screw' a laptop up so to speak. there are tons of unknown companies that make awesome PC 'built to order' desktop machines, but you want a laptop from a big name because there is more that goes into the manufacturing of a laptop - more things that can go very very wrong.

As for Prince's performance thing, I 100% agree that games on Mac suck big time. but once again... as someone that owns both a PC and a Mac (stitting side by side on the same desk no less) I lean towards a Mac.

whichever you buy, always read consumer ratings and reports, because the internet is overwhelmed with them! and I hope you find a model that suits your needs.

Stylewise I think Sony's are best from the pc department but they are quite overpriced.



And then there is of course Acer's ferrari laptop. :p

technically the second computer is my boyfriends, but since everything he owns is 50% mine, and everything I own is 50% his ...

I also have a computer at my parents place...

I'm not owning an laptop right now but I'm definitely getting one soon. I want an 14" iBook (with 768 MB RAM) because it's beautiful and I love Os X (My dad has an iMac G5 ... lucky bastard).

(Actually I look at the website all the time. Meh ...)

^ Depends what you want/need to use it for. I'm a big fan of Apple's new MacBook/MacBook Pro.

Here's two links to them

No kidding. My school district recently got a levy passed allotting taxpayer money to lease out iBooks to every student 5th grade and older. Not only do they suck, but they locked up any feature that would make it interesting and they make every student get one, even if they already have a laptop of their own-and it's $70 a year.
