I am a long time enthusiast of Mac products and a year or two ago I got a fantastic HP laptop with Vista, its works great and I havenít had a problem. Though after living around Macís for so long the temptation for converting over to a Mac is almost too much to bear . I have been looking at my options and I have narrowed down to the new 17Ē Mac book pro. With the new battery life and the applications for these computers I think that itís a good choice. They immediate struggle is its $3000, the cost is not out of my range but I want to make sure I am making the right decision; I am going through a few blog sites and asking friends for their opinion in this matter.
Here are my questions for you, Mac specialist:
-I have one more year in high school, is it worth to get the computer now or wait till university for the next best thing?
-What else could be done to make the Mac so much better that I would want to get it? The battery power in the new 17Ē has been updated, the screen could be effected but with the new TVís and projectors I donít need a crazy amount of quality, in terms of ram and hard drives the tech now is good and while that can been improved even in a few years this tech will still be fast and strong.
-Applications can always be downloaded and new tech can always be learned, so what are your suggestions? Any tips on getting a deal? Are there new things to lookout for? I donít want to spend a lot of cash but I want to enjoy it thatís why I am going with the ĎMac book pro.í
Thanks for your input. Please answer directly and to your opinion, the less flattery for the Macís and more criticism the better.
