Everyone says how bad Windows is, they complain about everything Microsoft and other big companies do. However, I find Windows to be a good OS. Sure it is not the best OS there could be, but what is perfect.

I will certainly try OS X out. However, I am just not that enthusiastic about it because of compatibility issues and familiarity issues.
I'll help you out. Feel free to PM me. Always here to help out a fellow Mac user.

I agree. Apple made a smart bussiness move with BootCamp, whether you personaly agree with it or not, so they'd be crazy to not include Vista support once it comes out.

You missed the point. I can't find and PC notebooks that have system configurations, reliability and custom service like Apple.

Look at the customer support ratings.



You simply cannot touch Lenovo (IBM) or Apple. Lenovo is more designed for a workstation / top-end business user. I really like what Apple puts in their systems.

Its not bootcamp not supporting it, it had something to do with the Apple hardware its self. The guy I know thought it would be fixed soon, though.

What's perfect?
Linux with XGL!

(Srry.. couldn't resist)

And I believe it with IBM! I STILL use my T23 lappie.. (1.2Ghz P3, 30Gig HD) OLD and runs GREAT

Do you have a link to where this information was compiled from? I don't disagree with any of the information, but I'd like some credibility.

My personal story can describe the quality of Lenovo's tech support.

My dad's T60p had a plastic piece of the frame fall into the monitor. He called tech support, and they overnighted him a pre-paid box. He put his T60p in, gave the number on the box a call, and 1.5 hours later a guy came a picked it up. (That was Friday around 4:30 PM). Monday morning at 8AM the same guy was back with the computer. Not only had Lenovo replaced the monitor, they replaced the harddrive that had a suspected faulty component, put a new battery in (everyone knows about the battery problems), and updated the BIOS and all the drivers. When you get all that, and a 60 hour turnaround, that is service....
