I would love to have the super reliable OSX partitioning system that corrupts files once a month. My friend has a Mac Book Pro and his file system has had the corruption issue 2 times in a little over 2 months!




Lenovo T61p:

Core 2 Duo T8300 (2.4Ghz 45nm)
15.4" WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050)
Nvidia Quadro FX570M (Workstation version of 8600GT)
2GB DDR2-667
250GB 5400RPM SATA HDD
DVD-RW
Intel Wifi 4965AGN

$1278.94

You pay a 96% premium for the Mac Book Pro in this case. The T61p has a better keyboard as well.
This is as close as I could find:

$1750 for a lesser system. Where did you get your price?

Second off, the Macbook is $2000 with similar specs, not $2,500 are your 96% price premium suggestion.

Also, with a student discount, the macbook is $1,800.
I am the source of this price:

If you could make a single post in an apple thread that didn't scream fanboy with the worst of them, I might get my respect for you back.

Powertoys give you 4 desktops. It is free, and MS makes it.
They also do other things, depending on what you want.

It is called Virtual Desktop Manager

Yea, my biggest turn off is that the MACs are really overpriced and few games come out for them.
Other than that, they are great machines.
I do like the fact that none of their computers are particularly underpowered. They keep people from buying a computer-OS combination that don't like each other.

Lenovo always has "sales". The price is never what is shown, I don't see how this is fanboy.

meh...
Why does the macbook pro have less accessory ports (usb/firewire etc) than the macbook? I don't think Apple realizes that more add-ons = better (especially after the air...)
Oh well... As long as ignorant fools think macs are better simply because they are macs, Apple will succeed.

And for all you who have macbooks and keep posting that "you love it" or whatever, who cares? Its all opinion anyway. I have a macbook and I completely and utterly hate it!

As pretty and easy to use as the Macbooks are, I would avoid the basic Macbook. Macbook Pro is the only option.

I know 4-5 people with Macbooks, 1 (my roommate) has constant issues with keys not responding, CD drive not ejecting for a day or two, then completely randomly ejecting it. A few of the other people have experienced similar issues. One did have constant issues with file corruption and has to re-install frequently, but that is another issue all together.

The Pro is the only one I really respect and would be interested in.. if it wasn't so freaking expensive!

But yes if I do win the lottery, its in my top 10 to get items.

A pretty lackluster update.
post #30 of 83
Macbooks are overpriced but they are built pretty soldily. Also, I think they are a niche brand and a fad. My Uncle/Aunt and all their kids have I-pods, nanos, macbooks, etc. Once Mac hooks you, people tend to buy everything they sell no matter how overpriced they are. Mac people are very loyal. They also make alot of stuff like uploading photos to your personal website (iLife), so idiot proof people love it.

The new OSX Leopard is pretty nice though, and has alot of cool features. iWork sucks compared to office however.

Looks like they mostly just updated a few minor things to sucker people into buying new notebooks. Mac does hold their value however compared to PC notebooks.
