We are trying to help, and you have been given choices already. Make up your mind. If not just get a MBP stick w7 on it and call it day.

I'm sorry trying to help you bothers you. I apologize if some of my questions bother you. Again the purpose is not to upset but to get information to help.

From reading further down I notice that this is for your parents? Again if you want to go with the appearance and not the actual build quality of stability then by all means continue to fruitlessly search. An i7 is insane and 6GBs RAM for the general consumer who doesn't do gaming or edit movies, music, and pictures. It's about as asinine as putting an F1 or a V12 engine in a Prius. The more information we have about the needs/uses this machine needs to fulfill the better options we can give you and the more options we can. Because we really can't come up with anything beyond what we've already mentioned to you earlier between the envy, mbp, ext.

AsAnAtheist and I (hi five fellow atheist) have disagreed about the whole aluminum thing and I absolutely love my macbook pro and the aluminum unibody was definitely a huge part in my decision.

Though I think I have to agree here since you are on a $1500 budget I would not make it a huge deciding factor. Especially if this computer isn't going to be moving a lot a plastic PC is not that bad. There are some really well built plastic PC's.

Since you want a computer with windows I cannot suggest a Macbook Pro, you are really limited to the HP Envy thats all. I heard some good things about the ENVY line but some horrible horrible things about HP computers so it just makes me skeptical.


Just my $0.02
