Neither. Professionals don't buy teenager's equipment. They would be using Toughbooks or other true workstations that they probably made themselves. It's like you don't even know what professional is.

And LOL. Godjobs goes to his professional meetings in jeans and sneakers, are you saying that Godjobs isn't a professional?

I'm rattling your cage because I'm hoping the glaze will come off your eyes. I have faith in you.

I fail to see how the Macbook Pro is a teenager's equipment, although since I am a teenager I can understand why.

As you mentioned the Toughbook: I think it looks like a toy. I did a bit of research and couldn't find a laptop that looked quite as good as the MBP, plus I don't see the price as outrageous (granted I have spent over U$650 on my video card alone, my price views are a bit skewed).

Steve Jobs is an exception. How many business owners do you know who have the same practice?

If you had the choice to get one laptop for work/college out of any laptop, which would you pick?

Probably just a basic 6-cell battery. Not like that nuclear reactor which goes into a mac. =P



(Battery seen on the far right. Looks like a 12cell battery.)

Besides. If it's ontop of your office desk, there's obviously a power outlet you can leech from.

For the same price, what you lose in battery life, you gain in power. Tenfold compared to a MBP.

Right, but I did mention college too, where I might not have an outlet near me at all times. Looking at a worst case scenario I'd need a battery life of ~5 hours while typing up notes.

Why dont you go ahead and search for some reviews. I've found this bit of data on one of their laptops wading thru specsheets.

1 Removable 8 cell smart Lithium-Ion battery pack 76.96WhA

I'd say that'd give about a range of 3-5 hours depending on usage(eg. 3 hours Benchmarking Crysis while in class.).

Toughbook looks like a toy? Riiiight. Guess the military likes toys.

The MacBook Pro does look good, I have one myself, but it's no more professional than any other notebook. A true professional buys something to efficiently complete whatever task they're doing, looks come last.

Let's say I use Photoshop for work, my budget is $1000. Do I get the HP with a 17" screen and 8GB of ram or the MacBook with a 13" screen and 2GB of ram? Photoshop likes ram and a larger screen is easier to work with, so I'd get the HP.

Now if my budget was $2000, then sure, I can afford a MacBook Pro with 8GB of ram. But why? There's no need, a PC will do the job just as well.
