It looks better than newegg links in your sig

Yeah, that makes sense.

Basically, if it's worth it to her to spend an extra 1k for looks, that's fine, and I was just trying to help her accomplish the same thing for less, if it was possible.

Her mind isn't made up, which is why she asked me for advice before the purchase.

I just felt obligated to mention that if its PURELY performance that she's after, with her needs, she can accomplish it with a budget laptop. And on the other hand, if it's also about style, and that a mac-book is the perfect fashion accessory, and she's comfortable spending the money on that, then that's fine too.

I mean, people spend thousands on a frikken purse as a fashion accessory. I'll never judge someone for wanting to spend extra money on cosmetic appeal.

Anyways, the whole point of this thread was just that I was going to see if it was possible to get that sexy pink Mac-Book Pro case and stuffing a more reasonable budget laptop inside it.

Appreciate the answers!

@nagle3092:

lol, at first I thought you were insulting my rig, then realized you were just showing me a nicer way to display my specs Thanks!

On the contrary, there were so many fast replies that by the time I made my follow up post, my questions had already been answered. Not my fault there isn't a "delete post" button, or I would have used it.
