ayo technology

Speaking of things I have to buy this summer, I need a new laptop. My HP is dying and soon to be delegated to my lucky little sister. So my question is: should I take the plunge and get a Mac?

Pros are, it's compact and light with a long life expectancy, and I would look really cool toting around a cute little Macbook (I know, so vain). Also, the aluminum design is so sleek, though I probably won't chalk up $300 extra for the newest style. Cons: I'm not at all Mac savvy (repeat: not at all) and need almost every PC function for schoolwork. Also, would it be wise to take a new laptop abroad? But then again... it wouldn't be smart to bring my old one and have it fizzle out in the middle of the term, right? What should I do? Help!


  1. I'm getting a new laptop too! and Josh is the lucky recipient of my current one. but... I just can't switch to Mac. I love my Windows too much :p haha

  2. ME TOO! But you can get all of microsoft office and other applications on a Mac... so I'm happy. :)

  3. What functions do you need?

    I can't think of anything that requires PC only, except Internet Explorer only websites...

  4. BTW, I dual boot Windows and Mac OS on my Mac. :D

  5. Personally, I always feel bad for the PC guy in commericals, because I think the Mac dude (what's his name, Justin Long?) is just a mean ol' bully.

    That may be completely irrelevant and unhelpful to your question, but honestly, PCs are way cooler in my opinion. Mac is just for aesthetic purposes really. Oh, and I guess the whole never gets a virus thing is appealing to, but apart from that, I think it's a waste of money.
