One thing I like about the Macbook is the solid metal case. Does Asus or any other PC manuf. do this?
I looked at the Asus site and didn't any computer that looked like the Mac.

I determined what was the best Computer and bought it two weeks ago.
I got a Macbook Pro. It has a 500 GB HD and 4 MB memory.

I know, I said a Mac was out of the question., but after searching for the right PC and seeing my friends Macbook. I couldn't take it anymore.

I wish I had bought a Mac 5 years ago. I love using this thing. I let my wife have my old PC and I hate to use it anymore. I still have to go back to it at times to get some of my Photos and data off it.
I don't like Bill Gates and I'm glad I'm not ever going to send him any more money.

There's been some questions, but I have really hadn't had a problem with the new OS

I used a Acer 20inch media laptop whilst I was off work after an operation. Cannot remember the modle number but it was soemthing like 9900.
Awesome machine. 4gb ram twin 500 mb hard drives and 20inch screen. Built in dvt tuner and blueray player.
I ran cs3 on it and everything was super fast. weighs in at 7.5kg not exactly portable but still amazing. If I had the money I would buy one!

I have 3, an HP DV7, Compaq and a Lenovo, all Intel 2.0 amd 4 gig ram.
The only comment I offer is: If you buy an HP, or Compaq spend a couple days just stripping out all the "garbage" the HP and Norton places on the self loading O/S. After I stripped all the unnecessary trash off the hard drive, defragged and cleaned the registry it runs great even with Vista.

Yeah, that's the only thing you hear from Switchers (who have the benefit of knowing what they are talking about)!
