    Art-friend got notebooks and sketchbooks at $20 for A4, popular also got.





















    Alright enough with jokes.

    Macs are great, less prone to viruses and worms (though not immune), more system stability, and so-on. Only cons are that some software might not work as well or doesn't support Mac. If you have the extra money get the Macbook (its expensive), else other PC notebooks would do great.

    on the other hand, you might be surprised by how much difference a faster hard drive can make though. a 7200rpm drive will cost an arm and a leg, but the new 500gb 5400rpm drives can match the 320gb 7200rpm hdds and are relatively affordable. eg the WD scorpio blue 500gb.


    * caveat: i own a 1st gen macbook.
    I understand the point about the 5400rpm vs 7200rpm. Sadly, I don't think I can use the 7200rpm's as the internal harddrive without having to purchase leopardx OS itself, and that'll add to the cost..
