get the mac.
As for Apple, they don't have this problem because they fully control the hardware design to their own exacting details. Mac OS X' customers are basically people like you and me.
Bro, a question my lappy running 32bit window vista and my pc is running 64bit window vista. Do I need to get two window 7? Is there a 32bit and 64bit window 7?
This point is correct if you are referring to the older generation of Mac product where Apple design their own processor and MB. With the intergration of Intel CPU, there is nothing call Full control of hardware design. basically if you open up the macbook, what you see is more or less like a PC but with a special touch of apple when it come to OS.
The only think what keep me with apple was that their OS is backward compartability, Mac 10.5 can be run on Ibook G4 series, Accept for this latest version of OS, sadly minimum requirement is an Intel CPU.
Never a less, in the long term, its what you are confortable with not necessary best in the market or most trendy one.
*window user will say window good ... mac user will say mac good. But I will give the thumbs up to REdhat ... lolx
If you are so passionate about what you are doing to be the best, there is no other way but to get the best hardware for the job .... and from what i see, you dont need anyone to convince you .... at your level, the best use Macbook Pro ....
always the Light, .... always.
Save your money. Just upgrade to Windows 7. You get to reuse all of your windows applications too.
If you plonk down 2k-ish for your new MBP, you'll still need to buy apps (CS4 etc)..
Up to you though. Haha.
PS: I use both MBP and PC daily.
I use it for e-mail, presentations, etc. For any serious product demos, I use Ubuntu 9.04 running inside a VMWare. Hope this gives some perspectives
Only for those who "Dare".
mate, Sony Z.
up to 8GB RAM, 2.80ghz core 2 duo, expresscard, 1.5kg (!!!!! almost as light as a netbook)
the screen is abit weird in that it's 13.1" across which makes a 16:9 ratio, but that allowed the overall dimensions to be shaved down quite abit. I'm using a Sony SZ which is the predecessor (2kg) and they removed about an inch of width on that computer.
If you're looking for something light, that's a good way to go with Windows 7
btw I have a MacBook Pro 15", and I'm really unimpressed.
There are alot of things which are normal in the SZ which are now considered normal features in the Mac, like switching between speed/stamina and better battery life (I was averaging 3 hours on Speed mode with my SZ in XP, should be closer to 3.5 for Z), plus the screen actually tilts back quite abit on the sony.
Plus the screen for the Sony's just so sexy lah. so thin
