I am going into college in 3 years and i don't know what laptop to get. I really want a Macbook Pro but i'm not sure if its really worth the extra money. I would be doing programming and having a computer major so i don't know if this changes what i would need on a computer. If a Macbook Pro isn't a good choice, what other options would there be?
I would get a PC, for the following.. PC=Variety of specs, options, quality, prices, vendors, support Mac=One vendor, limited options, still more expensive. Look below for more information.. Today, Macs use a subset of PC hardware. Why spend extra to get the same CPU chips, graphics cards and OS X isn't as secure as you think.. Don't believe the lies that Macs are better than PCs at graphics/animation.. Dreamworks Animation under studio click on Technology of Animation, an independent film maker I know uses PCs, a graphic artist I used to know uses PCs also. A number of PCs can also run OS X (Mac OS) as well just that Apple makes it illegal in order to get Market share.. The reason why Mac can run native Windows is because it is using a subset of PC hardware, If you decide to buy a Mac for running Windows, you will still have to get the same virus/spyware protection, and run into the same issues as a regular PC. Now is a Mac worth buying for OS X? I say: NO... for the following reasons... ADVANTAGES WINDOWS : Aprox 90% of the market is Windows and most PCs have windows already pre-installed. 1) Some websites require Internet Explorer, to run IE on Mac you really get ies4osx which is the Windows version of IE running really buggy and illegal if you don't have a legitimate copy of Windows. 2) Supports more devices (printers and other things you hook into the computer). 3) More business software/games 4) Want the dock on OS X (Mac)? google/yahoo rocketdock, objectdoc. 5) Used by businesses. ADVANTAGES LINUX : 1) FREE (most versions are) 2) Install software by either 1) Synaptic Package Manager, 2) Add/Remove 3) Opening a .deb or .rpm file (depending on distribution) 2) Like the Mac OS X effects? go yahoo/google COMPIZ FUSION which can do any cool effect a Mac can do and many ore.... (there is no flickering when you use it like on the video, not sure why the person has the flicker) 3) Mac OS X Doc? google/yahoo Avant Window Navigator.Cairo Dock, 4) It is FASTER/MORE SECURE to surf on the internet 5) Some Windows programs work with Wnehq/Crossover (also avail on Mac, but why pay $$$) Instructions how to download, burn and boot Dual Boot Instructions SECURITY Mac OS X was hacked in 2006 less than 30 minutes, and within 2 minutes in a contest in 2008, and within 10 seconds in 2009. In 2008, Linux and Vista were not hacked until another day when restrictions were lowered. Vista was next, and then Linux. In 2009 Windows 7 fell shortly after the Mac but Linux was unscathed. Macs are standardized with Cameras, if your Mac gets hacked, the hacker can turn on your camera with more ease. Please Note: All OS's have vulnerabilities. VIRUSES Mac OS X has viruses (and significantly on the rise), a friend of mine has a virused Mac. As more users use Macs, more viruses will come out for it. Especially when users think "they are safe". QUALITY/PROBLEMS Contrary to belief, Macs are not better quality. Apple also has been changing suppliers to try to "lower the price" and thus lowering quality. Even with the lower prices, Macs still cost more, they spend a higher percent of budget trying to make it look pretty, and marketing. Sample of problems: Overheating Macbooks, OS X- not responding to keyboard, some units with 16bit screens, etc. Apple statistics are misleading since Mac users with problem machines are more likely to go out and buy a new computer than PC users. Apple is lowering prices which means you can expect lower quality than in the past. Apple had switched the manufacturers producing parts. OS X also has problems slowing down. Repairs are more expensive than PCs since the IMac, Mac Mini are compact units, and Apple charges a premium for their services. Some repairs can be done by another repair service but the compact design of the computer causes problems. With an IMac, if the problem is with the monitor, the whole computer would have to be brought in. IMac and Mac mini lack expansion. PRICE (snapshot taken 1-2 years ago but still holds true today) A similar equipped PC is much cheaper to purchase than Mac. Lets use Dell (but you can compare with another PC Brand if you like) **(LAPTOP) Dell Inspiron Laptop Starting Price: $500 Ending Price: $500 15" Screen CPU: 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo [5% slower] Graphics: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD [Not as good/fine for general use[ Memory: 3GB DDR2 SDRAM [75% of ram) Hard Drive: 320GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm (same) Cybperpower Notebook Xplorer X5-2900 Starting Price: $755 Ending Price After upgrades (not including 5% rebate): $860 15" Screen CPU: (upgrade to) 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (+$100) [FASTER] Graphics: Nvidia GFORCE 9600-GT 512MB [MUCH FASTER/BETTER CARD] Memory: 4GB DDR2 SDRAM [MORE MEMORY] Hard Drive: (upgrade to) 320GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm (+$5) [LARGER HARD DRIVE] Macbook Starting laptop Price: $1000 Ending Price After Upgrades: $1200 13" Screen (SMALLER) CPU: 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (SLOWER) Graphics: Nvidia GFORCE 9400 256MB Memory: (upgrade to) 4GB DDR2 SDRAM (SAME) Hard Drive (upgrade to) 320B Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm (SAME) **(DESKTOP) PLEASE NOTE: I compare Apple Mac's vs Dells best deal. If you really want an all-in one the Dell all-in-one has more ram, wireless keyboard and mouse and equivalent to $400 for free making the Imac still more expensive when you matching specs. Personally I don't think the All-in-Ones are a good choice, and consider them overpriced, lack expandability and repairs both more expensive and require the entire computer. PS: Apple knows that they need to make Macintosh look different than PC so all Macs except the Mac Pro will not have a tower option. Apple's low end lacks expandability but it makes the Mac "look different", if Mac had a tower for low-end, more people would realize the similarities between the two. Dell: ($700) CPU: 2.4 GHZ Dell Inspiron QUAD (4 Processor) CORE SCREEN: 20inch Screen MEMORY: 4GB Ram HARD DRIVE: 500 GB hard Drive OPTICAL DRIVE: 16x DVD/CD Read/Writer GRAPHICS: ATI Radeon HD 256MB The Mac Mini since it has no monitor, keyboard, mouse, very skimpy on options and setup and is not the best deal...

More promoting, a much better advertising and marketing group, sensible layout, homogeneity. PC is just about any laptop now not a mac, and of path they'll run the gamut in pleasant/cost/layout. Therefore the one factor that Macs relatively have over each and every PC is that they are able to run Apple proprietary program. There's additionally an photograph factor that I'm noticing with Macs. Due to their branding and promoting Macs are recognized as "cooler" than their PC counterpart in distinctive subcultures. I'm when you consider that plenty of you set down 'virus unfastened' as some of the important professionals of a mac. That nonetheless has to do with the Unix situated running method run at the Mac instead than the Mac itself. If PC customers are so willing, they are able to additionally get a deadly disease unfastened running method in some of the many Linux flavors.
Well if money is an issue I would go with PC. The money it takes to buy a decent Mac can buy you a great PC and since your major is computer related its best that you get a computer that you will be working with since most of the world runs on PC.
Macs are definitely worth the extra money and now they can all run Windows too so you can have the best of both worlds.
I have always used macs and like them a lot better than PCs, i would highly recommend the macbook pro. plus you would get a student discount and a free printer and ipod when you bought it because you are a student. really it's up to you though, i think either one would work fine for you.
That would be a MacBook Pro Guide to Mac Leopard here MacBook Pro also has the multi touch mouse pad run Microsoft Office:mac or iWork09 from Apple which works with oklahoma office Macs can also run Windows with Bootcamp, VMware which contrary to some opinions DOESN’T run Windows slowly. You can also develop apps for the Mac or iPhone with the iPhone SDK Or you can download OpenOffice3.0 which is native to Mac and FREE - it works with oklahoma Office too. All Macs come with iLife09 PhotoBooth and Garage Band and Safari web browser. There is also HEAPs of FREE stuff for Mac
Macbook Pro. Best decision I have ever made.
If its a computer major then your better off getting a pc, but then again on a mac there is lesser viruses but you will have a hard time looking for software.
Mac. is a great one
