    I think it just depends on your allegiance to apple or windows. Apple is generally less effected by viruses and that sort of crap.

    Apple is affected by fewer viruses cause it's not worth hackers' precious time to infect, what, five hundred computers nationwide?

    as a lifelong windows user, i personally find mac's to be counterintuitive to everything i learned on PCs (which are, by nature, illogical, but hey...). a good number of my friends who are into art/film/photography swear by their mac's, but my experiences with iPod lead me to view Apple products as expensive, hard to repair, and trying **WAY** too hard to be cool. just my two cents

    Go here and select 5001 to 1000$
    http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineS...=22&l=en&s=dfh
    then for the model go to :Inspiron 6400
    Then click the blue "price"
    my core dou 1600( 1.6ghz 2x) 1 gig of ram
    Blows away my sisters 2.8ghz pentium 4 at 512 ram
    It runs everything I mean one cpu to a high
    resource needing aplication one to windows and it will never stall.
    I am happy with it maybe if I get into (basic really basic)CGI or
    game making I may upgrade the cpu.

    i just plan to use the notebook for school. nothing fancy. i dont plan on making fancy pic slideshows or anything like that. so i guess go with windows then right? most colleges and libraries use microsoft office applications anyways. plus, if i were to get a mac, wouldn't i end up having to convert a file to a windows file?
