Why spend £900 to play a game and do basic things when you can spend a third of that on a perfectly good non-Apple pc to do the same thing?
#2
And the debate begins again

Like what? every time I read reviews on other laptops I always end up coming back to the Mac .it seems to me and I don't no a lot about laptops there the best out there any other recommendations
#4
The problem is there are so many to choose from, all pc's have issues, it's just that Apple supporters don't like to admit that they also get issues. I have seen a lot of deals for refurbished Apple products...

I prefer Dell laptops due to price, build quality is pretty good, apart from the battery - but then I always have mine plugged in anyway.
Although you have to select what you want when you order on their website which can be an annoying process.

Macbook pro, i7 ,,,, don't worry too much about storage - you will as most of us apple geeks - use external storage.
Never keep your iTunes library on your macbook -tip for all macbook owners, Put it on a micro sd card and buy one of these - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331295911727?clk_rvr_id=749643593449

About to enter the world of Mac myself. How do you shift I tunes library and why onto a micro card?

If you want an Apple Mac any of them should be able to do what you are asking for. However, people do correctly point out if you are 'only' looking to play Football Manager and other 'basic things' (so I assume Word Processing, iTunes, Surfing the net, etc) a PC at about half the price would be more than adequate for your needs, you could then buy an iPad with the remainder if you don't already have one (that's what I did)?

I'm not anti Apple / Pro PC - I just want to get the right thing for the right job. Something like this would serve you well: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/acer-aspire-v3-371-13-3-laptop-white-10029103-pdt.html#cat-0

I'm selling my Macbook Pro mid 2009 15". It's a few years old, but i've upgraded ram to 8gb and hard drive to 1TB Hybrid SSD and is in excellent condition. £550. PM me if you're interested.

Macs can be hard to upgrade, so get the best you can afford for the cash you have. Perhaps do a Google on the model and see if anyone is offering upgrades so you're covered for the future and you know what upgrades you could have.

Mac's are great machines, if you miss Windows though, just install Virtual Box (free) and you can then install Windows inside that. It works great, so you have the best of both worlds. Saying that, I only really use Microsoft office apps, and the native Mac versions work fine for me, so my Virtual Box never gets used now.

Cheers Ipswich 78 that's the kind of reviews I wanted to see before I parted company with my hard earned cash any other recommendations would be appreciated

I have a hp pavilion g6, 1TB memory, 8GB Ram, i5 processor cost me less than £400 from pc world. Runs football manager better than anything else I played it on, running five countries (England, Scotland, Spain, France and Germany all leagues) and a large database at 4 and a half stars. Wouldn't spend £900 on a Mac for just the basics. (although I had the exact same discussion with myself lol

it's worth it for the build quality alone
then there's the fact that your laptop will last maybe 3 years before it gets unusably slow. A macbook will last 10 years easily
then there's the screen (rMBP reference)
then there's OS X
a macbook has an SSD instead of HDD so will be significantly faster
and there's iOS continuity features

the list goes on and on

(and before you say I'm an Apple fanboy, I have a HTC One m8)

want to spend £900


ON football manager

my recommendation would be a retina Macbook Pro with 16gb ram. Get as much SSD as you need and to be honest, the processor won't really make a difference

in terms of the best deal,
£800 with £100 cashback for a 13' MacBook Pro retina latest model + if you buy the £800 gift card from morrisons you'll pay £730 + quidco.
