depends what you need in terms of multimedia

I dislike laptops with those touch buttons and blue leds on the top!

tablets wont have blu ray anyway, unless you are talking about foldback screens and not ipad....
a heavy laptop you will end up leaving at home, bit of waste.

hmmm


option E i think for you, concentrate on that laptops battery, more so than other stuff

With your cash buy now and then get another later

it seems the most expensive part of the package is the screen, true hd screens, and led backlit (much better) and the achilles heel of laptops: a decent viewing angle, are a problem

not sure if the next wave will solve that issue, as far as the existing hardware goes, the intels run cool on big laptop, and the current intel video is fine with all hd content.

same with speakers, too many make your ears bleed

i am a fan of the trustedreviews site, and might be worth keeping your eye open on there.

LED doesn't change the issue of viewing angles, they seem to allow bad viewing angles on laptops due to the expected usage. does make the blacks blacker though and save a bit of power.

yes, the old wait and see what comes out! depends how itchy you are !

Have you thought about a Macbook at all? Know they're really steep in terms of what you get and you might wanna windows machine but I've gotta say since i 'switched sides' I've been over the moon with my Mac.

hang the traitor! :w00t:

seriously, having rarely seen them in the wild (never in business) what were your thoughts in the early days? what was hard about the change?

First day i got it I remember I was over the moon with how it looked but then within a few hours later I was worried with the fact i had no idea how to use OSX... Flash forward to one week later and I was up too speed and since then I've loved my Mac.

My current set up is a Macbook Pro and an Nc10 (need both portable as I'm moving all the time) and have to say the hardest thing about moving from Windows to Mac is the difference in Microsoft office. Windows office is such a better package. iWork is quite good though and is really functional now in terms of document types.

i agree on the looks, i cant justify the change as on a direct hardware front the price is way over, and a fair pc can be had for 350, no such mac exists

otherwise, any OS is a change (still grabbing onto my XP here!)

software wise, i dont use ms office now anyway, (google docs maybe abiword) so some software issues not so bad

maybe the reduced amount of free software might put me off, but not having to reinstall the system for some nasty download is a big plus

pc for me now is very much an appliance, cheap, and life is so much online now, computer specs dont really mean anything now, they all run well

Yeah the price is definitely a massive negative. I kind of see the Mac market a bit like houses though, because they hold their re-sell value quite well (and as long as you have apple care) the cost of updating is mitigated by the cost of selling of your old Mac. (Thats what I did anyway!).

Definitely agree on the software point though, it's amazing how much is online now with the likes of Google Docs etc. A decent netbook can pretty much fulfil most peoples basic computing needs!
