Tell me about Macbooks... ok.
Over rated, Crap battery life and fatigue, A company that like to hide problems under the carpet rather than deal with them face on.
Spec to £ is totally over rated.. compare spec by spec to any pc alternative in that price bracket and you will see.
Sold to the unknowing as some super computer
Bought by the "cool kids" as a fashion statment
------ Im not arguing pcs are better than macs, but on a purely hardware basis they are. Shame that im in a catch 22 because I need a mac for some of the software I use.
The older Macbooks are alrite if your after a surf the net kinda machine but they are pretty slow... the newer macbooks are totally over priced (hiked up £200 in the last year just because they look "prettyer" yet they have a worse screen, no firewire ports and nothing to justify that £200 hike." the macbook pros are also a little more pricey but with a better screen, firewire ports and still a pretty average spec.
If your emailing, listening to music, want a bit of windows aswell as osx get a 2nd hand ebay macbook for sub £700
If your doing more stuff like simple video editing or photoshop and dont want to waste your life with render and load times get a macbook pro... 2nd hand for around £1000 and new for around £1200
I really do hope the credit crunch affects apple because they are on cloud kukoo yet people seem to lap it up!
