  1. Go Mac. More expensive up front but no worry about viruses, etc. Went Mac and I'll never go back! I have an iMac, iPad and iPhone. Use the iPad constantly; at under 500 bucks a great purchase. For what I do, way better than any laptop.

    ^^^ Agree the iPad works much better at times than the Mac Book does.

    thanks for the input. valid points on both sides of mac. Best Buy has a 5g ram, 500g mem HP Pavillion for $288. you think all new components would be that cheap for rebuild? Don't need much in a tower. most of my info is on external harddrives. Just need it to find "free" stuff and check waves.

    My MacBook is 5 years old and you can barely use it. We are on the second battery, and it doesn't hold a charge. The OS is painfully slow. We even deleted everything and started from scratch a few years ago. I would never buy another Mac PC. My self built tower lasted 10 years, and only get retired because the main HDD finally gave out. I would personally go for a boutique PC or laptop. I am not an apple hater, btw. My iPhone 4S has given me over 2 years of reliable service, and the new 5s seems just as good.

    I will say Brew is right, for the past two years the battery on my Mac Book has not worked right. It always has to be plugged in, not a big deal since I only use it at home and if I need to be unplugged I use the iPad, but still a pain.

    I think that's the problem. I unhooked it and drug it out for close inspection. Behind the fan the cooling fins were clogged with enough hair to make another dog.

    Haha, that's exactly what I thought too!

    I'm a Mac user, never had an issue and I think they are so much easier to use than a pc. My wife's a graphic designer, pc's can't run the programs she uses for crap. That, and Macs are essentially silent while pc's can often sound like mini jet engines.

    Probably need to clean the filter Holmes. Too much resin
