Macbook Or Pc Notebook?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :)

I'm looking at buying either a Macbook or a PC notebook.

It's for a home based computer consulting business I'm running. I won't be needing something that has a lot of bells and whistles or like a race car. LOL I'm not going to be using it for gaming.

I'm leaning towards a Macbook since IMHO it's got the best hardware. My brother bought one recently (he's a mechanical engineer) and actually has Windows 7 as his OS on his Macbook.

I've been pricing out different makes of PC notebooks i.e. Sony, Toshiba, etc. and Macbooks ,etc. and was thinking of even having Windows 7 with Linux running underneath as my OS. Also, I'll be using a mobile stick to connect to the internet.

Any suggestions? And what types of laptops/notebooks/mini net-books do you all have and what do you like about them and their specs?

It will help in my decision.

Thanks! :)

Mac books are the same hardware as PC's cost more and overheat because the engineer didn't think CPU's need cooling .... again.

Thank You and thanks for the link. :)

i love my macbook pro for the reason of that it can take hits. That thing is build with great quality (mine is i don't know about new ones). Mine has taken abuse like dropping it steping on it ect and not breaks. Build with quality instead of some of the consumer ones like dell, hp plastic crap. Get a business dell they are good quality too.
