the mac is fine but look at it this way can you do something on a mac that you could not on a pc
yeah, surf the web and check email without having to constantly be patching the OS and running AntiVirus programs (extra $$$) and constantly running AdAware or Pest Patrol.
that's just one thing thats nice
...and if the pc is cheaper maybe you can get the super mac daddy pc for the same price
? what is the "super mac daddy pc"? does it run OS X?
if you want to play games on your laptop, get a fast Windows machine.
...having the fastest biggest and badest notebook that can be built make sure you can up grade and have a way to expand your possiblitys for making your work faster better and more yourself more effeciant
