Are you talking about Asus here...because they make some solid laptops which get great reviews.

I'm wondering if you mistook Acer for Asus?????

1.) You're gonna spend more money for a Mac.
2.) On top of that you're gonna buy Windows so you don't have to use the Mac OS?

Why don't you save about $1,000 and avoid the Mac middle man?

Buy an Alienware or Sony if you want quality. You get off cheaper and have a much more flexible system.

Excellent answer. That's what I would do also.

A mac is a good choice for rich people who couldn't be trusted to program a VCR.

Macs: Good customer support, compatible hardware, no fuss as you can't put something on it that won't work, Expensive
PCs: Customizable, generally bad customer support, if you don't know what you're doing you'll have problems, Cheap

Buying a Mac makes about as much sense as cutting off your balls with a rusty pair of scissors.

MAC internal hardware is the same as the PC equivalent.


If you aren't going to touch OSX, then do as others have suggested - look for a better PC brand / specs and save some $$$.

I'd look into either a Dell, Asus or Lenovo Thinkpad if I were you. Should be able to get a better system spec wise for less money versus the Apple.

I've been using a 13.1" MacBook at home for about 2 weeks that I borrowed from work. Lets just say that it's fine...but there is no way that I will be buying a MacBook anytime soon.
Dell is a good brand, Asus = NOOO, its so bad its like comparing a Commodore 64 with a Alienware


?? What is wrong with ASUS, please inform me.

My dead 9600GT shorted, but that could have been a factory glitch. Never bought a factory PC again. Never buying Asus either. Come to think of it, thats an idiotic name for a company.
