    [QUOTE=Penny2Coles]dont hate because we got your woman to switch :cool:[/QUOTE]

    No hate.....as I told her, for her future profession she made a good choice. A schoolteacher doing some light Word and websurfing and email can do that just as well on a Mac as a Winbox.

    If she were going into business, very different story.

    here's a quote that IS actually in the article he linked:[/QUOTE]

    Tha article also points out that Jobs was so blinded by the pretty menus and the sweet mouse that he missed the chance to steal the Ethernet from Xerox. I thought that was funny.

    Mac's are very s l o w . Do the Intel Macs make things faster?

    SAR, your art department must still be rocking power pc's. your knowledge is so warped. my dual g5 can render 5 minutes of multi-layer/multi-effects video (that's 10,000 images) [i]in HD[/i] in less than a minute in final cut. that used to take HOURS a mere 5 years ago on either platform (using premiere on a PC).

    [URL=http://reviews.cnet.com/4531-10921_7-6484737.html]here are some benchmarks[/URL] for you. and keep in mind wherever they're equal, the macbook is in a different class than the PC's it's being compared to - it's a full pound lighter and has more batterylife. all else equal, it's getting more speed from less energy.

    With that said,if I purchase a windows based laptop should I..
    A)buy what I want now with a windows xp OS
    B) or wait until windows vista comes out early next year??

    any input would be greatly appreciated..

    Depends on how bad you need...The thing with tech is the longer you wait the more machine you get for your money.,..So you may wait for the new IS but end up getting a machine that's a bunch more powerful too....Of coarse is Vista is a bigger hog then XP, the benefits of the extra hardware could be erased...

    I Vista is a big pig, you may have to buy a lot more machine to get acceptable performance...I know from personal experience that far too many MS developers rely on ever increasing hardware performance to cover programming inefficiencies...

    It's always hard because the tech changes so frequently. Experiance though shows that new OS usually means a lot more machine needed to run well.. I'm sure there's people on here that no the answer to that question for sure though...I stopped paying attention a few years ago.. :)
