Hi Warriors,

I think its time to upgrade my SONY laptop of 3 years...

Was wondering which laptop to get next?!

Apple Mac? Sony again? or any other?

Any suggestions?

      Well what do you need it for? I personally I enjoy macs because the software and UI is better.

        Mac has limited software and the UI can be cloned in windows easier. Also the hardware is more expensive and again typically less powerful than standard pc hardware. I'm pretty sure you're not even allowed to take out the laptop battery without breaking the warranty...In fact I think i read they even soldered it into the hardware with newer versions... yeah here you go How Apple Made a Non-Removable Battery Sound Awesome | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

        Batteries degrade overtime, that's why they struggle to hold a charge after a few years, I'm sure apple knows this they just don't care. I wouldn't be surprised if trying to upgrade the ram voided the warranty either...the company is crazy, pc laptops just make lot more sense to me, and are cheaper and you can do whatever you want with them. It's possible mac laptops may even forbid you from installing a different os...not sure though.

    They are also large, heavy, and produce a lot of heat!
    Melvin, give us a budget, and any preferences you have and we can go from there.
    What are you familiar with? What is important to you - portability, screen size, etc?

    alienware top gaming laptops but typically overpriced, I highly recommend you browser newegg.com at their laptops and the users comments, it's like the amazon for computing, very nice. I think lenovos are solid. You definitely want an intel processor, i5+ would be great, stay away from AMD, and a few gigs of ram at least. I'd stay away from macs personally, apple trys to dictate everything, and their hardwares almost always way over priced and under powered.

    Would like to afford a mac but wondering if the process across is worth it. Got an Acer at the moment of about 4 years. Need to update too. Looking for a fast processor, quite, doesn't produce heat as this one produces loads!

    I use a Dell. This is the second one I've purchased. I like it pretty good.

    I would love an Apple, but it's not in the budget right now. I think my next one will be an HP. I don't game, but I do run a lot of streaming media. My poor old budgie of a laptop can't cope with it right now

  • I run my entire business off a Macbook Air 13". This thing deals with everything I through at it like a champ. Best laptop I've ever owned.

  • Most of the people will suggest macbook, dell, hp etc. But I would like to suggest you laptops from Gigabyte. Gigabyte is new in laptop market and they have got some very good products in lesser price. Their service is very good. You can go for it without any tension.

    I used business line Dell and HP for many many years for my J-O-B. Yet if I had preference I would go with ultrathin laptops for mobility. Intel, ASUS, Dell and Apple has them. You can really be coffee shop millionaire
