Just kidding. :cheer: LOL. Now that I got your attention..

I'm going off to college next year, and I need a laptop. Would you guys recommend a Mac or just a regular laptop like from Toshiba? And any ideas on where to get a cheap, affordable, good laptop?

It REALLY depends on your major.

Lot of people are overrating Mac and I personally dislike that..
They're just looking down on Windows as if its piece of garbage. The thing is, most of 'Mac' lovers, do not know anything about computers and they're just saying all these positive things based on the "easy" access they're experiencing.

But yes, Mac is better then Windows in SOME way, at the same time Windows too in another.

I am a graphic designer who attends design university. They "forced" us to buy and use Macs during our school year. The school does a great job supporting students with laptop issues and provides really good software with design tools. Thing is, our school supports Apple and are Mac profession'd. In this case, getting Mac is better then Windows to take school's computer fee into advantage, along with the offers they're giving you (Free adobe legit copies, plus other mac softwares).

With Windows, you can customize it in so many ways, in so many things. If you are a gamer or has your own way of using computers (small additional software that mac does not support, like Vegas pro, Virtual Dub, Goldwave, Fraps, Fruity loops etc etc), Windows is your man.

By all means, if you really want, and has the budget, you can buy a mac and install 'bootcamp', which is basically installing windows on your mac. This allows you to boot into different OS during the computer's start up. I got bootcamp on my mac and I am able to do both.
Note that bootcamp doesnt mean you're running both OS at the SAME TIME. You CAN do that but it will be shit slow. (VM Fusion, parellel, theres shit load of apps you can use to do that).
You gotta restart to change from Mac to Windows or Windows to mac.
The positive side to this is, you can access Windows file from Mac easily, but cannot save or add anything onto Windows.

In worse scenario, your windows get fucked up by a virus, it will 99% not effect Mac side. You can remove Windows in literately 5 seconds, and reinstall (1~2 hours). You can always recover or retrieve file easily from mac side, incase you cant boot into Windows.

Negative side is, your windows isnt running in full capacity and there are downsides. Like wireless being extremely poor and chokes after long-term usage, which forces you to restart every 2 hours ish or what not (only if you got wireless turned on.)
I mean with PC Laptop, Im sure you can customize various parts and things, where as Mac its a given set.

In the end, if you really don't need mac, you're good with Windows.
LETS say,
Mac with 2.7 Ghz, 500Gb HDD, 2Gbs Ram, GeForce 8800GTX
is $2,200.
The SAME spec on windows would be $1,500~1,700. See what I mean? You're paying more for same spec, but does have advantage of installing both OS.

Its your call :P

If you will be using your laptop for moderate gaming also, look at the ones around 1,000$
I recommend ASUS.

@elite
I didnt say Mac IS better then Windows.
I meant to say, both OS has PROs and CONs. Windows are better in some way and Mac can be better in another way. You cant solidly say one OS is better then the other, was what I was trying to say :P just those apple fans piss me off hahahah

Just dont buy Dell....

Asus for gaming I agree,
HP and Toshiba aint that bad.....
Dell is piece of shit (sorry... but its true..)

Lenovos are good computers/laptops I heard. Whatever you do don't get a for the same exact reasons Vijore said. You can get a good laptop for $1000, you just have to look around and like Merq or Elite said, it depends on your major though.

What's your price range?

I'm majoring in accounting.. LOL. Nothing too much with computers, at least I don't think so. For the price question, um. I'm just tryna get a good laptop, that could play games & not crash on me that easily. Something that's worth the money.

IF you are going to get mac, yes get Apple care, its 100% beneficial.
My MacbookPro is 3 years old and its brand new from screen to logicboard to battery x3, to even exterior damages (That was inside help :P )

Lol Swane, why not? Prom's fun especially if your friends are going! I went last year, and it was pretty fun.

I don't think I've heard of ASUS yet.. haha. Is it worth the $$?
Macs seem pretty expensive, but I was thinking about it. How much is the warranty?
