I really like my Macbook Pro. I have owned both Mac's and PC's, and my Mac's are far, far better computers IMHO. However, depending on your needs, certain applications will only run on PC's. Also, if you are a gamer, there aren't many games made for Mac's.

My HP is a piece.

Next laptop I'm going to buy will be custom made at a computer shop. I got a desktop made probably 7 years ago, it STILL runs circles around this year old dual core.

It was $904 with a custom case, which was about the same price as a comparable dell of the time. I wanted a gaming computer, I never got a game that it couldn't run, and run very well for that matter.
