I’m Not Switching

This post is mostly for the debate i’m having with Macaholiq8 …. i actually want him to convince me to switch to mac. Unfortunately, i’ve yet to find a reason.

I have done my “research” of notebooks i have on my “watch-list”. I split the notebooks into two categories: desktop replacement and portables – to be fair.

Desktop Replacements

Portable Notebooks

Click on Table For Full Size

So there you have it. Neither the Macbook or the Macbook Pro actually wins with its competition, So unless an upgraded MBP emerges with a reasonable price…im not switching.

    I said it before, it’s a matter of taste/preference. Let me put it this way and please excuse my silly example…

    If you think oranges are better than apples that doesn’t make apples bad, it’s just your own predilection. They both come from a different tree, they both have different characteristics, and they both don’t taste the same, thus, you can prefer one over another but cannot compare them with each other. Now when it comes to comparing oranges with oranges or apples with apples that’s the right comparison. There’s red apple, green apple, yellow apple, and god knows if there’s any other color. That’s as simple as I can put it. In this case there’s the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.

    No one’s stupid enough to buy a Mac if he’s going to run Windows natively. There are better options within that category, even a stupid Acer can be more practical and much cheaper than Apple.

    Buying an Apple portable means you compare it with other Apple portables, the ones that can run the same OS and fall under the same category where the 17″ MacBook Pro sits on top.

    So anyways… It’s up to you to decide whether to buy an orange or an apple, that’s your taste and your conviction. Hope you got my idea and wishing you all the best in your search for the ultimate machine.

    Good luck! 🙂

    MacaholiQ8: lool…nicely made ur point…. i actually like the orange/apple example 😛 … i guess i’m gonna switch to a mac simply because i want to change and try something new….and the fact that Macs are made for music/multimedia/entertainment….my only objection is that if it’s such a multimedia powerhouse, then why doesn’t it have hi-def???

    also, is anyone expecting a price cut off of the MBP’s soon? I don’t want to be the stupid dude that buys the item one day before it goes on sale 😛
