Need a new laptop

Postby KarlPeriera » Thu, 28 Jul 2011 11:57 am

So there is an IT Fair over at Funan next month and I'll be buying my laptop there except for one tiny problem. haha.

I've been using Windows OS for as long as I can remember.
Using iphone makes me want to change to Mac.
Read the review for the Lion OS and I'm impressed.

So confuse soul here. Mac vs Windows?
What do you think guys?
Smile!

Mac can run Windows as well as they come with Intel chips. You just need to buy a Windows 7 for Mac separately. The manual will help you make a partition and install etc...pretty easy DIY. Mac OS will always be your primary OS anyway. Cheers.

I tells ya; with Google on phones (Android), web books (Chrome OS), Google+ indexing everyone and their social connections, Google maps taking pictures of the whole world (there's Street View in Antarctica), Google Ocean and Google Sky, Google fiber high speed internet, solar power plants, those robotic cars (which are now legal in Nevada!), when Larry Page and Sergey Brin finally flip the evil switch, Skynet will be upon us!

Everyone will then be asked "Where were you when it took over the planet?"
