    I bet you'll find way more people using iOS devices with a PC, than people using Windows Mobile devices on Mac ...

    Wanting to get a new computer, but can't decide whether to get a good Windows laptop or pay more for a MacBook. I don't make a ton of money. So I'm not sure if the more expensive MacBook is best or not. But I want something that'll be good.

    You can get a great laptop regardless if whether you choose Windows or Mac. Think about what your budget is and whether you already have a software investment. I'd start with those questions.

    If Microsoft had put there financial might and some passion in developing there mobile operating system in the beginning they would have got a jump on Apple and they wouldn't be seeing the vast majority of there PC users carrying iPhones and droids around

    They dropped the cast iron safe in the mobile sphere big time

    Is the reason for people on here not owning a Mac a price thing? Or just simple preference?

    For me, it's simple preference. However, I have a quandary. I don't like Windows 8. So I'll have to either buy used or scour the web for a Windows 7 machine.

    That or get a Mac.

    I have a PC server for gaming and hosting Remote Desktop connections. I've had some beautiful Macs though and I'd be lying if I said I didn't sometimes miss them.

    Dell and HP both sell Windows 7 PCs. Quite openly on their sites as well.

    I use a Mac Mini. I don't use it for gaming (got my xbox 360 for that). It's a great machine with a very small footprint.

    I really would love to see them update the Mac minis to haswell CPUs, but at this point they might as well just wait for broadwell I think.

    Thanks for this. I do love my current HP, However it's had the motherboard replaced twice. AMD is also giving me issues with their updates and it keeps having failures. I think I need to look into Intel. What do you think of Intel VS AMD?

    I've always used AMD processors and never had a problem. I've had an Athlon XP 2500+ and a Phenom X4 9550 both are desktop processors.

    I'm wondering if there isn't a difference between desktop and laptop processor quality. I have had an AMD desktop at work with zero issues. Where as this is my first laptop with it and all I've had since day one is issues.... The work one got way more use and it never had any issues.

    Mine have been used for gaming, I've gone 12 hours straight with no issues or slow downs or heat issues. Is the AMD processor in your laptop an APU?

    Yeah. I picked a bad one though I think. I'd originally only got it to replace my HP DV-6 1030us. Someone stole it right out of my apartment while I was at work. I cried for a long time over that laptop. I got a great deal on it from Craigslist when a college kid had to sell it to get a Mac for his college art classes.

    Yeah AMD APU's aren't that great, intel's offerings are better in that area.
