Microsoft won't stop supporting XP until at least the year 2010. Also, Microsoft said they might even keep supporting til 2014.

I just recently bought an HP laptop. It's a bit pricey compared to other brands, but I'm happy with it's performance so far.

Hp has been getting crappy. I have had 2 HPs. The first one was great, but the second one i ended up selling because i didn't like the performance.

HP laptops are pretty good. I've tried their tablet and windows vista laptops. No problems with them.

I'd rather buy a mac because windows keep on producing new OS that's why when you buy a computer it always gets outdated.

I guess mac do update their OS too right? But I guess not too frequently. Correct me if I'm wrong.

They do update their OS, but before they release it they do tons of testing. So they know there are no bugs in it.

It's getting really popular in my country and according to what I've heard, it's stable and better for presentations. How true.. I don't know.

Oh is it? I always thought that most applications can be used on both the windows system and mac system. So far I have always thought that only games are affected by the different operating systems.

All dell laptops have windows. The only laptop you can get with the Macintosh os is a macbook.

Lol, internet - Ronald McDonald said it all. Internet: it's serious business.
Depends on your price range and what you're going to do with it. If you're into gaming and customization, get a Windows laptop. If you want to do word processing, art programs, or pretty much anything else and you have some money to burn, get a Mac. They are great for a lot of things for day-to-day life, and although they cost more, are well worth it. Plus, you get the added bonus of running Windows if you want.

If you are going to use the laptop for school purposes or just get it on it for sites like mylot. Or if you use it for music get a macbook. If you are going to use it for business get a windows OS. They are more reliable for businesses. Also, i recommend the Toshiba laptop if you go with windows. I Have had great success with them. I hope this helps you out.

I'll be using it mainly for school purposes and for presentations. That's why I am actually considering a macbook. Thanks for your advice.

well the thing is I am very fond of Macintosh and I will definitely love to buy one of the thing is it depends on what is the use of the computer which I mine. If the other's offers which I will be using which are not compatible with a Macintosh operating system then definitely it will not be a good choice to buy. Whereas it it is related to graphics and animation or general-purpose use like surfing the Internet maintaining documents then Macintosh is a good option but then it will be a bit expensive than a normal as the top computer or even a laptop.

I would definitely get a macbook, given the positive reviews on the net. The problem is my tight budget. I couldn't even upgrade my desktop computer.
