    $450. It does everything I need. Why buy an Apple for over $2000?

    Wow $450 is a great price. HP are nice.
    What about RAM and what kind of processor does it have?

    I doubt you'll get soup-to-nuts for only $450.

    because if memory serves, I believe that Howard told us that the Apple "just works, robin.... it just works."

    ERGO

    anything other than apple doesn't work. it just sits around and collects welfare... anything else, robin?

    Soup and nuts are not worth an extra $1,550

    Most people don't need a high end laptop.

    For general office purposes, all you need is something that can run the Office suite and the internet.

    No need to spend 4 times as much on something that looks "cool."

    Fuck Apple.

    exactly. Mom needed a new computer last year. All she does with it is play simple games, FB and email. Bought her a tablet instead. Works perfect for her uses. There are some really nice high end, blazing fast laptops out there for big bucks. A waste if all you do is watch porn and browse the internet.

    That and fantasy football.

    I've never understood getting a computer with all the bells and whistles, when the thing usually start slowing way down in 4-5 years.

    Hell, I'm posting from my iPhone now.

    I used to look for expandability. Stuff like slots for more RAM and the ability to upgrade the processor in the future. Now?

    You can get a pretty sweet fucking desktop for cheap. And I'm done with laptops at this point what with the tablets and smart-phones. Taking notes on a laptop is distracting for me because with WiFi everywhere, I can't help but get on the net.

    you'll eventually get spam, bugs etc...and your net will slow down. Apple products usually don't have that problem.

    well first because apples don't cost > $2000 unless you get the top of the line. second, because it works. all windows machines run well the first few weeks.
