The Question Club
I'm looking to buy a laptop for college. I am not a gamer or video maker/editor at all. I just surf the net (a lot) and would use it for school work. I went out shopping today and went into an Apple store. For about 1350, I get what I need, an iBook, printer and their version of microsoft office. When I talked to Dell the other day, I got everything I needed for about 1300. Now price is a about a push. With an iBook I also get a free iPod which I really want. So I'm leaning towards that. The only problem is that I've had a PC my whole so life so I'm somewhat hesitant to get the iBook. Can anyone who has used both PC and a Mac tell me if the difference is huge? What would you get?|
My two options:
1. Dell Inspiron 6000 15.4 inch monitor, Microsoft office, DVD/CD burner, 15 month McAfee, 4 year warranty, printer, backpack, and security cable for 1299.63 - 100 mail in rebate.
2. Apple iBook G$ 14 inch, DVD/CD burner, stock warranty, printer, iPod, and Window/PC office made for macs for about 1299 plus tax - 100 instant rebate. I have to pay for the iPod and printer up front but I get full mail in rebates on both of them.
