Should I Buy It? A MacBook

September 27, 2010 in Shopping

It’s time for me to upgrade my laptop.  My current Dell and I have been through a lot: law school exams, countless grad school papers, and lots of wasted time on the internet, but I’d like to get something new.  I’m not really a “Mac” person, instead I’m a boring PC, but it seems that Macs are very reliable and can do some great things.  Even my Dad’s trusted Consumer Reports review of laptops agrees. 

Are Mac’s amazing enough to justify spending almost twice as much I would on another Dell?  I’ve gone back and forth on which I should buy for a month now, so what do you think…should I splurge on a new MacBook?

I made the switch to Mac two years ago when I started working on my dissertation. I definitely think that it is worth it. I think that the operating system and the functionality of a Mac is worth it. It just does things the way that I want it to and it very, very rarely does strange things the way that PCs seem to on a daily basis. There are ocassionally programs that I miss out on or have to adopt later because they initially do not come out for Macs, but I haven’t been inconvenienced enough by that to want to switch back.

I think I’m almost ready to make the switch. Thanks for the feeback, Cassie! It sounds like they’re worth the added expense.
