The IBM computer unit was recently bought by a Chinese company. I don't know if the quality has changed, but you might want to look into that before running out and getting an IBM. Then again most computers are assembled in China. Anyway but there may be some design issues.medstyle said:i think ibm is the best for laptops. sony has some cool models out there, but the build of an ibm is the best. if you want a computer mainly to watch dvds or download songs, i'd get a sony; otherwise get ibm.
if cost is an issue, don't get a centrino notebook. they are slower, no matter what they say. the extra batter life is worthless unless u use ur computer on the go alot. my centrino is small and light, but it is slower then my year older athalon desktop.
If price is the only objective get a PC over a mac, there is really no argument there. But I have to say, for normal computing tasks Mac OS X is much more intuitive than win xp. That being said, you can complicate the interface if you want to (go use terminal and have at it with unix) but who really wants a more complicated interface? Also, no virii and no spyware, no random crashes, ilife, seamless compatibility with MS office software on PCs.cammy1313 said:Here's the thing. There are Mac users and then there are Pentium users. I myself am a Pentium gal because I can't stand the over-simplified Mac interface. Macs are generally more user friendly for the computer iliterate but I'm not and so dislike them.
