Acers are just fine. One my friends has one he spilled mojito, beer, water and something else on it, only his keyboard broke down, has to use external one.

Bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z585 and it's a damn good laptop for the price ($600)

If you're gonna drop $1000 on a laptop that shit better be top notch.

If you already have a desktop PC...

Why not just buy a mac mini for $600 and a KVM(keyboard video monitor) switch for $20..

reuse your existing peripherals and compute like a boss.

Mac Mini is ok, I have one but i don't see hte point of buying a desktop for normal every day use. Once i bought a macbook i stopped using the mini. Nowadays I use the mini it as a home theater entertainment system, watch movies on it, streaming and etc

Mainly because they are overpriced?

Im also calling poor build on the air flow part(mini mac and ipads). My cousin used to work in a Foxconn factory in Czech republic where they assembled and fixed broken ipads. In the breaks they used to browse the hard drives and look for nude pictures from the owners. He said that female ipad owners had tons of dirty stuff on them bottle in the *****, cucumber in the *****, ****ing different guys and so on. One of his colleagues used to copy some of the pics for himself, unfortunately never saw anything.

I read through the thread and although I'm not a tech geek anymore, I remember a huge incident where like more than half a million Macs were infested with a Trojan virus last year. As far as I could remember, there was never such a widespread incident with viruses on PCs, so saying that Mac's are virus free is highly inaccurate.

Anyways, I always liked Gateway products, although ever since acer bought them I had a few problems. I would definitely recommend a Gateway laptop, since the ones I've had were extremely reliable, most of them still running after 4+ years.

Btw if Apple has a 14 day money back guarantee I would say to buy a Mac, see how it feels and if you don't like it, just return it.
