Alright readers! I need some advice. Permit me to ask for some personal advice from the more knowledgeable of you out there. My laptop will be 2 years old soon and instead of having a birthday cake with 2 candles for my laptop, I am thinking of replacing it with a newer one. The dilemma I’m having is what laptop I should replace it with.
I’ve loved my laptop dearly. It is a Dell Studio XPS (pictured here) with an Intel Core 2 Duo (2.4 GHz), 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive (@ 7200 RPM) and an ATI 128MB graphics card. I realize that these specs are still pretty good and that my laptop can still handle its fair share, but what can I say. I’m a techie nerd with a constant hungering for upgrades.
I’ve pretty much narrowed my choices down to 2 options, but am open to more suggestions. On the one hand is the new Dell XPS laptop with a 3GB NVIDIA graphics card, an Intel i7 processor, 1 TB hard drive and 8GB RAM. On the other hand, I’ve been looking at the new MacBook Pro laptops with similar hardware specs. I am in college and do not have tons of money to throw around, but a large part of me wants to be persuaded to go Mac and never look back.
I love fast computers with powerful graphics capabilities. Let me know what you guys think I should go for, as I am in a bit of a quandary. Feel free to take sides in the PC vs. Mac debate if you feel you need to as well. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated and I will write later about what decision I made! Thanks again!
