Man, I figured it wouldn't be that hard to choose a laptop but nope, I was wrong. At least you can go test drive what car you want. There needs to be more stores where you can actually play with the computers. Not like Best Buy and their crappy program you can't get out of. I'm very tempted to take the 4 hour drive to the closest Apple store. Right now, it's between the Compaqx1000 and the 15"Pbook. Both are great computers but my main deal is deciding i wanna switch over to Macs or not. So basically what I'm asking you guys to do for me is to act like you work for Apple and sell me over to Mac. I can order the laptop at any time and I'd like to get it done a.s.a.p. so if there's any problems I won't be without it when school starts. So guys, help a brother out a bit. Thanks in advance.
