Hello all, This is my first post to this forum so if this post is in the wrong place or not appropriate for this forum please delete it. I have just graduated high school and my Dell is now about 3 years old and I am ready for something new. I am considering either a Mac Book Pro or an IBM T series. For me the most logical purchase would probably be the IBM because I am going to major in Business and I currently ship orders for my online store and UPS does not make a printer that works with Macs so I would need virtual PC...which I hear cannot run everything that a regular windows machine can. .Anyway I really like the Mac Book Pro for its aesthetics and I am a fan of OSX because of its stability...and again its attractive appearance. My biggest concern is that I will have compatibility problems and that Apple does not offer the hefty warranty that Dell and IBM offer. I am very hard on my computers because I use them a lot and they move around quite a bit. During the 3 years I have had my Dell with comprehensive protection and next day onsite repair I have gone through 3 screens, 3 batteries, 2 motherboards, 4 keyboards...aside from the keyboards everything else that was replaced may have needed replacement because of the low quality of the components because my case is actually almost in perfect shape. I have always been a fan of Apple and IBM because of the quality of their components but I am a little worried with the lid of the Mac Book Pro as when you shut the lid it doesnt seem like it closes all the way if you look at if head on there is a good size gap between the top of the base and the screen. I looked at all the ones in the Mac store and they seem to have this problem . I guess when it breaks I can just get the latch replaced. Anyway I really want a Mac over a boring old IBM .I would really liked to be convinced into a Mac but right now it seems like the IBM is the way to go. Please convince me otherwise.
