I don't really know why I'm even asking this because most people will probably say it's really my decision and depends on my needs. Anyway, i recently fried my mid-2009 15" Macbook Pro and now need a replacement. My mom is going to help me out with getting a new one, but I rather not spend 2,000+ on a new one. Now I'm torn on whether I should go back for another Mac, or return to Windows. If I go Mac again, I plan on buying a refurbished 15" i5 Mac from Apple for $1529. This one to be exact. http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC371LL/A?mco=MTgwOTc2ODA But, I did have my eye on this ultra-gaming PC, the Asus G73JW for 100 cheaper, brand new. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Notebooks-_-ASUS-_-34220834 I used to game on PC's and would love to get back into it, but realistically the only games I play now are Starcraft 2 and soon Diablo 3. I also produce music in Logic, but using Logic is not 100% necessary, I could use FL studio or Ableton. There are also a good amount of music programs I need that are Windows only, but I can still get them from bootcamp. I just don't know if I'm ready to never have the Mac OS and have a huge 17" laptop (the Asus is damn thick and 8 lbs heavy), although my laptop usually stays stationary in my room and this is my last year of college so...don't know if I really have to have mobility anymore. The Asus is so much more powerful and could last me for many more years than the Mac I imagine. I'm only torn because I don't want to spend big bucks again for a slight Mac upgrade from my old one and have to buy yet another laptop somewhere in the near future. However, I love Mac OSX and could have Windows as well for the few gaming/music things I need to do on that side. So my main uses for this computer are going to be music production, gaming, and photoshop work and possibly film editing.In my situation, what would you guys do? I'll also add that the Asus represents significant change and excitement to my computer experience as I'll have a full-HD display, super fast processing, and will be able to game again, although realistically I don't know how much this will fulfill itself down the line. Getting the mac would essentially be the same experience I've had for the last year and a half with some slight performance boosts.
