Perhaps I'm asking the wrong lot I'm a Mac user myself, but looking to pick up a cheapish PC laptop for a host of reasons. I'm hoping to get some advice from other Mac users who might be able to share their experiences. Currently using a 2010 MBP 2.4 Core 2 Duo... Looking for something naturally faster in a Windows laptop. Would I be able to get something decent in the $500 range? I'm thinking Intel i5...would love i7 quad cores but think they're out of my budget. Hoping for a decent video card and 14" in size.
