Greetings everyone, For a long time now, I've been the definite Microsoft fan, rejecting everything non-Windows. I own a Dell Vostro 1700 laptop, which is (and has forever been) pure trash, had problems with it ever since 2008, when I bought it - unstable as hell. Then, I got really interested in Apple's products (my friend got an iMac), and decided to 'risk it all' and get an iPhone 4S. Dude. Best buy I've ever made. Period. This thing worked like a charm, did its job each and every time, flawlessly. I really felt attracted to Apple's philosophy of doing things, flawless and clean. Now, my dilemma is fairly simple: I want to replace the pesky Dell with a Macbook Pro, probably 15", but I'm waiting for the imminent 2012 refresh. If I declare myself a super-satisfied iPhone owner, will a Macbook Pro keep up to the praise, or just fall flat when compared to the 'cheaper' PCs in the competition? I'm not a gamer, not even a 'hardcore' computer guy, I only want my gadgets to be as stable as possible, to do their job real fast (not really interested in the numbers, just the what-you-get experience), automatic (so I don't need to manually search for countless driver and definition updates etc.), easy to use (intuitive) and to require as little maintenance as possible. I study international business in University and I'm very passionate about home entertainment (except for gaming), if this helps. Awaiting your opinions on this, as a Mac is kind of expensive and I want to be cautious before buying one. Thanks!
