I know this is a mac site but that does not mean we mac heads look into the "PC" market to get a good PC. I feel sometimes I cannot get serious advise or discussion about a non-Apple computer. Yet, I respect the users here so I look to even answers to questions about non-Apple products. Am I wasting my time here? Should I just go somewhere else for reliable info about Toshiba, Sony, Asus, etc? I'm in the market for a gift for someone who needs a laptop for media consumption rather than production and my budget does not allow for a iPad so I'm looking at anything between $250-$400 and would like to know what is the for lack of better description, the macbook of the PC world of netbook or laptops but feel that no one here takes non-Apple products serious here. Can someone help me out?
