I'm in need of some advice regarding build quality/longevity of the Macbook Pro. We've always bought cheapie PC laptops and have been going through them about every 2 years. We don't have a desktop, so our laptop gets used a LOT. Because they crap out so quickly, I had been of the mindset to continue to buy inexpensive laptops (as in, why waste money if it's going to break in 2 years regardless). I know people love their Apple products, but I assumed it was more of a style issue. Recently, though, a friend kept going on and on about the better build quality and longevity of her Macbook Pro. My question is - really? I am looking for a laptop that will stand up to frequent use, being carried around a lot, sometimes being sat on by cats, etc. If I can get more years out of it, then maybe it is worth the more than double price increase from a cheap laptop. I don't want to pay extra for fancy-computer-street-cred, but I will pay extra for a laptop I won't be cursing at in two years... Thanks!
