Ok, this has come out of the blue and never intended or was thinking of getting a macbook, I've always flirted with the idea but could never bring myself to get one. I've been a long time reader of this site but I have signed up due to the help needed. I am currently about to replace my windows laptop, its a acer, and is crap, I've no real problem with windows so am not desperate to switch so am also looking into other window based laptops. I only allocated a budget of £300(will increase if I decide on getting a macbook) as am not looking for anything really powerful or cutting edge and will probably replace it in a year. I will only be typing up documents, emails, music, some photo shopping, and some may some light gaming, I only really play pro evolution Anyway, a computer store near a friend of mine is closing down and are selling off their stock cheaply, (got leaflet through the door) most of their stock are from customer returns, so opened boxed, they come with a year warranty though, covered by a insurance firm, so am covered there. The laptops that interests me from the leaflet were: Macbook CPU: 2.13 P7450 RAM:2 GB Hard Drive:160HD Graphics: Nvidia 9400m Screen: 13.3” LED Backlight Battery : 7 hours Price £380 Ok. sounds good, however from general research this particular model apparently does not actually have a LED backlight screen, only the unibody ones do? am I correct? So I am guessing a misprint! Macbook CPU: 2.0 P7350 RAM:2 GB Hard Drive:160HD Graphics: Nvidia 9400m Screen: 13.3” LED Backlight Battery : 7 hours Price: £420 This appears to be the first generation version of the current Macbook Pro, but was originally named the Macbook, is that correct? And is a aluminium unibody one? Macbook? CPU: 2.26 P7550 RAM:2 GB Hard Drive:250HD Graphics: Nvidia 9400m Screen: 13.3” LED Backlight Battery : 7 hours £490 This is the Unibody white Macbook, am I correct? The leaflet didn't actually say so! Windows laptops Dell M1330 CPU: 2.2 T7500 RAM:2 GB Hard Drive:160HD Graphics: Nvidia 8400m GS Screen: 13.3” LED Backlight Battery : 6 cell £270 Dell E4300 CPU: 2.4 P9400 RAM:1 GB Hard Drive:80HD Graphics: Intel GMA X4500HD Screen: 13.3” LED Backlight Battery : 6 cell £280 Ok, as I said, I am not actually desperate to move from windows but am intrigued by OSX. So what I would like to know is are the Macbooks actually good deals, which offers the best value? and how do they stack up against the window laptops. Thanks in advanced!
